Piano Lessons in Katy TX
As The Conservatory of Music in Katy, most people believe we only teach the classical literature of the piano. We’re happy to report that this is not true! Although our instructors understand the importance of studying classical piano music, they also enjoy teaching their assigned students other musical genres such as pop, jazz, rock! Simply put, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. Our piano teachers are very friendly and enjoy sharing their love of the piano with you!
Do You Need a Real Piano?
Now, do you need to have a real, acoustic piano to have lessons with us? No, not really. Of course, the ideal would be to have an acoustic piano at home before starting lessons, but if you don’t have a real piano, you can absolutely start lessons with our piano teachers by using an electric keyboard initially. We recommend a keyboard that has regular sized keys and a touch sensitive response. A touch sensitive keyboard means that the harder you press a key, the louder it will play…consequently, the lighter you press a key, the softer it will play. If possible, a keyboard with 88 keys (same like a real piano) is ideal, however, a keyboard with 64 or 76 keys can still work, although it will present minor challenges as the student progresses.
So, in summary, to have the best success in piano lessons with us, look for the following things in a keyboard:
1. 88 keys is preferable
2. Sustain Pedal (when you continue to hold it down, you continue to hear the sound)
3. Touch sensitive keys (when you press harder, it sounds louder; when you press lightly, it sounds quieter)
