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

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 Alfords Point piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Alfords 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 Alfords Point 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Alfords Point 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 Alfords Point group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 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 Alfords Point piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Alfords 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.
Usually students take piano courses 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 way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training 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 trainer would then provide ideas on how to develop or impart new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following 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 trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse 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 outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor 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 correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of 4 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 seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
