Piano Teacher Crows Nest – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Crows Nest? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Crows Nest piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Crows Nest 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 Crows Nest piano teachers 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Crows Nest 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 Crows Nest group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 tutoring.

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 Crows Nest piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Crows Nest 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.

Normally students take piano courses 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 personally 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!

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

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 segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different small section they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how tough 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 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens 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 correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop 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 practice is absolutely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed 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 best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
