Piano Teacher Whale Beach – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Whale Beach traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Whale Beach? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Whale Beach piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Whale Beach 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 Whale Beach piano tutors 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 Whale Beach 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 Whale Beach 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 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 Whale Beach piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Whale Beach 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 personally believe the best approach to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first teachers were often 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 Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all diversions 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 presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should practice 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 focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. 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 maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster 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 invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, however 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 at all times the top.
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 spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
