Cowan Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Cowan traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Cowan? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Cowan piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cowan 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 Cowan piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Cowan 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 Cowan group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 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 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 Cowan piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Cowan 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 classes 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 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 olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest coaches were frequently 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or teach 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 rehearse 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 assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually 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 teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting 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 sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach 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 teachers can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
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 goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, 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 child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however 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 become 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 spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
