Piano Teacher North Ryde – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

Do your piano teachers come to North Ryde? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer North Ryde piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our North Ryde 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 North Ryde 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our North Ryde piano trainers 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 1 on 1? Why not North Ryde group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons 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 individual 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 North Ryde piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best North Ryde 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.
Normally 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 personally think the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to improve or teach new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations 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 continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. 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 practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how difficult 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 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. 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 rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
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 frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
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 complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
