Newington Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Newington traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Newington? 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Newington piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Newington 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 Newington 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Newington 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 Newington group piano lessons?
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 faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Newington piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Newington 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 courses once a week.
On the other hand 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 consider the best way 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. 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 trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher 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 teachers can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
