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

Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Hunters Hill piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Hunters Hill piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 Hunters Hill piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Hunters Hill 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 Hunters Hill group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 Hunters Hill piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Hunters Hill 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 lessons once a week.
But 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 believe 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 authors and pianists came from a musical family 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced 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 training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor 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 turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty 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 expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact 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 ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
