Glenfield 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 Glenfield traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Glenfield? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Glenfield piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Glenfield 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 Glenfield piano tutors are experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to encourage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Glenfield 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 Glenfield 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 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 Glenfield piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Glenfield 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 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 believe the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop the new 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 practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking 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 rehearse is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared ambitions.
Objectives 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, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become 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 spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
