Summer Hill Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Summer Hill? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Summer Hill piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Summer Hill 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 Summer Hill 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Summer Hill 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 Summer Hill 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 classes 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 Summer Hill piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Summer Hill 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.

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 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to develop or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may 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 remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how hard 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 five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer 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 correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.

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 frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a job

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

A piano trainer will continually be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you want 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 extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
