Piano Teacher Picnic Point – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

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

Please enquire 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 Picnic Point piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Picnic Point 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 Picnic Point 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 Picnic Point 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 Picnic Point group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 Picnic Point piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Picnic Point 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 courses 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 way to answer 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first teachers 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 must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 precisely is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher 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 coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford 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 goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

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 finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. 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.
