Piano Lessons FAQs
Is a Piano Instructor Really Necessary?
Yes, if you wish to reach an advanced level of piano playing, you will benefit immensely from a skilled piano teacher in London. Our piano teachers have performed across the world, studied with the world’s greatest pianists, and spent decades refining their craft. Furthermore, you will progress faster when you have to present your practice material to a teacher and learn to play on a weekly basis; nobody is checking in on you if you use an app to learn the piano, but if you attend a piano academy, you will feel a healthy amount of pressure.
Can I Expect Noticeable Progress Right Away?
Whether you are a beginner that wants to receive his first jazz piano lesson or an experienced instrumentalist that is looking for classical piano lessons, yes, you will start moving in the right direction in your first trial in our piano academy. If you have been working on intermediate or advanced repertoire already, our piano instructors will help you perfect that music and get it to a performance level starting in lesson one. If you are beginner, we’ll make sure you leave your piano class each week with a new concept or skill to practise at home. Of course, your improvement is contingent on your dedication to rehearsing at home – even if you take the most exceptional piano lessons, if you only learn to play the piano during your lessons with your piano teacher, you won’t improve.
Do I Need A Grand or Acoustic Piano At Home?
No, but you do need at least an 88 key digital keyboard that you can work with on your own. Preferably, if you do have a digital piano, the keys will be weighted. Nothing can match the sound and feel of a grand piano, but urban living doesn’t often allow for a large instrument, and modern digital pianos can be excellent instruments. If you are looking to take rock piano lessons or want to learn jazz piano, a digital piano might be good for you forever. However, if your goal is to play classical pieces, an acoustic piano will be necessary to unleash your full musical potential. Playing piano is a lifelong commitment and your instrument will become your most faithful companion, so we cannot recommend enough to choose it wisely. The team of piano instructors of our piano academy will be more than happy to facilitate the choice and guide you through various options and find the right fit for your individual needs.
If you have more questions for Gabriele about music education or learning to play at our Piano Centre, please contact us to arrange a trial piano lesson! We look forward to working with you around your individual needs, build your piano technique, and help you improve your musical knowledge.
