Pagewood 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 Pagewood traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to Pagewood? 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 great for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.

When do you offer Pagewood piano lessons?

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

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster 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 Pagewood piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Pagewood 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 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 approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to get better or impart 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 train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. 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 practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments 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 small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small section they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that kind 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 trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.

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 varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a job

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

A piano coach will continually be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, 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 4 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 satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
