Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

Do your piano teachers come to Millers Point? And on which days of the week?

Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?
We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Millers Point piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Millers Point 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Millers Point piano teachers are experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Millers Point piano tutors 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 Millers Point group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 lessons.
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.

Typically students take piano lessons once a week.
But 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 myself think the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to improve or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit 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 minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type 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 trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money 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 depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
