Piano Teacher Gledswood Hills – 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 Gledswood Hills traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Gledswood Hills? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 homes without a piano.
When do you offer Gledswood Hills piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Gledswood Hills 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 Gledswood Hills piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Gledswood Hills 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 Gledswood Hills group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker 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.

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 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 myself 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their first coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or teach 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 following week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial 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 rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 rehearse is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another small section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal 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 trainer will continually be helpful and craft 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 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 child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You get 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 entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
