Piano Teacher Guildford West – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Guildford West traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Guildford West? 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 Guildford West piano classes?

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 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 Guildford West 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 Guildford West group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 private lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group lessons.

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 Guildford West piano teachers 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 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 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to get better or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.

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 train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy 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 well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs 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 put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano coach will continually be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
