Piano Teacher Eastlakes – 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 Eastlakes traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to Eastlakes? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Eastlakes piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Eastlakes 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 Eastlakes 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Eastlakes 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 Eastlakes group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 1 on 1 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 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 Eastlakes piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Eastlakes 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 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor 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 coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common ambitions.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a career

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano tutor will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial 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.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.

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

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
