Terrey Hills 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 Terrey Hills traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Terrey Hills? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?
We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Terrey Hills piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Terrey Hills 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Terrey Hills piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Terrey Hills 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 Terrey Hills group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 faster than students learning in group lessons.
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 Terrey Hills piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Terrey Hills 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.
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 myself believe the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style 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 teacher 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 put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples faster 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 practice is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, 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 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 delight out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
