"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music [...] I get most joy in life out of my [Piano] ."

Albert Einstein, 1929

Piano Lessons / Teaching Philosophy

Anyone can learn how to play the piano, and anyone learning it will quickly experience its positive effects on concentration, stress relief, boosting self-esteem, the impact on cognitive development, and the tuning of fine motor skills. Each person is unique, with their own learning pace and a teaching approach tailored to this person is required in order to be able to achieve a successful and enjoyable learning experience. If you do not focus primarily on the mistakes made while playing, but rather on the successes from practice, this promotes motivation and the joy of making music and is rewarded with happy hormones and increased vitality of the brain. This philosophy is implemented at the Natalia Heinl piano school with a high level of musicological know-how and a great deal of passion.

Individual Support

Music is an artistic expression of human existence and a language of its own. This evokes reactions in the musician as well as in the listener. Playing the piano, in its polyphony, particularly stimulates creativity. Every pianist is an individual with their own perception and interpretation of a musical work based on the reflection of the composer's work. Individual support requires accurate observation by the teacher and constant self-reflection and self-discipline on the part of the learner. The musician learns to recognise his own progress and not to compare himself with others. For this it is necessary to adapt the teaching methodology to the respective learning pace and the musical memory of the student.


Conscious learning

Mozart is considered the prototype of the child prodigy, the “born” musician – a genius. The same applies to Albert Einstein as a physicist. However, Professor K. Anders Ericsson, the international authority in the field of expertise research, says: Talent is completely overestimated. On closer inspection, it becomes clear that Mozart and Einstein have worked hard to develop their special abilities through years of practice and learning. Ericsson, as the founder of the method of conscious learning, assumes that you can continuously improve your performance with targeted practice and conscious learning. This message is encouraging: We are not held hostage to an antiquated notion of innate talent, but master of our own potential. There is no natural talent that enables you to accomplish something out of the ordinary. With motivation and a willingness to learn, we can create and develop it ourselves - regardless of whether we want to become a concert pianist or just want to play the piano well enough that we enjoy it by ourselves.

About Natalia Heinl

Certified piano teacher & concertmaster

Born in Ukraine, I studied piano and music education at the Music Academy in Lutsk and at the Pedagogical University in Rivne and successfully completed my studies with the diplomas "Piano Pedagogue and Concertmaster" and "Music Pedagogue". Since the age of 20 I have been teaching piano to students of all age groups. I have been working as a freelance piano teacher in Bad Zwischenahn/Lower Saxony for many years and currently teach students between the ages of 5 and over 80 with great joy and great success. I look forward to passing on my knowledge and to convincing many more people of the magic of playing the piano.
