St Johns Park 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 St Johns Park traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to St Johns Park? 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer St Johns Park piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our St Johns Park 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 St Johns Park 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 St Johns Park 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 St Johns Park group  piano classes?

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

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 St Johns Park piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best St Johns Park 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 courses 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 question 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 often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first trainers were often 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

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

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important 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 coach do now? Train with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor section they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that kind 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 teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can find 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.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. 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.
