Epping Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Epping traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Epping? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Epping piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Epping 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 Epping 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Epping 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 Epping group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 quicker 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 Epping piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Epping 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.
But 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 personally think the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide suggestions on how to develop or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. 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 practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should practice 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 fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type 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 trainer 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 trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent 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 straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
