Seven Hills 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 Seven Hills traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Seven Hills? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Seven Hills piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Seven Hills 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 Seven Hills piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Seven Hills 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Seven Hills 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster 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 Seven Hills piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Seven Hills 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.
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 think the best way 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 everyday basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their first teachers were often 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 Training 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 coach would then give ideas on how to improve or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come 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 happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher 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 tutors can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop 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 practice is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment 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 mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
