Piano Teacher Heckenberg – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

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

Please enquire 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Heckenberg piano classes?

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

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Heckenberg 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 Heckenberg 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 tutoring 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 quicker than students learning in group classes.

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 Heckenberg piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Heckenberg 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 believe 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers 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 Practice 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 teacher would then give recommendations on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer 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 rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Tough

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 distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us realise how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.

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 profession

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
