Piano Teacher Casula – 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 Casula traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Casula? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Casula piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Casula 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 Casula 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 Casula 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 Casula 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 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 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 Casula piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Casula 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 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 myself believe 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 everyday basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 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 coaches expect that kind 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 trainer is sitting there. You have the coach 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 challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress 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 practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find 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 accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid 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 principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
