Piano Teacher Croydon Park – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Croydon Park? And on which days of the week?

Please call 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 Croydon Park piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Croydon Park 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 Croydon Park piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Croydon Park 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Croydon Park group  piano lessons?

Group piano lessons 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 private 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 Croydon Park piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Croydon Park 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 consider the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical family and their first 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 everyday lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or teach new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

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 rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen 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 unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers 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 determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.

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