Hi friends, I just completed a new video of my recent vacation to Krabi, Thailand. This place is as close to paradise on earth as you'll get. My mom and I had a blast... check it out! And I hope this video helps to uplift your spirits a little more today...
You have come to a special place on the web where piano
lessons are truly fun, easy, educational and best of all... free!
My approach in teaching the piano is to focus primarily on the language of music rather than the technical study of music. In my opinion, the overemphasis on music theory is the true reason most piano courses fail as often as diet programs.
On this website you will find piano lessons that are primarily geared toward building up your fingering abilities so I can show you how to play three easy piano songs. I have written these beginner songs specifically for newbies who are eager to learn the piano!
Best of all... you won't even need to read a single note of music notation in order to play these songs. I have designed these piano lessons to be an enjoyable process, which should finally get you over the hump of starting and quitting the piano out of frustration.
For the most part, I have decided to keep Get Piano lessons.com a safe and comfortable place where an absolute beginner can easily get their feet wet and start playing pretty music right away. Because when I think back to my own struggles of trying to learn the piano as a child, I realize there is a huge niche in piano learning that needs to be filled.
I don't remember where I first heard this quote (maybe it was from Mr. Miyagi in the 1984 Karate Kid movie)...
"There's no such thing as a bad student, only bad teachers"...
Well in my heart I have always felt that the general way in which piano lessons are first taught to beginner students is flawed.
If you are a youngster trying to learn the piano the traditional way, it may take awhile before you finally realize -
"Hey, its not me... there's something wrong with this learningprocess"
At least this was my realization as a young student who was struggling with standard piano lessons. I eventually realized that its not necessary to begin sight-reading music notes before you've had a chance to learn the language of music first.
Well then how did you first learn to speak? When we were toddlers we began learning whatever native language we speak today by listening to and mimicking the spoken words and phrases of all those around us. We generally did not begin learning to put those spoken phrases into letters, words and sentences until we were a little older and had a basic comprehension of speaking that language first.
This same principle can be applied to your first experience with piano lessons as well. This is why there are so many awesome piano players who can not read a stitch of music notation. Because when you first start learning to play a musical instrument with your heart (and not your brain) the technical side of music can wait until later on in your music education.
So based on my own personal experience with learning the piano and digging deep into the true essence of myself, I have created a very simple piano method located here at...
This website is my life's work....
and its all yours to enjoy free.
With that said, I'd also like to encourage you (and everyone) to always put your best foot forward and do good things for society and for the people around you.
We all live here on this beautiful earth. So why not contribute something that is unique about ourselves to help improve humanity.
With all the chaos happening on our planet right now, I believe we all should participate (in our own way) to help create and spread as much positive energy as possible. Because right now our world needs more generous contributions of music, art and love to counteract all the greed and negativity that still exists.
Every last one of us is uniquely gifted with some kind of special talent or skill that can help uplift the spirit of another person.
As for me, I hope you enjoy my personal contribution to you and to all of humanity worldwide...
