Gordon Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Gordon traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Gordon? 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 homes without a piano.
When do you offer Gordon piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Gordon 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 Gordon piano tutors 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Gordon piano teachers 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 Gordon group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 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 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.

Only the best Gordon 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 courses 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 personally think the best approach to response to this enquiry 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 frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience 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 everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. 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 sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 train is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor section they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should train 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 focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs 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 coaches can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker 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 undeniably precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
