Wiley Park Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Wiley Park traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Wiley Park? 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 Wiley Park piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Wiley Park 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 Wiley Park piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Wiley Park 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 Wiley Park group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 Wiley Park piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Wiley Park 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 consider the best approach to response to this question 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 often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background 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 Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to develop or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher 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 practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 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 trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, however 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 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 delight out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
