How to get the Most out of Your Piano Lessons
Ready to start piano lessons? Here are a few great things to help you get the most out of your lessons at the Oakville Academy of Music. Having taught music to thousands of students since 1994 we have learned a few things about getting the most out of your lessons.
1. Start piano at the right age
Choosing the best age to start is very important to the success of your little piano student. While adults can start anytime we recommend that children start no younger than 4. Most children age 6 and up are ready to start regular private piano lessons while children under 6 years should be taught using a preschool piano program. Many of our piano teachers use My First Piano Adventure for the little ones
2. Take Lessons from Qualified and Caring Teachers
Learning is not just a matter of having a qualified piano teacher but also having a teacher who truly cares. Here at the Oakville Academy of Music we are dedicated to hiring piano teachers with warm personalities that will get to know you and your family on a personal level. The teacher’s goal is always to help you or your children achieve your musical aspirations and provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere.
3. Use a recognized piano method
It’s very important to learn how to play the piano in a logical manner. This means starting with the basics and following a proven method. A few of the popular methods that our piano teachers prefer are Faber Piano Adventures, Alfred piano methods, and the Royal Conservatory of Music. Although these are more popular programs there are many more available whether you want to learn classical, jazz, pop, or any other style of piano. Our teachers will work you and your family to choose the right program for you and your musical goals.
4. Celebrate Musical Achievement
One of the best ways to improve any skill is to constantly set and achieve goals. This is no different in your piano lessons. Here at the Oakville Academy of Music we have many opportunities for our students to set goals in their lessons. There are a minimum of two optional recitals every year, RCM examinations for our classical students, and our exclusive Musical Ladder System for every student.
5. Practice Piano Everyday
Learning how to play the piano well takes more than simply attending your piano lessons. You need to develop a regular practice schedule which means you should try to play every day if you can. It’s much better to practice a few minutes a day every day than trying to cram 2 hours in the day before your piano lesson. People develop skills gradually over time so a consistent and regular routine will be the key to your success in music. I know it can be a challenge to play every single day so you can give yourself a break if miss a day here and there . Just try to remember that consistency is the key to success. You should try to create a daily practice schedule and keep to it the best you can. This will definitely help you get more out of your piano lessons here at the Oakville Academy of Music.
6. Be Patient
It takes time to develop any skill and piano playing is no different. Most of the musicians that you listen to have been playing for may years. Nobody starts as an expert piano player. New music lessons are always a challenge. Working through these challenges and developing your technique over time is the key to mastering music. Be patient, it’s worth it!
7. Keep a music lesson dictation book
It’s very helpful in your piano lessons to use a practice journal. This will help you keep track of the songs or scales you’re working on, teacher tips, and practice schedule. You can review it daily when you sit down to practice the piano and bring it to your weekly lessons to keep it up to date.
