Piano Teacher Carramar – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

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

Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Carramar piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Carramar 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 Carramar piano tutors are experienced in teaching young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Carramar 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 Carramar group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Carramar piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Carramar 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.

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 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 past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest tutors 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 practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop 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 succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately 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 tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more small section they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a career

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!

A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

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