Piano Teacher Monterey – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Monterey traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Monterey? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Monterey piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Monterey 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 Monterey 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 Monterey 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Monterey group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano lessons 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 Monterey piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Monterey 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.
On the other hand 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 classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or explain new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 rehearse is to eradicate all diversions 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 inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that kind 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 tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. 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 tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
