Piano Teacher Sackville North – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

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

Please call 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Sackville North piano classes?

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

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in 1 on 1 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 Sackville North piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Sackville North 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 answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest 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 Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately 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 happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Difficult

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 work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small section they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse 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 well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a business

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes 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.
