Piano Teacher Connells Point – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Connells Point? 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 households without a piano.

When do you offer Connells Point piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Connells Point 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 Connells Point piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Connells Point piano teachers 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 Connells Point group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons 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 individual 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 Connells Point piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Connells Point 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.

However 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 courses.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to get better or teach 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 succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!

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

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 practice is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford 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 really depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a job

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

A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace 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 right or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle 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 heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
