Piano Teacher Prairiewood – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Prairiewood traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Prairiewood? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 Prairiewood piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Prairiewood 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 Prairiewood piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Prairiewood 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 Prairiewood group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Prairiewood piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Prairiewood 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 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 personally consider the best way to response to this enquiry 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first tutors 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 Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to get better or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice 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 assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. 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 practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove 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 unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer 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 incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually 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 want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right 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, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept 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 sincerely, 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 joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
