Wahroonga Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Wahroonga traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Wahroonga? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Wahroonga piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Wahroonga 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 Wahroonga piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Wahroonga 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 Wahroonga group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 Wahroonga piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Wahroonga 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.
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 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first tutors 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 Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to develop or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding 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 hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important 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 coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. 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 success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and craft 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 study 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 want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
