Piano Teacher Dean Park – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Dean Park traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Dean Park? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Dean Park piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dean 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Dean Park 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 Dean Park 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 Dean Park group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 Dean Park piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Dean 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.
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 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest coaches were frequently 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to get better or impart new ideas to develop 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 practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find 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 train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type of train 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Objectives 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 career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be able 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 issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, 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 really honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
