Piano Teacher Kearns – 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 Kearns traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Kearns? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Kearns piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kearns 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 Kearns piano teachers 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 Kearns 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Kearns 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Kearns piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Kearns 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.
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 myself believe the best approach to response to this question 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to develop 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 practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate 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 section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another small section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens 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 tutors can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
