Why enrol my child in one-on-one lessons? Why not Bardwell Valley group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 quicker than students learning in group lessons.

Our piano teachers:

- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Normally students take piano courses once a week.
However 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 consider the best way 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical background and their first trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give recommendations on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 rehearse is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 minor segment slowly and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor section 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 hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train 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 focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best 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 study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
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 entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
