Lidcombe 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 Lidcombe traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Lidcombe? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Lidcombe piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Lidcombe 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 Lidcombe piano tutors 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Lidcombe 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 Lidcombe 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Lidcombe piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Lidcombe 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.
Normally students take piano courses once a week.
On the other hand 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 consider the best approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve 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 tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher 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 train, but sadly 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 rehearse is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder 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 teachers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
