Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

Do your piano teachers come to Kurraba Point? And on which days of the week?

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 Kurraba Point piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kurraba Point 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 Kurraba Point piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Kurraba Point piano teachers 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 Kurraba Point group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 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 Kurraba Point piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Kurraba Point 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.
Normally students take piano lessons 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 myself believe the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas 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 following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far 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 requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor section they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us understand how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 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 train 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 coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. 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 maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get 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 entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
