I would like to introduce you to the different methods used for training piano for beginners. The first thing that would probably come to mind is that you have to learn each individual note. To start with, this version was to teach beginners where each note is, learning to site read the music and timeless repetitions. This is a very time consuming process and students usually need a long time and plenty of lessons to be able to play the piano. If they do not lose interest and quit before they succeed playing the piano.
The second and faster method is learning to play chords instead of learning the individual notes. This way the students of beginners for piano have more fun because it is exiting and enjoyable while training to play the piano. For students that want to play songs (and most are), this method is the better and faster way and more thrilling than to learn scales. Students can normally learn to play songs within their first few lessons, and this built confidence. Chord playing is also used by guitar players.
You also can decide to just start playing around with the piano and teach yourself. It can be of great help getting used to the piano before attending classes, but keep in mind that some of the worlds best musicians taught them self.
In the second place I would like to talk about available classes for students for piano for beginners. The most serious students would normally go through colleges, universities and school programs where they would also be taught the history of music and musical instruments. Some would also go for individual one-on-one classes to learn the piano, but group classes are just as good. The only disadvantage of group courses is the lack of freedom to train when it suit you. Instructors for piano for beginners can be found in local directories, and a visit to your local music store might guide you into the right direction. With the development of the internet there are courses available online that is very great, and less expensive, and is another great way for students to learn how to play the piano.
Lastly, whatever you decide to do, it would be a good idea to do a measurement of the cost of the training, your free time available and the qualification of the instructor. With all this said, take your time on deciding, and good luck playing the piano.
