Why Headphones Can Help You Be a Better Piano Player

Thinking of investing in a new piano? Ensure you select one that accepts headphones. Headphones can actually help you be a better piano player. Here’s why. 

More practice – one of the greatest challenges of practicing is finding the time and place to do so. In a busy household, you may have to wait until some are through with homework, or another is off a conference call. With headphones, you’re the only one who will hear your music. That means you can get more practice at a time that’s convenient for you. 

Hear a fuller range of tonal quality – have you ever noticed you hear music differently when it’s on a car radio compared to when your headphones are in place? The same works when you’re playing the piano. You’ll hear the little nuances that make up a song while you’re playing it. 

You’ll be less distracted and get more out of practice time – what makes a better piano player is higher quality practice sessions. With headphones on, you’re less likely to be distracted from outside noise, or conversations of the people around you. You’ll pay more attention to what you’re doing with your music. 

Use the piano anywhere – headphones are now available on a variety of instruments, from acoustic to digital pianos. By being able to plugin headphones, you can place your piano anywhere and listen to the music you create. 

Alone or together – headphones aren’t just for individual practice. They can be used to help refine what you play. Many classrooms now manage more refined training by having each student wear headphones to help create a unique learning experience. It allows students to be more focused on their own training, while learning on a larger platform. 

If you grew up with an older acoustic piano and never learned the benefits of having headphones as an option, come in today and see what they can do for you or your child’s piano playing ability.
