In this mini-series I’m going to cover all of the basic concepts and teach you how to jumpstart your piano or keyboard playing career.

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.

Practicing for the appropriate amount of time is very important, but slightly less important than remaining focused on the tasks at hand. If you daydream and start playing your favorite pop tunes instead of what you should be playing, your efforts will be greatly diminished.
How long should you be practicing?
15-30 minutes if you are just starting out, or if you are just looking to play a few simple songs
30 minutes – 1 hour if you are looking to get better and play some more substantial pieces like Fur Elise.
1 hour – 2 hours – This will get you some good results
2 hours – 4 hours – Is the professional level of practice.
What should you be practicing
1. Warm up, should take up to a 3rd of your practice time
– Scales, Arpeggios, Hanon, Czerny,
2. One to three songs you are working on. Start from the problem areas. Do not start form the beginning all the time.
Plan for success
Over the next month, make a commitment to spend time everyday practicing. Think about your goals as a musician to determine how much time to practice. You can make good results putting in an hour every day. Set a timer and don’t get up from the piano until the timer is finished. Come up with a practice routine based on what we talked about in today’s lesson (warm up, 1 to 3 songs).
Optional: Make a recording of your playing on day 1, then on day 31 record yourself again to notice the difference.
Come back to the comments in this lesson to let me know how you did, or if you have any questions along the way.
