Piano Teacher Penrith – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Penrith traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Penrith? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Penrith piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Penrith 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 Penrith 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Penrith 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Penrith group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano classes 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 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 Penrith piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Penrith 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 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 personally believe the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop or impart new concepts to develop 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 tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad 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 unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that kind 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 teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra 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 delight out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
