Piano Teacher Waitara – 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 Waitara traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Waitara? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Waitara piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Waitara 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Waitara piano tutors are experienced in teaching young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to encourage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Waitara 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 Waitara group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 quicker than students learning in group classes.
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 Waitara piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Waitara 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 lessons once a week.
But 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 way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical family and their primary teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually 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 tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get 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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
