Are you looking for piano lessons in Den Haag? On this page Luca Ridolfo explains what he thinks is important when you want to start with piano lessons. Adults and children are both welcome!
How many times did you want to start playing the piano?
I’m pretty sure you went all through these steps:
…you haven’t taken any decision so far as. They all seem great choices, but you don’t know which is the best one FOR YOU!
In this page you’ll read how you can choose the right piano teacher and you’ll learn what Studio MusicalMente can offer you.
First, you have to understand what you’re looking for in your piano lessons, following these 5 points. They will get you a clearer idea about who you are so that you can be able to present yourself in a clear way to your new piano teacher. This will permit you to save time.
It is definitely still possible to start piano lessons as an adult. It doesn’t even need to be a disadvantage. How many children stop their music lessons, because they don’t have the patience for it? As an adult, your attention span is better than as a child.
Studio MusicalMente is the first music school for adults in Den Haag. We want to prove that it’s possible to start playing the piano as an adult and even becoming a good pianist. For doing so, you need a clear study routine that can take into account your busy life. That’s why our students use the MusicalMente Agenda to keep track of what you have to do at home and how much minutes will it takes. In this way, you’ll progress steadily within your time schedule.
Many people and many teachers offer you having piano lessons at home. But… is it really efficient? In fact, you’ll probably know that each piano is different. Being able to play on a different piano is what will make a difference in the long run. In Studio MusicalMente you’ll have the opportunity to play on another piano different than yours you have at home. We keep it regulated in a way that it can be as honest as possible, making you able to develop your artistic independence.
Classical, pop, rock, jazz, gospel… there’re so many musical genres you can play with the piano. Still, every piano teacher has his strong genre. Understanding what you want really helps you to get a better teacher for you.
Luca Ridolfo, the piano teacher in Studio MusicalMente, regularly plays in Classical, pop and jazz gigs with past experience in Rock and Gospel music. He considers himself a pianist but had a lot of experience as a keyboardist.
Whatever your level is, it is important to define it with your future teacher. In particular, it’s essential to know if you have any past experience in playing the piano, with a teacher for example, or you’re starting entirely from zero.
Do you know how to read notes? Do you know the notes on the piano? If you don’t, don’t worry!
In Studio MusicalMente we have a proprietary method for learning how to read notes, student-proof, whatever their age is. It takes only 5 minutes a week.
Sometimes it’s interesting to see what a teacher can offer you. Does he/she have more material to watch and to read? In this way, you can understand their ideas and concepts they can teach you.
Luca Ridolfo is continuously creating new content for his students for giving them the best piano learning experience. He’s the author of the ebook “What Teachers never told you about starting piano lessons”, “Improve at the piano” and the coming one “Adventures of an adult piano beginner”. He’s also created for Studio MusicalMente the video series “6 points for improving your piano playing”. He created the MusicalMente “Reading Notes” reading method, allowing students to fasten their sight-reading.
Through the years, I developed a personal approach to teaching which involves you in both creatively and technically at the piano. My aim is to develop your musical sense. In this way, the “boring” stuff is taken to a new level, transforming the technical exercise into a musical one. This is where some teachers fail, they prescribe books full of exercises with no artistic sense. If music would be just a technical matter, why then is music still made by humans and not by robots?
I think that if a teacher asks something to their students, it’s because he or she believes that the student can do what the teacher is saying.

I remember the instructions I got in my early piano lessons:
I did it of course, but I still didn’t have any clue of the why I should do all those things. In my head, I had more than one question mark and I was seriously committed to finding the reason why I had to change things. Because in the end the reason is the core of the problem. Sometimes I had the sensation teachers just provided me with shortcuts and not the full explanations I needed to find my own way of playing the piano.
Fortunately afterwards I met some great teachers who were willing to transmit their knowledge to me. For me, the successful teacher it’s the one that gives students ways to understand the problems they’re facing and being able to find solutions independently and creatively. This is what I want to transmit to you, so you won’t be left with question marks.
