Parklea Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Parklea traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Parklea? 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 Parklea piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Parklea 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 Parklea 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Parklea 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 Parklea group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 lessons.
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 Parklea piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Parklea 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 myself believe the best way 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to improve or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice 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 assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting 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 segments 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 small section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another minor section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens 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 coaches can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Often 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 earlier 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 precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover 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 accurately or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
