North Manly 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 North Manly traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please enquire 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 North Manly piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our North Manly 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 North Manly 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 North Manly 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 North Manly group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons 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 1 on 1 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 North Manly piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best North Manly 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.

Normally students take piano lessons 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 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 classes.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to improve or impart 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 rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

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

That’s what happens 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 challenging.

Why Practicing is Difficult

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 segments of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small section they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively 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 style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop 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 practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four 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 happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
