Botany Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Botany traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Botany? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Botany piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Botany 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 Botany piano teachers 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Botany 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 Botany group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker 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 Botany piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Botany 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 lessons 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 myself think the best approach to response to this enquiry 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest 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 everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to improve or teach 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 rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work 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 small section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples earlier 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 completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
