Scotland Island 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 Scotland Island traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Scotland Island? 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 households without a piano.

When do you offer Scotland Island piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Scotland Island 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 Scotland Island piano tutors 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 Scotland Island 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 Scotland Island 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 lessons 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 faster 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 Scotland Island piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Scotland Island 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.

Usually students take piano classes 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 personally think the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice 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 hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!

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

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 practice is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting 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 trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse 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 indeed depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a job

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

A piano coach will always be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however 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 best.

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 full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
