Merrylands Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Merrylands traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Merrylands? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?
We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Merrylands piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Merrylands piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.
Weekend lessons are also readily available, please enquire for more information.
How old should my child be to begin piano lessons?
Children as young as five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Merrylands piano teachers are experienced in teaching young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to encourage your child and give them best start in their piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Merrylands piano trainers are qualified to teach all styles of music, whether you’re interested in popular, contemporary, classical, jazz, musical theatre or even Nintendocore (yes, this is an actual genre). However, we encourage our students to explore all genres to show them just how interesting the piano can be.
Why enrol my child in 1 on 1? Why not Merrylands group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano tutoring ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.
Am I too old to start learning to play piano?
NO! There is no set age to begin learning a musical instrument, and the best time to start is right this moment – ie Now!
Learn to play your favourite songs, learn how to read music, learn theory, or just about anything you’d like to know about the piano.
Playing the piano is a fun and great way to exercise your creative abilities so don’t just dream about it, start learning.
What are your Merrylands piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Merrylands piano teachers work with our students.
Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels
- are experienced in playing the piano themselves
- have undergone a NSW Government certified “Working with children” police check
- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Normally students take piano courses once a week.
However if you just give me a minute of your time, I’ll tell you why that’s often not the best way to go.
I personally think the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more small section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
