Piano Teacher Harrington Park – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

Do your piano teachers come to Harrington Park? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 Harrington Park piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Harrington 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 Harrington Park 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Harrington 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Harrington Park group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 1 on 1 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 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.
What are your Harrington Park piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Harrington 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.
Normally students take piano courses 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 myself consider the best way to answer this question 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience 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 possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to develop or impart new concepts to develop the new 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 train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate 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 coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that practice is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
