Piano Teacher Thornleigh – 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 Thornleigh traffic to get to your piano lessons.

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

Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Thornleigh piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Thornleigh 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 Thornleigh 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Thornleigh 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 Thornleigh 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 lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in individual lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Thornleigh piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Thornleigh 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.

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 myself consider the best way 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 daily basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher 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 rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Hard

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

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how difficult that is. How long should train 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 fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that kind 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 coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect 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 effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano tutor will always be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place 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 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

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 entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising 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.
