Taking lessons in one's home is more expensive than going to a studio. But the advantages are clear and worth the extra cost. The student, of course, doesn't have to travel. But the biggest benefit is the fact that the student's home becomes the scene of the learning experience. After the teacher leaves, the space where the lesson took place takes on a special aura and resonates in the memory during practice sessions. The student also feels more relaxed and comfortable in their home, and can have on hand all materials necessary for good lessons and study. If the student is a child, the parents can observe what it taking place during the lesson, and even participate if they are interested. This is particularly helpful with very young children who might otherwise be intimidated by unfamiliar people and places.
If it is within the budget allotted for education, home lessons are the way to go.
