Piano Teacher Annandale – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Annandale traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Annandale? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Annandale piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Annandale 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 Annandale 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Annandale 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 Annandale group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano lessons 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 Annandale piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Annandale 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 lessons once a week.
On the other hand 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 answer 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 often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to improve or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer 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 hard.
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 train is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor 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 tutors can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, 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 trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and make 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 desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three 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 finest.
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 spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
