Whether you consider yourself to be advanced, intermediate or a total beginner when it comes to playing the piano there is always room for improvement. 

Like with most things in life, there is no escaping hard work and practice and Piano is certainly no exception to the rule. Practice is essential in order to nail down important factors such as fluidity, timing, finger placement and most importantly ensuring that you don’t mess up during the trickier part of the song!

The piano is something that takes thousands of hours to master and while there might not be many shortcuts, there are certain things that both musicians and students can do to shorten the process and avoid wasting hours to trial and error.

Working alongside a singing tutor can be extremely beneficial as they can walk you through an array of exercises that you can then implement within your practice in order to improve on your weaknesses.

This can be quite the time-saver, tutors have often worked with hundreds of past students and can provide best practice piano techniques so that you can save yourself the time finding out for yourself.

So instead of practising your favourite songs over and over, there are more practical exercises that you can employ within your preparations to help strengthen your ability. 

A tutor will be able to assess you on your starting ability, target areas of weakness for you to work on and guide you through the process. You’ll be in grade eight in no time!
