Piano Teacher Darlington – 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 Darlington traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please touch base 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Darlington piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Darlington 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.

Our Darlington 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Darlington 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 1 on 1? Why not Darlington 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 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 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 Darlington piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Darlington 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 courses 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 myself consider the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest tutors were frequently 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 teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach 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 turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. 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 eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse 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 concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that kind of train 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 practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum 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 taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely invaluable.

Realistically

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 deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a profession

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

A piano coach will at all times 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 lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three 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 become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
