Flexible scheduling for a busy life

Adult students often have busy schedules with work, family, and other commitments. Look for teachers that offer flexibility in scheduling to accommodate your availability.

The lessons you want

Look for lessons that are specific to your musical preferences or goals. Find a teacher that tailors lessons to your interests, whether classical, jazz, pop or any other genre, that addresses your skill level and learning pace.

step three:

A patient and supportive teacher

Search for instructors who are patient, understanding, and supportive. Learning a musical instrument can be challenging, and having an encouraging teacher helps build confidence and motivation.

step four:

The experiences of other students

Hear what other students say about the teacher to assess if this may be the right teacher for your music adventure.

step five:

Practical application

Many adult students appreciate lessons that include practical applications of music theory and piano technique. You may want to learn how to play your favourite songs, improvise, or understand the music theory underpinning the music you enjoy.

step six:

Goal-oriented approach

Many adult learners are goal-oriented. You may prefer lessons structured around specific objectives, allowing you to see measurable progress over time. Setting and achieving musical milestones can be highly motivating. You may even wish to embark on the certificate program of The Royal Conservatory of Music.

step seven:

Technological integration

Look for teachers who incorporate technology into lessons, such as online resources, interactive apps, or virtual practice tools; these can bring a modern and efficient approach to learning online.

step eight:

Understanding the fundamentals

You may want to play your favourite songs quickly but also appreciate a solid foundation in music theory and technique. Search for a teacher who provides a good balance between enjoyable repertoire and fundamental skills.

step nine:

Social interaction

As an adult student, you may seek an opportunity to learn from a teacher you connect with and can share your interest in music. This student-teacher relationship is the foundation of any great learning experience.

step ten:

Feedback and progress evaluation

You may appreciate constructive feedback from your piano teacher. Regular progress evaluations help you understand your strengths and areas for improvement, fostering a sense of achievement. You may even be interested in the certificate exams of The Royal Conservatory of Music, a fun way to keep a record of your learning achievements.

step eleven:

Stress-free learning environment

Look for a teacher who creates a relaxed and stress-free learning environment, which is crucial for adult learners. Lessons that are enjoyable, low-pressure, and focus on the joy of making music can enhance the learning experience.
