Piano Teacher Canley Heights – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Canley Heights traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Canley Heights? And on which days of the week?

Please enquire 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 Canley Heights piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Canley Heights 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 Canley Heights 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 Canley Heights 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 1 on 1? Why not Canley Heights group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 individual 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 Canley Heights piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Canley Heights 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.

On the other hand 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 consider the best way to answer 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer 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 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 concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer 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 coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

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

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

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

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