Gymea 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 Gymea traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Gymea? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Gymea piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Gymea 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 Gymea piano teachers 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 Gymea 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 Gymea group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano lessons 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 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 Gymea piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Gymea 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.
On the other hand 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 enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop 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 trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how hard 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 focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that type of train 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 tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- 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 really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want 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 really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
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 full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
