Piano Teacher Austinmer – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Austinmer? And on which days of the week?

Please enquire 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 Austinmer piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Austinmer 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 Austinmer piano teachers 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Austinmer 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 Austinmer group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 tutoring.

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 Austinmer piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Austinmer 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 courses 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 believe the best way to answer 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 often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first coaches 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 Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. 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 remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small segment they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that type 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 teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.

Ambitions 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 career

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano teacher will continually be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, 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 delight out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
