Piano Teacher Horsley Park – 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 Horsley Park traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Horsley Park? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Horsley Park piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Horsley Park 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 Horsley Park 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Horsley Park 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Horsley Park group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 1 on 1 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 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 Horsley Park piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Horsley Park 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 way to answer 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest 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 Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact 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 tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 train is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect 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 tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking 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 practice is completely 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 determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can discover 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 want to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, but 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 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 satisfaction 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 mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
