Piano Teacher Box Hill – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Box Hill traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Box Hill? 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Box Hill piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Box Hill 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 Box Hill piano tutors 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 Box Hill 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 Box Hill group  piano lessons?

Group piano lessons 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker 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 Box Hill piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Box Hill 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 response to this enquiry 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 frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or teach new ideas to develop the new 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 rehearse 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 important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately 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 coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this may 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 train 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 minor segment slowly and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small section they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased 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 fifteen minutes without getting distracted. 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 exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

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

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a job

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

A piano trainer will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
