Piano Teacher Toongabbie – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Toongabbie traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please call 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Toongabbie piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Toongabbie 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 Toongabbie piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Toongabbie piano trainers 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 Toongabbie group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes 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 1 on 1 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 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 Toongabbie piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Toongabbie 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 lessons once a week.

On the other hand 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 answer this question 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 composers and pianists came from a musical family 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 probably gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide suggestions on how to improve or teach new concepts to improve 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 following 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 lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another small segment they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to assist us understand how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers 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 teacher is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time 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 able to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
