If you or your child are interested in learning to play the piano, there are a few things you want to think about first before you move ahead. First, you want to make sure you have enough time in the day set aside for practicing piano skills. Playing will not improve without time devoted to regular practice. You also want to think about how you or your child will go about learning to play the piano. Books and online lessons are certainly options, but you may find that you get the most out of seeing an instructor for personal lessons. Choosing a piano teacher in Santa Ana who can properly motivate students is important if you want to be able to learn and grow as a pianist.
Interviewing a Teacher Regarding Methods
Before you decide to settle on the first name you find in an online search in your area, you may want to make a list of a few instructors and arrange to interview each one. Good, experienced piano teachers not only understand but encourage these interviews. The interview gives you and the teacher (and your child, if the lessons are for him or her) a chance to get to know a bit about each other, for you to express your interests and skill level, and for your teacher to explain their approach to lessons. You can see if you mesh well and if you get a good feeling from the interview that makes you want to work with this person.
Motivation from a Teacher
A good piano teacher in Santa Ana will be someone that lets you know they can motivate you to want to learn and practice, so your skills continually grow. Motivation does not have to mean strict teaching styles; a good teacher knows what it takes to motivate each individual in the best way to get the best results. You want a teacher that will guide you, teach you, and make playing fun so that you want to learn more and more all the time.
