Kingswood Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Kingswood traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Kingswood? 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Kingswood piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kingswood 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 Kingswood 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 Kingswood 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 Kingswood group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano tutoring ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in individual 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 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 Kingswood piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Kingswood 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.
Usually students take piano lessons 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 personally think the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key composers 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 everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or teach new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find 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 rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 train is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments 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 slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of rehearse 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 tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. 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 frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
