Middle Cove Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Middle Cove traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Middle Cove? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 Middle Cove piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Middle Cove 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 Middle Cove 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Middle Cove 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 1 on 1? Why not Middle Cove group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one 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 Middle Cove piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Middle Cove 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.
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 way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts 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 minor section bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen 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 fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach 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 coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. 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 maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
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 determining how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
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 at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, 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 arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
