Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Turrella piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Turrella piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 Turrella 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 Turrella 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Turrella 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 private 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 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 Turrella piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Turrella 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.
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 think the best way to response to this enquiry 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 daily basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical experience 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 possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to develop or teach 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 train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 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 minor section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor section they are not happy with and do it once 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 happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the trainer 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 coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money 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 ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson 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.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
