Cammeray Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Cammeray traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Cammeray? 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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Cammeray piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cammeray 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 Cammeray piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Cammeray 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 Cammeray group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 1 on 1 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 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:
- 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 classes 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 way to response to this question 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 composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 section slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 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 enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
