Piano Teacher Cherrybrook – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Cherrybrook traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Cherrybrook? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Cherrybrook piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cherrybrook 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 Cherrybrook 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Cherrybrook 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 Cherrybrook 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 classes 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 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 Cherrybrook piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Cherrybrook 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 believe the best approach 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical family 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 daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give 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 train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate 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 small segment slowly and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us understand 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 elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor 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 put right 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 Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely 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 often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
