Choosing a musical instrument to learn can be difficult. Drums, guitar, violin, flute, trumpet, keyboard or even singing are all great options if you want to learn about the performing arts. But of all musical instruments, the piano is the one that millions of students around the world choose, children and adults alike. And how do they learn about playing the piano?
For many students piano lessons may be part of their school or university education, others might take lessons in a private music school. But more and more students today, beginners and more experienced alike, are opting for the teaching of private tutors, and you can find the best music tutors on Superprof. Each piano teacher has experience teaching people of all years and skill levels. Our teachers know how to provide tuition in a range of genres, from jazz to classical to contemporary, and most importantly, they know how to make classes fun!
Whether they're learning the guitar, flute or drums, many students (even beginners) are already dreaming of themselves playing and singing in front of great crowds. But the reality is, to get to such an experienced level takes years and years of consistent tuition and a great foundation in the theory of music. Spending lesson after lesson on classical music theory might not seem very fun, but it's vital if you want to progress and find your voice with the piano. Once you've done this, you can get to work on your jazz, rock or contemporary pop dreams!
A vital part of your piano education is studying how to read music. It's so important because it allows you to get in contact with the music you're playing at a more detailed, technical level. After you're experienced in learning how to read, you can start to write your own compositions, and maybe you'll find your voice as a songwriter!
Scales are also essential for beginner students. They're a great exercise for your fingers, and after some time, you'll notice you can move more quickly and stretch further across your keyboard or piano. As you gain experience, you'll also start to feel more comfortable as you play, and soon you won't even need to look at the keyboard or piano to make contact with the right notes, making your playing more fluid and professional.
Many piano teachers will tell their pupils that private tuition is the best way to start playing a musical instrument, and they'd be right for a range of reasons! Firstly, every student brings their own experience, style and skill to a class. At a music school, this might mean that some students get left behind, while others are way ahead. With one-to-one education, learning is focused on only one person, and the teacher will be able to create individualised piano lessons for every student.
From beginners to more experienced students, private tutors can assess your skills, identify weak spots and provide the best activities to improve your piano playing.
Another great advantage is the flexibility that private piano lessons provide. Generally, tutors can come to their student, or they could provide studio space for their classes, so the location can be changed to suit the student. Also, children and adults alike have busy schedules these days, which leave little room for hobbies. With a private piano teacher, you're much more likely to find a day and time that works for lessons, rather than a private music school, which often will have set class times.
The final advantage is the possibility to choose what you want your tuition to focus on. A music school or university generally sticks to a specific teaching curriculum, which could be a little boring. Private education allows you to choose exactly what you're interested in learning, from theory basics to performance skills to different genres like jazz, classical and contemporary.
Many of the Superprof piano teachers in Adelaide can provide classes both in an online setting or in person, perhaps at a studio or their pupil's houses. It may be surprising that many people do opt for piano classes online, for a variety of reasons. If someone lives in a rural part of South Australia or other states like Vic or NSW, it may be more convenient to try online lessons. You might also find it easier to fit in an extra lesson every week, without having to worry about the time it takes to get there, find a park etc.
You might also find that online lessons help you to become a more independent learner, as you have to be quite vigilant with notetaking. This, as well as having to keep your work organised can allow you to retain more information over time. Finally, you can have a larger selection of piano teachers, not just from Adelaide, South Australia or Vic, but from all around Australia!
The Australia Music Examinations Board (AMEB) and Trinity College London Practical exams test students in different performing arts, from musical instruments like the violin, flute and trumpet, to singing and voice skills. Students of all ages take these exams for different reasons, like getting into a university or music school, or maybe to start working in music. While you can find all of the relevant information on the AMEB Adelaide website, just looking can be daunting, let alone actually preparing for the exam. Many of the Superprof tutors in Adelaide have completed these exams themselves, so they're in a great position to help students prepare. Lesson by lesson, explain what to expect, provide materials that helped them, work on performance skills and give general advice. With the support of a tutor, you'll find yourself ready to take the exam in no time!
Private piano classes in Adelaide could be a great choice for students from beginners to more experienced, and of all ages, from children to adults. You can look through the tutor profiles online at Superprof.com, and contact the teacher that's best for you!
