  • Happy Piano

    Happy Piano

    San Jose, CA · Mianzi Yang

    I'm a graduate student at CSUF focusing in piano pedagogy. More than two years experiences working with mostly young children, I have really enjoyed my job. I would build a solid music foundation for beginners. Also, a sound-leading approach to piano teaching is essential for all ages and levels. Train our ear for sound. Look for the sound you want. If a piano teacher only focuses on score and notes, then he misses the most important part of music training. Piano is almost the most difficult instrument to learn. Discipline and perseverance are required. As for parents, you don't necessarily to

Tips to find the best Piano Lessons in San Jose, California
Silicon Valley may be all about technology, and the foundation for this area is creativity. Piano lessons in San Jose can help students learn music skills that are surprisingly marketable. After all, video game designers still need a sound track, and sound waves are one way to model different scientific concepts. No matter the reason why you are looking for lessons, there are some things you need to consider before choosing the right instructor.

Where to Get Lessons
Through, you have a lot of options. You can book piano teachers to come to your home, visit them at their home studio or go to a classroom for lessons. Each setting has pluses and minuses. At home you can be comfortable, but you are also surrounded by distractions. At a teacher's studio, there are fewer distractions, but you might have a hard time getting in the right mood to focus on the lesson. In a classroom environment, it will probably be easier to focus, but you may not want to deal with the external distractions from other classrooms. At the end of the day, it all comes down to what you are most comfortable with. Be sure to try out several environments to find out which works best for you.

Choosing the Right Instructor
When considering piano instruction, it is crucial to find a teacher who shares your goals. Whether you want to learn enough to play a few pop tunes or be a professional pianist, you need to discuss what it will take with your piano teacher. Different lessons work toward building different skills. Work to build a lesson plan that takes you from plunking out scales to seamlessly playing tunes. After a skills assessment, your teacher should be able to give you an idea about the number of lessons and hours of practice it will take to get you to the level of proficiency you want.

Getting Started
To find different options for piano teachers and look at the costs associated with classes, enter your email and zip code at the top of the page. This will generate a list of local San Jose instructors and their typical charges for lessons. Best of all, you can try for a single lesson with no obligation.
