Piano Teacher Elizabeth Hills – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Elizabeth Hills? And on which days of the week?

Please call 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Elizabeth Hills piano lessons?

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

Group piano classes 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 individual 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 Hills piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Elizabeth Hills 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 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 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 history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical family 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 possibly gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come 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 turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re requesting 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 work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how challenging 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 five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom 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 rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

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

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a profession

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

A piano trainer will continually 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 trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory 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 satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
