Woodcroft Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Woodcroft traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Woodcroft? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 Woodcroft piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Woodcroft 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 Woodcroft 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 Woodcroft 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 Woodcroft group piano classes?
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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Woodcroft piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Woodcroft 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.
Typically 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 way 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions 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 rehearse in the following 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 crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 diversions 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 piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and correctly is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen 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 rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach 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 coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full 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 coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Objectives 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, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover 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 desire to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction 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 immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
