Greystanes Piano Lessons – 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 Greystanes traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Greystanes? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Greystanes piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Greystanes 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 Greystanes 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 Greystanes 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 Greystanes 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 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 quicker 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.

Our piano teachers:

Usually students take piano lessons 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 consider the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first coaches 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 Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the young 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 recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach 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 tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having 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 absolutely invaluable.
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 depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
