Piano Teacher Elanora Heights – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

Do your piano teachers come to Elanora Heights? And on which days of the week?

Please call 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Elanora Heights piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Elanora Heights 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 Elanora Heights piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Elanora Heights 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 Elanora Heights 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 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 Elanora Heights piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Elanora Heights 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.

Usually 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 answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately 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 unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor section they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that kind of rehearse 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 trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily 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. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.

Ambitions 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 career

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
