Wedderburn Piano Lessons – 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 Wedderburn traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Wedderburn? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Wedderburn piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Wedderburn 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 Wedderburn 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Wedderburn 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 1 on 1? Why not Wedderburn group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 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 Wedderburn piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Wedderburn 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.
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 consider the best way to response to 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 everyday basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop 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 following week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place 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 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 distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more minor section they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker 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 rehearse is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
