Dean Park Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Dean Park traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Dean Park? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 Dean Park piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dean Park 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 Dean Park piano tutors 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 Dean Park 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 Dean Park 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 lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one 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 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 Dean Park piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Dean Park 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.
Normally 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 believe the best approach to answer this enquiry 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience 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 likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new ideas to develop the young 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 trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to help us know how tough 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 well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having 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 train is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. 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. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective 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 job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
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 complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
