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

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 households without a piano.

When do you offer Balgowlah Heights piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Balgowlah Heights 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 Balgowlah Heights 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 Balgowlah Heights 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 Balgowlah Heights group  piano classes?

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

Only the best Balgowlah Heights 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 myself think the best approach to answer this question 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 key 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 possibly gave them daily lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas 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 recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher 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 practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy 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 well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that type 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 coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!

A piano coach will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed 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 principle for a total of four 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 honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
