Piano Teacher Parklea – 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 Parklea traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Parklea? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Parklea piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Parklea 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 Parklea piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Parklea 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 Parklea group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 1 on 1 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 Parklea piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Parklea 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.
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 consider the best way to response to 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 frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to get better or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place 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 hard.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers 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 occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress 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 practice is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
