Wollstonecraft Piano Lessons – 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 Wollstonecraft traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Wollstonecraft? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Wollstonecraft piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Wollstonecraft 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 Wollstonecraft piano tutors 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Wollstonecraft 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 Wollstonecraft group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 classes.
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 Wollstonecraft piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Wollstonecraft 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.
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 approach 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 history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to improve or impart new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well 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 train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor 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 put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often 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 simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
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 often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture 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 want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
