Putney Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Putney traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Putney? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Putney piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Putney 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 Putney 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 Putney 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 Putney group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Putney piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Putney 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 classes 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 response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford 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. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
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 entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
