I can't stress the importance of Point 5 enough. I was constantly trying to learn pieces above my level, and that burned me out in the long run. Then I discovered Ludovico Einaudi, and alot of his pieces are quite easy to play and learn. And they are beautiful! So yes, after realizing that I also should "utilize" the progress I've made and just play great music, my motivation for learning harder pieces skyrocketed.

Ludovico Einaudi is definitely a good place to start at... Like you said, it's fairly simple. He has a lot of repetitive shapes, that kinda helps, because it feels like an exercise, but it doesn't at the same time, if you get what i mean. I myself started with Ludovico too, specifically with Una Mattina. That's a beautiful piece, even more so if you have seen the movie. Good luck on your path :)

This. I started off my piano journey with Chopin Nocturne op.9 no.2 and it took me SO long to learn it. I definitely should've started off with something more begginer friendly. I eventually learned it but I got burnt out from just learning one song.

The "AAB" method was what my instructors taught me, and it's AMAZING the difference it makes. Focus on playing it right, no matter how slow you need to go, no matter how tedious it feels or if you think "I should be doing better than this". That doesn't matter. Focus on the speed and rhythm later. Here's why it works: When you play notes together, the neurons for performing that action fire, and stay sensitive for a bit. If you fail, they'll kind of connect together but it won't stick very well. But if you play it RIGHT, the satisfaction basically shoots through all the neurons that just fired, and it strengthens their connection by a lot. So the next time you try, it feels more natural. It just feels like the next thing to do. I like to practice this way at night, because it is when you sleep that it then cleans up and solidifies the connections and they stick around long term. The next day might need a bit of warm-up, but often after just one evening, it can feel natural the next day.

wow, thankyouu- this explanation makes so much sense to me, I often try for up to an hour getting a section of a piece played through correctly- when I can finally play the correct notes (at whatever tempo) then i’m satisfied enough to leave it for the next day, Then when I come back the next day I can almost always play the piece so much more easily!

Thats so weird. I never had a piano teacher (guitar tought), and i never learned any other way. It has to "sound" right note-wise. Otherwise i got frustrated. The speed wasnt important. Most songs still sound correct, if you just play them slowly. But they don't if you don't hit the right notes.

Point #1 is so important no matter what instrument you're playing. I was a self-taught musician for years, and now at 52 I'm finally taking proper piano lessons in order to learn how to read better and improve my technique. I spent 8 years playing bass in a rock band too. The only way I was able to play without formal instruction is because I understood chords. I see the way my kids were taught music in school, mostly as woodwind players, and I knew they would learn better and faster if they understood chords. So many kids are handed a trumpet or a sax and are never taught about chords because they play single-line instruments. But understanding chords puts everything in context. I only wish I'd known this at 10 years old.

A rule that I’ve set for myself when learning a piece is: if I’ve made a mistake at a specific spot 3 or more times, then I circle, write, markup my music at that spot. But if I continue to mess it up, this means it is in my muscle memory. So I repeat that single section 10-15 or even more times in a row, starting slow then speeding up to full speed. This really helps me flatten out the wrinkles in my pieces so to speak

The best example I was given for chords is each note is like a letter or syllable whereas chords are whole words or phrases so they are very important, because when you play correctly you are communicating correctly. Great points!

I agree with focus on chords. I began on organ (contemporary style of music) at the age of 7 and was taught chords from the very beginning. I am so grateful my teacher focused on chords and their structure. Learning theory and chord structures was a game changer for me. I use the same approach when teaching piano and find my students have much quicker and satisfying results. By understanding basic theory and memorizing a few simple formulas for creating chords, any chord is easily executed. It also helps develop improv much easier. Yup…timing is everything! The metronome, tapping, or counting aloud is a must! It is this area I get the most resistance from my students; however, I try to stress the incredible importance of it to them. I am grateful for my teacher, back in the 60’s, teaching me this method as it has truly shown to be an asset to my musical journeys.

