Huntleys Cove Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Huntleys Cove traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Huntleys Cove? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Huntleys Cove piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Huntleys Cove 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 Huntleys Cove piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Huntleys Cove 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Huntleys Cove group piano lessons?
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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster 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 Huntleys Cove piano tutors 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.
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 think the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice 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 recommendations on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how challenging that is. How long should rehearse 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom 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 rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. 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. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Ambitions 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 job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest 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 correctly or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
