Piano Teacher Beacon Hill – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Beacon Hill traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.

Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.

When do you offer Beacon Hill piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Beacon Hill 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 Beacon Hill 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Beacon Hill 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 1 on 1? Why not Beacon Hill group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 Beacon Hill piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Beacon Hill 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 classes 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 myself consider the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer 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 train, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

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 practice is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments 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 section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small section they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to help us know how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus 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 anticipate 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 coach 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 tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a career

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
