Is it necessary to have a piano in order to learn the instrument?
Having access to a piano at home before starting lessons is ideal but not necessary. Our experienced teachers can help you get started with an electric keyboard. Students purchase keyboards for practice purposes in between the weekly lessons to increase their accuracy and speed on their songs. A recommended keyboard has regular-sized keys along with touch-sensitive response capabilities. This feature allows users to control volume levels by varying the pressure applied while playing - pressing harder produces louder sounds while softer presses produce quieter ones. With this technology incorporated into your instrument, it becomes easier than ever before to create dynamic performances! So don't let the cost of a piano hold you back from pursuing music education- start today with us!
To achieve optimal results when selecting a keyboard, it is essential to keep an eye out for the following features:
- 88 Keys
- Sustain pedal, which allows for a prolonged sound when held down. This feature is particularly useful in creating an atmospheric or dramatic effect by allowing notes to linger and resonate. It's an essential tool for any serious pianist looking to elevate their playing skills.
- Touch-sensitive keys, which are designed to respond in proportion to how you play. When played forcefully, the sound will be louder while a gentle approach produces softer tones. This feature adds depth and nuance to any performance by allowing for dynamic expression through subtle variations in pressure applied during playing. With this capability at hand, musicians can create more impactful compositions that truly captivate their audience's attention.