Very good suggestion. Your tip to play perfectly at the expense of tempo helped me a lot (my teacher taught me this). One thing I would add to that is to play the correct rhythm but at a slower speed to maintain accuracy (so correct relative time between notes, but at a much reduced tempo). This added touch made things quicker for me. Also, I think that you should perform recitals - even if completely informal. Schedule even one friend to come and listen at a set day and time to a song you practice to perfection. The fear of embarrassment can focus your practice tremendously.

In Synthesia you can also change the mode to note reading. So it's not only possible to use it in this note falling way. Which makes it pretty good to practice note reading I think (at least for me and at least for beginners).

I wholeheartedly agree Jazer with your fifth point about setting high goals but also remembering to have fun. A lot of people I imagine would go into a music lesson or lecture, setting themselves high goals and having laser focus (which they should don't get me wrong), but also forgetting that piano playing SHOULD be about having fun as well. I remember my last former piano teacher (miss you Rob) hammered that into me from the very first lesson. That and also the fact that he taught me pieces that I wanted to learn, which made it fun regardless and made me WANT to learn those pieces and also take it seriously.

Absolutely!! I thought the same thing when I was learning guitar. The most important thing is learning all the chords, their structure and moving between them. I figured it would work good for piano as well. I want to learn to play the songs on Conor Oberst’s “Ruminations”album. They sound fairly simple and I can already play some of those songs on guitar. I just have to adapt that ability onto a piano. Awesome videos Jazer!!

Jazer, one year ago when I took up the piano, I looked up Piano tutorials and I came across yours, Your tips are just simply amazing, I really find slow practice, non-gambling, daily consistent very effective. They're not only for beginners, but intermediate players could also apply this method. From your Self-taught Beginner's Pitfall video, I got myself a teacher, and he just advised me the same tips you provided. I am now also quicker at sight reading. Now i'm practicing Chopin Nocturne Eb major, and maybe more difficult pieces in the future, thank you for the first step. You inspired me !

10:46 I'd like to mention that Synthesia has been improved considerably since I first started using it. Many of the concerns you name have been addressed, but these improvements might be less visible on social media due to their non-visual nature. Synthesia offers customizable visual note aids. So, when encountering an unfamiliar note, you get an immediate visual cue. Want to start simply by learning note names? Synthesia can display the name of the note on the corresponding bars. A particularly effective learning method is what I term the "guitar hero mode," gamifying the process of mastering a song. This is extremely useful for self-learners who might otherwise feel stuck or unprogressive. Synthesia offers an objective, tangible measure of your progress. But, I agree that relying solely on Synthesia or any single software isn't the optimal way to learn.

The Absolute Accuracy Rule is in fact a version of the best advice I have ever got about piano practice: never try to solve more than one problem at the same time. Which means that you should not bother about even tempo, rhythm etcetera if you still struggle with finding the right keys. So first you must get the fingering right, then you need to get the keys right - let it take as much time as you need.

Great advice! Early on I had to depend on ear because as a kid the only music sheets I had access to where these really complicated pieces that my Grandmother had when she was well enough to play. Once I started really dedicating myself to learning sheet music I was able to start breaking down the bits. AAR is really really good and sometimes you find a piece of music is just as interesting at a slower pace. I remember trying to tackle a piece of tchaikovsky when I was 12 and found that a slower rendition brought a bit of a more enigmatic feeling which just became fun.

Love this! I am a flute player and vocalist who dabbled in guitar and piano. I always approached the piano intuitively because I never had time or money to formally learn it with lessons. I would say that he is EXACTLY right about hitting a cap. I could play more beginner/intermediate pieces but then when I went to sit down and learn a new one I had to read each note individually and it took ages. I always knew chords was my next step and I’m so happy that this validated that! Gotta learn those building blocks if you are going to be a smart piano player! I’ve been interested in getting back into it and this gave me a great starting point! Thank you!

