15 Steps To Effective Learning In Piano Class


Some students learn very slowly during the first few months of piano lessons while others learn very quick. The way to quick learning is often quite simple.

So here’s 15 easy steps to effective learning in piano class.

  1. Be at class on time. If you’re attending online, set up at least 15 minutes before your lesson and check your device and camera set-up. Budget for traffic jams, elevator queues and any other delays if you’re attending in-studio. This will help you be relaxed and ‘present’ during your lesson and you’ll learn better.
  2. Take all your books to class and have them readily available if your lesson is online.
  3. Practise.
  4. Wear your reading glasses/spectacles as prescribed by your doctor.
  5. Attend class regularly. Make the most of extra lessons and studio events.
  6. Schedule practise well. Here’s 7 Tips for Relaxed Piano Practise.
  7. Pay attention to your posture and use a suitable piano bench.
  8. Practise. Playing is necessary, but don’t just play. It’s important you practise daily.
  9. Get movement and exercise into your day. Everyday. Play games or enroll in a sports class because getting enough physical activity improves focus.
  10. Pack all your books up after class and put them where you can find them. If your lesson is in-studio, make sure you take your books home.
  11. Read your homework  book when you practise and follow your teacher’s instructions.
  12. Understand the difference between playing and practising. And do both.
  13. Play the piano for your family and bring music to family time.
  14. Play a little to relax even on busy days.
  15. Did I say practise daily? Yes, that’s the most important thing to do.
