Kogarah Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Kogarah traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Kogarah? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Kogarah piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kogarah 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 Kogarah piano teachers 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 Kogarah piano tutors 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 Kogarah group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 quicker than students learning in group classes.
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 Kogarah piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Kogarah 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 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 history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first teachers were frequently 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 Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to improve or impart new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital 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 train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress 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 rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, 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 best.
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 spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
