Piano Lessons
When you are beginning to learn the piano, you might feel that you need all the help that you can get. You might look for piano lessons online or through the mail, but choosing a local piano teacher will probably offer you the highest potential for success.
Regardless of how you choose to be tutored, you should definitely make sure that you are going to be getting piano lessons from a reputable instructor. Do not be afraid to ask for qualifications and accomplishments.
You must expect a lot from a piano teacher. Look for someone who will be able to adapt to your learning styles, providing you with many options for experience and training.
Try to find a piano instructor who works with scales, chords, and improvisation. More piano teachers are training their students on these subjects now than ever before. Make sure you find one of them, and not someone who sticks to written music alone.
Get a music teacher who plays well herself. Regardless of what has been said about, “those who cannot do, teach,” the best teachers should be able piano players themselves. It is certainly to your advantage if you can find someone who knows the tricks of the trade from experience.
When you are first taking piano lessons, you will want someone who will inspire you, but not someone who will be unkindly critical. You will want someone you can talk to on an equal level when the subject is not piano playing.
It might take a while to find the right piano teacher, but if you are located in the Calgary NW area, you have found a great place to start your search. Piano Spectrum is currently accepting new students for piano lessons in Calgary! Please feel welcome to read more about me and my teaching style by exploring my website. When you are ready, send me an email or give me a phone call to set up an initial interview to see if we are a good teacher – student fit.
In the meantime, you can keep your interest alive by studying the piano on your own. Start learning about how to read music, play scales and chords, and improvise. It can only help you when you are ready to learn with formal piano lessons through a piano instructor.
