Redfern 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 Redfern traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please enquire 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 perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Redfern piano classes?

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

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 1 on 1 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 Redfern piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Redfern 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 classes 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 personally think 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to get better or impart new ideas to develop 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 practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that type 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 coach 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 pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking 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 practice is undeniably precious.

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 indeed varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, 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 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

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 entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
