Learn to Play the Piano
When you learn to play the piano, you will encounter a lot of difficulties, mistakes and errors which may develop into awkward habits. Challenges are more on mental than on the physical aspect during piano training. You might just end up exhausted mentally after practices. I’m sure you can relate to that if you have tried to learn to play the piano. It is never easy but very rewarding.
You don’t want to end up saying to yourself “Damn! I wish I could play like that.” Or “I want to play piano like he does!” You will never become a pianist if you won’t give the maximum effort to do training regularly. Quality over quantity is the principle of piano training. Piano teachers are being paid per hour to give quality training sessions to their students. You can seldom see piano session for over 4 hours.
Why is it so?
When you learn to play piano, you will feel exhaustion that is beyond physical fatigue. As you play the piano, both mind and body coordinate with each other in movement with proper timing, speed, accuracy, etc. This is very taxing to the brain. As you go along your piano training, you gain more stamina in playing longer and less fatigue on both mind and fingers. This will develop for hours to years of training, depending to your goal.
So how do you learn to play the piano?
Get a piano teacher – If you’re really dead serious of being a musician, then you have to undergo professional training. Either you enroll in a music conservatory or a personal piano tutor will be fine. Their experience in music is irreplaceable and they can give you a lot of helpful tips and ideas that can never be learned in books.
Learn Online – One of the best and most abundant alternatives is to find an excellent piano course that suits your needs in learning. Aside from affordability, online piano courses should address to your capacity to learn through quality of their lessons.
Self-learning – To learn playing the piano all by your self can be both easy and difficult at the same time. Easy in a way that no one will force you to practice. You’re on your own. You will be the one to put a benchmark on how much you have improved in a week or so. Less pressure in your part and you can skip some important lessons if you are having difficult time on some lessons.
Difficult in many ways because playing piano requires strict discipline. Without someone to guide you, you will have to observe your own performance. No one will push you to do better but yourself. It is like learning to run a car without going through a driving school. (But learning piano is way difficult than that.)
