step one:

Flexible learning options

Look for a teacher with flexible scheduling and learning options that accommodate your lifestyle and availability. Online lessons provide easy access to a quality piano education right from the comfort of your home, and setting up for online lessons is easy.

step two:

Patience and understanding

Find a patient and understanding teacher, especially if this is your first experience learning the piano or returning to it after a long hiatus. A supportive and encouraging approach helps build confidence.

step three:

Tailored curriculum

Seek a piano teacher who can tailor a curriculum to your interests and goals. Individualized lessons might include learning specific genres of music, playing favourite songs, or focusing on particular aspects of piano playing. You deserve lessons designed for you. Some of my senior students even take The Royal Conservatory of Music Exams to get their music certificates.

step four:

Listen to the experience of others

The experience that other students have with a teacher is essential information you can use to help inform your own decision.

I am truly grateful to my wonderful students and their parents for their kind words about my role as a piano teacher. Your support and appreciation mean the world to me, and it is a joy to witness the positive impact of our musical adventures together. Thank you for your encouragement and trust in my teaching.

step five:

Adaptability to health needs

Health considerations are essential for many seniors taking lessons. Look for a teacher who is adaptable to physical limitations and can adjust lesson plans and scheduling to accommodate health challenges or Dr. Appointments that you may need.

step six:

Technology integration

While some seniors are comfortable with technology, some may feel uncomfortable with it. Technology usually has a bark worse than its bite, and many find taking online lessons easy and convenient after trying it. The benefits of online lessons can enhance the learning experience and provide additional support.

step seven:

Social interaction

Many seniors look to lessons for a fun break in the day to pursue their passion for music, and looking for a fun teacher with whom they can share that passion is essential.

step eight:

Cognitive benefits

Many seniors know the cognitive benefits of learning and playing music. Seek a teacher who can design lessons to stimulate memory, concentration, and overall mental function. Learning the piano is not only fun but has its benefits.

step nine:

Stress-free environment

Creating a stress-free and relaxed learning environment is essential. Look for a teacher who can provide an atmosphere of enjoyment and personal fulfillment rather than rigid achievement of goals.

step ten:

Affordability and value

Cost is a consideration for learners of any age. Many appreciate affordable quality lessons with a qualified teacher. Look for the opportunity to learn without feeling financial strain.

step eleven:

Encouragement and emotional support

Positive reinforcement and emotional support are crucial. Look for a teacher you find fun, motivating, encouraging and supportive to embark on your musical journey with.
