Mount Colah Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Mount Colah traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to Mount Colah? And on which days of the week?

Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.

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 perfectly fine for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

When do you offer Mount Colah piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Mount Colah 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 Mount Colah piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Mount Colah piano teachers 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 Mount Colah group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one 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 Mount Colah piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Mount Colah 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.

Typically students take piano courses 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 believe 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide ideas on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small segment they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.

Realistically

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 depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.

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 heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
