Piano Teacher Birrong – 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 Birrong traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.

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 Birrong piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Birrong 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 Birrong piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Birrong 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Birrong group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring 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 individual 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 Birrong piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Birrong 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.

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 myself consider the best way to response to this question 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 often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary teachers were frequently 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 should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. 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 practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor 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 improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer 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 trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a career

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

A piano coach will at all times 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 lesson 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 want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept 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 honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
