Piano Teacher Austral – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Austral traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Austral? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Austral piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Austral 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 Austral piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Austral 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 1 on 1? Why not Austral group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano tutoring ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group classes.
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 Austral piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Austral 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.
Typically students take piano classes 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 think the best approach 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 the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop or explain new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice 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 might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us understand how tough that is. How long should practice 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 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking 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 practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become 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 entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
