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

Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer St Clair piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our St Clair 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 St Clair 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 St Clair 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 St Clair group piano classes?
Group piano classes 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.
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.

Our piano teachers:

Normally students take piano lessons 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 personally consider the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach 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 tutors can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably invaluable.
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 deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen 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 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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
