Piano Teacher Castlereagh – 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 Castlereagh traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Castlereagh? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Castlereagh piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Castlereagh 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 Castlereagh 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 Castlereagh 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 1 on 1? Why not Castlereagh group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 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 Castlereagh piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Castlereagh 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.
On the other hand 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 way to answer this question 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical background and their first tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking 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 sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers 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 occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific 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 ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace 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 correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
