Piano Teacher Clontarf – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Clontarf traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Clontarf? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Clontarf piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Clontarf 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 Clontarf 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 Clontarf 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 Clontarf 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 lessons 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 faster than students learning in group lessons.
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 Clontarf piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Clontarf 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 lessons 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 think the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to improve or explain new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse 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 outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting 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 segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers 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 teacher 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 tutors can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that practice is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, 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 indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become 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 entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
