Piano Teacher Newington – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Newington traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Newington? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Newington piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Newington 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 Newington piano teachers are experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Newington 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 Newington group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 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 Newington piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Newington 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 courses 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 way to response to 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first trainers were often 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 Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us understand how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
