In Home Music Lesson Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some answers to frequently asked questions. If you have any unanswered concerns, feel free to contact us through our inquiry form HERE.

Q: What instruments do you teach?
A: Hear & There Music does not exclude any instrument from consideration. Let us know what instrument you are interested in, and we will find your qualified instructor.

Q: What should I expect for the trial lesson?
A: Teachers will typically spend 10-20 minutes with each new student. Parents are welcome to observe and ask questions during the lesson and afterwards. This is a great time for the teacher to learn about the student and any goals or past playing experience that they might have.


The teacher will assess what materials will be needed and lay out the curriculum strategy customized for each specific student. It is also an excellent opportunity for parents and students to meet teachers and take into consideration their suggested approach and overall compatibility. No decision is needed at that time. Trial lessons are $15 per household (no additional charge for additional student consideration).

Q: Do I need a piano to start piano lessons?
A: No, many students begin lessons on an affordable keyboard which is perfectly ok. We are happy to advise you on what to look for before you purchase an electronic keyboard or piano.

Q: When & Who can tune my piano?
A: The piano tuner will recommend tunings based on your instrument and indoor climate. To maintain your investment we recommend the experts at www.fixpianos.com based in Devon, Pennsylvania.

Q: What age students do you accept?
A: We offer lessons for students aged 4 and above. Some studies show that music education is most effective after age 6, however– like learning a language– it is never too early to begin immersion. Students as young as 4 have enjoyed mini-lessons on a pre-reading program.

Q: Do you offer lessons in my area?
A: We offer lessons in a roughly 20mi radius of Phoenixville, PA- from southern Montgomery County to northern Delaware County and most areas of Chester County.

Q: Do you hold a recital? Is it mandatory?
A: Yes, we have an annual recital which is known to be a highly-anticipated and fantastic event although it is completely optional for all students! Students are given the thrill of performing on a grand piano on stage complete with lights, sound, and awards for all.

Q: Is there a contract?
A: There is no contract and you can discontinue lessons at any time. We want you here because you are extremely satisfied with your experience, not because you are locked in.

Q: What if I have to cancel?
A:
Hear & There Music’s cancellation policy is more generous than any we can find. Hear & There Music understands that scheduling conflicts are a part of life. In a nutshell, you are granted one no-fee cancellation per month. We ask that you notify your teacher by 8pm the day before. The 2nd cancellation of the month or cancellations after 8pm are billed at ½ price. No-shows and cancels within 30 minutes of the scheduled start time are billed at regular price. If you have scheduling needs such as an extended vacation, we can be flexible with you.

Q: What about Summer lessons?
A:
The summer program is encouraged yet optional.  During the summer weeks, covering mid June through August, parents are offered a "Flex" Package in a range of hours to suit the needs of students and multi-student families.  These hours can be very helpful in avoiding learning loss as well as a great time to begin recital preparations or a special fun project.  The flex package is designed so you can choose the number of hours to commit, and then split these hours as you see fit anytime throughout the summer. You may also choose to continue regular weekly lessons during this time or resume in September.

Q: Do you background check your teachers?
A:
On top of meeting qualification standards as eduators, hand-selected Hear & There Music instructors have also passed background checks.

Q: How long are lessons?
A:
Most of our students take one thirty-minute lesson per week. Starter students, typically in the 4-6 year old range can take a fifteen or twenty minute mini-lesson. This is often the perfect amount of time for the attention span of a youngster, but you’d be surprised at what we can accomplish.  At the student’s request, 45 minute and 1 hr lessons are also available.

Q: How much do you charge? Can I split time among siblings?
A:
Lessons are offered time blocks from 15 minutes to 2+ hours and you can split these times among the students in your household. Teacher rates may vary, but remain competitive at roughly $1 per minute plus a small travel charge. Discounts are often given for each additional sibling taking consecutive lessons in the same family.

Q: How often do I pay?
A:
You can pay weekly, monthly or in a package of the number of lessons of your choosing per semester. While some studios have confusing rules about semester "tuition" and make-up policies, we would like you to only pay for the lessons you receive. For parents who don't like to worry about billing, they can simply add as many lessons as they like within a semester and add more if they've all been used, all clearly reflected in the online calendar, lesson history and invoicing.
