Many people choose to play piano for different reasons. Some people think it’s fun to have a nice jamming session with some friends. Some learn it because they need to relax and relieve some stress from everyday life and want to enjoy the benefits piano can offer. Others even learn to play piano because they want to start a career as a musician, starting a band and play in Phoenix bars or the greatest music rooms. Whatever is your motivation to learn to play the piano is a good one and you should remember is to stay motivated.
Playing piano has many other positive aspects like train your brain memory, improve your dexterity, and increase your self-esteem. Learning the scales helps you maintain your brain memory. Playing piano keys will improve your finger's dexterity and performing music will make you feel good about yourself.
Should you get a tutor to help you learn piano or should you learn it alone? The answer to that question depends on many things that we will cover here. A tutor can help you especially if you are a beginner.
A tutor can help with learning efficiency and learning quality, he can help with learning speed and he can help you maintain your motivation.
It is always a nice thing to have someone to help us achieve our goals. A tutor can refresh your motivation by remembering why you started to learn it in the first place.
A piano tutor in Phoenix can also help you learn piano fast. You will save a lot of time researching because your tutor will carry all the research for you. You can spend all the saved time learning instead of researching on your own.
Also, when you research on your own on the internet you may end up with bad quality content or even fake content. The content on the internet could have been created by anyone, but your tutor knows what to take and what to leave because of his experience in the topic. Your tutor can analyze your piano playing skills and he will give you exercises in the areas you need the most practice in, to achieve your goals in a more efficient way. Getting the proper exercises from your tutor can help you with your learning efficiency.
You won’t regret choosing to learn with a tutor. It is well-spent money.
It may be hard to decide which tutor to choose when there are so many available for you in Phoenix. We will cover the main aspects of what tutor is the most suited for you in the next section of this short guide.
There are three main aspects you need to consider when you are choosing an online tutor. You need to consider location, experience, and personality.
You need to consider where your tutor is located because it will affect travel time. We recommend choosing a tutor that is located relatively close to you, so you don’t need to travel more than one hour. You can look on maps to find out how much time it will take to get to your tutor’s location either by using your own car or by traveling through the public transportation system of Phoenix. In the case you only want to get online lessons through video chat, location is not as important. In fact, you can even choose a tutor that is in another city in the United States.
It is important to make sure your tutor has the right amount of experience depending on your skill level in piano. For example, if you are a beginner, you probably don’t need to get the most experienced tutor available in Phoenix. Choosing the right tutor will save you some money because tutors that are the most experienced are less available, so they usually charge a higher hourly wage. You need to choose a tutor that has the right skill level in piano according to your needs.
On the other hand, for an advanced piano player that still wants to enjoy some of the benefits of a tutor, it is important to not choose a tutor that is underqualified. Your tutor's priority is that you reach your goals.
Finally, you should look for a tutor that has the right personality. For example, if you are extravert when interacting with other people, you should look for a tutor that is also an extravert. You will understand each other better that way and your learning will be positively impacted.
To do that, you can start by reading descriptions provided by tutors on a tutoring website like Superprof. If after reading those you still need more information, you can send a message to the tutor of your choice.
In Phoenix, most tutors offer the first piano lesson for free. So, if you think you didn’t choose the right tutor for your needs, you can easily get another one, free of charge. Your tutor will understand because he also knows that it is important to get the right tutor to learn better.
Scales like the major scale are the building blocks of most songs. The major scale is widely used in western music. The piano is even built following the tonal architecture of the major scale. In fact, the tonal architecture of that scale is as following:
The way tones and halftones are distributed within the scale determines where the black and white keys were placed on the piano when it was designed. On the piano, you can find a set of 2 black keys followed by another set of three black keys. They represent the tones on the major scale.
There are many other scales to learn and the major scale is not the only scale you can play on the piano. You can play anything you want on a piano because it is a chromatic instrument. Chromatic means it contains all the 12 notes of western music, from C to B.
-Finger dexterity training
You can ask your tutor for some finger training exercises to help you with dexterity. Having dexterity help you play smoother.
