Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Concord West piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Concord West 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 Concord West 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 Concord West 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 1 on 1? Why not Concord West 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 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 Concord West piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Concord West 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.
Typically 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 consider the best approach to response to this question 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 often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to develop or explain new ideas 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 succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 rehearse is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style of rehearse 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 tutor 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 improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
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 determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get 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 boundless. Don’t miss out!
