While I teach some pieces by rote, everyone is encouraged to learn to read music and understand the fundamentals of harmony. I offer students performance opportunities in an informal setting, which motivates them to prepare recital pieces. Everyone has something to work on that they enjoy while they are a

Cleveland Piano Lessons

(11 reviews)

Theory says: You can only learn how to play a piano in a classic music school. We can say that it is true that you can learn professional piano playing in a classic music school and upgrade your knowledge at a music academy with famous music instructors. This also requires a lot more theoretic knowledge. But, it is also worth saying that not all of us need to learn to play piano that a professional level.

The average person who wants to play piano for his own needs and satisfaction, doesn't need an education in a classic music school. Anybody can learn to play at a satisfactory level with a home instructor or by taking some piano music lessons. If you have the desire and dedication, you can learn how to play piano even without any classic musical education.

Music Understanding & Playing the Piano

Music understanding enhances when you learn to play any instrument-especially piano. This is an undisputable fact and this is why it is important to invest in learning to play piano with professional help, because when you get the right music foundation, this is the source from which you will upgrade your additional skills and talents.

You can explain it also the other way around: if you have a better understanding of music, you will play an instrument better. Suddenly you "see better", just how genius are certain music solutions, we admire more the creativity of old masters, and then we also try to play what we know better. Old songs get a deeper meaning and suddenly the same old melody becomes more beautiful and more interesting. With piano lessons, you will enhance your understanding of music far better than you would any other way.

Benefits of Music Lessons

Let's compare piano lessons with learning another language. From a course book you can memorize a few sentences or phrases in, for example, the French language, but this doesn't mean you have learned to speak French! Instead of actual knowledge, you will probably look ridiculous when you try to use your "knowledge" in Canada, or France. This is the reason why it is better to take an actual language course and learn language basics from someone who can explain it to you practically and theoretically. This acquired knowledge you will upgrade through reading and speaking. The same applies to playing piano. You will easily memorize a few tunes from YouTube but this will be just mechanical tone repetition. When you take lessons and learn music basics, you will be ready to upgrade your knowledge on your own.

With all the facts about why it is good to take piano lessons in Cleveland OH, it is good to add a bit more info. You will learn and important part of music theory that is simply necessary and unavoidable to play an instrument as an amateur. You will learn actual necessary basics, without any additional burden that students in classic music schools must go through. You will save yourself from this because you are not learning to play with the ambition of becoming a professional musician. You want to learn to play piano as an amateur, for your own fun, to make your evenings with friends more fun and interesting-and this music course is just the right thing to start with.
