Piano Teacher Phillip Bay – 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 Phillip Bay traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Phillip Bay? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 Phillip Bay piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Phillip Bay 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 Phillip Bay piano teachers 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 Phillip Bay 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 Phillip Bay group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Phillip Bay piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Phillip Bay 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 lessons 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 consider 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice 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 might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us understand how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer 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 teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Goals 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 job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace 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 correctly or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
