Pymble Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Pymble traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Pymble? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Pymble piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Pymble 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 Pymble piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Pymble piano tutors 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 Pymble group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 individual 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 Pymble piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Pymble 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 courses 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 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. 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 sadly even if the student DID train this may 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 remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 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 trainers expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the trainer 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 tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really 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 additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, 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 comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
