St Peters Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in St Peters traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to St Peters? 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer St Peters piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our St Peters 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 St Peters 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 St Peters 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 St Peters group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 1 on 1 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 start 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 St Peters piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best St Peters 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 think the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary 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 daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to improve or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice 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 assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 rehearse 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 presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, 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 rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
