Piano Teacher Elderslie – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Elderslie traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Elderslie? 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Elderslie piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Elderslie 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 Elderslie 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 Elderslie piano trainers 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 Elderslie group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.

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 Elderslie piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Elderslie 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 myself think the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to get better or teach 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 rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

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

That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Challenging

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 diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments 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 condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m finished 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 fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that type 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 teacher is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train 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 challenging time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having 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 invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a business

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a tutorial 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 desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, 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 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.
