Piano Teacher Watsons Bay – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Watsons Bay traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Watsons Bay? And on which days of the week?

Please enquire 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 great for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

When do you offer Watsons Bay piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Watsons Bay 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 Watsons Bay piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Watsons Bay 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 Watsons Bay group  piano classes?

Group piano classes 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 1 on 1 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 Watsons Bay piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Watsons Bay 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.

Usually students take piano courses 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 consider the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training 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 recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another small section they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens 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 teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective 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 profession

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

A piano coach will always be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you desire 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 another hour of music theory 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
