Viktoriya Rossini Peneva, head of music at Blackheath Music Academy in London, ha strong views about people who think they can learn to play from an app.
She has eight reasons why you really need a teacher.
Here’s one of them:
With digital resources you are always pushed to ‘go to the next level’, but music is not only about correct notes and playing with no mistakes. In other words, it is not a computer game, it is an art, a philosophy, a state of mind! What is really behind those notes? Can digital apps teach you that? Be careful, if you do a mistake digital apps, most of the times, aren’t teaching you the ‘why’ you do the mistake (limits) or how you can avoid it next time (strength). You need a real music teacher for that!
And here are the rest.
