Piano Teacher Bonnet Bay – 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 Bonnet Bay traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Bonnet Bay? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Bonnet Bay piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bonnet Bay 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 Bonnet Bay piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Bonnet Bay piano teachers 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 Bonnet Bay group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster 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 Bonnet Bay piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Bonnet Bay 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.
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 think the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first 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 daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve 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 suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors 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 occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
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 goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. 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 principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
