South Coogee Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in South Coogee traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to South Coogee? 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer South Coogee piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our South Coogee 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 South Coogee piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 South Coogee 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not South Coogee group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 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 South Coogee piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best South Coogee 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.
Typically 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 consider the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide suggestions on how to improve or teach new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 rehearse is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.
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 goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, 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 kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
