Piano Teacher Woollahra – 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 Woollahra traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please touch base 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Woollahra piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Woollahra 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 Woollahra 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Woollahra piano trainers 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 Woollahra group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 individual lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Woollahra piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Woollahra 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 personally believe the best approach to answer this question 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical background and their first trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

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 concepts to improve 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 tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

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 eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor section they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct 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 Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner 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 train is absolutely precious.

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 often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano coach will continually be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study 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 desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