Learn all triads and inversions. Learn all seventh chords. Learn common cadences and chord progressions. This has helped me a ton and I haven’t even nearly learned all my triads, triad inversions, and seventh chords. It really takes a long time but every thing I’ve learned about those and practiced I’ve been able to apply in all areas of piano from sight reading, improvising, and the chopin waltz I’m learning. 2 year player here. I’ve been obsessed with efficiency in practice sessions. It’s payed me so well and I’m happy I have been practicing efficiently. I am a motivated learner so this helps and you may not be able to do everything I said. That’s ok

Not following the "AAR" is a mistake even professional pianists make. When you're learning truly difficult music -- late Beethoven, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Scriabin, etc. -- you simply cannot learn it by glossing over it at tempo a dozen times, a hundred times, a thousand times. There is no other option than making sure you know every single note, how your fingers are getting to them, and where your fingers are going next, and it requires that really slow, focused, thoughtful practice that Jazer's talking about here.

I totally agree with the whole 'chord recognition' and point 4 is the synthesia aspect of piano. I couldn't understand how people would 'learn' from that. I prefer sight-reading as its more accurate! Also, to recognize that mistakes happen and you learn each time you practice, be patient! I love the point 1 where it discussed AAR. Its so true, its taken me so long to be calm and slow.

Really great information, thank you. I tried to learn piano for over a year but many months ago now, I gave up. I was improving but found some things so frustrating. It's nice to see though that I was pretty much doing all the points you made, but I still struggled. My main problem was doing different things with each hand - I know, it's a common problem, and I used to work on various methods to practice that (I've watched your video about that). One main issue I have is related to space and privacy, but unfortunately no amount of lessons can help with that. :) I need to work something out though as I miss playing so much. Just a simple but interesting chord can give me goose bumps. I'm convinced I have some sort of magical connection with music and I hate that I cannot play well enough to release it into the wild! I feel like the capability is inside me screaming to come out, but there are too many barriers.

I totally agree on the 5 with a single caveat - the order of them can't be rigid. I think we need teachers need to remember to separate out two concepts 1) "Playing piano" to learn to perform music that other people have written for piano; or 2) "Playing piano" to learn to master a struck stringed instrument for your own expression. I believe they are two very different approaches to learning to play piano, and they will both get you to exquisite piano playing both as a performer and a master of the piano. There are plenty of piano players that don't play (and could care less about playing) Chopin Nocturne in Bb or even Beethoven's Fur Elise. I know really great jazz artists that only speak in chord structures to each other and don't really sight read. They live in a world where their only metronome is another instrument. In those instances where a beginning student only wants to learn jazz or pop. You must start with how the piano sounds along the keyboard (e.g. how does the piano sound 6th over 2nd in every position?; what sounds are good for what emotion). If you start inserting AAR and don't leave room for impromptu "happy accidents" that some students learn best by, a lot of students will get bored and stop practicing. Especially if you insist "...we have to learn this first..." Also, I think we need to figure out "how" people learn. For example, I'm dyslexic - this has plagued me my entire life. And, believe it or not it translates to sight reading music, because I often mix up what line I'm reading the note on. And, ultimately, I just learn with my other senses way better than seeing symbols on a page (i.e. hearing, feeling the piano through the keys, etc...). My only #1 rule that you need to do first and foremost - "You must push down keys on the piano every day for at least 15 minutes - I don't care what you play -- just PLAY" The rest will naturally fall into place when the student is ready.

W o O w ! Jazer, I noticed the more relaxed delivery in your teaching videos. You've taken the time to identify and relate to your subscribed audience and I love it. Yes, that's me the senior, self taught partner in your audience speaking. I am at the 1.7 year mark in my self taught journey and, just now, "clicking" on how the chords relate and create a foundation for the musical piece I'm playing. I now, in most cases, know the next key or chord that will fit in the piece I'm playing when I lose my place on the sheet music (laughing). I sight read all my pieces and I add a new piece every month. I have progressed on to more complex songs and find sight reading allows me to understand music theory. Thank you for your hard work. You are appreciated.

