Piano Teacher Waverton – 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 Waverton traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Waverton? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Waverton piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Waverton 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 Waverton piano teachers 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 Waverton 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 Waverton group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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.
What are your Waverton piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Waverton 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.
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 classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest teachers 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 Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately 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 coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that kind of train 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 tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent 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 simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
