Looking to improve your playing? Maybe you’ve decided that it’s time to learn to play that one song you’ve always loved. Either way, professional piano lessons are a great outlet to consider - an outlet made fun & simple thanks to Superprof!
Have you ever been at a family gathering or a party with friends, then all of a sudden someone begins to bang out a tune on the piano somewhere in the living room? Everybody is smiling, laughing and singing along to something so simple, yet so pure. The piano connects us like no other instrument, it forms the foundation of most songs and as a musical instrument, it is incredibly easy to come by (despite being somewhat tricky to transport). Nevertheless, learning to play the piano is a humble and admirable goal, no matter what skill level you are trying to achieve.
Of course, your skill level as a budding pianist may determine your future in the field - and if persistent, may open up a whole world of opportunities. Rather than casually learning a song or two, perhaps you’d like to seriously consider the career avenues the piano can take you - maybe you’d like to become part of a local orchestra, a solo performer, or maybe you’d like to start writing your own original compositions/pop songs. Whatever it is, piano lessons Melbourne can give you a head start in any professional musical field and help expand your music knowledge and theory. Learning the foundations of music theory through piano is especially useful for those interested in songwriting, as it can help determine what chords work with one another and familiarise you with different keys and song structures. Now your performance can showcase both your voice and piano playing skills.
If professional playing isn’t your cup of tea, you can rest assured knowing that the piano is very forgiving and provides an excellent casual hobby to almost anyone - no matter what age or background. Whether you are looking to provide lessons for your children or you are at retirement age, there are no prerequisites for learning a new instrument.
Finding the right piano teacher for you can seem like a daunting task - with so many schools, academies and private tutors to consider, you may feel like you have your hands full and not know exactly where to start. Luckily with Superprof, choosing from the many piano tutors listed through our site is easy. All of our Melbourne classes are centralised into one online location so you can pick and choose who you’d prefer to get started with. This decision is further made easier with each teachers’ hourly rate, location, methodology and experience/background being made clear to the student on their own unique profile. The rate of each lesson may be particularly relevant to those with a much smaller budget (i.e. students, those in part-time work) as weekly classes may become expensive over an extended period of time. Luckily, Superprof still maintains a range of available teachers that offer private piano lessons at an affordable cost, so even those who are more socio-economically affected can still achieve their piano goals.
Who you contact and what you learn within each lesson will also greatly depend on what you are solely seeking to achieve as a student. Most of our tutors are fully open to students coming from all different skill levels and backgrounds and will try their best to adapt to your needs and overall goals using their own unique teaching method. Many teachers are classically trained, and therefore may be inclined to guide you with methods that lead further into this style of playing, however, as most teachers have years of ongoing experience with a range of students, training in other styles of music such as jazz, pop and rock ballads is also a possibility. These lessons can take you anywhere, classical to contemporary, beginner to expert.
In today’s stressful and busy climate, it can often be difficult to accommodate time throughout the week for hobbies, education and self-care. At Superprof, we understand that not everyone has an open schedule, which is why many of our tutors have adaptable hours and lesson plans to sync up with your own personal lifestyle. If you are unable to attend a lesson in person for whatever reason (i.e. sickness, conflicting schedules, etc.), your tutor may organise a personalised online lesson with you via webcam or alternatively, may come to your location at your convenience (a travel fee may apply). These remote lessons may focus more on theory elements and aspects of piano that do not require practical application i.e. note reading. Additionally, it is worth noting that these lessons do not necessarily have to be one-on-one, and can be taken with small groups if that is something you would rather take part in. More than anything, learning piano should be a fun and supportive experience in an environment where you feel most comfortable.
A growing number of studies have shown that learning a music instrument, particularly the piano, can have a long lasting positive influence on the way the brain receives and communicates information. This is particularly evident in younger developing brains, where motor controls used to learn piano at an early stage can help prevent future memory loss and increase overall cognitive ability.
As well as these mental changes, learning to play the piano can provide you with a range of personal traits that help you develop and grow. While weekly classes will provide you with the discipline and perseverance to achieve your music goals, the satisfaction from being able to confidently play a variety of compositions will leave you self assured in not just your musical ability, but your strength as an individual.
Finally, it is well worth noting that playing the piano can serve as a welcome distraction to the brain in times of personal stress. Returning to the piano can provide comfort and calm by forcing the brain to concentrate on an activity that is familiar and welcoming. Engaging in the piano as a form of emotional self-expression is therefore incredibly beneficial to your mental health. Find a tutor for piano lessons Melbourne!
