Piano Teacher Leets Vale – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

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

Please touch base 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Leets Vale piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Leets Vale 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 Leets Vale piano tutors 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Leets Vale 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 Leets Vale group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 Leets Vale piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Leets Vale 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 personally believe the best way 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 often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest 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 Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to improve or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse 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.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach 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 rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments 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 minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor segment they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer 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 tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, 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 rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a career

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

A piano teacher will continually be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music theory 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 satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
