Minto Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Minto traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Minto? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Minto piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Minto 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 Minto piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Minto 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 Minto group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in individual 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.
What are your Minto piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Minto 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.
Usually students take piano classes 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 myself believe the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their first 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 daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, 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 teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
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. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
