Kyle Bay Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

Do your piano teachers come to Kyle Bay? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Kyle Bay piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kyle Bay 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 Kyle Bay piano tutors 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 Kyle Bay 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 Kyle Bay group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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:

Typically 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 personally think the best way 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 frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their first teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or explain new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice 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 suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. 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 practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. 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 practice is to eradicate all distractions 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 small section slowly and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up 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 develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want 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 want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become 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 whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
