Do your piano teachers come to Grays Point? 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Grays Point piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Grays Point 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 Grays Point 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Grays Point 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 Grays Point group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 1 on 1 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 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 Grays Point piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Grays Point 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 myself believe the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history 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 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 Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to improve or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding 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 trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. 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 train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher 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 coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music principle 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
