There are endless possibilities when it comes to the piano. The piano is a part of all types of music. A few of the most popular styles include classical, jazz and rhythm and blues.
Some pianists will train in multiple genres. This allows them to diversify their skills and potentially create a personal hybrid style. Others are so profoundly drawn to a specific style that they will specialize in it.
Rhythm, pitch, note duration and tempo are just a few of the things a pianist must concentrate on when playing. Learning to play the piano will drastically sharpen one’s ability to focus and multi-task. It will also instill a strong sense of discipline.
Playing the piano is not easy. Hard work and practice are necessary for success. A pianist will also develop excellent time management skills. Dedicating time to practice is a fundamental part of the learning process.
Pianists tend to develop high emotional intelligence. Playing the piano strengthens your listening skills, which are important when interacting with others. Humans express emotions through the tone of their voice, speed of speech and melody of speaking. Those who play an instrument are more attuned to these aspects and therefore become far more perceptive.
These highly valuable skills will also benefit pianists in their life outside the piano. They apply to one’s education, career and personal relationships. Playing the piano truly offers so much more than the ability to play music. Allegro is a top Ottawa piano school, so start your journey today.

How long does it take to learn piano?
There is no set answer to how long it takes to learn an instrument. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons fun, rewarding, and engaging!
What if I don't have a piano or keyboard at home?
In order for you to get started right away with lessons it is important to have an instrument to practice on.
If you don't already have a piano in your home, and are new to lessons, we recommend that you start with an electric keyboard. There are many options out there for keyboards, with a wide range of models and prices. You do not necessarily need a high-end keyboard to start.
What can I expect at my first lesson?
In your first lesson your teacher will take the time to get to know you and identify your goals and interests. They will make recommendations on what learning materials you will need for your lessons and what level you should start at depending on your experience. Beginner students can expect to be able to play something on their instrument before they leave their first class!
