Narraweena Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Narraweena traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.

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 Narraweena piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Narraweena 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 Narraweena piano teachers 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Narraweena 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 Narraweena 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 tutoring ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in 1 on 1 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 start 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 Narraweena piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Narraweena 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 classes 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 consider the best approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches were often 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 Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or explain new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

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 eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to assist us understand how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!

A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue 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 want to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

You get 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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
