Forestville Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Forestville traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Forestville? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Forestville piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Forestville 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 Forestville piano tutors 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 Forestville 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 Forestville 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 Forestville piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Forestville 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.
On the other hand 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 response to this enquiry 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 writers 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to develop or explain new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice 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 could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting 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 coaches can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely 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 indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- 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 daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire 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 want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get 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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
