Collaroy Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Collaroy traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Collaroy? 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Collaroy piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Collaroy 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 Collaroy 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 Collaroy 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 Collaroy group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Collaroy piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Collaroy 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 believe the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve 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 following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. 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? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older 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 tutors expect 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 coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen 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 always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
