| Most of us like to use what we learn right away. So why is it that most piano teachers tell you you can't really play music until you learn 2 years of theory or more? What hogwash!|
If I had to wait that long before I could launch into my own creations I would go nuts.
Even art schools encourage creativity among their students. Certainly, a watercolor instructor would never expect her students to wait 2 years before creating a painting.
The same thing applies to writers. When someone wants to learn how to write a short-story, the art and craft of storytelling is taught, sure. But does a writing instructor really expect his students to wait 2 years before plunging into the writing act?
Do you see where I'm going here? Music, especially classical music studies have been stifling for way too long. Why can't music students enjoy the same level of creative freedom as visual artists or writers?
I've asked myself these questions and then tried to create piano lessons where a complete beginner could create his or her own music right away. And it worked! I now have students all over the world who tell me that this is the best method they have ever used to play piano with.
Please don't spend years learning theory you probably will never use anyway. And don't spend too much time with a piano teacher who really doesn't want you to play piano.
