Sutherland 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 Sutherland traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to Sutherland? 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Sutherland piano class?

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

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 individual 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 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 Sutherland piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Sutherland 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 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 myself believe the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest 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 Training is NOT Sufficient

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

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work 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 minor section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor section they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us understand how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano coach will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial 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.

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

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole 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!