Great video! If I can add one thing it would be that I encourage all of my students (beginner and up) to be able to use their left foot to keep the beat. It really helps them to develop the coordination in their bodies and when you weave that skill in with the metronome their sense of subdivision is much more advanced earlier on.

Just want to say, I've been studying music for 12 of my 20 years on this earth. I started with violin for about 8 years before I expanded to guitar and eventually singing and piano. Violin became part of my nature and I didn't have to think too much about theory or the little things to play. My older brother played guitar all of my living years so when I picked it up It was like second nature to me. Moving onto singing and piano, I met a wall of learning and plateaued with my learning in these domains due to my prior knowledge inhibiting me to some extent. This video really helped me conceptualize things in a palpable way in relation to my prior conditioning in music. Immediately I found myself improving in both singing and piano due to these tips that can benefit any aspiring musician. Thank you for this video, and I could not recommend it more to both new piano players, and new musicians in general.

Absolutely on the sight reading! I'm semi self thought (learned musical theory in school, but my parents couldn't afford piano lessons). I relied heavily on learning by ear and I would write my notes on the music sheet (knowing it was hindering me, but I was a dumb/stubborn kid). I'm finally getting back to piano after 20 years and I absolutely refuse to write the notes and yeah, I'm having to pick them apart 1 by 1, but I know I'll get there. I was always stuck too in the past with a 61 key keyboard (still have that now) which is EXTREMELY limiting, finally getting a 88 key piano tomorrow at 40 yrs old and I'm as excited as a 5 yr old on Christmas day!

Good exercise to practice sight reading is to see it as a sort off fun to just play random song once while your working on more demanding pieces. This way I got a productive distraction that requires me to focus again. In addition the quick switch from one piece to another trains your adaptability.

As someone who's been playing the piano for over 10 years, I can say that ever since I taught myself chords years ago, piano became a lot easier and a whole lot of fun! I think it's a crime that they don't teach you chords in regular piano lessons at schools. I took three different piano classes and every one only taught me how to read music, when learning chords should be the most important thing. If you don't know chords, you can't improvise well, make your own songs, and you'll always be afraid of hitting the wrong notes when if you know chords and the key signature of the song, then you can know what notes to play without having any fear at all.

I learnt guitar first, self-taught, and the only thing I was interested in were chords, and looking back I remember being baffled how so few chords were generally used out of all the possibilities. I used to randomly put my fingers on the guitar then try to put a chord name to what I was playing. I was wrong a lot of the time but it taught to just put any spare finger somewhere to see if it sounded good. I'm slowly learning piano, keyboard now and the chords are just so much more obvious on a piano.

I played guitar for 6 years and violin for about the same and I can say these tips work for all music, I started learning piano due to my hands degrading due to illness and got a midi keyboard to try and play music still without the hand strength I need for strings. The AAR method you talked about is definitely helpful though, I found myself developing a similar technique while playing other instruments before I found this video and can attest to slowing down and just making sure your fingers are landing in the right place. Gambling is bad because it doesn't reinforce muscle memory, whereas muscle memory has no trouble changing speeds or even rhythms.

I took piano lessons when I was very young, and so have a basic understanding of how sheet music works, though I've since focused more on theory and improv skills, not focusing on sheet music. I've recently been wanting to get better at reading sheet music, to continue learning new ideas. Your 4th point has inspired me to get more involved with sheet music, and more specifically with sightreading. Do you have any advice on a path I can take from my current state? I think starting with easier songs mskes sense, as your video mentions. Any tips on books to use for easy difficulty, and growing from there?

