3 Tips to Get the Most Out of Music Lessons
December 9, 2022
Beginning piano, singing, or any other music lesson is one of the most exciting journeys you can begin. Learning to play, or leaning to play better, is fun, fulfilling, and even offers more substantial benefits like stimulating our minds and even helping to relax our bodies and promote good health.
Now, we are not saying that music is a cure-all or secret to life’s happiness but… almost. And if you are starting out or taking your skills in a new direction with lessons, you can learn more and learn faster. Here are a few tips and habits to help you get the most out of your music lessons.
1. Pick the Right Instructor
Your music teacher will have an enormous influence on how you learn so it is a good idea to make sure you are working with someone who has some experience in the type of music you are interested in learning. And it also helps if they’re well-organized, use the lesson time well, give you assignments and honest feedback, and provide positive encouragement.
2. Set Goals
It is hard to achieve something without knowing what it is that you want to achieve — that is why defining goals can be so empowering. They do away with the aimless wandering and give us a specific outcome that we can envision and work toward. Memorizing a song, increasing your range, and learning chords can all be done with a goal-oriented approach.
3. Practice, Practice, Practice
Even if you do not want to get to Carnegie Hall, consistent practice is essential to learn and progress with your music ability. If you are learning an instrument, shoot for a half hour a day, five days a week. Singing is the same but dial it back if you feel your voice getting strained. Your music instructor should also provide you with daily lessons and exercises so that you develop well-rounded skills.
