Newport Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Newport? 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 Newport piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Newport 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 Newport piano tutors 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 Newport piano trainers 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Newport group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 Newport piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Newport 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 lessons 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 answer this enquiry 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 major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

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

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

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 eliminate all distractions 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 inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult 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 afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing 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 everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a business

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will at all times 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 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 really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 best.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
