Piano Teacher Dee Why – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Dee Why traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Dee Why? 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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Dee Why piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dee Why 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 Dee Why piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Dee Why 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 Dee Why group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 quicker than students learning in group classes.
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 Dee Why piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Dee Why 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 classes 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 myself think the best approach to answer 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to improve or teach new concepts 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 following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train 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 piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should train 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse 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 varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace 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 right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however 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 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 honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
