Piano Teacher Auburn – 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 Auburn traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Auburn? 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 Auburn piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Auburn 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 five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Auburn 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Auburn 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 Auburn group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano lessons 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 quicker 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 Auburn piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Auburn 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 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 consider the best approach 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 the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main writers 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 likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to get better or explain new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. 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 rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that style 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 trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid 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 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get 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 entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
