Piano Teacher Dolans Bay – 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 Dolans Bay traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Dolans Bay? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Dolans Bay piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dolans Bay 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 Dolans Bay piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Dolans Bay piano tutors 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 Dolans Bay group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster 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 Dolans Bay piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Dolans Bay 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 courses once a week.

However 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 think the best way to answer this enquiry 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 often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first trainers were frequently 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 ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to develop or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

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 practice is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach 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 tutors can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, 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 teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

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 objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common goals.

Goals 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 objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue 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 right or not.

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

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
