Piano Teacher Arcadia – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Arcadia traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Arcadia? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Arcadia piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Arcadia 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 Arcadia piano tutors 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 Arcadia 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 Arcadia group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 Arcadia piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Arcadia 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 classes 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 myself think the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or explain new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly 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 coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach 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 posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
