By the end of this easy lesson for beginners, you will have insight on the free resources that are out there that can help you learn and practice piano online. These include practice exercises, lessons, and sheet music.

You can learn even more about piano and music from my website http://www.pianolessonsontheweb.com

Musictheory.net – This website is one of my favorites for free practice exercises and lessons. The lessons are pretty bare bones with text and images, but do a good job of explaining the basic concepts behind music theory. You can learn about the staff, clefs, ledger lines, note durations, measures, time signatures and the most basic things you need to know in the beginning stages of learning piano. The cool thing is you can download the free apps so you can take your learning on the go. Also included are great exercises, which are especially helpful if you are learning how to read music or identify intervals. Musictheory.net is highly recommended for beginner piano students.

Teoria.com is another great website that is more geared toward practice tools than the lessons themselves. It has a lot of exercises that musictheory.net doesn’t have.

YouTube
YouTube is another great website to learn piano and music. There are a few great channels out there and here is what I recommend.
LessonsOnTheWeb (my channel)

I think my channel is the best for beginners who are looking for a straightforward course to help them learn piano. I recommend starting with the Beginners Start Here Playlist then work your way through lessons playlist 2, 3, 4, etc. These days I make lessons on topics requested by my community.

Intermediate Piano Lessons 1 – Learn How to Play Piano Better with Good Practice. This is a new series for intermediate students. It will review the aspects of good piano practice and what things you should be including in your practice.
The Keys of Good Practice are as Follows:
1.Consistency of practice is very important as it will allow you to form good practice habits.
2. You want to focus on what you are working on. Create goals and concentrate on what you are doing.
4. Change things up for a little bit for variety.
5. Get 15-30 minutes for beginners; 30-60 for intermediate; 2-4 hours for advanced.

In terms of consistency, it is always better to practice for a smaller amount of time everyday than it is to practice for many hours a couple of days. Make sure to develop good practice habits and make practicing a priority. Pretend that your time at the piano is a class that you need to graduate from school. Don’t skip it unless absolutely necessary. Have goals when you practice and consistently focus on those goals each time you practice.
You want to start with the most difficult material since your levels of concentration will be the highest when you first sit down at the piano. Some of the things you should be practicing include scales, arpeggios, and Hanon exercises. Learning your scales will help your fingering as well as understand what notes exist within a certain key. This piano lesson is only recommended if you have learned to very basics of playing the piano. Coming up with a good piano practice routine is essential and will ensure you get the most out of your piano lessons. Polishing your practice routine is a solid first step at moving to be an intermediate to advanced piano student.

Lesson Notes
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.
Good luck!

A piano lesson for intermediate students. Looking for an even better way to learn than YouTube? Check out http://www.lessonsontheweb.com.
The items on this list are easy to understand, but putting them into your practice will take some work.
1. The first key of good practice is consistency. It is better to practice a little bit everyday than a whole lot for just one day. Your brain will be able to pick up smaller pieces of information at a time and consistency will allow you to develop good practice habits. Just like exercise or brushing your teach, piano practice requires consistency.

2. Focus. Focus on what you are doing and make sure to turn off your phone, T.V. or whatever else may distract you. I also recommend you set a timer and stick to it. Don’t get up from the piano unless absolutely necessary!

3. Add some variety in to your practice so that you don’t get bored. You need to have consistency like I mentioned before, but you also need to change things up every once in awhile.

4. It is recommended that you get 15-30 minutes of practice a day for a beginner, 30-60 minutes for an intermediate and 2-4 hours for an advanced student.

5. ENJOY YOURSELF!

Additional Information:
Some additional things you may want to add to your practice include hanon exercises, czerny exercises, scales, and arpeggios. It is also recommended that you practice with a metronome, which will help you keep time.

In today’s lesson, I am going to share with you 10 easy hacks that will help you learn piano pieces faster. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player, you will find these hacks helpful. Getting in micro practice sessions is a really helpful tip I can give you because not only will you get more practice time, your brain will better pick up the information in a shorter session. Obviously, you also want to become familiar with music theory. You should be able to identify and play scales, chords, and arpeggios. Learning to read intervals can also help since you can use them to read music much faster. If you are serious about learning how to play piano, you want to watch the whole lesson to learn all of the hacks.
