More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument - all you need for your lessons is a piano or keyboard to play on! Home lessons remove the hassle of transporting your child to and from their lessons, and can be fitted around busy work schedules more readily. Whether the lesson takes place in-home or in the studio, the content remains the same. Home piano lessons are a particularly good option for younger students. It is a big advance for young students to learn in a familiar, comfortable and supportive environment.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues piano.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
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.