I couldn’t agree with you more strongly. I was a woodwind player when I was young. I learned playing one note at a time. When I began to learn piano, music became a whole new discipline. Chords ARE everything, and learning to “hear” what is coming next is also critical.

im just starting out with piano but i've found that given my other music experience it comes fairly naturally to me. all throughout school i was a vocalist so scales and chord progressions are basically a second nature to me, that being said like you said i learned to sing by ear and although i can understand a piece vocally its basically nonexistent when it comes to piano. probably the reason in highschool although i was the oldest bass the position of section leader was given to somebody else because using a piano as an aid was a big help for us learning pieces. its interesting that you pointed out the synthesia aspect being limited as well because im running into an issue where i find that the piece im specifically working on would be much easier to comprehend if i could translate it from sheet music to piano lol. i should also meantion that my other musical background consists of guitar and bass so its very much watching other people do it to understand it or tabs but we really dont do sheet music in the guitar world lol

Yes! The idea of people just having "talent" is this sense of "that person can do that but I could never do it," which is a really sad way of looking at just about anything. Just like learning to do anything, it's a skill that is built over time and repetition (and also a lot of theoretical knowledge). This can be acquired by anyone if they are willing to put in the time and work.

Yes - I learnt piano for years. Got up to grade 7 & played very averagely because I didn’t master those techniques. I played mostly by ear and didn’t ever master the chords or reading music fluently. I would learn a piece to about 75% fluency and never quite master it perfectly. A bit frustrating and I gave up eventually. My son is now starting to learn and I want to teach him the importance of these principles so he can become better than I was!

I'm also a self-taught beginner in the piano world, with only a few months of owning an instrument. But i have some prior experience with guitar (also not a pro but had some formal learning). I can say that all 5 of these tips are really useful. But if you are really just starting - tips 2 and 5 will give you greater boost in a short run. They will help you to "grasp the feel" of actually playing music. Then you can add others as well as long as you start to feel more comfortable. As an example - as my first piece I chose Moonlight sonata's first movement. Because 1) it's a beautiful composition 2) it is easy enough to understand, has traceable structure 3) it has pretty difficult parts for the beginner, but they don't feel impossible. I didn't try to learn it all in one go, but I'm slowly mastering it piece by piece. Now I'm a little bit stuck in the end part of it where you have polyphonics in your left hand, which is hard for me. But while i learn it I also spend a decent part of time in front of piano on just trying interesting fragments from different musical pieces (mostly non-classical and often far above my current level). This lets me enjoy the sound I can get and also helps me see a progress in my skills. Like several months ago a sequence of several complex chords would make me sit with every note and now i can get a basic hold of them in just a few iterations. When you do one piece only and for a long time, especially as a newbee, it's pretty hard to see just how much better you become in general. BTW all these tips are 100% applicable to ANY musical instrument.

@Robbin Block you're welcome 😁. I can't help with your book choice though, because I'm neither a pro nor train with a teacher. For classical or complex melodies I just google for sheet music or synesthesia videos from KZbin (but as said in a video last option can be harmful for complete beginners as you don't see the structure behind "falling notes"). And for simple songs I just do my best to pick "by ear". But that works for me because, as I said, I have some background on guitar. So I have some theory basics like chords already in my head. If you are a complete beginner in music, I'll advice to find a teacher for the first few months at least. Most of teachers can access your level in a couple of sessions and they will already have some pieces prepared for different levels.

I really wish I had taken more note of point 2 early on in my piano learning years. Once I did start to implement it the results were amazing. I realized that practice doesn't make perfect, only perfect practice makes perfect. If you played it wrong 10 times, you have to play it correctly more than 10 times. Sight reading, funnily enough, was my best thing because I was lazy and didn't practice enough so I spent half my time sightreading stuff I should have known already, lol. Must have driven my teachers crazy but it developed into quite a handy skill mostly by default.

Love what you're teaching here and I'm subscribing! ... I like your attitude:-) A very important note about sight reading .. Impress on the student to Always keep the eyes on the sheet music .. Even when it is memorized!! ... because doing so gives you the time to inspect all the intricate nuances .. dynamics .. markings etc etc while playing because you are relaxed .. and this will also give you a much better interpretation! .. another bonus is there is never one second of wasted time when playing through your well practiced pieces! .. and with this approach your skills get better for learning your next piece ... trust in this method because it develops muscle memory .. and the more you do this you will begin to learn the art of Tonal Vision ...

