Piano Teacher Orchard Hills – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Orchard Hills traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Orchard Hills? 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Orchard Hills piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Orchard Hills 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 Orchard Hills piano tutors 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 Orchard Hills 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 Orchard Hills group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Orchard Hills piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Orchard Hills 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 think the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eliminate all diversions 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 minor segment gradually and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small section they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging 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 be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier 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 absolutely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.

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 entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
