Gilead Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Gilead traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Gilead? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Gilead piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Gilead 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 Gilead piano teachers 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 Gilead 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Gilead group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 individual 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 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 Gilead piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Gilead 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 myself believe the best way 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 key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest teachers were frequently 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now 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 requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult 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 allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and create 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 want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
