Piano Teacher Tennyson Point – 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 Tennyson Point traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Tennyson Point? 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Tennyson Point piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Tennyson Point 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 Tennyson Point piano tutors 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Tennyson Point 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 Tennyson Point 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 lessons 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 quicker 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 Tennyson Point piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Tennyson Point 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 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 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest trainers were frequently 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 Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train 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 rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could 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 take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more minor section they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased 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 fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor 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 rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. 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 often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.

Realistically

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

Objectives 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 career

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. 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 at all times the best.

You become 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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
