Piano Teacher Como – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

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

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

When do you offer Como piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Como 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 Como 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 Como 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 Como group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.

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 Como piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Como 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.

Typically 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 believe the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary trainers were often 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 must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the young 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 rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

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

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that style 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 teacher is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent 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 simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a career

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

A piano coach will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, 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 sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 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 pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
