There are those who aim for the 1st prize at the music conservatory, to become a composer, or enter a prestigious music academy. And then there are the beginner pianists who only want to start private lessons or piano lessons to progress at their own speed. As you may already know, the piano is one of the most demanding stringed instruments. If its music is one of the most beautiful, its learning remains one of the most complex as well. Thanks to the countless notes, harmonies, the use of both hands, the treble clef or the bass clef...
Music is a part of our everyday lives. On our commute to work, at work, at home in the evening when you want to rest, on weekends to give you energy... Moments conducive to a little harmony and melody are essential.. But, unfortunately, having a great musical culture does not necessarily mean "knowing how to play music" or an instrument!
In order to succeed at learning the piano, it is necessary to find a good piano teacher who will be able to motivate you and teach you the essentials of music theory. Once this is done, the hardest part begins: learning music theory and piano pieces.
As far as music theory is concerned, 2 to 3 years will undoubtedly be necessary for you in order to : play jazz piano or classical piano, left and right hands simultaneously, to try to enter a conservatory or music teacher training school. Other things your teacher may be able to help you with is to develop your knowledge of music theory, piano chords, how to read a score, read the notes in the treble clef or bass clef, how to use a synthesizer (piano keyboard), join an orchestra to become a performer, Try your hand at the keyboard, the grand piano or the harpsichord, have a good sense of rhythm, accompany yourself on vocals to interpret contemporary music, progress in improvisation, find each key instinctively... So many perspectives that make you want to, but that require hard work in music class. In the company of a piano teacher at the pedagogical school.
Learning the piano in music school can be very stimulating. You are surrounded by other beginners like yourself and musicians from all walks of life. It may not be the fastest way to learn music, however.
That's because with one-on-one instruction you have the possibility to progress is much faster. In a familiar environment, moreover, that will reassure even the most shy, worried about playing in front of other musicians.
Rather than having a nervous breakdown when you see another beginner learning solfeggio faster, you will progress at your own speed. Better yet, you'll have the freedom to discover the history of music in the company of your teacher: the classical piano, Chopin, Beethoven, Bach (Prelude), Liszt, Schubert, Alfred Cortot, Schumann, Debussy (Clair de Lune), to name a few.
Piano: A diverse instrument
The creation of the piano dates back to the 18th century. In nearly 300 years, the instrument has undergone many evolutions, interpreters and creators of genius. But also multiple musical styles. As a beginner, you will go through many phases of learning and discovery.
Whether you have a diploma from a music conservatory or not, your private teacher will be able to go through the teaching of many musical styles during your private lessons at home. Whether it is for your personal culture and knowledge, but also of interest to your students. We think in particular of : classical piano, classical music, violin piano, chamber music, digital piano, upright piano, keyboard, grand piano, jazz piano, improvisation,pop rock, rock, pop, funk, gospel, choir, music school, popular music, blues, rhythm and blues, any many more!
More than playing the piano
As you will have understood, learning piano and music theory is not an easy task. Learning about the history of the piano is also learning about centuries of music history.
By hiring a qualified music teacher, a conservatory graduate for example, it is possible to receive an initiation that goes much further than the piano. With your teacher, you may also wish to discover much more: guitar lessons (classical guitar, electric guitar, folk guitar, rock guitar, arpeggio...), dance, transverse flute, recorder, violin, cello, viola, singing lessons to sing with an instrument, percussion, piano violin, drums, saxophone, and other types of music training.