Hey sir, First off, thank you very much for the video. I greatly appreciated your insight, and I believe it was very kind of you to share it on a public forum like KZbin. Regarding Synthesia: I agree with you completely in that using Synthesia as a replacement for sheet music is a terrible idea; however, as a retro video game nerd, I personally believe that Synthesia is a tool of DIRE importance in gaining access to a composition (and subsequently learning the composition).... But ONLY in that someone can use Synthesia pieces on KZbin in tandem with sheet music editing/creation software such as MuseScore or NoteFlight (or even pencil and paper). My normal process is to find a piece I like, then transpose the Synthesia version over to traditional sheet music, which I can then use for actual practice. I'm not sure if my results are typical, but I feel like once I finish editing a piece and printing it out, I not only have real sheet music to practice with, but I kind of feel like I have a better idea of what's coming, because I "made" the composition. I know I'm just a faceless/nameless nobody on the internet, and no one will probably ever read this; but on the off chance you happen to stumble across my words, thank you again, and thank you for suffering my company.

All excellent suggestions I learned piano years ago, the traditional way and only within the last 20 years have I thoroughly learned theory which has changed everything. I wanted to add that repertoire and memorization are all important. Set a goal for five memorized pieces and then another set of five and every so often go through those and play them and don't let them fade away. With the addition of being able to improvise because of theory and understanding that all music is built on that same theory with repertoire and memorization and everyday sight reading, One can make progress.

This is interesting, namely the part about AAR. As an amateur musician I am always under the impression that playing in time and becoming used to playing through the mistakes is important. I have not thought so deeply about the mechanical process involved.
MissCaraMint 9 ай бұрын
You should only play through a mistake when you are say playing a concert, or maybe in a group practice. Basically a place and time when playing in time is the first priority. When you are practicing home alone though it is important to practice the mechanical aspect. Slow it down and go over it untill you can play it just a little fater, and then a little faster again, and at some point you will be playing in time, and with the right notes.
Samuel 7 ай бұрын
@MissCaraMint Saying you're going to play differently for a performance than during practice is a recipe for disaster. Playing through mistakes (and keeping rhythm/time at all costs so you do not get lost) is a skill that also needs to be practiced regularly. Both practice methods should be done regularly. Spend half the time really focusing on the notes, and half the time playing in time (with a metronome) and playing through mistakes.
MissCaraMint 7 ай бұрын
@Samuel By the time you get to the stage where you know the piece then you are past the point of making these sorts of mistakes. That's the point at which you start really practicing for performance. They are different phases of practice. We are not talking about practicing for performance though. We are speaking about practicing.
Samuel 7 ай бұрын
@MissCaraMint All practicing is practicing for performance. And learning the skill of pushing through mistakes is not something that is quickly acquired. If you only allow yourself to practice pushing through mistakes after you have fully mastered a piece, you will never get good at it. Especially when you have to sightread at a performance.
MissCaraMint 7 ай бұрын
@Samuel No it is't. You need to break it up in order to practice the difficult parts. Otherwise you waste too much time on the easy bits and don’t spend enough on the hard bits. The techniques you learn when going slow are also good for sight reading, and practicing performance makes you able to instinctively know to carry on even if you do make a mistake. These are practical things I have learned from having played for over 20 years, including some as a professional musician. Learn the piece first. Spend time on all the difficult bits. Then play it through slowly. Practice that speed until you are sure there are no mistakes, then go slightly faster until you can do the new speed without mistakes, and then faster until you reach the intended speed.

