Kangaroo Point Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Kangaroo Point traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Kangaroo Point? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 Kangaroo Point piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kangaroo Point 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 Kangaroo Point 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 Kangaroo Point piano teachers 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 Kangaroo Point group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 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 Kangaroo Point piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Kangaroo Point 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 consider the best way to response to 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 authors and pianists came from a musical family and their first teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to improve or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher 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 practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely precious.
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 deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
