Smart Way To Start Learning How To Play The Piano
Are you eager to learn the keyboard and play captivating melodies? Well, it is time to have the keyboard lessons. There are a few factors you need to put in mind before setting out to learn it.
Begin by Mastering The Keyboard Basics
Mastering anything begins with grasping its basics and the keyboard is no different. Keyboard basics are the stepping stone to the more complex world of playing the piano.
If possible, ask your teacher to rearrange the lessons to enable you to begin with the basics. A friendly teacher would be supportive because you need a person whom you can easily connect with to grasp the keyboard essentials.
Acquire a Good Keyboard
You want to learn from the best using the best equipment. Consult your teacher on the best keyboard for learners. Stroll to the store with the advice given and buy the finest keyboard for learners.
Virtual Classes Should Be a No!
Since you are a beginner, seek to learn keyboard skills from “physical” teacher. You should shun online tutorials, videos, and theoretical knowledge unless you are in need of supplementing what the teacher has already taught you. It is not a good practice to entirely rely on online sources.
Practice All the Time
It is always said to practice makes perfect.
Frequent practices, say daily practices, helps are valuable in two ways: they help you learn to feel the keyboard keys under your fingers and lets you get accustomed to the placement of the keys on the keyboard. Nevertheless, daily practice is essential in improving your general keyboard skills.
On the same note, do not neglect your keyboard. Proper maintenance prolongs the life of the keyboard and avoids costly repairs.
How To Practice Well
Learning to play the keyboard is the hardest. That is why you start with the basics before proceeding to intricate phases.
Play the keyboard with both hands
Using one hand to play the keyboard can feel comfortable, but it is an off-putting practice. It is also unprofessional.
For the music to flow smoothly, all your two hands must be in action. Therefore, let this practice stick with you from the start.
Learn both the music and the song
Do not ignore the lyrics, find some time and add them in the head though it is not necessary to grasp every piece of the involved song. But if you do not want to stumble on the way, mastering all the pieces becomes a necessity. One of the perks with mastering all the pieces is that you will be able to break the tune into easily manageable parts. To enhance your pace of progress, always do thorough preparation.
Take Time and Explore the Keyboard
Once you have mastered your keyboard, embark on familiarising yourself with the tool of the trade. Find out the prospects of your keyboard and all it is capable of doing.
Learn the layout of the keyboard and identify the notes. This essential in helping you distinguish different scales and notes when playing.
The black and white keys help the user to distinguish, modified and natural notes. The black keys on the left produce the flat note, while those on right produce sharp notes.
While these keys are hard to master in the beginning, regular practice eventually eases the hardship.
