Piano Lessons in DFW 

Piano is one of the best musical instruments to start with because it's a great jumping off point to study any other instrument. 

At Creative Soul School of Music in Dallas-Fort Worth, we teach our piano students to read notes in the Treble and Bass Clefs, while also learning improvisation and songwriting. We focus on fundamentals of good piano playing while introducing modern or popular music that students want to learn or are currently listening to. This approach keeps students excited and earns them the recognition from their peers. 

The piano is physically easy to play right out of the gate, making it much quicker to learn than any other instrument. That is great for those who need immediate satisfaction, and it reinforces the desire to play more often. 

The piano or keyboard are also great for understanding how music works; visually, the piano gives patterns that help students see music in a linear way. This means that kids and adults will see relationships and patterns much easier than any other instrument. It uses both hands, which develops the left-hand-brain communication.

How Our Piano Lessons Work

(fav) Meredith and girl on piano turquoise

Beginnners in Our Piano Lessons Learn: 

  • Sight-reading
  • Theory
  • Chords
  • Transposition
  • Improvisation

 

Intermediate & Advanced Students in Our Piano Lessons Learn:

  • To play in our band program
  • Move up through our next level of skills
  • Songwriting and composition techniques as they advance

 

Not only that, but all of our piano students learn how to have healthy piano practice. In the past, there was a "no pain, no gain" philosophy regarding piano technique. But thanks to physical medicine and the study of ergonomics, that philosophy is no longer valid with piano technique. 

Creative Soul School of Music instructors have been trained to use a contemporary technique that facilitates good development while playing all styles of music on piano. 

Performing What You Learn from Your Piano Lessons

Being able to perform is a big part of sharing a special skill that students have developed. It takes practice, and we want to reward and recognize our students. We have free, twice-a-year recitals for all of our students at such acclaimed venues like the McDavid Studio at Bass Hall & The Palace and various other performance opportunities for our group class students at venues like the Wood Shed Smoke House on the river, Central Market and TV-Famous Chef Pointe for the students to jump into.

Types of Pianos to Purchase for Your Piano Lessons

The question we hear a lot from our new parents and students is whether they should purchase an acoustic piano or keyboard. 

Keyboards vs. Acoustic Pianos

Historically, acoustic pianos have been the instrument of choice for most lessons. But recent technology has led to digital pianos that have sampled sound from the world's finest concert grand pianos. These keyboards are fun and provide an opportunity for an intense and special learning experience, where students can use many voices built into these electronic keyboards, making them into any instrumnet, band or orchestra. Some of these instruments, they have never even heard of. 

At Creative Soul School of Music, we have both so that our students have the opportunity to play a real acoustic piano and experience the keyboard technology so they don't miss out on the fun! 

If you are new to piano lessons or are looking for something different, check out these pianos (keyboards) you can buy online or find a piano shop near you.

Why Do Our Children Quit Piano Lessons?

Have you ever heard someone say, “I used to take piano lessons as a child, and I wish my parents would have never let me quit”? This has become a common mantra that I hear often, not only as a music instructor, but as an individual.

There is a growing (and convincing) body of research that indicates a “window of opportunity” from birth to age nine for developing a musical sensibility within children. During this time, the mental structures and mechanisms associated with processing and understanding music are in the prime stages of development, making it of utmost importance to expose children in this age range to music.

Do You Think Your Child Is Ready for Music?

I have been teaching young children music for around 15 years now, and I had to ask myself the same question recently, “When is my child ready for music lessons?” I knew because of research and experience teaching, but when I saw my own child demonstrate similar characteristics, I knew what I told our parents all these years was actually true.
