Telopea Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Telopea traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Telopea? 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Telopea piano classes?

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

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Telopea 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Telopea group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster 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 Telopea piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Telopea 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 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 believe the best way to response to this enquiry 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest tutors were often 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 Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers 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 practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor segment they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus 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 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 teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a business

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

A piano tutor will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

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