Piano Teacher Bella Vista – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Bella Vista traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Bella Vista? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Bella Vista piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bella Vista 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 Bella Vista 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 Bella Vista 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 Bella Vista group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One piano lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in individual 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 Bella Vista piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Bella Vista 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 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 consider the best approach to response to 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 olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas 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 succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors 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 rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy 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 effectively 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 interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard 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 allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having 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 rehearse is completely precious.
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 determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover 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 correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
