Piano Lessons for Beginners with a Superprof Tutor

Do you want to be the next big piano-playing sensation in Cape Town?  Do you want to know how can you start taking piano lessons? Do you want to know for how long will you need to keep taking piano classes before you can start sounding like a decent piano player? Do you keep asking yourself where you can find a piano teacher who can guide you through the process of playing this unfamiliar instrument? All of your questions are valid. In fact, if you are asking yourself these four vital questions you are ready to be a piano player. Thankfully for you, you can rest assured that the process of deciding upon a piano teacher and learning to play the piano in Cape Town is not as tedious as you may think it is. For novice players, you can learn to play the piano rather easily with a few weeks of daily practise with the right piano tutor. So what does piano practise entail? Well, a necessary first step for all beginner piano players is to become comfortable with the actual keyboard. Most piano teachers start piano lessons for beginners by getting you to play the C key as this is the simplest piano key to play. Piano lessons for beginners allow beginners to play with their right hand first. This is generally the hand that most people are comfortable with so this is the hand that you will need to use for learning to play the keys on the keyboard. A good piano teacher will allow you to master the art of playing with your right hand first before allowing you to play the keyboard with your left hand. A few classes of perfecting the art of playing the keyboard with your left hand thereafter should do the trick. A piano teacher in Cape Town will know exactly when you are ready to start understanding the keyboard better. Getting orientated with the piano keyboard is essential if you want to be a classy piano player.  The moment you can read a musical sheet, you automatically start to become a better piano player. So it is during your piano lessons for beginners that you get to play melodies to some of your best songs by using a musical sheet to guide you. Towards the end of your beginner’s lessons, you will feel much more comfortable with piano keys and start playing the piano faster. Once you have completed all the possible lessons for beginners, you are ready to move onto more advanced piano lessons. Soon you too could be showcasing your piano skills at the V & A Waterfront.

Kyle Shepherd is one of the most talked-about piano players born and bred in Cape Town.  He is among the many famous post-Apartheid jazz artists. Shepherd was born in the Cape Flats living in a mixed heritage community. This is probably where his love for jazz started. It was Shepherd’s mum who played both the piano and violin in the church choir who motivated him to love South African Jazz. Shepherd recalls hearing music from a young age and going to rehearsals from the onset. This is what made Kyle Shepherd the exceptional piano player that he is. He also had an excellent mentor- Abdullah Ibrahim. Ibrahim is one of the creators of jazz music in Cape Town. Shepherd’s story serves as inspiration as to why joining piano classes with a great mentor can work for you. You may be wondering, “Are there any piano classes near me?” There are many piano classes offered to kids and adults in Cape Town. You can attend the Woodstock Academy of Music which offers online classes.  At Table View, you can take music classes at the Legacy School of Music. Here you can take on part-time classes or do a full-time course. Despite the fact that there are many schools whereby you can learn to play the piano, you might decide that you would like to choose one teacher from the many piano teachers in Cape Town who offer to come and teach you at your home.  When taking piano lessons for beginners, you may realise that learning from home is a far better option for you.  

Piano Lessons for Beginners at Home

Many piano lessons for beginners can be offered at your home. There are several reasons why it is essential to find piano teachers who offer piano classes near you and are willing to accommodate you by coming to teach you at your home. For one, having someone who comes to teach you at home saves you the time and effort of having to travel a distance from your home to learn to play the piano. Since there is no traffic, there is no chance that you will be late for practise and in that way you can actually spend more time practising. You also may feel more comfortable when it comes to taking piano lessons from your home. This option sounds convenient but where can you find an ideal piano teacher who is willing to conduct piano lessons at your home?

Hit the Right Keys with a Superprof Tutor

Choosing a personal tutor is often a daunting task. If you type, “Piano teacher wanted,” on Gumtree, you are bound to find many adverts from teachers offering the service.
