Pennant Hills Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Pennant Hills traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Pennant Hills? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Pennant Hills piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Pennant Hills 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 Pennant Hills 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 Pennant Hills piano tutors 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 Pennant Hills group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano tutoring 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.

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 myself believe the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their first tutors 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 Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. 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 train is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and correctly is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers 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 focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue 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 accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
