Why You Need a Piano Tutor

Is your child intrigued by the piano? Whether your child is learning to play the piano for fun, recreation, or to become the next Beethoven, a private piano tutor will definitely pay off. Until somebody actually attempts to learn the piano it may not be so obvious how much of complex task the process is. Posture, reading music notes, rhythm, and counting, all serve a purpose with this kind of foreign object. A piano tutor can help a student surpass their peers if your child is in the school band or simply help them learn. Every child learns at their own pace, and because of this progression, the process happens at different times. For example, a student may have no problem counting beats correctly but may find it much too difficult to read music notes. Piano tutoring can help build your child’s confidence with also developing their own style, thus reducing their frustration.

The piano is known to be one of the first instruments any musician should learn in order to build upon their repertoire later on. If your child has expressed interests in music and learning how to play an instrument, the piano is a fantastic start. Learning the piano can launch your child’s career into the music industry but it also can help improve fine motor skills. Unlike most other instruments the piano requires your child to use both hands at the same time while having complete control although one hand might be moving quickly while the other one is much slower. This is just one of the many reasons to get behind the keys outside of actually learning how to play the piano.

Learning to play the piano at such an early age, can also assure that your child learns instruments later on in life if they continue to find interest in the business. For example, I took percussion classes while I was in middle school and the best student in the class was a classically trained pianist. He was years ahead of us all in his percussion playing ability, although he had the exact same amount of experience playing percussion. He now travels the world playing keyboard with a band and has found lasting success in an ultra-competitive industry, and it all started with him learning the piano at a young age. There is zero reason why this could not be your child but you need to take the first step toward that and find "a piano tutor near me” or "piano tutoring near me.”

Singers also vastly benefit from learning an instrument such as the piano. Several of the greatest singers in the industry today know how to play the piano well, from Sara Bareilles to Alicia Keys to John Legend. Learning how to play the piano will help you as a singer because it will only enhance your musical skills. Once you start thinking from an instrumental standpoint it will completely change how you approach the music making process. But not only will it help you create better music but it will also help you with your voice control and how you actually sing. You might even find different melodies and harmonies that you did not know you had when you find a piano tutor and get to work.

If you are currently in a band or a working musician, you know how important it is to play several different instruments. You can get a variety of jobs and it can even help you break into a sector of the music industry you would not have even been able to before working with a piano tutor. You might find that you are not only a live musician who can play with bands but that you can also score movies or even produce songs for some of the top artists in the game. Learning a new instrument such as the piano with one of our tutors will only broaden your horizons in your career.

The piano is also a fantastic hobby to pick up if you are looking for something fun to learn. Working with our music tutors will make sure you have fun while learning something new. Playing your own music is not only soothing but it will keep you active. You might be able to play at your church or at local functions when you see your skills begin to take off while working with one of our adept tutors. You will also be able to see your results right away as your skills will improve after each session. Playing the piano is a great way to reduce stress and can be an outlet that you can turn to each day whenever you get off of work or just have a long day. It all starts with HeyTutor.

Benefits of Hiring a Piano Tutor

Expert piano tutors are knowledgeable about different music literature and styles, which can help your child discover what new music to learn and what goal to pursue next. Having an instructor to report to and to receive a high five from, is sometimes all someone needs to remain stimulated and excited about learning their instrument. It is always easier to work for something when you know someone is rooting for you and that you’re being held accountable by your tutor. Another benefit of working with a one-on-one piano tutor is that you learn the fundamentals of playing instantaneously. HeyTutor has a platform of well-trained piano tutors ready to help build a solid foundation with your child.

Typically when a child takes a piano lesson it is in a group session with several other students. The teacher walks around and tries to give each student a bit of individualized training, but of course, there are favorites and some get drowned out by others. At HeyTutor our tutors will not allow this to happen, because they are focusing on your child exclusively. The main benefit of working with one of our tutors is that your child will not only be getting lessons from someone who has a deep understanding of the piano, but also someone who is a phenomenal tutor. Our tutors can do and teach, which is quite rare. But it creates the prime opportunity for your student to be able to learn the piano while also having fun.

If you are a singer who is currently working, you will have different needs than a child who is just learning. You probably are a bit more musical savvy and can at least dabble on the piano. Our general music tutors will take what you do know and what you do not know to get the best out of your private sessions together. And if you do want to start from scratch our tutors are fine with that as well, they will go as fast or as slow as you would like. At the end of your sessions, the most important thing is that you have learned the piano. You want to walk away from your time with your tutor knowing that you are beyond competent behind the keys and that you can take what you learn and apply it to your career as a singer. Our tutors do not want you to get on stage and freeze up right before you are about to belt out into your solo. They want you to have the same confidence in your piano playing skills as you do in your voice. If you do what you are told and focus, there is no reason why this should not be a reality for you one day.

“I need a piano tutor” is what you need to be looking into if you want a truly hands-on experience. When you work with one of our tutors they pride themselves on making the lessons enjoyable. The piano can be hard as there are several aspects in playing that people seem to overlook. But it ultimately should be a fun experience because you are creating beautiful music. At first, things are going to be troubling, but our tutors want to ease you into the process. They do not want it to feel like work or homework. Instead, it will be something that you look forward to doing so that you can master the piano and bring out the fullest of your musical potential.

Our tutors are passionate about playing the piano and this will rub off on you the more time you spend with them. What will happen is later on in your career you will lean back on the things you have learned from your tutor and the sessions you have had with them. It is truly a fantastic position to be in if you want to take music seriously or you simply just want to be able to play a few songs. HeyTutor tutors dedicate their effort to your learning, playing, and succeeding on the piano. Search hundreds of profiles today to find your perfect tutoring match or let our team of talented reps help you out. Either way, HeyTutor makes learning the piano a great time!
