Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Kellyville Ridge piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kellyville Ridge 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 Kellyville Ridge piano tutors 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Kellyville Ridge piano tutors 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 Kellyville Ridge group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 quicker 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.

Our piano teachers:

Usually students take piano lessons 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 believe 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary tutors were frequently 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 Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to get better or explain new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear 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 practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping 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 over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively 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 practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer 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 trainers can correct bad habits and improper 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 full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Objectives 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 goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
