Piano Teacher Asquith – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

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

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

When do you offer Asquith piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Asquith 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 Asquith piano tutors are experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Asquith 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 1 on 1? Why not Asquith group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 individual lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.

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 Asquith piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Asquith 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 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 personally believe the best approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical family 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 everyday lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify 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 success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really seriously. 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 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 pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
