As always, any of the artistic abilities can come to you naturally because you may be a prodigy or you will have to do this the old fashioned way, which is, by practicing hard. Now, when it comes to musical instruments, other are just plain hard to play and others like the piano will take less time and less effort.

The piano could very well be the easiest instrument to play. This is because the keys are arranged sequentially and it is not hard to cram them in their order. Very soon you will be playing without even looking at the keys.

Here Are the Steps To Playing Like A Pro

  1. Get a Piano And The Accompanying Aids To Learning

You should be able to get yourself a piano that you can practice with at home anytime that you want. This is because, you will be having convenience and you won’t have to go anywhere to learn. But if you can’t get one, at least make sure that you will have access to one. Get the proper bench to sit on because it is important.

  1. Have A Proper Sitting Posture

Playing easily will happen if you get a seat where you will be seated properly. When you have established a god sitting posture, your elbows and hands should be parallel to the floor and your back should be straight.

  1. Check Your Fingers

 

They should all be resting on a white key. That way, you can have access to the whole sequence that you need to have. The C note will be the one that you thumb should be on and then the rest follow. You will start by learning the keys at the center of the keyboard or piano and the rest can follow.

  1. Learn The Sequence

The sequence is easy starting from doh, reh, mi, fa, soh, lah, ti, do. That is the complete sequence of notes that the piano avails to you and then you can now manipulate them and learn where each one of them rests. That way, you can play without mixing up the keys.

  1. Learn Simple Tunes

These can be hymn book songs, carols and other common tunes that will be easy to play before you proceed on to learn the scales. Simple tunes will make you aware of the keys positions and you can memorize them where they are.

  1. Teach Yourself The Scales and Harmony

Scales are the gradual move up the ladder of notes and it will help flex your fingers and make you aware of where each key is. After that, you can learn to harmonize the notes so that they work together to produce the best sound. This way, you can produce the complex tones.

  1. Practice More

When you are learning how to play, you will need to play more and more until you get the notes just right. For example, you will have to learn how to play one tune with one hand while the other is picking out another different tune that blends with the first one. Using the pedals is also another aspect that you will learn for dampening the notes and making them resonate as required.

In Conclusion– The art of playing the piano may not be the easiest but it sure is not very hard, especially if you are hardworking. Compared to the wind and string instruments that need plucking, you have better chances of playing the ‘Fur Elise’ than mastering ‘Enter Sandman’.

  7. pianists are the best type of people that you can come across! They have a different style and class than all other people because they can play that symphonic instrument with some ease! I also have a piano and I wanted to learn all the tunes from some teacher but I could not find someone with that skill and even when I found one, he was not able to teach me something substantial! This guide is much better than some teacher and it has helped me much better!

    I do not see why I should not recommend this program to anyone out there who is willing to learn piano. There is no better guide to help you out within a very short time. Well-structured and clear explanation for every step. Just forget about spending long hours in piano classes. When you have this guide it is more than a trainer. I used it to learn piano and later on my son used it since I could not get time to train him.

  10. It is such an aesthetically pleasing instrument, but I never thought that there are so many things you have to keep in mind! Thank you!

  11. The piano is the best instrument to start a strong musical foundation. There are two categories of reasons why this is the case. The first category of reasons has to do with ease of learning and the second category of reasons is about the piano’s long-term purpose as a tool for any kind of musician.

    If you want to get your technique perfected, or become a classical pianist, then it is likely to take longer than a few short weeks to get right. In fact, 10 years of piano lessons may not see you reach the level of the very top pianists in the world.
