When I first began my piano lessons at age eight all I ever wanted to do was play the cool pop tunes I heard on the radio. So I know what its like to really hate all those boring theory lessons they force upon new piano students in the beginning.. ugh!
Now keep in mind there is a time and a place in one's piano tutelage where the study of music theory makes sense and will be necessary.
After all, the piano consists of seven basic white keys and five black keys for a total of twelve unique tones.
So in order for us to gain a full understanding of why the piano has been arranged in this manner and how we (as musicians) can extract the right melodic phrases and rhythms we'd like to use to express ourselves.. its important to grasp the language of this thing called "Music".
Therefore, in order to accommodate both schools of thought I'm going to show you two completely different ways to begin your piano lessons off right. Are you ready? Here we go...
How To Play The Piano With Numbers
The first approach I will show you is a super simple "Play Piano By Numbers" system that is easy enough for even a 5-year old child to learn. If you have any young children who show an interest in the piano I'd definitely recommend you start them off with this free course. As long as the student (child or adult) can count from one to five this course is a breeze to follow along with.
Can't read music?
You won't need to read a single note of sheet music.
In fact, these beginner piano lessons will show you how to play three complete songs on the piano using only 10 piano keys.
Over the years many people have told me this was the most fun they'd ever had getting started on piano. To try this free & easy piano course yourself, just click here to begin with lesson one.
Otherwise if you're looking for an even better way to learn the piano by playing all your favorite pop songs, video game music, film & tv music on the piano, let me to introduce you to the latest and the greatest teaching app on the market today...
