Piano Teacher Holsworthy – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Holsworthy traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Holsworthy? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 homes without a piano.
When do you offer Holsworthy piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Holsworthy 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 Holsworthy piano teachers 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 Holsworthy 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 Holsworthy group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster 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 Holsworthy piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Holsworthy 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 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 approach to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical background 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 daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide suggestions on how to get better or explain new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train 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 tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and correctly 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 point is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom 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 teachers can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
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 pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
