Every piano player was a beginner at some point and started the journey with basic lessons. For some, these lessons were the worst since they were filled with boring and hard to understand music theories. If given a choice, they would probably choose not to study all of these lessons again.
That is the old story when traditional lessons dominated.
After years of development, some have come up with modern piano lessons for beginners that are engaging and easy to understand. Learning piano has never been easier! Check this.
Why start as a beginner anyway?
Some people prefer to learn as fast as they can and therefore skip piano lessons for beginners or just skim through few free lessons on the Internet. No matter whether they succeed or not in learning a few songs, they will find that they don’t understand the fundamentals enough to move on to more advanced melodies later.
By pursuing basic piano lessons for beginners, you will be able to build a necessary baseline for your piano curriculum. Each lesson has easy concepts in which you answer three questions: What, Why, and How. Once you have the foundation, learning piano becomes a lot faster and easier. So, next time you want to skip one or two lessons, think again!
What should beginners do to learn effectively?
Before you jump into piano lessons for beginners, here are 3 things you should remember to have a good start and then speed up your learning curve:
1. Be prepared, aka buy yourself a good piano and a suitable chair/piano stool/piano bench that is height adjustable. You can choose between an acoustic piano or a digital one. Each has its pros and cons. If you are just starting out and can’t afford either, digital apps or a keyboard might work.
2. Don’t pick too hard/fast/long pieces (like ‘Rach 3’ with 30,000 notes). Since you are a beginner, it’s important to choose songs that are challenging enough to sharpen your skills while maintaining medium speed and short-to-medium length. Playing the appropriate songs will help you to work your way up steadily and make you feel encouraged that you are actually achieving goals instead of wasting time.
3. Know that results don’t come quickly. You can learn all of the lessons in one day, but that doesn’t mean you are already an intermediate level player. Let’s get real, learning piano can be fast, but it takes time for you to practice, revise, and even make mistakes.
You know what people say – “It is the first step that costs.” Beginning to learn something new is never easy, and, at the start, there are moments you just don’t want to deal with the difficulties anymore.
Hang in there! Because if you give up, you are going to miss the chance to have a lot of memorable and fun experiences. Whenever you feel like the piano is against you, just stand up, walk away from for a moment, and return to the lessons later with a renewed zeal. Good luck with your studies!
