Glenorie Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Glenorie traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Glenorie? 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Glenorie piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Glenorie 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 Glenorie 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Glenorie 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 1 on 1? Why not Glenorie group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 private 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 Glenorie piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Glenorie 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 lessons 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 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 olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to improve or teach new concepts 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 teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard 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 develop 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 precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
