The first step is obviously to buy a piano.
The price of a piano can sometimes intimidate new students. If this is the case, you may want to rent a piano to practice with until you are ready to purchase your own piano.
Depending on the type of piano you want to play, you may also need to purchase:
Certain piano accessories are not obligartory in order for you to learn the piano. Don't hesitate to ask your piano tutor for advice on what accessories you should buy in order to play the music you want to.
You'll have so many talented Piano tutors to choose from!
Bear in mind when you begin learning a new instrument that you’re not going to become the greatest by lazing on the sofa. The piano requires you to work every day, hour upon hour, if you want to get your break and make it as a virtuoso piano, a concert soloist or even sampled on the next hit music record. This is particularly so if the piano doesn't come naturally to you and is not in your genes.
Of course, you’re not obliged to play this keyboard instrument in a professional capacity: some novice pianists play just for fun! Some people own a piano and like to sit and play every now and then, for their own pleasure and for that of that family. What could be more peaceful and beneficial to your mental health than sitting down and producing sweet sounds from a piano?
But it’s always satisfying to reach the next level. Most people are born with the urge to keep trying at something, so if this is you and the piano is your thing then learning to read and play renowned works for the piano might be your ultimate goal.
An introduction to music through novice music courses or beginner piano lessons with a music teacher will usually equip most trainee musicians with a sense of rhythm, harmony and melody.
Even if the theory side of things is a bit boring in the context and you'd prefer to be making music, it’s an essential element of learning the piano. Even the most famous pianists know all about scales and tempo and musical genres.
Another benefit of nailing your music theory is that the notes should come naturally to you, which will mean you are that one step closer to being able to play popular compositions made famous by the greats. Even if you’re lucky enough to be pitch-perfect pitch and have a very astute ear, music theory will be a huge help for your overall music education.
This means you may need to sign up for music theory lessons too when you contact a music teacher about learning piano in Edinburgh, as some courses may only focus on practice. Luckily for you, our tutors will be able to offer one or the other or both, depending on what you need!
Private piano lessons at home are ideal for adult and child learners alike, and you'll always find a tutor who can be flexible and offer tuition outside of school times. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be able to make progress!
According to Scotland.org, "The classical music scene is thriving in Scotland, with our musicians and orchestras making a significant contribution to cultural life both in Scotland and around the world." But when did it become so involved in classical music?
Well experts say that Scotland's interest in classical music can be traced back to the 17th century when piano concerts and other classical instruments were played to the wealthy in drawing rooms across the country.
So where can you listen to classical music in Edinburgh now?
Edinburgh has a society of musicians who play to people who are interested in the genre while there are also piano meetups for people who want to join. But, of course, playing the piano doesn't mean that you have to play classical music, there are also opportunities for musicians to play all sorts of music genres. If you enrol on a Music course in Edinburgh then you'll become familiar with all of the local places to meet up and discuss your passions (or even play music) with like-minded individuals.
Edinburgh has a range of places where you can study music, including piano.
Morningside School of Music offers piano lessons for all ages, while Edinburgh College of Art has qualifications on offer for those budding musicians.
Alternatively, you can study Music at the University of Edinburgh (a BMus qualification), or at Edinburgh Napier Uni.
There are various other music schools too such as Reid School of Music, the Academy of Music and Sound and the Edinburgh School of Music. How is that for choice?!
Although you can usually find online piano tutorials (which cost nothing if looking on sites like YouTube) for your initial introduction to music, nothing is quite as effective as being in the company of a qualified music teacher who can sit next to you and offer you guidance.
saying that though, teaching yourself using online resources is good for finding sheet music and advice for free, so we suggest doing this as well as having lessons if you are very eager to learn!
The support from a qualified and experienced teacher often makes the learning process a whole lot more enjoyable and effective than plunging head-first into learning to play the piano on your own, as it's always nice to work with someone, isn't it?
Finding a teacher with experience in giving lessons to novice pianists is ideal if you want to advance quickly, and individual lessons are generally much more tailored to your needs. When choosing your tutor, you can normally get one free session to make sure that you and your tutor are going to get along, meaning you can move forward with confidence.
Superprof can connect you with nearly 70 teachers in Edinburgh and tutors are usually willing to give piano lessons at home.
Each teacher on Superprof provides a picture and a summary of their experience and qualifications. They will also list their location, hourly rate, references and feedback from former/current students along with the payment types accepted. They might even offer some insight into how they go about teaching, but you might have to wait for that until they are able to assess your needs and work out a realistic schedule for you!
