Villawood Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Villawood traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Villawood? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 Villawood piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Villawood 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 Villawood piano tutors 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 Villawood piano teachers 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 Villawood group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Villawood piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Villawood 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 classes 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 think the best approach to answer 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 olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical background and their first teachers were often 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 must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to improve or explain new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial 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 rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect 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 teacher 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 grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. 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 teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific 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 goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, 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 child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of four 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
