Do your piano teachers come to South Turramurra? And on which days of the week?

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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer South Turramurra piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our South Turramurra 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 Turramurra piano tutors 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 South Turramurra 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 South Turramurra group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 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.

Our piano teachers:

Usually students take piano classes 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 personally believe the best way to answer this question 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 frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their first tutors were often 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to develop or impart new ideas 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 succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. 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 sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Difficult
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 work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, 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 rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get 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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
