Picnic Point Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Picnic Point traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Picnic Point? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Picnic Point piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Picnic Point 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 Picnic Point piano teachers 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 Picnic Point 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 Picnic Point group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 faster than students learning in group classes.
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 Picnic Point piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Picnic Point 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.
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 think the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest coaches 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 must work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop 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 following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear 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 happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well 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 style of rehearse 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 trainers can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
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 determining how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific 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, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place 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 finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
