Lakemba 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 Lakemba traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Lakemba? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Lakemba piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Lakemba 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 Lakemba 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 Lakemba 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Lakemba group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 1 on 1 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 Lakemba piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Lakemba 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 courses 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 personally believe the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest teachers were frequently 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to improve or explain new ideas 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 rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. 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 trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. 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 practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus 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 expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher 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 teachers can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance 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 have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about just 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 lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
