Precious Ways to Help Learn Piano

1. Choice between piano or keyboard to start with for a beginner:

The most effective and affordable way to start are Electronic Keyboards. The keyboard should be with 88 weighted keys. The weighted keys build hand strength and respond more like the keys of an acoustic piano. Most electronic keyboards do not have weighted keys. If a keyboard with 88 weighted keys is still out of your price range, we recommend that students use a keyboard with at least 61 keys.

2. Familiarize oneself with basic piano knowledge:

Can be either 88 keys digital piano or 61 keys digital piano. Usually for a beginner, 61 keys piano keyboard is enough to cover maximum number of songs. Keys are organized in a distinctive 12-note pattern that repeats across the entire piano key layout. White piano keys are called naturals because they make a natural note when pressed. Black piano keys are called accidentals because they make a sharp or flat note when pressed. There are seven naturals on the keyboard namely C-D-E-F-G-A-B.

3. Schooling yourself with major keys and chords

Start with playing and familiarizing to differentiate the tones i.e. the middle tones (middle of piano), flat tones (left black keys), sharp tones (right black keys), bass tones (low sounds) and high tones (high sounds) by listening to them. The basis step is to study the 8 major keys and to be able to identify the sound each one creates. Songs are mostly composed of variation of chords and the chords are composed of same notes. Identifying these notes is the major step towards identifying a song. As for starter, one should focus in getting accustomed to the basics chords, its location in the keyboard and its sound.

4. Notice the patterns

All songs are composed of musical patterns. Chords repeat themselves often in a steady beat or rhythm. If you can identify the patterns that you hear, it is much easier to play a song that you hear. You’ll be able to learn which chords are combined with others.

5. Mastering finger placement

In order to really play, one has to know with which fingers to play the keys with. Following any instructional video or book follow the pattern of numbering the fingers. With practice one can master the finger placement.
