Piano Teacher Maroubra – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Maroubra traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Maroubra? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 Maroubra piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Maroubra 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 Maroubra 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Maroubra 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 Maroubra 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 1 on 1 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 Maroubra piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Maroubra 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.
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 approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to develop or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 rehearse is to take out all distractions 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 unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty 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 adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often 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 easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
