Piano Teacher Westleigh – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Westleigh? 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Westleigh piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Westleigh 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 Westleigh piano teachers are experienced in teaching young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Westleigh 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 Westleigh group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One piano classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.

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 Westleigh piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Westleigh 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.

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 think the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary 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 everyday lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or explain new ideas to improve the new 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 coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach 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 rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. 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 full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.

Realistically

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

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a profession

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano tutor will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial 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.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
