5 Things That Your Piano or Keyboard Teacher Won’t Let You Know as a Beginner Do you love to play your keyboard or piano, and every opportunity you get you are tinkling on the ivories. Have you discovered you have a talent and ear for playing shortly after taking lessons and really feel like this is going to be a permanent fixture in your life. Most pianists or keyboard players have other things come and go in their life but one thing that will stick if playing their music, and it’s something permanent to always escape through. Playing piano and keyboard starts off as a hobby for most in which people get a lot of enjoyment out of. Once you get the bug for playing music you will be fixed on this, and it will become a huge part of your life. Most musicians you speak to will always talk passionately about how much they treasure their time at the keyboard or piano. For some it is a way of escaping from the stresses that modern day society brings to us all. Five things to consider that your teacher might not let you in on as a beginner is: - Many piano and keyboard teachers will tell you that learning by ear is the wrong way for a beginner to start. This is not the case as it’s vital if you have a talent of playing by ear to utilise this skill and use it to your advantage. Musicians that can play by ear are very often far more talented players than people that are taught by sheet music only. Musicians that play by ear have a lot more expression and colour in their performances. 2. Most teachers will insist on Hanon Exercises weeks and weeks, and sometimes this is before even having the opportunity to play a song. If this is how you have been taught then you won’t know any different, but it is important to learn something that you really want to play from a beginner to keep your enthusiasm up. This is why so many people give up after a short period. 3. Traditional teachers may push from your first lesson to take exams. This isn’t always necessary and can put people off, and end with pupils not enjoying their lessons and their music. If it’s something you really want to do then your teacher should support you but not push you to do something you’re not happy about.

4. Teachers sometimes feel it is necessary to teach you in depth knowledge surrounding the theory of music. You do need to know the basics but don’t need to have in depth knowledge of theory to be a great keyboard or piano player. 5. Playing a song and then converting it to an accompaniment style is something that every teacher should give you the opportunity to explore, but many won’t do this because they prefer to teach using traditional methods. By playing it in a variety of different ways will give you the chance to accompany singers or support a band if this is something you wanted to do in the future. It can take many years of practice to reach the standard to be able play your own one hour song repertoire on piano or keyboard. But what if there was a simple method that could show any beginner how to do it in just 12 days? Find out how it’s done... Easy Keyboard Lessons
