Piano Lessons for Beginners

What should one be aware of before starting piano lessons? First of all, chat with your piano teacher. You should feel comfortable interacting with your coach. Find out his teaching experience as we as qualifications, as well as understand what motivates him to teach. Your teacher needs to be able to clearly explain the concepts and techniques of piano playing. He must also be able to inspire you and impart correct playing techniques. You should also discuss with your teacher, your goals and objective in starting piano lessons in Singapore. Do also have a time frame in mind when setting goals.

Secondly, relax and be yourself. Understand and absorb what the teacher shares with you during your lesson. When you get home, make it a habit to practice every day. As a beginner pianist, you need not spend hours each day practicing the piano. Quality time is more important than quantity

Piano Lessons for Kids

Piano lessons for kids build self-discipline in the student, this is an asset for any child. The child understands the importance of self-discipline after going through daily piano practice over the years and seeing the improvement in piano playing skills over an extended time period.

Practicing new piano playing techniques also instill patience in a child, as well as the mindset of not giving up when faced with obstacles. Going through the phases of intrinsic techniques, warm-up techniques and conditioning techniques, the child may sometimes feel that they are not improving. Any musician will encounter good days and bad days. Sometimes bad days are prolonged period. However if he or she does not give up, the imaginary glass ceiling will be broken one day.

It is also a great idea to expose your child to performances, whether it be informal performance among peers and family members or as formal as a national competition. This helps your child gain self-confidence. This self-confidence will flow through the other areas of life and be an asset in the future.

Piano Lessons for Adults

Most adults lead a stressful life, with stress coming from work, having to raise up children and concurrently taking care of aged parents. Some adults are also stressed from relationship issues. As such many adults start piano lessons as an outlet to relieve stress. The plus point is that reduced stress levels often result in reduced contraction of chronic illness, especially heart disease, multiple sclerosis and type II diabetes.

Adult piano learners also develop a better memory. The brain also is able to adapt and change. Thus, we highly encourage adults especially senior learners who are near retiring age, to start piano for beginners. This also prevents or slows down the onset of dementia.

TESTIMONIALS

  • We located our violin coach from Stradivari Strings. My girls (10 & 4 years old) have been learning violin and piano with Yi Jia since February 2019. I’ve been impressed with Yi Jia in many ways. He’s professional and dependable. He’s always on time and never misses a lesson. He also manages to do his best to accommodate our schedule if change is required. He comes prepared with specific lesson goals and is committed to the girls’ progress. He’s especially patient with my 4 year old who can be easily distracted during an hour lesson. Yi Jia never loses his cool, and does his best to get her engaged & learning. My 10 year old says she likes Yi Jia because when she has a question or struggles with a part of music, he always stops to explain and re-teach until she gets it. He doesn’t dismiss her questions or let her skip difficult parts of music. She also likes that he challenges her to play more difficult music and patiently teaches and encourages her until she gets it. My 4 year old says she likes Yi Jia because he teaches about notes and tells her where they are on the piano and strings. She also says Yi Jia is very nice. Yijia is one of those teachers who has deep love for what they are teaching and deeply committed to student progress.

  • I taught myself to play basic piano many years back but stopped as I found that I would not improve without a piano teacher. Stradivari Strings found a great coach for me — teacher Matthew. As an adult learner, my pace of learning is not as fast as a young child. However Matthew is always patient and explains the playing techniques patiently. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to start piano lessons.

  • My son is at ABRSM grade 5 level and I was looking for a senior level coach to take him up to advance level. Stradivari Strings placed him under the guidance of piano teacher Matthew. Right from the first lessons, my son got on well with him and I am happy that we have engaged him to be our permanent piano coach.
