88 Keys. Infinite Possibilities.
The piano is often referred to as the “gateway instrument.” It is the first instrument that many children learn because it eliminates the challenges that children face due to hand size, body size or finger strength. The piano is also ideal for rehearsal and musical composition. This is why for many, the piano is their instrument of choice. Most students taking private piano lessons learn up to 60% faster. YouTube or other online lesson formats lack in assessing skill level and cannot provide unique lesson plans.
Here are some advantages to taking private in-home piano lessons:
- Fully customized lessons – no “one size fits all” lessons
- No traffic and no scheduling hassles – take lessons in your best learning environment
- Learn to play piano from a certified, local piano instructor
Learning the piano can help an individual develop discipline, confidence, and motor skills, and is proven to help with academics. All of our piano teachers are certified and are personally interviewed to ensure your piano lessons are being taught from an educated, knowledgeable instructor!
Why take lessons?
When you first start learning how to play an instrument, holding a note for a couple of beats or hitting a high pitch feels like an amazing achievement. As you practice and become a more experienced musician, making music enjoyable, not only to your ear but to others’ as well, is a very rewarding experience. Taking music lessons from an experienced instructor who knows how to assess individual skill levels and tailor your lessons to your particular ambitions will help you meet your goals much faster.
Here are some other ways you can benefit from learning an instrument:
- Studies show that learning an instrument increases self-confidence, memory, and has proven to relieve stress.
- Music lessons have been found to improve how the brain processes the spoken word. This finding could lead to improving the reading ability of children who have dyslexia and other reading problems.
- A study by E. Glenn Schellenberg at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, as published in a 2004 issue of Psychological Science, found an increase in the IQs of six-year olds who were given weekly piano and voice lessons.
- Studies have shown that students who play instruments are often better in math and achieve higher grades in school than students who don’t. Source: Friedman, B.
