Piano Teacher Miranda – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

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

Please call 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 perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Miranda piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Miranda 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.

Our Miranda 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Miranda 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 Miranda group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 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 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 Miranda piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Miranda 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.

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 approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest 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 day-to-day lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give 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 recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased 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 distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano tutor will always be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn 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 desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three 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 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 pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
