Let’s Face It, It’s Hard to Learn the Piano on Your Own

You’ve probably looked at a few piano lesson videos on Youtube, or maybe someone showed you a thing or two, but you’re still not able to play the way you want.

You’ve invested time and energy into trying to play, but it doesn’t seem to be working.

Ever felt like this?

  • I can play a few notes on the piano, but struggle to make music.
  • I can play with one hand, but can’t seem to play with both hands at the same time.
  • Piano sheet music looks like a foreign language.

It shouldn’t be this way, you should be able to play the songs you love. You deserve to create music!

What Genres of Music Can I Learn if I Take Piano Lessons Here?

Here are just a few genres that students love playing here.

Pop + Rock Piano Lessons on Long Island

Playing pop and rock music improves your internal pulse (playing in rhythm and feeling the beat) since you’re familiar with the majority…

of the tunes you perform. As a result, pop and rock songs are easier to learn and deliver a high level of satisfaction. Another advantage of pop and rock music is that you’ll feel an instant connection and appreciation of the songs you’re playing since you’ll know the songs already. This is why many students choose this type of music in their lessons.

When you play this style of music, you can play just the melody notes the first time you learn a tune. However, you can revisit the piece sometime later and experiment with adding in the harmonies. You can make your own chords if you want to. This aspect of artistic experimentation is a fantastic approach to discover and develop your own melodies. That is why so many people love these kinds of lessons.

Jazz Music Piano Lessons on Long Island

Jazz is a relatively new form of music that began in the 1920s in the United States and the piano was and continues to be an important part of the music.

Jazz piano is a mastery of taking traditional chords and often putting extensions on them while adding a swing feeling or groove. Improvising on chords and scales to create melodies is very common.

While one hand plays a melody on the piano, the other hand can be doing something completely different like a walking bass line or it can mimic the melody.

Jazz, traditionally, combines classical piano with expressive rhythmic notes, making it both hard and musically fascinating.

The distinctiveness of the Jazz style is immediately apparent. Expression, classic technique, improvisation, and memory are all considered to be combined in jazz That is why so many people love these kinds of lessons.

Classical Piano Lessons on Long Island

Classical music is very popular and is considered the traditional piano style and the first form of music dating back to 6th century AD.

Most people think it’s only written for instruments such as the piano, violin, cello, and bass, but it’s also written for wind, brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments.

Many instruments & music education are built on the foundation of classical piano and it is also one of the most diverse genres with many types of pieces like sonatas, etudes, rondos, symphonies, etc.

Classical piano is infamous for being challenging to perfect and requiring a lot of practice. It’s not only about learning to play the notes, it’s also about communicating the emotional undertone that the music is recognized for and conveying proper voicing throughout.

…you get to choose the songs you play. So you’ll play the music you enjoy the most!

How Are Piano Lessons Different by Age Group?

Teaching Child Students

Children are usually full of energy. Since kids usually have shorter attention spans, I focus on making piano fun and achievable for them.

I like to appeal to a child’s sense of enjoyment when teaching them.  I use the music they’re familiar with and break down learning into small chunks.

I believe that children should have the ability to problem-solve and become independent learners, which are skills they’ll need into adulthood.

Teaching Teen Students

Long Island teens have hectic schedules and frequently go from one activity to the next. To keep teens interested in lessons, I focus on motivation.

I allow all my students to pick their own music, but teens especially. This allows them to have ownership over what they play.

At this age, they value the ability to make their own judgments and set their own objectives and goals. They may feel under pressure to succeed, so finding ways to encourage them and choosing activities that help boost their confidence is important.

Teenagers are outgoing, yet they can sometimes be shy so I am careful to encourage shy students to speak up.

I have found that playing in duets and small groups is an excellent way to encourage teamwork, which allows them to learn from one another.

Teaching Adult Students

Teaching adults presents a unique set of challenges compared to teaching kids.

Adults think they can’t learn as quickly as children, but that’s not true- adults are often very driven and pick things up faster than they think.

Adult students can have better concentration and usually have a specific goal that they want to reach.

When I am teaching adults, I’m able to give them a deeper understanding of the music they’re playing. Since many adult students usually wanted to play since they were kids, it’s important to focus on and praise progress.

Learning piano is like learning a new language- you need to work at it consistently to make it stick.

The way I teach allows adults the freedom to explore their own playing while having individual practice time during the lessons so they leave the lesson fully confident, which sets them up for success when they practice at home.

How Long Will It Take Me to Learn the Piano if I have a Piano Teacher?

I get this question a lot so let me answer it for you below.

Many people want to know how long it will take them to learn to play the piano. If this is you, you probably have a song in mind and want to know how long it will take you to be able to play it. If you’re thinking about Long Island piano lessons, you might be wondering, “When do I get to the end?”

The answer to “How long does it take to learn to play the piano?” is…it depends.

I know that is not the answer you were looking for, but let me explain.

The length of time it would take you to learn to play the piano depends on how good you want to be and what your goals are.  If you have no prior piano ability, you can learn a simple tune in minutes. If you want to be a professional pianist that plays at Carnegie Hall or you want to get into music school, you’re going to have to study for years with a master piano teacher on Long Island and practice every day. But most everyday people want to:

  • Play popular songs
  • Play for fun 
  • Play for themself

These people can expect to invest two to four years (with consistent daily practicing!) to get to the level where they can sit behind a piano with confidence and just play.
