Sandy Point Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

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

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

When do you offer Sandy Point piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Sandy 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 Sandy Point piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Sandy Point 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 Sandy Point group  piano classes?

Group piano classes 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 private 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 Sandy Point piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Sandy 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 courses once a week.

However 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 consider the best approach to response to 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest 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 daily lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough

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

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that type 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 coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money 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 really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a profession

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

A piano coach will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find 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.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur 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 finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure 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 mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
