Piano Teacher Panania – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Panania traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please call 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 Panania piano lessons?

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

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Panania 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 Panania group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 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 Panania piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Panania 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 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 myself think the best approach 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 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 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 everyday lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to improve or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

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 eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.

Realistically

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

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a profession

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, however 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 always 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 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.
