Waverton Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Waverton traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Waverton? And on which days of the week?

Please call 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Waverton piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Waverton 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 Waverton piano teachers 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Waverton 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 Waverton group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 1 on 1 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 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 Waverton piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Waverton 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.

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 response to this enquiry 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 everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to improve or impart new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. 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 train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different minor section they are not comfortable with and do it again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen 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 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that style of train 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 trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano trainer will at all times 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 find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, 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 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
