Darkes Forest 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 Darkes Forest traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Darkes Forest? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Darkes Forest piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Darkes Forest 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 Darkes Forest 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 Darkes Forest 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 Darkes Forest 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group classes.
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 Darkes Forest piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Darkes Forest 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 lessons 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 think 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 history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop 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 carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another small section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased 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 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. 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 concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
