Executive Summary
Ponds Music Academy is a renowned music school with over 60 enrolled students, that's Individual Piano Lessons only, a 20% annual customer growth rate, and a strong establishment in the community. It has a strong and unique product offering based on a recognised international teaching curriculum which distinguishes it from other music schools in The Ponds and surrounding suburbs. It’s unique physical location puts it within close walking distance of two major public schools with over 3000 students.

In Person
The Academy's primary product offering is in-person one-on-one piano lessons, which is supplemented by the resale of educational material (such as music books). Our in-person classes take a very structured form and adopt proprietary multinational music teaching syllabus and teaching methodology. We apply the contemporary SMART Music Program alongside Traditional Russian Piano School methodology and our education philosophy: ‘Smart Children Play Piano,’ to create a proprietary syllabus tailored individually to each student. Our teacher is a highly skilled early childhood music teacher with 30 years of experience in applying this program, and other similar programs, in children’s music teaching. A key ingredient to our success in the area has been a strong understanding of early childhood pedagogy.

In 2021, online lessons have become increasingly popular in response to government regulations, approximately 30% of our students have shifted to online learning. We have adapted quickly and assertively by making large capital expenditures into audio/visual equipment to ensure our high standards of teaching will continue online. Our online program is still growing and has the capacity for more growth.

Differentiation from Competition
Our product is highly differentiated from most music teaching schools due to the following:
1.    Trust: as an established music school with a lovable teaching staff, we have won the trust of our customers.
2.    Annual Concerts: We host concerts in a 2000 square meter music hall whereby students can showcase the music pieces that they have practiced all year for.
3.    Audio/Visual recording: Students may opt for a studio-quality audio/visual recording of their rehearsed piece in our studio.
4.    Highly Structured Curriculum: we apply a proprietary teaching curriculum that has been tested and proved to be effective in teaching children music.
5.    Teaching Skills: we are not just expert musicians; we are also expert teachers that are highly trained in children’s pedagogy.
6.    Wide age-range: Our curriculum and teaching skills allow us to teach children as young as 3 years old.
7.    Adaptive scheduling: we have a structured program for teach online in the event that students are not able to learn in-person.
Other Details
Ponds Music Academy follows the NSW School term system. We offer make-up (replacement) classes over the school holidays for those who were absent during the Term.
We also offer group lessons for a lower price, but the demand has been highest for individual classes.
Our Invoicing system is very strict rigorous. Fees are paid for the whole Term in advance. That provides business owner financial security and students commitment. See terms and conditions on our website.

The music academy is located less than 10 minutes’ walk (via well-lit safe suburban footpaths) from The Ponds High School and Riverbank Public School, which notably have a total of 3380 students. Therefore, approximately 50% of our students live in The Ponds and attend these two schools. We also attract students from the surrounding suburbs such as Schofields, Kellyville Ridge, Stanhope Gardens and Quakers Hill. Many of our students attend selective schools in the area as well.

The demographic of our students takes roughly the same shape as that of The Ponds and surrounding suburbs. It follows that approximately 80% of our students are Australian-born children of young and highly educated immigrant families that have only recently expatriated to Australia. The parents of our students typically understand the importance of music education to improving their children’s neurological development. Our slogan “Smart Children play Music” reflects and embodies this idea.

There is very little competition direct competition in the area. There have been some music schools in the area, but most have come and gone, and none have existed as long as Ponds Music Academy.

We have been very pleased with rapid growth in the number of students year after year. We are very proud of our achievements and the achievements of our students at the Conservatorium of Music Sydney as they excel in their AMEB Examinations. Many of our students have got Scholarships and acceptances at Private and Selective High Schools in Sydney because of the piano music education at Ponds Music Academy.
