Piano Teacher East Killara – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in East Killara traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to East Killara? 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 East Killara piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our East Killara 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 Killara piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Killara 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 East Killara group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in private lessons progress a lot quicker 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 Killara piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best East Killara 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 classes 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 approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their first coaches were often 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 coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
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 job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, but 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
