Piano Lessons For Adults In The East Valley.
Tammie's Music Studio has been teaching piano lessons for adults in the East Valley, AZ for over 20 years! It may be tough out there finding a piano teacher that has experience and who gears their lessons towards adults, but it does make a difference to find a piano teacher who does. Adults tend to move at a different pace than younger children who are learning to play the piano. Having already developed their fine motor skills and the ability to retain what they are learning, adults will generally move at a quicker pace. It's also a plus that adults can reach the pedals and you don't have to wait for their hands to grow before they start playing octaves and pieces with longer reaches.
Do Adults Need To Learn Music Theory???
Some adults that we have taught would rather not learn music theory, whereas others devour every single thing that they can possibly learn. Is it important for an adult to go through their music theory?? ....the answer will always be a yes. Why?

Learning music theory will help you become a more technical pianist, as well as helping you bring out the beauty of the piece of music you are playing. So you'll always want to make sure your piano lessons include music theory.

Is It Harder To Learn To Play The Piano As An Adult?
Although it is harder to commit to the practice time without having a parent remind you to practice on a daily basis, adults tend to learn at a much more rapid pace than young students. Part of the reason is that it is the desire of the student themselves to learn how to play the piano, whereas, sometimes children aren't always fond of practicing and learning to play an instrument. With passion and desire to excel, learning anything will be much easier. In general I would say that adults excel at twice the pace of young children.
