Want to learn the piano? Read this first

Go ahead and learn the piano if…

  • You like a challenge. And you have a “never give up” attitude.
  • You are willing to commit some time (preferably daily) to practicing.
  • You accept that learning the piano properly takes a lot of time, effort, and patience.
  • You understand that you will have good days and bad days. Tip: practice more on good days, and practice less on the bad.
  • You already have an instrument to practice on. If not, you are willing to purchase a decent piano, whether acoustic or digital.
  • You can find a good and sympathetic teacher who will guide you on this piano learning journey. Such a teacher will be a valuable asset to you and he or she will be able to motivate and inspire you. Tip: read my reviews.

Don’t learn the piano if…

  • You dislike and are scared of challenges. And you give up easily.
  • You are not willing to allot time for practice. “I’m too busy” is the most-often heard excuse. Your ship will never sail out of the harbour!
  • You’re an impatient person. And you expect things to always be easy.
  • You’re a procrastinator. Many students keep putting off practicing. I hate to tell you this, but there are no shortcuts to playing the piano well. You have to practice!
  • You don’t want to get a decent instrument to practice on. Forget about learning the piano if you think you can just go to your friend’s house to practice occasionally. You definitely need your own piano!
  • You want to find a teacher who charges the cheapest rates (and probably lives nearby to you) Experienced teachers come at a premium but like everything else, you get what you pay for. It’s usually inexperienced teachers who charge cheap rates to entice would-be students.
