Piano Teacher Mosman – 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 Mosman traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Mosman? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Mosman piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Mosman 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 Mosman 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 Mosman 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 Mosman group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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!
What are your Mosman piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Mosman 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 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 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary teachers 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 Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the new 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 practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find 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 rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. 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 train is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches 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 teacher 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 correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain 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 goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You get 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 whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
