Piano Teacher Concord West – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Concord West traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Concord West? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Concord West piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Concord West 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 Concord West piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Concord West 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Concord West group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Concord West piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Concord West 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 consider 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were often 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions 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 rehearsed. 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 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 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 diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of rehearse 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 rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance 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 undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact 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 ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child 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 extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
