Our South Wentworthville piano teachers 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 South Wentworthville group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano tutoring 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 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.

Our piano teachers:

- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Normally students take piano lessons 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 believe the best way 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give recommendations on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may 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 practice is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments 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 small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover 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 right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
