Piano Teacher Blair Athol – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

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

Please call 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Blair Athol piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Blair Athol 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 Blair Athol 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 Blair Athol 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 Blair Athol group  piano lessons?

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 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 Blair Athol piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Blair Athol 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 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 believe the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or explain 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 rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

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 eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts 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 small segment gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen 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 15 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 practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting 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 trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. 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 practice is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a lecture 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.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
