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

Do your piano teachers come to Hornsby Heights? 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 Hornsby Heights piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Hornsby Heights 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 Hornsby Heights piano tutors 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Hornsby Heights 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 Hornsby Heights 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 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 Hornsby Heights piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Hornsby Heights 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.
Typically students take piano courses 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 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary teachers 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 tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to improve or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us understand how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased 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 well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that kind 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 teacher 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 correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a lesson 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 desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
