Piano Teacher Cobbitty – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Cobbitty traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Cobbitty? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Cobbitty piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cobbitty 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 Cobbitty 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 Cobbitty 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 Cobbitty 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 1 on 1 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 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 Cobbitty piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Cobbitty 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 think the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
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 background and their first trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to develop 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 rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 section slowly and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific 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 day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get 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 entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
