More Information About Piano Lessons

For students just starting out, a keyboard or digital piano is a great entry level alternative to a real acoustic piano. We suggest trying to buy a keyboard with 88 keys. Keyboards with a weighted hammer action are recommended as their touch response and general feel will be most similar to that of an acoustic piano. If it is at all possible, consider buying an acoustic piano - upright pianos are less space consuming - as this will provide students with a greater level of satisfaction during their practice time. Popular keyboard brands include Yamaha, Casio and Roland.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Whether you have an interest in learning to play contemporary, jazz, blues or classical piano, our piano teachers can help develop your playing through one-on-one lessons. Throughout your piano lessons, you will cover a wide range of skills ranging from basic playing, to music theory, right the way through more advanced piano study. For those just starting out, the essential elements of piano that you will learn are hand position, fingering technique and applying these skills as you learn major and minor scales and simple songs using one hand. You will progress to learning chords, such as major chords and start to put these into practice by learning simple songs. Our lessons will cover the theory side of piano, such as reading music, sight reading and chord charts. Experienced players can work on certain aspects of their playing, such as improvisational skills, genre-specific playing such as jazz, or developing their repertoire.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
