Galston 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 Galston traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Galston? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Galston piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Galston 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 Galston piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Galston 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 Galston group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.
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 Galston piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Galston 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 personally consider the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
