Waterloo Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Waterloo traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Waterloo? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Waterloo piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Waterloo 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 Waterloo 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 Waterloo 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 Waterloo group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 individual lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.
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 Waterloo piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Waterloo 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.
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 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 past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical background and their first tutors 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 Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 segment bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples earlier 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 practice is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared 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 business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. 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 satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
