Piano Teacher Chatswood – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Chatswood traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Chatswood? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Chatswood piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Chatswood 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 Chatswood piano teachers 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Chatswood 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 Chatswood group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 lessons.
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 Chatswood piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Chatswood 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 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 myself believe the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. 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 might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking 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 segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that style 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 tutor 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 teachers can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop 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 precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture 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 want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole 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!
