Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Macquarie Fields piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Macquarie Fields piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 Macquarie Fields 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Macquarie Fields 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 Macquarie Fields 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 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 faster than students learning in group lessons.
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.

Our piano teachers:

Normally 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 think the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide suggestions on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse 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 be attentive effectively for 15 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 train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice 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 difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue 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 accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
