Piano Teacher Punchbowl – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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 class.

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 lessons.

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 classes?

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 5 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 engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Punchbowl piano trainers 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 classes?

Group piano lessons 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 individual lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.

Am I too old to start learning to play piano?

NO! There is no set age to start 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 tutors 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 classes 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 answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical family and their primary teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher 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 rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Hard

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

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not comfortable with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. 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 exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!

A piano teacher will always be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.

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