Piano Teacher Granville – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Granville traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Granville? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Granville piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Granville 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 Granville piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Granville 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 Granville 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Granville piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Granville 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 myself think the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first trainers 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 coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor 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 tutors can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.
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 deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will continually be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, 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 kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra 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 honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
