Dharruk Piano Lessons – 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 Dharruk traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Dharruk? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Dharruk piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dharruk 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 Dharruk 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Dharruk 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 Dharruk group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 faster than students learning in group classes.
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 Dharruk 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 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 consider the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background 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 probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover 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 practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire 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 want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept 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 seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
