Whether violin, voice, guitar or keyboard, playing a musical instrument and its theory is an excellent way to train your brain, express yourself creatively and just have some fun, regardless of if it's jazz, rock, or classical, and can even get you into a conservatorium. The piano was found by the Australian Music Association in 2007, which, after the acoustic guitar, to be the second most played instrument in Australia, north, south, east, or west.
Superprof tutors have been playing, teaching, and even singing for years, teaching students of all ages to master the skills needed to play the piano, whether children or adults. From music theory to singing accompaniment, to playing complex songs, there are tutors who are free to help all students play their favourite music!
All students in Tasmania have different goals for their learning, and a benefit of taking lessons with a private piano tutor is that this teacher really takes the time to understand their student, preparing lessons to match your level, incorporating this into their teaching. Your teacher will give you tasks that will challenge you to be a better pianist, which will be free and creative too.
Make sure you choose the right teacher for you by reading their online profile which includes information regarding their years of teaching experience, if they are versed in certain styles, like classical or western, and past student reviews. Instead of a strict school experience, our teachers use their knowledge to pass on a love for the piano and its different styles.
It may not be the most fun part of your lessons (even the tutors admit it!), learning music theory and technique from your teacher as a beginner student helps you create good foundations for being the best musician possible, whether you continue with classical piano or move on to any other genre. Here are some of the basic theory students of any age are free to cover with their private tutor:
Most tutors believe learning to read music is one of the most useful skills for a musician. This helps you better understand the music you're playing or singing to, and can also be applied to other instruments, including the violin or guitar. When you're able to read the music of different songs, you can analyse them, modify them and add you're own style. You can even begin to write your own new songs, and maybe even one day find yourself recording them in a studio!
As all teachers in Tasmania will also say, essential to your music theory, regardless of the school of music, are scales. While they're not always the most exciting lessons, scale education is indispensable for finger exercise. This gives you experience rapidly moving from note to note, and aids you in stretching your hands that little bit further. Scale repetition also helps you memorise the keys of the piano, meaning you won't need to look down to recognise which notes to use. Scales can also help in recognising different keys and their characteristics, as well as the scale degrees within these.
Theory concepts like keys, pitch, rhythm and major and minor chords are all useful in becoming the best piano player possible, especially if you're looking to get into a classical musical Conservatorium in a larger city like Melbourne. You'll be free to learn about these in lessons with your private tutor anywhere in Hobart, from north to south, east to west.\
Other than just the education and development of a group of musical skills, tuition in musical instruments has emotional and mental benefits for students, both child and grownup. First of all, the class is a space for the tutor to teach you something you love.
Music is simply fun, with Superprof tutors will always making sure students have a great experience in the studio, all while learning. Piano playing is great a way to get in touch with your self emotionally, with therapeutic benefits too. It also gives a sense of accomplishment, which stems from months or years of hard work, making you realise you've improved over the period of these years.
Studies have also shown that playing music has positive effects on your brain, which simply grow the longer you've been playing. A neurologist from Harvard University, Dr Gottfried Schlaug found in a 2003 study that long time musicians have a brain structure that is significantly different from those who never played anything. This and a range of other studies have found that learning to play music can help with a variety of brain functions from problem-solving to memory retention, even as you age.
The earlier you start, the better, so it's a great idea for children to start playing at a young age, especially before 9. Emory University neuropsychologist Brenda Hanna-Pladdy even showed in her 2011 study that your brain never loses these benefits, even if you don't play for long periods of time, even years. This gives a voice to the notion that musical education can offer calmness if lessons are taken when things go south in your life.
Several exams can grade students in Tas on their piano playing, from the Australia Music Examinations Board (AMEB) exams, Tasmania Conservatorium of Music exams, to the Year 11 and 12 Tasmanian TCE Certificate of Education high school Music course, for which private Superprof tutors can assist in getting you ready. Dozens of our teachers have undertaken these exams themselves, hence are familiar with how assessments play out, as well as what skills are necessary to pass at different levels. By offering focused, detailed feedback, private tutors are able to help students enter exams confidently, achieving high grades.
So if you want to help teach your children to learn new skills while having fun, or if your need for classical music theory comes from preparation for a high school exam, taking lessons with a private piano tutor is a fantastic choice. Tutors are based in Hobart's north, south, east, and west, so you won't have to move all the way to Melbourne to find a great teacher near your home.
