Riverview 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 Riverview traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Riverview? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Riverview piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Riverview 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Riverview 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Riverview 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 Riverview group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano classes 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 faster than students learning in group lessons.
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 Riverview piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Riverview 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 lessons once a week.
However 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 consider 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 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 coaches 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 coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain 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 succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe 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 lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
