Improvisation – Piano Lessons

Take some piano lessons from Scott Houston “The Piano Guy.” In this video, Scott shows you how to get started improvising on a piano.

Here’s a great tip to try. Use the notes: C, D, Eb, E, G, A
to improvise with your right hand as you play the blues chord changes with your left hand. You will never hit a “bad” sounding note that way, and can improvise all night.

Chords for your left hand part:
C7=C,E, G,Bb
F7=F,A,C, Eb,
G7=G,B,D, F

Scott’s life goal is 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.

Scott Houston is the host of The Piano Guy television series on Public Television and has taught hundreds of thousands of folks like yourself, how to have some fun on their piano or keyboard. He wants to help you get there too—as quickly as possible.

Hang On Sloopy – Piano Lessons

Take some piano lessons from Scott Houston “The Piano Guy.” In this video, Scott and his guest, Dave Powers, discuss how to play the rock tune “Hang On Sloopy” which is a great 3-chord tune.

This song uses 1-4-5 chord changes. First Dave plays the baseline with his left hand and the chords in his right hand.

Dave demonstrates playing the melody line and the chorus. Then Dave shows you how to play root chords in the left hand. Then he stretches out a bit and uses power chords in his left hand along with the baseline to simulate a rock n roll guitar.

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.

The video concludes with a great performance by Dave Powers playing “Hang on Sloopy” on piano.

How to Play Piano With Both Hands
https://goo.gl/4fnBGG

General Tips on Playing With Both Hands
1. Learn the piece, example, etc hands separate first, then put hands together.
2. Play SLOWLY
3. When first learning to play hands together, avoid examples with complicated rhythms.

1. Scales
Scales are a good way for beginners to develop dexterity and coordination when playing keyboard with both hands. This is because playing scales involves playing notes in synch with one another. Usually scales are played with the same rhythm in both hands, so no worries trying to play different rhythms and concentrating on notes at the same time.
Where should you start? Start with the C Major scale and learn it hands separate. Then try playing the scale ascending very slowly with both hands. Once you are able to play the scale ascending, learn the scale descending. Then play the scale ascending and descending. Learn 1 scale a week until you can play all the major scales slowly. Then gradually increase the tempo over weeks to achieve greater speed.
Here is a scale exercise. Start with C Major and play up the scale with half notes in the right hand while playing whole notes in the left hand. Then do the same but with half notes in the left hand and whole notes in the right had.
2. Hanon
Are great for developing two handed dexterity between both hands. These are for playing in parallel meaning you are playing the same intervals at the same time. Try learning one a day or one a week until you learn them all. Play them slow at first then over weeks gradually increase the tempo.

3. Czerny
These are highly recommended for practice playing different rhythms and pitches for each hand.

The piano is a great instrument to play in a band or as a solo act. Why? Because you can play both the melody and the rhythm on your own. One of the biggest struggles as a beginner pianist or someone who’s pushing through to the next level of the piano is syncing up your left and right hand. But once you perfect this craft your left hand becomes the best support for your right hand. The left hand can play simple octaves or broken arpeggios. But, before you start jumping into more advanced methods with the left hand, start simple, let it become the best support as possible, so your right hand can free flow, exploring the melody of the music you’re playing.

It’s time to take a step outside of the major keys and look at playing some blues as jazz using minor and flat notes. Once you find your way around the black keys there’s a lot of cool patterns that can fall into place.
