Hoxton Park Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Hoxton Park traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Hoxton Park? 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.

When do you offer Hoxton Park piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Hoxton 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 five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.

Our Hoxton Park piano teachers are experienced in teaching young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to encourage your child and give them best start in their piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Hoxton 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 Hoxton Park group  piano lessons?

Group piano lessons 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 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 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 Hoxton Park piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Hoxton Park 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.

Usually students take piano classes once a week.

On the other hand 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 enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to develop or teach new ideas to improve the new 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 train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

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 train is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small section they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular 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, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study 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 sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
