November 19, 2020


When Barbara was trying to get her music school off the ground in 2015, she turned to Google, Facebook, and other marketing websites to find her first students—but advertising her service with these big, faceless platforms just didn’t work. In her words, when she encountered Bidvine, it was a complete change.



Through Bidvine, Barbara's Fireworks Music School offers a flexible range of music lessons from piano lessons to guitar lessons and violin.

‘Within the first week I already had 10 pupils and then they just kept coming. After a year I had more than 300 pupils and it was all from Bidvine.’ After that, Fireworks Music School kept growing, showing that Bidvine is the fast and easy way to find customers in your local area!

1. Cooking Lessons

Cooking lessons are a great way to get your children involved in the kitchen while teaching them a valuable life skill. Chances are the first thing you will want them to learn are some basic cooking skills, to help get them started. Then once, your kids have mastered the basics they can even learn how to bake bread and desserts.

Once your kids have mastered some basics there is still plenty of room for them to explore their culinary interests. For instance, they could learn how to bake bread and desserts once they have covered the basics.

Bidvine Tip: In the request form you have the option to choose what type of cooking class you want your children to attend, whether they’re learning the basics or something more advanced.

There are also a wide variety of different cooking styles available to learn as well. So, no matter what your family’s culinary tastes are, there are plenty of options. For instance, some of the culinary choices on Bidvine’s request form include vegetarian, Italian, South-east Asian, French and Mediterranean.

You could even make it an event for everyone and sign the whole family up for a class. Who knows, you might learn something new too!


Arts and Crafts

2. Arts and Crafts

Do your children enjoy creating things? Then why not check out arts and crafts lessons!

Arts and crafts make up the perfect, creative winter indoor activities for kids. So, when the weather is less than pleasant outdoors your children will still have a fun project that entertains them.

Not to mention that an arts and crafts instructor can provide your children with a wealth of new creative material to work with that you might not have the time to come up and organise on your own.

Another top benefit of arts and crafts lessons is that their arts and crafts instructor will likely have countless art supplies. So, you won’t need to go out and buy different materials for each new arts and crafts project you or your children come up with.

3. Drawing Lessons

Does your child have a passion for drawing? Then drawing lessons are a must this winter.

When it comes to drawing, there are several different styles which your child can learn with a drawing teacher. Some of these different styles include basic sketching, portrait, cartoon or caricatures, technical, figure and fashion.

These skills can then provide your child with the perfect outlet for energy and creativity when they can’t play outside as frequently.

Your child doesn’t need to be an expert drawer to take classes either. Anyone of any experience level can take drawing lessons. After all, everyone needs to start somewhere. Then as they progress, the drawing instructor can provide them with new techniques to allow them to continue to hone their skills.

5 Benefits of Private Music Lessons


Considering booking private music lessons? Learn more about the many ways that private music lessons can benefit you in this insightful article written by Roger Mo, a professional Violin Teacher on Bidvine. With highlights like scheduling flexibility, customised instruction, and instant feedback that keeps you on track to achieve your best, you'll be inspired to start pursuing your musical passions with private lessons!


5 Benefits of Private Music Lessons

Private lessons have a notably positive impact on a string musician's progress and ability. First and foremost, private music lessons, provide customised – and differentiated – instruction for the string player, ensuring they remain at the edge of the learning curve.

The most important step is to find the right teacher. That makes all the difference in keeping a music student inspired and accountable. Once you’ve found the right instructor, you'll uncover multiple benefits of the 1:1 teacher/student ratio.


1. Scheduling Flexibility and Customisation

Unlike most group lessons or school orchestra practices, private lessons are scheduled at the student's convenience. In fact, this benefit may play into how you find the right teacher – you may need to find an instructor that offers flexible times to fit with your school, work, or family life schedule.

2. Keep Students Inspired

Unless your child is playing a string instrument in an advanced band or orchestra, odds are they are learning and practising with peers who may demonstrate a broad range of musical interests, abilities, and commitment. This can be challenging if your child is closer to the bottom or the top of that range.

Struggling students find it frustrating to work hard and see little progress because the teacher has to teach to the middle, or may pay particular interest to “star” students. On the opposite end of the spectrum naturally gifted players can become bored or rarely feel challenged in a school music class or a community youth orchestra. 

In addition to holding advanced students back, the lack of challenge can diminish the passion of these talented students for learning music. They can lose their inspiration since school-based, instructional time may not be as productive. In worst-case scenarios, gifted students might express their boredom by getting into trouble and as a result might be taken out of the music class, rather than receive the level-matched instruction they deserve.

Private lessons provide a solution to both problems, offering supplemental instruction and personalised support for struggling musicians while providing extra challenge and skill-matched instruction for more astute students.
