Piano Teacher Werrington – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Werrington traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Werrington? 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Werrington piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Werrington 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 Werrington 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 Werrington 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 Werrington group  piano lessons?

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 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 Werrington piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Werrington 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 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 myself think the best approach to answer this question 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 daily basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first 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 day-to-day lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions 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 continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

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 rehearse is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom 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 tutors can correct bad habits and improper pose. 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 maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.

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 ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best 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 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 indeed seriously. 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 principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

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 full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
