Eastlakes 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 Eastlakes traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Eastlakes? 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Eastlakes piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Eastlakes 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 Eastlakes 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 Eastlakes piano trainers 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 Eastlakes group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 individual 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 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 Eastlakes piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Eastlakes 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 classes 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 enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom 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 tutors can correct bad habits and improper stance. 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 full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, 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 practicing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn 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 seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, 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 captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
