Raby Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Raby traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Raby? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 Raby piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Raby 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 Raby piano teachers 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Raby piano trainers 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 Raby 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 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 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 Raby piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Raby 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 think the best approach 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 olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first coaches were often 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 Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to develop or impart new ideas to improve 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 rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers 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 occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will continually be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want 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 kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, 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 happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
