Charlotte Piano Lessons

(8 reviews)

Piano lessons have been, and continue to be, both taught and learned throughout the world. It is a commonly held belief that taking piano lessons should be started at a very early age. It is also believed that taking piano lessons has to involve examinations in combination with constant practice. While living in Charlotte, NC, starting out as a beginner, it can take years and even decades to play like Maxim. Do you think these beliefs are true? Which of them is just a myth?

Myth 1: I Can’t Make Lots of Mistakes
The truth is, you will likely not be having piano lessons if you already know how to play Canon in D. Most teachers will teach you by starting with the basics and if they are a good teacher, they will let you learn by making mistakes. It actually helps to fix the problems.

For instance, fingering – eye movement – and other practice come along when you hit the beat. If you worry about making mistakes, then how are you going to play it well? Don’t be distracted by the fact that your teacher will point out your mistakes, because that’s what they are supposed to do. They do it to improve your piano skills. It is important to have self-confidence and not be afraid of making mistakes because practice makes perfect. It does.

Myth 2: I Should Have Started Piano Lessons When I Was Six
According to the personal experiences of many people who learned piano a little bit later in life, this is an incorrect perspective. If you have the will and the passion to learn, nothing can stop you from playing piano. Of course, a child may learn faster due to their natural ability to focus, but children don’t necessarily have the burning desire of an adult who decides to take piano lessons. At the Charlotte, NC Academy, many adults are actually beginners. While some begin to pick up the previous lesson where they left off; some adults are just getting started.

Myth 3: I Have to Learn Physical Technique Before I Am Able to Play Music
Accuracy is by far one of the most important aspects, but there are other things that are also important - and you will need a lot of practice. Interpreting the repertoire might not come in a day but you can learn it by doing it over and over. Fingering technique is learned while you play the music. It comes naturally as you blend in the music with your expression. There are indeed, difficulty levels but that should not be a barrier.

Myth 4: Long Sessions Will Make You Learn Faster
This is not true. The longer you learn, the more information your brain has to try to process in a day. The best way is to learn is to study 30 minutes per day and practice the new things you learned that day before the next meeting.

Myth 5: An Online Directory Will Never Find You a Good Teacher
This is not true. In Charlotte, NC for instance, lessons.com has accepted many applicants of students and teachers for piano lessons and they have testified how satisfied they are to finally meet the right teacher.
