Piano Lessons Knoxville are now available at Bill Jones Music Knoxville and Bill Jones Music Chattanooga, and if you have always wanted to continue those lessons that you started and abandoned when you were a teenager, there has never been a better time.
Although relearning the piano can be frustrating, regardless of your age, it’s important not to become discouraged.
As you age, your strength, skill, and dexterity can diminish after several years of no practice, but as long as you are diligent and patient, you can easily return to your previous playing form and even beyond.
If that old piano is giving up the ghost with wood damage, stuck keys and more, the repairs could cost much more than a brand new piano. If that is the case, don’t give up on enrolling in the Bill Jones Music School as the showroom has new and used pianos from the best brands in the world including Yamaha, Hallet Davis and more. Don’t feel like buying a new piano? No problem as sometimes Bill Jones Music in Knoxville has pianos that you can rent if you enroll in Piano Lessons Knoxville in the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee.
Start Off Slow
It may be tempting to jump on the keys and practice for hours like you did when you were 10 or 11 years old, but keep your enthusiasm to a minimum until you are ready to practice again for hours on end as your body and hands need time to catch up. When you start slowly, you can build strength while remembering previous skills in order to regain flexibility.
Short Practice Sessions
Committing to 20 minutes each day will help you maintain and restore your finger and brain connection. When you feel up to it, increase your time and difficulty with your exercises and your pieces. Bill Jones Music in Knoxville recommends that you limit your sessions by setting a timer. Once the timer goes off, stop and stretch giving your hands a massage.
Stretch and Warm Up
Arpeggios and scales are the best way to warm up your sluggish fingers. Start slow and allow yourself the time to remember finger progressions along with key signatures. Over time, you can speed things up while adding interesting octaves and staccatos.
Posture has become horrible with people slumping over their computers. Poor posture on the piano will put a strain on your wrists while causing fatigue. Bad posture can even cause pain.
