Guildford West Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

Do your piano teachers come to Guildford West? And on which days of the week?

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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Guildford West piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Guildford West 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 Guildford West 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Guildford West 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 Guildford West group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Guildford West piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Guildford West 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 classes 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 think the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach new concepts 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 rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come 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 unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive 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 anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance 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 undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, however 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 finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
