Piano Teacher East Hills – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in East Hills traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to East Hills? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer East Hills piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our East Hills 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 East Hills 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our East Hills piano teachers 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 East Hills 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 faster than students learning in group lessons.
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 East Hills piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best East Hills 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.
Normally 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 believe 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 the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical experience 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 probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to get better or explain new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 rehearse is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
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 often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
