Piano Teacher Bardwell Park – 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 Bardwell Park traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Bardwell Park? 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Bardwell Park piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bardwell Park 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 Bardwell Park 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 Bardwell Park 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Bardwell Park group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano classes 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 lessons.
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 Bardwell Park piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Bardwell Park 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 courses 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 response to 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical background and their primary 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or teach 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 practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations 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 actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 train is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. 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 effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples sooner 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 practice is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
