Piano Teacher North Rocks – 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 North Rocks traffic to get to your piano lessons.

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

Please enquire 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer North Rocks piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our North Rocks 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 North Rocks 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our North Rocks 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 North Rocks group  piano lessons?

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 North Rocks piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best North Rocks 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 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 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 courses.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary 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 daily lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove 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 section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse 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 challenging time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective objectives.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a career

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
