Allawah Piano Lessons – 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 Allawah traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Allawah? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Allawah piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Allawah 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 Allawah 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Allawah 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 Allawah 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 private 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 Allawah piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Allawah 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 courses 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 consider the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary tutors were frequently 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 ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to develop or impart 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 practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings 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 discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer 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 practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
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 sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however 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 always the top.
You get 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 entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
