Clovelly Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Clovelly traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Clovelly? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Clovelly piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Clovelly 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 Clovelly 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 Clovelly piano tutors 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 Clovelly group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 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 Clovelly piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Clovelly 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.
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 consider the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest trainers were often 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to get better or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that type of train 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. 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 principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
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 complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
