    Riverside, CA 92506

    People come to music for a great number of reasons, consequently I tailor my lessons to each individual student's needs and wants. We learn different ways. Some of us are more visual, some more tactile, some more intuitive, some more cerebral, etc. Understanding this allows me to adapt to each student's most natural mode of learning so that the material is grasped more easily (therefore more quickly), and so that it is retained longer. If you live near Riverside, California USA or plan to visit Southern California, I would be honored to share my musical experience and knowledge with you.

Riverside Piano Lessons

(14 reviews)

Piano is an interesting musical instrument to learn. As a matter of fact, it is almost impossible for any music to be played without the presence of a piano. It is however, the most common and popular instrument in the world today. Surprisingly, despite the popularity of piano, it is also a very complex instrument in the sense that you cannot just sit and learn it all on your own. As a matter of fact, you need a teacher in order to be wonderful on this instrument. It may interest you to know that everyone that learns this musical instrument has one reason or the other. Some players of this instrument learned for a public performance whereas others just learned in order to play it at home. Nevertheless, whichever way, you will still need a qualified teacher to lead you.

Qualities of a Good Teacher

In order to learn this instrument, there are some qualities which you should be looking for in a teacher before employing them to teach you piano. In Riverside, CA, there are quite a lot of teachers who have such qualities that make them qualified enough to handle your piano lessons. You do not need to go elsewhere-all you need to do is follow the steps below and you will definitely be able to engage a good teacher that will make you a pro at piano playing.

Here are some qualities a good piano teacher should possess;

Patience

A good piano teacher should have this quality. As a matter of fact, this is a must for every teacher. Any teacher that is not patient enough may find it difficult to impact a student. It may interest you to know that students’ assimilation abilities are not the same. Hence, it is very important for a teacher to possess the inner attribute of being patient while handling students. Therefore, you as a piano student, should take your time to find out the temperament of your teacher.

Style of Play

As we know, a piano is a complex musical instrument and every player has their own style of play. You as a person also have your favourite style and you need that in your teacher. Your teacher may be very good playing the instrument but not exactly in your style. Therefore, it is very important you ascertain the style of play of any teacher and check whether it suites what you are looking for before engaging such teacher. However, varieties of music are played differently and some teachers are good in some and not good in others. Thus, you should look for a teacher that plays what you love very well as this will encourage and quicken you in mastering the instrument.

Passion

Every good teacher should be passionate. Professionalism is good but in order to be impactful, passion must play its role in learning the basics. It is passion that makes a teacher repeat a particular lesson over and over again until the student understands it. On the other hand, passion brings out the best in a teacher as he plays in a way to show you what joy you can derive from music. You can find out teacher’s passion for teaching and playing through interviewing his past students or engaging a professional who will give you other strategies you can use in finding out.

Dedication

A good teacher is dedicated to his job as a piano teacher. At first, they may need to stretch you a little by handling you during normal classes and also coming for follow ups. You can discover if your potential teacher does this by verifying it with his past students.
