Kingsford 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 Kingsford traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Kingsford? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Kingsford piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kingsford 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 Kingsford 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 Kingsford 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 Kingsford group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 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 Kingsford piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Kingsford 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 think the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide ideas on how to get better or impart 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 rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely 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 practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise 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 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. 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 maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
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 determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music principle 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
