Piano Teacher Woodbine – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Woodbine traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Woodbine? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Woodbine piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Woodbine 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 Woodbine piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Woodbine 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 Woodbine group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group lessons.
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 Woodbine piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Woodbine 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.
Normally 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 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest teachers were frequently 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 Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to improve or impart new concepts to improve the new 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 train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 practice is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another small section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us know how hard 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 focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely priceless.
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 determining how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, but 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get 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 whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
