Piano Teacher Berowra Waters – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Berowra Waters traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Berowra Waters? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Berowra Waters piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Berowra Waters 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 Berowra Waters 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 Berowra Waters 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 Berowra Waters group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker 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 Berowra Waters piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Berowra Waters 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.
On the other hand 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 think the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse 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 concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section 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 more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help 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 older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard 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 everyday, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
