In today’s lesson, I will be teaching you about the factors that determine how long it will take you to learn piano. Whether you are self taught beginner using online resources or taking lessons from a teacher, these factors are something you want to be aware of when learning piano. This is probably the most useful for adults who struggle with time constraint issues. Realistically, it can take months to get the groundwork laid to learning piano, and take years or even a lifetime to master.

This course is for adult beginners who’d like to learn the fundamentals of sight-reading piano music by mastering and understanding rhythmic notation. I designed this course around the rhythmic mastery. You progress through steps that slowly increase in difficulty and help you understand what is happening rhythmically in a piece of music. I try to keep things fun and I even wrote an original piece of music for you to play as you progress through the course.

The 4 keys to becoming a successful guitar teacher are learning what to do to build your teaching business, how to teach effectively, how to implement what you know and which mistakes you must avoid.
Why You Must Learn What To Do To Build Your Teaching Business
You eventually run out of students, lose money and have to return to working a normal full-time job when you do not learn how to build your guitar teaching business.
Building a guitar teaching business isn’t just about the act of getting more students, it’s also about: effectively advertising, marketing, building a system for referrals, keeping your students for a long time, improving your teaching methods to get better results and many other things.
The best way to understand how to improve in these areas is to work together with a certified guitar teacher trainer who has already helped many others grow successful guitar teaching businesses.
Why You Must Learn What To Do To Teach Effectively
Teaching guitar more effectively gets better results for your students, motivates them to keep taking lessons for longer and transforms their musical lives much faster. It’s an amazing feeling when you are able to do this for people. In addition to keeping them coming back for more guitar lessons, it makes them want to take lessons with you for years at a time and builds a positive reputation for you in your local area as the number one teacher to work with.
Why You Must Implement What You Know
This refers to implementing changes in your guitar teaching business for the sake of long-term growth. Here is an example: you may need to make a change to the way you market yourself to potential students in order to more effectively convert them to paying students. Some guitar teachers procrastinate at this point and never implement the information they learn in order to grow. Don’t be like them. Implement what you know and become more successful in a very short amount of time.
Why You Must Know Which Mistakes To Avoid
There are many common guitar teaching mistakes you are going to have to avoid to save yourself tons of wasted time, wasted money and tons of frustration.
Want to learn the biggest mistakes to avoid in order to grow a massively successful guitar teaching business? Learn them by finding and working together with a guitar teacher trainer.

This teaches you a lot quickly, and you’ll learn how to actually understand everything and be able to play yourself, much faster than with traditional piano lessons.

I’ll show you how THEY work out songs, learn chords fast, play songs quickly, and how you can do the same thing and impress your friends by becoming an “Instant Piano Genius”. 🙂

This first video is less playing and *more talking* – unlike the other 9 videos in which I play much more – but is required viewing so that you may feel my style, get an idea of the philosophy and choose if you wish to continue; of course, I hope you will.

Understand the correct channel of energy: Mind – Body – Piano. It is certainly not the piano which plays the fingers which tell the mind what to think. Across my channel, discover philosophies such as the Internal Piano, Internal Jukebox, the Mind Triangle, your Musical Personality and the idea of becoming an observer to your hands. All these things are so very important to Your natural progress before you even sit at the piano. Thus, my channel focuses heavily on the mind and will provide much inspiration for you both at and way from the piano. Consider my blog a side-dish to the videos.

New piano? New plan? Learning the piano is not difficult and over 10 videos, I am going to prove this. In each video, using my philosophical teaching approach combined with my motivating and encouraging style, you are going to become whatever being a great pianist means to You.
What you must acknowledge, however, is that 10 videos does not mean it takes 10 hours, or 10 days, even 10 weeks! It will take as long as it takes for you to consider that you have reached an acceptable level; this may involve going to take exams, making recordings of pieces or your own compositions and getting feedback, or visiting a real-life teacher for refinement. Please bear this in mind during the 10 video course.
