My wife and I decided on piano lessons for beginners in Singapore after our son expressed interest in learning how to play a musical instrument. The driving force behind finding someone who could teach lessons was actually my son. My wife learned to play when she was young and he loves to watch her sit down at our piano and crank out some beautiful music. I thought he might go for playing the drums, but no he wanted to play the piano. I’m sure our neighbors would appreciate his decision! Nonetheless we needed to find an instructor as my wife felt like she didn’t have enough time to do it.
We found a music centre where they teach lessons for just about any instrument imaginable. They teach kids and they teach adults. If you’ve got an interest in learning how to play an instrument, they’re willing to teach you how to play it. Even better is that he hit it off with the instructor immediately. The teacher really has a way with children and in no time at all he was picking up the rudiments of the instrument. He was able to play Chopsticks a lot faster than I thought he would.
I will say that I think us having a piano in the home has helped his progress significantly. The instructor actually recommends that parents acquire the instrument in question because practicing at home is key in learning the instrument much faster. He gets so excited after learning at the music centre that he comes right home and stars playing. We’ve actually had to set some limits because of course he needs to get his school work done. Still he has so much fun playing that even I’m thinking about taking some lessons just so I can be a part of it!
