Punchbowl Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Punchbowl traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Punchbowl? And on which days of the week?

Please call 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.

When do you offer Punchbowl piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Punchbowl 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 Punchbowl 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Punchbowl piano tutors 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 Punchbowl group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 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 Punchbowl piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Punchbowl 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 lessons once a week.

But 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 believe the best approach to response to this question 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well 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 practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a business

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano coach will always be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
