Rydalmere Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Rydalmere? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Rydalmere piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Rydalmere 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 Rydalmere 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 Rydalmere 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 1 on 1? Why not Rydalmere group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano lessons 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 quicker than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Rydalmere piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Rydalmere 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 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 myself believe 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary trainers 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 Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to get better or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Hard

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 distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 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 anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory 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 pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
