FAQS

  • WHAT DAYS ARE YOU OPEN?
    The office is open Monday-Friday 9am-3pm, however we operate classes every day of the week
  • HOW DO I ENROL?
    The easiest way is to call into the school in person or by phone and talk through the needs of your child with our administrator or school director. They will then be able to either slot you into an existing group class or private lesson or put you onto the appropriate waitlist. We advise that you enrol online or in the office so we have all your information.
  • IS THERE A REGISTRATION FEE?
    No, but we ask parents to pay upfront for a Term. For group classes we offer a free trial lesson and then should you wish to proceed the first lesson becomes part of the term’s fees.
  • IS THERE A WAITING LIST
    For private lessons we normally have slots available. Some group classes are full and others have space but we cannot guarantee to offer a suitable class on your preferred day. We always have new classes being formed and establish a wait list until a class becomes viable.
  • DO I NEED TO HAVE A PIANO AT HOME?
    Jitterbugs and Beeboppers do not require pianos, however all our other programs require that you have a digital or acoustic piano at home for them to practise on.
  • WHERE CAN I HIRE A DIGITAL PIANO?
    We highly recommend going to Pianoworld Australia in Chatswood. You will get a great price through your connection to the school and they offer a 6 month rental agreement on all pianos both digital and acoustic. 390 Eastern Valley Way Chatswood, NSW 2067 Phone:02 8999 3639
  • HOW LONG IS EACH CLASS?
    The Jitterbugs group classes for two year olds are 30 minutes. The Beebopper classes for three year olds and the Pianorama Junior, Primary and Intermediate courses for 4 – 7 year olds are 45 minutes. The Pianorama Extension course is 60 minutes. Private lessons are usually 30 minutes but for higher grades and older children can be either 45 or 60 minutes.
  • HOW MANY STUDENTS IN A CLASS?
    Group classes are capped at 10 students each. We generally do not start new classes with less than 5 or 6 students to ensure the best group dynamics. Our average group size is around 8. Private lessons are one-to-one.
  • AS A PARENT HOW MUCH AM I INVOLVED?
    Parents/Carers have to attend Beeboppers and it is preferable to attend the 4 year old junior classes. It is useful for parents to assist with practise and motivation at home.
  • DO YOU ACKNOWLEDGE PREVIOUS MUSIC TUITION?
    Yes we do which is why we ask about prior experience in our initial conversation with parents. We try to then place the child in the best class that suits their age and previous level of experience.
  • WHAT DO THE MATERIALS COST?
    The cost of materials (books and CDs) varies by program but is generally in the range of $35 - $42. These materials generally last around 6 months before the children progress to the next level.
  • ARE THERE DISCOUNTS FOR REGISTERING MORE THAN ONE CHILD?
    We offer a 20% discount for a third and subsequent child.
