Preparing Your First Piano Lesson

If you want to get the most out of your first piano lesson, you must be well-prepared. We do not expect you to have any prior musical or pianistic experience before taking your first piano lesson as an adult beginner; all we ask is that you have the necessary equipment. To have a successful piano lesson, all you need is an acoustic or digital piano, a device with a webcam (computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone), and an internet connection. As you can see, it is quite basic and straightforward to set up.

The Content of Your First Piano Lesson

Your piano teacher will begin your first piano session by asking you questions about your history and why you’ve decided to study. He will also inquire about the amount of time you can devote to personal practice as well as your musical preferences. Even if you are anxious to begin playing, do not dismiss this initial talk as a waste of time. It is critical for your piano teacher to get to know you better in order to guide you in the proper direction and give you with the most appropriate piano lessons.

Celine Gaurier-Joubert, a pianist, founded the Online Piano Institute because she wanted individuals to benefit from the best piano education possible from the start. Too many piano teachers or piano schools concentrate on children, aspiring professional musicians, or accomplished amateur pianists. She wished to build an adult novice platform that is dedicated to them and where they may feel accepted rather than criticized. She wished to provide an enormous chance for all piano fans, regardless of musical experience, to study with renowned piano teachers.
