Piano Teacher Darlinghurst – 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 Darlinghurst traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please call 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 perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Darlinghurst piano lessons?

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

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano tutoring ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in 1 on 1 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 Darlinghurst piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Darlinghurst 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.

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 believe the best approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest tutors 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 Training is NOT Adequate

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

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

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 rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments 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 gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers anticipate that type 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 coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard 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 afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn 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 want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen often, 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
