Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Penrith piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Penrith 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 five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Penrith piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Penrith 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 Penrith group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster 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!

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.
Usually students take piano courses once a week.
But 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 question 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first trainers 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to improve or impart new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 practice is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind 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 coach 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 teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time 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 wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson 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.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
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 spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
