Piano Teacher Ryde – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Ryde traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Ryde? 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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Ryde piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our 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 Ryde 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 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 Ryde group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Ryde piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best 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.
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 approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary tutors were often 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 Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers 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 tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style of practice 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 trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster 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 train is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
