Piano Teacher Redfern – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

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

Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Redfern piano lessons?

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

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group lessons.

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 Redfern piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Redfern 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 way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to improve or explain new ideas to develop the young 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 rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work 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 section bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting 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 adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably precious.

Realistically

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

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano trainer will continually be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating 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.
