Piano Teacher Sutherland – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Sutherland traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Sutherland? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Sutherland piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Sutherland 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 Sutherland piano tutors 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Sutherland 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Sutherland group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Sutherland piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Sutherland 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.
But 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 the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work 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 gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach 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 tutors can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover 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 right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 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 pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
