Prime factors for success

One of the prime factors for successfully learning to play the piano for a young child, and, indeed, for a pupil belonging to any age-group, is to possess a "strong desire to learn". Without this element within the student, the tutor's job will be extremely difficult and maybe well-nigh impossible.

I have also found that, in my own experience, if one or both of the child's parents or grandparents can play the piano, the child is often influenced in a very positive way to try and emulate the skill of the parent(s) and usually receives greater encouragement at home to "practise regularly in between lessons", another prime factor of ultimate importance.

The need to relate the written score to the correct, corresponding musical notes on the piano keyboard is a requirement which can present difficulties for both the student and the tutor but perseverance will pay off in the end. It is much more preferable to adhere to this stage until mastery is complete before moving on.

Playing the piano gives many years of pleasure and enjoyment. The skill is certainly worth the effort!
