Piano Teacher Sydney – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Sydney traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Sydney? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Sydney piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Sydney 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 Sydney 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 Sydney 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 1 on 1? Why not Sydney group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Sydney piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Sydney 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.
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 think 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary teachers were frequently 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 Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 train is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
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 deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become 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 emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
