Phillip Bay Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Phillip Bay traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Phillip Bay? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Phillip Bay piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Phillip Bay 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 Phillip Bay 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Phillip Bay 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 1 on 1? Why not Phillip Bay group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 private 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 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 Phillip Bay piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Phillip Bay 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.
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 myself believe the best approach 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to get better or explain new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer 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 rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact 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 day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, however 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 seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
