Piano Teacher Burwood – 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 Burwood traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Burwood? 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Burwood piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Burwood 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 Burwood 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 Burwood piano trainers 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 Burwood 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Burwood piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Burwood 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 courses 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 approach to response to this enquiry 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family 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 probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop or explain new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 practice is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus 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 type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard 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 afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
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 deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete 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!
