Helen Perris Music Studio Piano Singing Lessons Lalor Park Blacktown Hills District Western Sydney Testimonials

“Our daughter started piano lessons with Helen six months ago and we are amazed by the amount of music she has learnt and can play confidently already. Helen clearly has a genuine joy and love of music along with a depth of musical and technical knowledge that is indescribable. As a result of Helen’s upbeat and encouraging teaching style, along with her enjoyable and inspiring song choices, our daughter is excited to go to lessons every week and sad when school holiday breaks come around! We recommend Helen to anyone who wants their child to learn piano in a safe and supportive environment with the ultimate aim to develop a life long love of music, learning and ability.”

“Helen is a great teacher and a really inspiring coach and mentor. I have learned so much from her, she has helped me grow my confidence, educated my voice and helped me create good habits.

“As a mother of 2 students who do classes with Helen, I can say that Helen is a great teacher and person. I know my daughters are in great hands. Helen nurtures their voices and supports my girls at acquiring new skills with a mentorship approach that helps my girls be more confident when they follow Helen’s techniques and recommendations. It is hard to find teachers that are highly respected by teenagers and Helen is one of those rare gems loved by parents and students. I highly recommend Helen.”

“My daughter has been receiving vocal and piano lessons at HPMS for almost a year. Over this time, my daughter has become more focussed with her learning and confident in accepting new challenges. Helen is extremely professional and personable with students and parents. My daughter looks forward to learning music with Helen each week. At the end of last year, my daughter got an offer to learn the flute with her school band. She was beyond excited and could not have achieved this dream without Helen’s guidance and support. My daughter has been receiving music lessons since age 2 and nothing compares to Helen’s teaching methods. Her lessons are fun and engaging. A learning environment where exploration and creativity are nurtured and encouraged!”

– Katrina

“My teenage daughter has been learning from Helen for quite a number of years now, and absolutely adores her. Helen has a knack for understanding teens and helping them to thrive. My daughter learns piano and voice, and dabbles in composition. Through Helen’s patient coaching, I have watched her become a confident performer, even winning Eisteddfods. Helen is able to achieve just the right balance of serious and fun in lessons and is able to nurture and develop my daughter’s desire to develop her music skills in various capacities. Thank you Helen!”

“The past 9 years with Helen have been an outstanding musical journey. Helen has helped me grow in piano, teaching me new and valuable skills which have successfully helped me with many performances such as Hawkesbury Eisteddfod and the completion of my HSC. Helen’s dedication to her students is always present in the studio and concert environment which makes learning the piano more enjoyable. Helen’s quirky ways of teaching allow students, of all ages, to find new ways the learn their favourite, or difficult, pieces. Thank you Helen for your dedication to us.”

“I had vocal lessons with Helen all throughout high school and she was one of the best teachers I had. Not only is she a master of her craft, but she offered me so much support, especially throughout my HSC. My vocal skills improved substantially and I still practice the same warm-ups that Helen taught me. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for vocal or piano lessons.”

– Noni

“Helen has helped me develop as a vocalist. She has paid especial attention to ensuring I focus on maintaining an impeccable vocal technique. She has been my mentor, providing me with constant support and a wealth of knowledge for the past 6 years.”

– Kira

“Helen is a fantastic teacher. She encourages, motivates, challenges & creates a safe & friendly environment for us as students. She has been able to put me at ease & help me to relax & enjoy learning to sing.”

– Jenny

“The two years I spent as Helen’s student have been invaluable in my development as a singer. Her knowledge of both classical and contemporary techniques introduced me to two very different methods of singing, and helped me find the right mix for my voice. As well as this, Helen is infectiously enthusiastic and has left me addicted to musical theatre. Because I knew her, I have been changed for good.”

– Holly

“Helen delivers abundant commitment, energy and fun to her lessons while at the same time creating a safe, relaxed and supportive space to learn and experiment. I get the sense each lesson is tailored specifically to my goals, and to help overcome obstacles unique to myself, as no two students are the same. Her generosity with sharing her knowledge, and flexibility in different genres, have allowed me to access a broad range of music I otherwise would not have experienced. I’’ve never felt more inspired to practice and improve than before – highly recommended!”

– Leo

“My daughter tinkered a lot with the piano but wanted to learn how to play it properly. Helen was highly recommended and before long, my daughter couldn’t wait to come home from school and rehearse the piece/s Helen had taught her. She has come a long way in such a short time. This is one bill I don’t mind paying!!!”

– Anna

“I’’ve gained more from a few lessons with Helen than I have from more than a year with other singing teachers. She uses all her training, experience, teaching skill and sense of humour to make you the best singer you can possibly be… highly recommended!”

– Lynn

“I am a retiree who decided to learn the piano very late in life. I originally tried to learn from books and another music teacher but without making very much progress. However, since having fortnightly lessons from Helen for over a year now, my progress is good. Helen’s patience, enthusiasm and endless good humour make the lessons an all round pleasant experience. Helen is clearly a talented teacher and is experienced with students of all ages.”

– Dennis

“After starting lessons with Helen, I have learnt more about piano technique, and actually understanding the music that I play than in the years I spent learning the piano with other teachers.  My lessons with her are always structured and organized so that after every lesson, I feel that I have learnt something new. Having lessons with her has meant I am now more confident of my abilities and what I can achieve!”
