Bonnet Bay Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Bonnet Bay traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Bonnet Bay? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Bonnet Bay piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bonnet Bay 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 Bonnet Bay piano teachers 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 Bonnet Bay piano teachers 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 1 on 1? Why not Bonnet Bay group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group lessons.
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.

Normally students take piano lessons once a week.
However 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 personally consider the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide ideas on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and precisely is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. 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 principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
