Piano Teacher Lalor Park – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Lalor Park traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Lalor Park? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Lalor Park piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Lalor Park 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 Lalor Park piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Lalor Park 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 Lalor Park group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One piano tutoring 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 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 Lalor Park piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Lalor Park 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.
Usually students take piano classes 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 think the best approach to answer this question 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations 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 continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach 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 rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice 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 be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. 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 maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance 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 rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem 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 right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but 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 always the finest.
You get 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 complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
