What beginners do, when they start practicing the piano is they depend on a teacher. They search down a teacher, from whom they expect to have all of the knowledge. It is good but also has some bad aspects too. This is not an age where we keep our work remaining for any information. So, you just cant wait for a teacher! You want to learn piano. You have to do some works. Some think that learning a piano by yourself is a tough work but seriously, it is absolutely wrong.
Be with me, to the end of this article and you’ll know then how easy is learning a piano by yourself only.
1. Make your hand fluent
Before going for any particular lessons or any music, you need to make your hand fluent and easy. It is so, because take, you have understood the keynotes of any melody, but you are finding it difficult to press the keys. Then you won’t find it peace when playing your piano. Make your fingers to move smoothly. You’ll find it hard to move from one key to the. And, when it’ll happen, you will see that you are pressing a key longer than the another. Be cautious about these problems.
2. Be a good listener
You are going to learn piano by yourself. So, you have to be a good listener. You have to listen to lots of music, scales, harmonies and melodies. The more you’ll listen to the more you’ll know about the basic music. Keep in mind that you can’t start playing music without knowing the basic tunes or music scales. When you’re learning by yourself, there’ll be no one to point the errors to you. So, listen again and again those scales and tunes so that, when you’re playing it, you can find the errors.
3. Get introduced with keys
When I started playing the piano, after a month, I didn’t know that the keys are different for each scale! Yes, every scale has a different set of key notation. When you’ve started playing the piano, it may be your first work to know about which key you’ll play and about its key notations. Do remember each of the keys and notations. See, if you are pressing it longer or not. Because it happens when you don’t know about the key and are taking the time to shift one from another. Get the proper knowledge about keys of your piano and most importantly select your scale.
4. Start with easy notes to play
Music that is delicate to hear is also tough to master, tough. Don’t let the complex music to fascinate you. You’ll find notes of complex music on the web easily, and it is really not suitable for beginners. In these notes, it requires lots of handwork and music knowledge. So, tempt down your greed and start with easy tracks. Try to master them fast but without any mistake. I’ll take the name of one track that you’ll try to play after 2 weeks of practicing. It will be Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-Sharp Minor “Moonlight Sonata” – Beethoven, try it and master it.
At last, man keeps going slowly but doesn’t lose hopes. You can master a piano, only if you have the will. So, buckle up and start practicing.
