Berala Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Berala traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Berala? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Berala piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Berala 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 Berala piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Berala piano teachers 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 Berala group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 faster than students learning in group lessons.
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 Berala piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Berala 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.
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 consider the best way 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 major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover 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 could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out 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 small section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad 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 fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place 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 at all times the finest.
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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
