Windsor Downs 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 Windsor Downs traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.

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 Windsor Downs piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Windsor Downs 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 Windsor Downs piano tutors 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Windsor Downs 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Windsor Downs 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 lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group classes.

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 Windsor Downs piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Windsor Downs 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.

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 think the best approach to answer 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical background and their primary tutors were often 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 Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train 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 could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Challenging

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 work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples quicker 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 rehearse is absolutely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a career

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
