Do your piano teachers come to Claremont Meadows? 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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Claremont Meadows piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Claremont Meadows piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 Claremont Meadows 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Claremont Meadows 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 Claremont Meadows group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano classes 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 faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Claremont Meadows piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Claremont Meadows 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 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 olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to improve or explain new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor 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 turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might 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 practice is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us understand how challenging that is. How long should practice 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 fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace 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 accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
