Piano Lessons in Pearland - Ages We Teach

Piano Instruction for Kids in Pearland

We love working with families in Pearland, and we offer fun group piano classes as well as private lessons for children. Both private lessons and classes use method material, fun activities “off the bench,” graded literature, and other learning experiences. Our lessons are fun and inspiring, but we also focus on emphasis. We want your child to be playing enjoyable music at a high level as quickly as possible, and we love to facilitate friendships in the process.

Piano Lessons for Adults in Pearland, TX

Many adults tell us that they want to continue where their childhood piano lessons left off, and others relate that they have always wanted to play the piano. Whether you’ve been working on the keyboard for years or are just now checking off a bucket list item, we would love to work with you! We can focus on your favorite songs, worship music, holiday tunes, or classical repertoire, or we can pursue a fundamentally sound piano education that covers all of your bases. From improvisation on the piano to sight reading, we are happy to help.

What Can You Learn in Piano Lessons in Pearland?

Firstly, we emphasize reading for all of our piano students. It’s part of our traditional, classically-focused piano training, but it applies to all genres of music. We will help you read music fluently, sight read, and learn new pieces quickly (if you practice regularly). We also teach the basics of music theory, and we dive into theory more deeply as you progress. You’ll learn key signatures, tonic, dominant, subdominant chords and more, and be able to analyze basic pieces of music. Proper arm and hand technique is included as well - we don’t want our students developing bad habits that could lead to pain.

We also teach our students how to identify intervals and play by ear. This will be layered on top of your music theory training, but you will love being able to pick out a tune on the piano and add an accompaniment to it all on your own.

This barely scratches the surface of course, but in short, we want our piano students to be confident musicians who can learn challenging pieces of music all on their own.

Why Should You or Your Child Take Piano Lessons?

You are better off focusing on the tangible benefits of being a musician, and not the anecdotal applications to academics. For instance, does piano make kids smarter? Will it help them perform better in tests? Much research has been done on this subject, and most of it is poor and inconclusive.

The truth is that the piano helps kids and adults:

  • Be more confident
  • Make friends
  • Enjoy music more: classical music, pop music, the symphony, live concerts, and more included
  • Gain a worthwhile hobby that will last for a lifetime

Young musicians have the opportunity to join ensembles, collaborate with other musicians, and participate in events with their peers. The piano can be a solitary instrument, but it doesn’t need to be that way! Furthermore, knowing how to play the piano at even an intermediate level will significantly help your child feel more self-confident, especially as they enter the challenging middle school and high school years.

Young adults often learn the piano as a social tool as well, and that’s a great reason! It helps you make friends, gives you a unique and creative angle in your community, and helps you feel more confident.

Of course, playing the piano provides confidence because the ability to perform music is a universally appreciated skill. Whether you play Bartok or the Beatles, people like to hear live music. And as a pianist, you will enjoy the ability to read through and practice music at home on your own.

Can Online Piano Lessons Replace In-Person Teaching?

Truthfully no, online lessons will never replace in-person lessons. We will explore the two kinds of online instruction: live lessons and recorded lessons.

Live Lessons Online

There are many experienced piano teachers in Pearland, but if you can’t leave your home for lessons, or if you aren’t comfortable having an instructor visit you at home, you may choose online instruction with a webcam. Some students need this type of arrangement because of an odd work schedule - they might work with a teacher in a different time zone.

This arrangement can work for the student. You have real-time feedback, and the teacher will be assigning material and practice strategies designed specifically for you. However, there are some issues:

  • Camera angles and audio will always be inferior to in-person lessons
  • The teacher-student relationship will never be as significant in a digital setting
  • Kids may struggle to focus and remain disciplined if they don’t have a teacher there with them
  • Even more screen time in a screen-heavy lifestyle is not ideal

Lessons With an App or Video Series

Online materials like Simply Piano, Skoove, Pianote, and other platforms are very helpful as a supplement to weekly piano lessons. They don’t serve as a replacement. If you’re an adult who simply wants to learn a few tunes, you could accomplish that online – but if you want to become a confident and dynamic pianist (not simply learn a “party trick”), you will need real lessons with a good piano teacher.

Group Piano Lessons Vs. Private Piano Lessons

As long as the lesson is being conducted by a skilled teacher, group or piano lessons can be equally effective. However, group piano lessons are typically ideal for students at the same skill level who are playing the same music.

For instance, Cixi Music Studio groups young pianists together in age and skill-level appropriate classes, and the students learn the same materials, duets and pieces from the method book. When a student progresses through the group method material, they may be a better fit for private piano lessons.

Private piano lessons are great for anyone (beginners, kids, adults etc.), but if you are an intermediate or advanced pianist, you will especially need private lessons. That’s because your teacher will need to assign material tailored to your deficiencies and strengths, and it will be increasingly important to break through various “plateaus” in your piano journey.
