Piano Teacher Scotland Island – 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 Scotland Island traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please call 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 perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Scotland Island piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Scotland Island 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 Scotland Island piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Scotland Island piano tutors 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 Scotland Island group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 private 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 Scotland Island piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Scotland Island 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.

Normally students take piano courses once a week.

But 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 approach to response to 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 past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest coaches were often 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 Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or teach new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer 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 happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor section they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how difficult 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 concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher 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 trainers can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano teacher will continually be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire 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!
