Mascot Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

Do your piano teachers come to Mascot? And on which days of the week?

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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Mascot piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Mascot piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 Mascot 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Mascot 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Mascot group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 private 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.

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 think the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers were frequently 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give recommendations on how to get better or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come 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 rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us know how difficult 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 be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study 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 want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
