Piano Teacher Fairlight – 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 Fairlight traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Fairlight? 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Fairlight piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Fairlight 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 Fairlight 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 Fairlight 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 1 on 1? Why not Fairlight group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 lessons.
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 Fairlight piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Fairlight 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 personally think the best approach to answer this enquiry 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 daily basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to develop or explain new ideas 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 train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. 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 coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate 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 expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
