Penshurst Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

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

Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.

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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Penshurst piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Penshurst 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 Penshurst 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Penshurst 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 Penshurst group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 one on one 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 Penshurst piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Penshurst 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.

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 think the best approach 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 daily basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary 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 day-to-day lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re asking 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 work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m finished 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 fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining 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 ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano teacher will always be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem 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.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
