The Piano Lesson Dilemma
Why do so many people fail at learning to play the piano? Is it that traditional pianos and traditional piano lessons are musically boring and tedious? Maybe not every student has talent? Is it that piano lessons are only taught once a week for 30 minutes? Capital Music Center's business model is built around solutions to this problem:
Try an Interactive Learning Piano. Roland Pianos include Interactive Music Tutoring Technology that help you practice and learn to play the piano. The most popular model is the Roland HPi-6F since it is designed specifically for piano students. The Roland HP-503 is a scaled down version that includes basic tutoring technology, while the Roland HPi-50 is the ultimate piano designed for teachers and advancing students.
- Rent a digital piano. You can rent-to-purchase a Roland Digital Piano for as low as $39 per month. Don't waste money on an old worn out piano that needs lots of work and tuning or an insufficient cheap keyboard that doesn't have enough keys or even feel like a piano. Students need good equipment from lesson number one. This rental plan is the least expensive route to go until you can make sure the student is going to stick with it.
- Try the Roland Music Tutor. It helps any piano student of any level practice between lessons. The Roland Music Tutor works with any acoustic piano or digital piano or keyboard. Most Roland Pianos have the Music Tutor built in to them. You can use the Music Tutor with any piano teacher, any style of music, any piano method, and any level of musicianship. We sell and even rent the Music Tutor to try it out before you buy it.
- Try a better method. Teachers that utilize modern piano methods and incorporate technology aids will help the student practice and learn the six days and twenty three and a half hours a week between lessons. Capital Music Center has one of the best piano lesson programs in the Austin area. We can also refer you to a piano teacher that subscribes to these beliefs. If possible, start your child in a group class to make learning more fun. Most kids would quit band if they had to take a year of private lessons before they could be in the band. If private lessons are the only choice, then at least the Roland Music Tutor or a Roland Interactive Learning Piano gives some of the benefits of playing along with others.
