Piano Teacher Elizabeth Bay – 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 Elizabeth Bay traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Elizabeth Bay? 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Elizabeth Bay piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Elizabeth Bay 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 Elizabeth Bay piano tutors 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Elizabeth Bay 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 Elizabeth Bay group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 1 on 1 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 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 Elizabeth Bay piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Elizabeth Bay 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 way to answer 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary trainers 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 Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to improve or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to help us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four 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 pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
