Piano Teacher Hassall Grove – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Hassall Grove traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to Hassall Grove? And on which days of the week?

Please touch base 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Hassall Grove piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Hassall Grove 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 Hassall Grove piano tutors 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Hassall Grove 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 Hassall Grove group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Hassall Grove piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Hassall Grove 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 classes 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 personally consider the best approach 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 frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience 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 likely gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve the new 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 rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now 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 condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor section they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that style 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 coach is sitting there. You have the teacher 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 grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

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

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a career

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

A piano teacher will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson 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.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.

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 complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
