Tamarama 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 Tamarama traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Tamarama? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 Tamarama piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Tamarama 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 Tamarama piano teachers 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 Tamarama 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 1 on 1? Why not Tamarama group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.
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 Tamarama piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Tamarama 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 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 personally think the best way to response to this question 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 everyday basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give recommendations on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how tough 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 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur 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 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 seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
