Famous Piano Pieces and Songs

 

How to Play Ludovico Einaudi Primavera on Piano

 

 

Famous Piano Pieces are Purely Beautiful:

 

If you love piano music, you will likely agree that no other music has quite the same effect as the pure, sweet, and classy sound of piano. (My husband does not agree, he prefers guitar) I just can't see it... for me it is piano all the way. I dreamed of playing piano ever since I was a little girl. No other instrument ever held my interest for long.

 

I was not fortunate enough to have the chance to learn piano before I was an adult... do not wait - if your child wants to learn how to play keyboard or piano, get them started now! It is truly sad when they are not given the chance to learn, if they want to learn. (I do not approve of 'forcing' children to learn an instrument if they have no interest.)

 

Electronic keyboards are a great, affordable way to get started. You can upgrade to piano later if you wish! Have a look on Ebay or Amazon for some great deals. Yamaha is also a good place to start.

Some have the talent, and really enjoy playing an instrument... I believe that everyone CAN learn an instrument, but no one should be forced to learn how to play one. Either you enjoy it, and WANT to play, or you don't...  it's not for everyone. Choose it only if you love it - otherwise you will not remain dedicated to learning.

Learn to Play Piano Faster

 

Increase Your Finger Speed On The Piano:

Today I'm going to teach you a few finger exercises to help you build up speed and dexterity on the piano. Let's start our finger exercise in that old standby, C Major. With whatever hand you choose to start with, play the first five notes of the scale, using all five fingers.

Work your way from C to G, then back down again. Don't play as fast as you can just yet. Start off nice and slow and make sure that all of the notes are the same volume. You want steady movements. Don't flick your fingers, move them steady and in a straight down motion.

Now let's move on to a full scale, say the F major scale. Start slowly, playing just one octave at first. Play up and down the octave, nice and slowly. Once you are sure that you are playing the notes steady and evenly, you can begin to pick up speed. It's best to use a metronome for these practice sections.

Start at a slow tempo and slowly turn up the pace of the metronome. Practicing this way insures that you will develop a proper sense of musical timing. It's also a fun idea to practice playing blues scales. When you are playing a blues song it sounds really great to play a fast blues scale at an appropriate part of the song.

The last finger exercise I am going to talk about is arpeggios. An arpeggio is when you play the individual notes of a chord instead of hitting them all together. Play the notes of your chosen chord and then work your way up the keyboard, playing higher and higher octaves of the chord.

Whatever methods you chose for finger practice, remember that starting off slow and building speed is the proper way to insure that you aren't learning bad habits. As you practice the exercises your fingers will develop the muscle memory required to play the scales faster and faster without having to think about the notes.
