Getting Started with Piano? Read This First!
While some children have successfully touched their targeted career level while some of them haven’t reached to that point as for them the piano lessons were only torture that caused them to stop from piano lessons for the whole life.
You have taken the Piano classes at your young age. Now you want to start it again but a lot of question are taking place in your way. Where to start piano lessons? How to be on the right track to get in touch with Piano classes, etc.
We have a few suggestions for you to handle the how what and where questions.
Always Rely on a Human Teacher
Piano lessons from a human being are the most common way. You can get the tutor at home or you will go to the studio for learning the piano; it depends on the arrangement you have already done. The teacher will deliver all his knowledge that s/he has.
Learning piano from a teacher or human being is better as he/she understands your concerns, inhibitions, and nature. A piano teacher can change himself according to the situations; can vary his usual style of teaching, can increase the duration of class according to the situations, etc. But the only drawback when leaning from a teacher is you will learn also his mistakes and you will be limited to his knowledge only.
Turn to the Web
Along with learning from a teacher, you must have to rely on the online classes as well. You will learn the other tactics used while playing a piano. Depends on your research, if you found good piano lessons, then you can work with your own style and pace.
But don’t always rely on online lessons because you cannot get every time that you need or want to learn. The other problem is there is no one who can correct all the mistakes that you might do while playing piano.
Buy a Piano
When learning piano lessons, the most important thing is to arrange or buy a piano at your home where you can practice whatever you learn; because learning without enough practice is useless. When buying a piano, always buy from the trusted place who can also give you the warranty.

Dubai: Before the coming of Engy El Shazly, hijab and Ballet were two diverse concepts.
She became the first hijabi Arab woman to perform the ballet dance on stage. She believes that wearing hijab doesn’t restrict you from all the normal things of your life; all these things should be synchronized with each other.
To make my appearance same as like other hijabi women I am wearing a black scarf and full-length sleeve. She further elaborated that she wants to prove that she is a good ballet dancer and at the same time she is committed to her hijab.
Engy said at the event ‘What She Said’ which was hosted by the W hotel, that the biggest challenge she faced while in ballet dance was the balancing in the pointe shoes; in fact, it was the biggest barrier she ever faced while learning ballet dance.
She said “in the starting two months I was unable to stand without a support in pointe shoes and every day I used to do training in home as well. After passing two months, I was able to start the primary movements and was very glad to see my ballet learning graph going up.”.
She said that the biggest criticism that she faced from people was not related to her hijab at all; it was only related to her age as she started learning ballet dance at the age of 27.
“Everyone suggested that you don’t have to start ballet in this age; you had to start at 3 or 4. However, her life changed when she started some ballet classes in Dubai. “I just called a ballet center in Dubai and I asked that my age is 27, I wear hijab and I want to start ballet dance. I was expecting they will tell me that you don’t have to start at this age but they told you can join and we have ballet classes for adults as well. I was very happy to hear and I am doing something now that I really love”.
As per Engy she was thinking that she is old and she has a hijab that’s why she will not able to go to the stage but it was a very pleasant movement for her when her teacher told her that she will dance in the Russian Cultural Centre as she is enough competent to perform on stage.
After that she didn’t look back and gave a performance on stage that gave her a confidence and made her career. She further discussed that she wants to motivate other girls like her as well and because of her many other girls have been inspired already and the summary of her discussion was that you can join ballet center at any age.
