Reviews for Taylorsville piano lessons instructors
My seven year old has been taking online pianolessons with Kyle for about a month. She's really enjoying the lessons. She wasn't too interested in learning piano before we started and to be honest she still isn't overenthusiastic about piano but she is about Kyle and his lessons. She is always excited on Thursdays because she gets to have her lesson with Kyle.
Kyle and I have talked about how much she should be practicing and so far he has a simple and effective approach. It is mainly do not push too much, too soon. He is more focused on instilling a lifetime of musical enjoyment rather than making as much progress as possible in a short amount of time. He said, "if we push her to practice too much, too soon, then her current indifference towards piano will build into a progress halting hatred." I have to agree with him on that. I had clarinet lessons
as a kid and was pushed too fast and eventually it became a chore for me and I despised it. I am sure many other adults have experienced something similar in their youth.
For now, she goes and plays through her song when she feels like it without any pressure from me or my husband to practice. Kyle's plan is to let her do this for the first six months and then we have her start practicing 5 or 6 days a week for 5 or so minutes per day. Then we gradually start to increase the practice time as her music gets more complicated.
Kyle also says that listening to music, any kind of music that she enjoys, is the most important thing. If she develops a natural love for music, then there will be much more motivation for learning and practicing an instrument
Like I mentioned at the beginning of this essay (lol), is that it has only been a month but Kyle has been very impressive and I am glad we found a teacher like him.
