Piano Teacher Kingsford – 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 Kingsford traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please enquire 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Kingsford piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kingsford 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 Kingsford 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 Kingsford 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 1 on 1? Why not Kingsford group  piano lessons?

Group piano lessons 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 one on one 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 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 Kingsford piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Kingsford 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 classes 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 consider the best approach to response to this question 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 daily basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to get better or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the result. 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 practice 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 unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to help us understand 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 older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably invaluable.

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 frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular 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, obviously lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will always be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
