Peakhurst Heights Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Peakhurst Heights traffic to get to your piano lessons.

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

Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.

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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Peakhurst Heights piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Peakhurst Heights 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 Peakhurst Heights piano tutors 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Peakhurst Heights 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 Peakhurst Heights group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons 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 1 on 1 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 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 Peakhurst Heights piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Peakhurst Heights 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 way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical background 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student practiced 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 training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train 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 might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Tough

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 diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different small section they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to assist us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher 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 tough time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common ambitions.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific 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, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, 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 become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
