Piano Teacher Annangrove – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Annangrove? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Annangrove piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Annangrove 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 Annangrove 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 Annangrove 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Annangrove group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Annangrove piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Annangrove 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.

Normally 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 personally consider 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 the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary 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 daily lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to improve or explain new ideas 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 rehearse for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 minor segment gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor section they are not comfortable with and do it again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how difficult 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 effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches 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 occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples earlier 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 practice is completely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a career

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!

A piano coach will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
