Smeaton Grange 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 Smeaton Grange traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please touch base 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Smeaton Grange piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Smeaton Grange 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 Smeaton Grange 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 Smeaton Grange 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 Smeaton Grange group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring 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 private 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 Smeaton Grange piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Smeaton Grange 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 lessons 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 believe the best approach to answer this question 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve 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 practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!

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

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 train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 segment gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that type of train 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 tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

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