Piano Teacher Huntleys Point – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Huntleys Point? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Huntleys Point piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Huntleys Point 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 Huntleys Point 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Huntleys Point 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 Huntleys Point 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 1 on 1 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 Huntleys Point piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Huntleys Point 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 courses 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 personally believe the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest coaches were often 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 teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

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 rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts 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 segment gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor section they are not comfortable with and do it again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that kind 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 teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough 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 afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples quicker 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 rehearse is completely precious.

Realistically

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

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a business

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

A piano teacher will always be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture 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.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
