Piano Teacher Macquarie Links – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Macquarie Links traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Macquarie Links? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Macquarie Links piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Macquarie Links 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 Macquarie Links piano teachers 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 Macquarie Links 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 Macquarie Links group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group classes.
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 Macquarie Links piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Macquarie Links 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.
Normally students take piano lessons 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 personally consider the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to get better or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train 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.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital 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 practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse 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 could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Tough
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 work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that type of train 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 tutor 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 stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. 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 straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Ambitions 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 profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become 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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
