Bonnyrigg Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Bonnyrigg traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Bonnyrigg? 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Bonnyrigg piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bonnyrigg 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 Bonnyrigg piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Bonnyrigg 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 Bonnyrigg group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 private lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group classes.
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.

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

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 believe the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first tutors were frequently 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 practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations 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 train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer 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 sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 small section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory 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 honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
