Erskineville 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 Erskineville traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Erskineville? 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Erskineville piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Erskineville 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 Erskineville 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Erskineville 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 Erskineville group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 quicker than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Erskineville piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Erskineville 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.
Typically students take piano courses 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 personally believe the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal 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 trainer would then provide recommendations on how to develop or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. 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 rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice 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 start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and precisely is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher 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 coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is completely 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 deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
