To teach your child to play piano, you have to learn it yourself. Understand this lesson and teach your child the basics of piano playing and reading.

This is our first piano lesson in which we explain the basics of reading piano music. We start with 5 notes but using both hands, separate. Master this piece before moving to the next one.

It’s been 1 year this month since I started learning piano and it’s been an amazing and somewhat life changing experience! You may think life changing is a little over the top… but for me it really is true, as this September I will become a full-time music student at University and I’m beyond excited for that!

I decided to make my own 1 year progress video, after watching so many myself before finally committing to purchasing my own digital piano. Who knows, maybe if it wasn’t for those videos I wouldn’t have ever taken that first step, which is crazy to think looking back now! That’s why I decided it was important for me to record these clips and make a video, in hopes of motivating someone else to take up an instrument, giving it there all and seeing where they can go with it too.

Up until month 8 I used Jane’s piano tutorials to learn 99% of the music I learnt. She is a retired math teacher and dedicates her free time to playing through requested pieces by viewers every single day! Mostly all classical pieces have a tutorial and many popular video game, anime, TV shows and movie compositions can be found on her channel. If you really want to learn but can’t afford a teacher, I think this would be your best option.

Dave starts out by playing the intro to the song, Crocodile Rock so that you can bring it to mind. Scott Houston and Dave discuss how the song was played in a style similar to rock songs produced in the 50’s but the song was recorded by Elton John in the 70’s.

Dave demonstrates playing the chords used in the signature lick in the intro, Crocodile Rock: G, Em, C, and D with his right hand. He also shows you how to invert a chord while his left hand plays the roots of the chords.

Cheers Theme Song (Piano Lessons)

Take some piano lessons from Scott Houston “The Piano Guy.” In this video, Scott and his guest, Dave Powers, show you how to play the TV theme song from “Cheers.” Dave and Scott suggest listening to a recording of the song and trying to imitate it. You don’t want to play a song exactly as it is written in notation. Good players interpret the sheet music. Scott and Dave discuss the difference between playing the song solo style vs. accompaniment style. This song is unique in that it sounds good when you play just the melody line because it is easily recognizable. Dave gives some suggestions on how to play stride piano. They discuss in detail how to read and play slash chords.

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.

The following skills are covered in this video: pedal tones 170, pedaling, slash chord & stride piano. The video concludes with a great performance of the theme song from “Cheers.” Dave accompanies himself on piano.

This is an issue that really gets me worked up sometimes…when people think that “it’s too late” to learn piano as an adult. I can tell you from experience it’s ABSOLUTELY not true.

I’ve seen time and time again adult beginner piano students absolutely kill it on the keys! But that being said, there are 3 key points that really separate the adult beginners who make it and the adult beginners who don’t. And that’s what I hope to cover in the video.

Basically, kids have some advantages. They have more free time. They have parents that encourage (or threaten!) them to practice. They have fewer other things going on.

But there are also some advantages you have as an adult! We’ll go over them more in the video. Think about those 3 keys and make sure you’re following each of them as an adult piano learner. It’s really what separates the ones that get good from the ones who quit.
