Mortdale 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 Mortdale traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Mortdale? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Mortdale piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Mortdale 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 Mortdale piano teachers are experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to encourage your child and give them best start in their piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Mortdale 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 1 on 1? Why not Mortdale group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 Mortdale piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Mortdale 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 lessons 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 personally believe the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their primary teachers 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to improve or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet 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 practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your child 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 at all times the best.
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 spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
