Asquith Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Asquith traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Asquith? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Asquith piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Asquith 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 Asquith 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Asquith 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 Asquith 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 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 lessons.
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.

Only the best Asquith 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

Normally students take piano classes 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 response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
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 upbringing and their first coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or explain 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 rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer 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 rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 train is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us understand how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that kind 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 teacher 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 coaches can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing 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 teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared ambitions.
Objectives 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, obviously lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen 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 always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
