Get Your Mindset Right to Learn Piano
Scott has been stewing over the last few months as to why some students are able to progress and sail through the method, while others, who were still working through it, were going through it “kicking and screaming.” There was no correlation between who asked more questions, who had previous experience, how old they were, etc. Scott found that it largely had to do with their mindset.
First, when any student starts, they come in with a mindset, or pre-conceived notion, which typically is whatever it is you’re trying to tackle, for instance, having fun playing the piano. You then take an action to complete that notion, such as practicing or enrolling in the piano lessons. Finally, those actions will lead to results.
What Scott is finding out, the mindset that is brought into these Piano In A Flash piano lesson is incredibly consequential as to how they proceed. Scott has created several mental baskets many of his students fall into.
First, the “this method works…but it won’t work for me.” Scott refers to this basket as the “none-confident ones. Second, those who come in thinking “i’ve tried to play in the past… this is my LAST chance!” Finally, the last basket is those who think “this is all HOGWASH! (but I wish i could play like that…)” These are the mindsets of those who typically struggle to work through their lessons.
Next, Scott covers the mindset of those who seem to progress through his online piano lessons and stay positive and energized throughout. These students tell themselves, “I am coachable and ready to take instruction!” They don’t think that it will take a miracle or that Scott has a magic wand, but simply believe that if they apply themselves, that they too can join the thousands of other students that have also gone through Scott’s method and succeeded in learning AND enjoying playing the piano through these online piano lessons. These students stay calm, work at their own pace knowing that it is not going to happen over night. They ask questions, enjoy the process of learning, and remain receptive.
As a reminder, Scott finishes with the old adage of “how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” Learning the piano does take time, but by assuming that you are willing to trust the process, and taking the small, digestible bites of instruction throughout his piano lessons, you too can learn to play and enjoy the piano like thousands of students before you.
Scott’s life goal is to help you learn to play piano through piano lessons that you can take anywhere and at any time to get you started having some fun at a piano or keyboard as quickly as possible.
