Piano Teacher Gladesville – 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 Gladesville traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Gladesville? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 Gladesville piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Gladesville 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 Gladesville 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 Gladesville 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 1 on 1? Why not Gladesville group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one 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 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 Gladesville piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Gladesville 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.
Typically 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 consider 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical background 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 possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to develop or explain new concepts 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 practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place 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 Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train 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 adult would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific 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, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of four 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 honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
