Piano Teacher Menai – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Menai traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Menai? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Menai piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Menai 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 Menai 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 Menai 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 Menai group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 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 Menai piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Menai 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 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 myself believe the best approach to answer this enquiry 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 everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary trainers 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 Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding 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 lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens 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 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 eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start 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 train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how challenging 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent 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 advance many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. 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 make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover 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 correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
