Hurlstone Park Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Hurlstone Park traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Hurlstone Park? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Hurlstone Park piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Hurlstone Park 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 Hurlstone Park 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 Hurlstone Park piano teachers 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 Hurlstone Park group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 one on one 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.
What are your Hurlstone Park piano teachers qualifications?

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.
Normally students take piano courses 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 courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the young 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 train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking 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 sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how challenging 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs 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 trainers can rectify 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 Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However 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 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become 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 whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
