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

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer North St Marys piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our North St Marys piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 North St Marys piano tutors 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our North St Marys 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 St Marys 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 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 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.

Typically 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 myself believe 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 the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest 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 Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to get better or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. 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 train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
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 learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find 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 desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole 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!
