Our Bonnyrigg Heights 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 1 on 1? Why not Bonnyrigg Heights group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons 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 individual 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.

Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels
- are experienced in playing the piano themselves

- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Typically students take piano courses 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 think the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary tutors were often 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 Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of train 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 teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches 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 focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace 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 accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire 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 3 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 best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
