“Should I take classical or pop piano lessons?”
One of the most common questions from adults interested in music lessons is, “Should I take classical or pop piano lessons?” This question is important for many reasons, first because as a student you need to be motivated to practice. Secondly, having a clear goal in your piano lessons will help you become closer to achievement! In conclusion, it’s good to consider why you are taking lessons before you commit to piano lessons.
Choose a role model who inspires you.
Before you ask, “Should I take classical or pop piano lessons?”, you can first find a performer who inspires you. If you can find a person who plays piano that inspires you, often this can help you decide your goal in piano lessons. Regardless of who inspires you, visualizing yourself as being able to accomplish the same piano level as that person has led to higher levels of achievements.
We always recommend that our students envision their goal, because that can help them achieve what ever they put their mind to.
