Piano Teacher Brookvale – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Brookvale? 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Brookvale piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Brookvale 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 Brookvale 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Brookvale 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 1 on 1? Why not Brookvale group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 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 Brookvale piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Brookvale 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.

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 myself believe the best approach 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or explain new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should practice 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 be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs 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 teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common ambitions.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano coach will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really seriously. 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 always the finest.

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 whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. 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.