Nice video! Point 4 is interesting because when i learnt piano I heavily depended on sight reading (from the numerous times when i didn't practise prior to my piano lesson so i would be sight reading during the lesson), as a result I didnt memorise the music and couldn't play much without sheet music. Now I'm training myself to play by ear.

chords truly are magic! i can't say i am much into the chord progression on a concious level. a chord on its own can add so much depth and fullness to the music. i am no piano player, i just compose with software. i also seem to have a waayyy different ear to most concences and people. it's genuinely fascinating! i can also recommend the usage of dedicated keys like c-major that they mentioned. if you don't have a good ear for the "right" sound yet, try to look up or even learn major and minor key scales. i hope it's applicable for piano. i might try to go back and play the piano

Dancing has given me an amazing sense of internalized rhythm that has helped me greatly in learning my instrument (guitar). I use a metronome more to push my comfort in technique rather than learn rhythm… knowing that I have a fixed period of time helps me focus. But once that has been smoothed out, no need for the metronome for performance.

I love this video! Luckily I had a teacher who covered all of these points and I pass them on to my own students. One comment on point 3 (metronome): I learned this years ago from another teacher. If a student is having trouble with the rhythm in a particular measure, tap the rhythm gently on the head (warn them first!). Works like a charm and I think it's better than tapping the shoulder for a problem measure or two. Shoulder tapping may be better for an entire piece. For rule #2: Absolute Accuracy Rule. My teacher used the "add a note" technique for a difficult passage. Play one note, than add one note, etc., until you get through the entire passage. I have found in teaching that covering the notes that follow helps the student to focus better. My rule is you have to play the passage correctly 3x in a row. If the student messes up on the 3rd try, then she/he has to start from scratch. It's a tedious process that teaches discipline and by the time the process is finished, the student can play the passage. The challenge is getting the student to follow directions!

Loved the video. Kinda hit home on the last point got burned out of music in college and just getting back into it again after 10 yrs away. As to point one though. In high school i joined in the jazz band on piano and told my piano teacher about it and they gave me a lot of chordal pieces amd taught me the basics of music theory and got really into Romantic Era of music. I remember it was always funny in Piano studio in college. Id be blown away by the other students playing all these crazy Bach/Beethoven/Mozart pieces i just could never seem to get a grip on. Then see the look on their faces while im playing Rachmaninoff and Chopin chordal stuff like it was nothing while i know they struggled nonstop on the chord stuff.

Point 3: I’ve had someone say I couldn’t keep time when instead I was just trying to think of the next keys or chords which slows me down and therefore appears as if I can’t keep time, so there’s a difference. Therefore, I’ve learned to not play for anyone unless it’s something I know flawlessly and not something I’m still learning.

A follow up: I have been practicing piano for a month now and have a private teacher. I practice 50 minutes, twice a day using my Soundbrenner Pulse secured to my ankle. I barely notice it yet my beat is now right. It used to be all over the place. Well worth the money IMHO. Thanks Jazer. And yes, I always focus on accuracy first and later increase my speed. I’ve also found value in the iOS app Notes Teacher. It is very good for free but provides many enhancements for a one time charge of $2.

I agree very much with point 2. For point 3, I don't disagree at all, but something I do with my students is have them practice counting with the metronome but without playing. This is to learn to feel the beat with their body without having to add the coordination of playing something. THEN I have them practice counting on their own, and make sure it's steady and play the piece (in sections like described in point 2, if necessary) while counting out loud, and preferably moving in some way (with their core body). We can feel the beat naturally if we focus on it. Metronome is a great tool, but I always found it more distracting and not helpful; although that was because my first teacher never explained anything about how counting works, in the first place.

AAR: I teach as Form, Distance, Speed. Something I learnt from running and realise it applies to almost anything you want to do in life! Form: for running it would be moving your body correctly - hips, legs, arms etc. For piano it is getting the correct notes, then rhythm. Distance: for running you wouldn't run a marathon straight away - build up distance gradually. For piano focus on small sections - a phrase or even a bar at a time. Hands separately first if necessary. Speed: In running your speed will only increase once you have worked on form and distance. The same is true for piano. We expect so much to be instant these days. If we realise we need to put in a lot of time and effort , we will be happier with the outcomes and realise that it was worth it 🎹🤩
