Piano Teacher Northwood – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Northwood traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Northwood? 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Northwood piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Northwood 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 Northwood piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Northwood 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 1 on 1? Why not Northwood group piano classes?
Group piano classes 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 Northwood piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Northwood 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.
Usually students take piano classes 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 think the best approach to answer 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 everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers were frequently 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to develop 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 trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place 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 hard.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating 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 again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that type 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 tutor 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 trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, 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 kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, but 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 always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
