Piano Teacher Clovelly – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Clovelly? 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Clovelly piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Clovelly 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 Clovelly piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Clovelly 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 1 on 1? Why not Clovelly group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 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 Clovelly piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Clovelly 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.

But 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 enquiry 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical background and their first tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide suggestions on how to get better or impart 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 rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts 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 segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small segment they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should train 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 concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. 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 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 trainers can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples quicker 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 absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.

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 business

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 best.

You get 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 complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
