Piano Teacher Prestons – 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 Prestons traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Prestons? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Prestons piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Prestons 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 Prestons 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Prestons 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 Prestons group  piano lessons?

Group piano lessons 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 individual 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 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 Prestons piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Prestons 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 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 personally believe 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 main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Adequate

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

Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately 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 coach do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the result. 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 rehearse 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 beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor section they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers expect that type 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 teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is completely invaluable.

Realistically

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!

A piano teacher will always be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

You become 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 emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising 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.
