Piano Teacher Leichhardt – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Leichhardt traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Leichhardt? 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Leichhardt piano lessons?

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

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Leichhardt 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 1 on 1? Why not Leichhardt group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.

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 Leichhardt piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Leichhardt 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.

However 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 way to response to 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first 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 daily lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

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

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may 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 train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. 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 exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano tutor will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. 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 theory 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 seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
