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 Beacon Hill traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Beacon Hill? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Beacon Hill piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Beacon Hill 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 Beacon Hill 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 Beacon Hill 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 Beacon Hill 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 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 quicker 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 Beacon Hill piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Beacon Hill 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.
Typically 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 myself consider the best approach to response to 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 past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest tutors were often 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 Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 small section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us understand how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen 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 train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher 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 trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner 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 rehearse is absolutely invaluable.
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 deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
