Piano Teacher Seven Hills – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Seven Hills traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Seven Hills? 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Seven Hills piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Seven Hills 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 Seven Hills piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Seven Hills 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Seven Hills group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.
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 Seven Hills piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Seven Hills 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.
However 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 approach 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary 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 everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to improve or impart 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 practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice 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 hard.
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 train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now 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 requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors 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 occurs when the tutor 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 rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. 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 effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford 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 rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an 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 correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
