The piano is a beautiful and versatile musical instrument so it's hardly surprising that it's one of the most popular for students to learn. It's been shown that most children would like to learn a musical instrument and while it might seem that the guitar is in the ascendancy (it recently overtook violin in terms of popularity), the piano doesn't look like it's at risk of losing the top spot.
If you're interested in learning to play the piano, let's have a look at why you should, the challenges that you'll face, what you can learn about the piano if you're still in school, and how private piano tuition can help you to improve.
The first major benefit of learning to play the piano is for relieving stress. Those who play the piano are less likely to feel stressed and playing the piano can boost your mood and lower your blood pressure!
The piano is also great for improving your concentration. Those who play the piano have to split their concentration as their left and right hands will be doing different things while their feet are occupied by operating the pedals. The multitasking you'll master by playing the piano will also help you in other aspects of your life.
This isn't the only transferrable skill that playing the piano can teach you. Children who play the piano tend to do better at school and in exams. This is thought to be due to the concentration skills piano can teach you, but either way, it's a win-win.
The piano is also quite welcoming to beginners. With instruments like the violin, flute, or guitar, just making a note that's in tune can be difficult. However, with a piano, as long as it's in tune, pressing any key will produce a pleasing sound.
It's not all fun and games, though. Even with the help of teachers, learning to play the piano can take years of work and experience, especially if you're looking to play at a very high level.
Then there's music theory. You can be held back by a lack of music theory, especially when it comes to learning new songs or improvising. The very best pianists will want to take music theory classes in addition to their piano lessons if they don't feel they're learning enough of the theoretical side of things.
Coordination can also be difficult as you learn to play the piano. As we mentioned earlier, the piano requires you to use your hands and feet independently and while you're learning to play, expect to make a lot of errors as you attempt to independently coordinate your limbs.
Finally, there's the cost. Even if you save money by teaching yourself, you still need a piano and if you want to play an actual piano, you'll end up paying more than you would for a cheap guitar, violin, or recorder. Similarly, a piano requires maintenance and tuning, which often requires professionals, who'll also need paying.
More often than not, music lessons in school won't teach students a musical instrument as there are too many students present and it's just not feasible. That said, students who've learned how to play a musical instrument can play it for their compositions and performances during the music GCSE. That said, any student who plays a musical instrument will probably want to study music at GCSE.
As for learning the piano, however, they'll probably want to look towards learning to play outside of school at private music schools or with private tutoring.
The most effective way to learn to play any musical instrument is by working with a private tutor or music teacher. After all, a classroom full of thirty students all trying to play music makes it almost impossible to hear what you're playing and even harder for the teacher to hear what each student is doing and correct them.
The advantage of piano lessons with a private tutor is that you can learn on your terms. If you have a piano, the tutor can come to you and teach you from the comfort of your own home. If you don't, you can always go to a rehearsal space or the tutor's home if they offer lessons there.
If you're looking for a private tutor in Belfast, Country Antrim, or anywhere in Northern Ireland, check out the tutors on the Superprof website. With private tutors, you can learn different genres of piano including classical, jazz, and pop, so make sure the tutor you choose specialises in the type of music you want to play. There are also different types of tutoring available so think about which kind will work for you, your budget, and how you like to learn.
Face-to-face tutoring is arguably the best type of tutoring for learning how to play a musical instrument as the tutor can focus on you and tailor the lessons to your preferred learning style, the type of music you like, and the music theory you'll need to learn.
If you can't find any piano teachers in or around Belfast, you can always broaden your search to include online piano tutors. You'd be surprised at just how effectively you can learn to play a musical instrument from a tutor via webcam. As long as you have a webcam, microphone, and a decent internet connection, you can learn to play from tutors across Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, and the entire world!
Don't forget that a lot of the tutors on the Superprof website offer the first lesson for free. You can use these free sessions to try out a few different tutors before picking the one that's right for you. Learning to play the piano can take quite a while so you must pick the perfect tutor as you can expect to spend a lot of time tickling the ivories with them.
