Mortlake 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 Mortlake traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Mortlake? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 Mortlake piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Mortlake 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 Mortlake piano tutors 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 Mortlake 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 Mortlake group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 individual 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.

Only the best Mortlake 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.
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 consider 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop 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 practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear 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 sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
