Piano Teacher Killara – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Killara traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Killara? 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 Killara piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Killara 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 Killara 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 Killara piano trainers 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 Killara group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one 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.

Our piano teachers:

Usually 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 way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train 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 practice is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another small section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased 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 fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress 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 practicing with the student. But that practice is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, 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 four 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
