Piano Teacher Erskine Park – 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 Erskine Park traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Erskine Park? 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Erskine Park piano lessons?

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

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Erskine Park 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 1 on 1? Why not Erskine Park group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 faster 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 Erskine Park piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Erskine Park 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.

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 personally believe the best way to response to 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 often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 practice is to eradicate all diversions 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 piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to help us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that type 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 coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always 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 complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
