First and foremost, both individuals must have a passion for piano playing. Generating powerful musical lessons require both parties to have passion and dedication towards piano playing.

Students should walk away from lessons feeling excited to return to their next lesson. In order to achieve this, teachers must ask students specific questions to understand their needs and desires.

Teachers are looking for students who are willing to learn and cooperate, while students are seeking teachers who are exciting and will teach them songs that they love to play. Each lesson must be moulded to student’s needs and expectations.

It can be very difficult for teachers to understand these requirements, forcing them to ask specific questions to find a balance between student and teacher. A few key questions to ask students are the following:

Why do you want to take piano lessons?

What are your hobbies and what is your background?

Do you have any particular goals or interests?

Have you played any other musical instruments in the past?

Are you willing to work on challenges?
