Learn To Play Piano At Home

Piano (Musical Instrument)

Lesson 14 in the DIY learn to play piano series. This lesson covers playing flat notes on the treble clef and bass clef. A flat in front of a note lowers that note by a half step.
Keep in mind that because there aren’t black keys between B and C, and E and F that F flat IS actually E and C flat is actually B.

Learn Piano The Easiest And Fastest Way — Chords! Click on http://www.ChordPiano.com for exciting news about a way to learn how to play the piano rapidly using piano chords galore.

Many adults would like to be able to sit down at the piano and play a few tunes just for their own amazement – they really want to learn piano. Many professionals have told me that after a hard day at the hospital or office they just need to relax, and playing the piano is one of the most soothing things they can do — not just the physical act of playing the keyboard, but the satisfaction of hearing beautiful sounds of the songs they love coming from that old musical instrument of theirs!

Many of us took piano lessons when we were kids, and most of us didn’t follow through but got busy with other things such as careers and marriage and all the things we do in our lives, but would love to get back to the piano learn piano and play some popular songs or maybe some old classical pieces we learned way back when.

The great thing about learning to play chord piano is that you can combine your ear with your knowledge of chords to find all the piano notes and the piano keys on the keyboard. Playing by ear is related to playing using chords, but it adds the dimension of understanding to the equation of learning piano.

Some of us came through the “backdoor of music” – in other words, we learned to play piano by ear or by chords before we learned to read music and all the music theory behind the musical notes. And that’s great. I later earned my Masters Degree — but at 7 years of age my piano teacher – poor Mrs. Graham — would have sworn under oath that I never would be able to play the piano at all, let alone learn piano in an advanced way.

Do yourself a favor and come on over to http://www.ChordPiano.com and get started on your way to really enjoying piano! Learn piano!

Focus: How to not only practice, but how to develop the mind to think about fingers independently so that in the end, each finger is as strong as the others and the two hands become one extension of your emotional centre.

Some very good practice tips including my own daily routine (within the scope of the video). Realise that the fingers don’t have muscles, rather they have tendons. You never seek to ‘strengthen finger muscles’, you seek to develop a mental connection between your mind and its absolute positivity regarding any pianistic requirement (difficult passage, etc), removing any doubt or negativity from this process.

The C Major Scale – Piano Lessons

The C major scale is usually the first scale piano players learn. It has 8 notes, and starts and ends on C. They are c -d -e -f – a-b- c.

Visually, it’s probably the easiest, because it is all white notes. As long as you know where C is, you will be able to play the correct notes.

The part that can be tricky is getting the correct fingering. The thing to remember is that the thumbs and third fingers are the ones doing the tucking or crossing.

The right hand starts with the thumb on C and continues stepping up to the third finger. After that, the thumb tucks under the middle finger to the next note (F) and this allows the rest of the fingers to get in place. After the thumb plays, continue stepping up to C. To come back down the scale, reverse the fingering.

The left hand starts with the pinky on C and steps up to the thumb which is on G. Then the middle finger crosses over the thumb and plays the A. The pointer finger and thumb finish up the scale.

C Major Scale fingering for the right hand
C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C
1-2- 3-1- 2-3-4-5

C Major Scale fingering for the left hand
C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C
5-4- 3- 2-1- 3-2-1

Jerry finds a piano in the attic of his new house. And it’s playing by itself… Heh heh, that sounds dirty.
