As a classically trained professional pianist with 30 years of experience, I am on a mission to dispel myths and open doors for those interested in learning classical music. Many people think that classical music is too difficult to learn, but the truth is – it’s not. Musical expression is 95% science and only 5% inspiration or talent. With a good teacher, anyone can make the jump from listener to learner.Source: lvlmusicacademy.com
Can classical music be self taught?
The goal is to teach you the fundamentals of classical piano in a fun and practical way, so that you can be a better and more creative musician. Along the way, you will find yourself surrounded by an incredible world that opens up and enhances your life in unexpected ways.
Music is the universal language of humanity and connects us to people from all walks of life. It can help you to express your emotions, elicit the same feelings from others, and forge connections across time and space.
In addition, many studies have shown that studying and playing music in general has cognitive benefits. These benefits include improved reasoning, language and mathematics skills. Music education also helps develop “soft” skills such as teamwork, problem-solving and creativity. These benefits are especially pronounced for those who study a musical instrument like the piano. In addition, the music of the past, especially classical music, offers a window into our cultural heritage and history.
