Choosing a Proper Piano Tutorial

If you’re trying to learn to play the piano using a piano tutorial, it’s important to research the various different options available to you. There are a plethora of piano tutorials available on the market. Some are free and others are paid or subscription based. They all have their various benefits and shortfalls, but with a bit of patience and due-diligence you can find the piano tutorial that is right for you. Don’t settle for the first piece of software or equipment that comes across your eyes. Find out what’s best for you, your schedule and your learning style. This attention to detail will pay off in the end with a more efficient and pleasant piano learning experience.

There are certain things you want to pay attention to when trying to choose a piano tutorial. The first, and often most obvious, thing you want to consider is the style of tutorial. Is it a piano tutorial that will require a huge time commitment, or can it be done in small steps in your spare time. If you have a schedule that is already quite hectic, something that is extremely time consuming may not be the best option for you. On the other hand if you have lots of time to dedicate to your piano study, it may be best to go with a more intensive training program or piano tutorial.

Another factor that is often quite obvious is the skill level required by the piano tutorial option. Be sure to pay attention to the level of difficulty for any piano tutorial course you are considering going through. Some tutorials are meant for more advanced players and may just cause you frustration if you are just a beginner starting out. Other tutorials are meant for complete beginners to the piano and may cause equal frustration for more intermediate or advanced players. Usually you can tell the difficulty of a piano tutorial by reading through the introduction or first little bit of actual lessons. Remember to never judge a piano tutorial by its cover or title alone.

Something else you will want to pay attention to is the instructor or creator of the particular piano tutorial you’re interested in. Sometimes piano tutorials are made by people who do not really play the piano well. Be sure you do a little bit of research on the instructor or creator by going on the internet and searching through YouTube or Google for any articles, videos, audio or other media that can give you an idea of their skill and experience. If it’s clear to you that they play the piano very well, or play in the style you want and have credits to their name, it may be a good choice. On the other hand, if they do not have much experience playing or very many credits to their name, it may be best to stay away. Keep this stuff in mind when shopping for a piano tutorial and you’ll come out on top when it comes down to it.
