The piano is the most complex musical instrument, requiring great concentration, high skill and musical memory. While this may seem high, it is a standard in the professional piano music business today. If you only have a few keys to play, it is only natural that you won’t master it as well as a pianist who has thousands of lessons. Therefore, you should practice this section when you have the time.
Learn a musical scale to play each chord.
A beginner would need to learn to play between 80-128 keys. The difficulty will increase as you improve.
Learn a musical scale over all chords.
If you are an advanced player who can actually play all over the strings, this should be much easier than learning chords over the piano.
Practice picking every single note from every key in your key of C. This is especially important for finger dexterity in both the low and high registers.
Playing in a minor key
When learning a language, it may be useful to study how other foreign languages sound and then try how English would sound differently had it been written using our native alphabet on our keyboards. However, when learning to play the piano, don’t go about learning from a book.
Study your songs (you’ll often find yourself watching them online).
Play them over real songs from your favourite songs. For instance, if a favourite song is ‘Shake Your Love’, and you love the song, you can try playing the bass lines over it. You may be surprised how easy it becomes over time. Just remember: you won’t be able to hear all the notes as high as the best classical players. In order to be able to play the higher notes, you will need practice at this point.
Playing in a major and minor key
When learning to finger your fingers, you can practise the fingerings in key, but I don’t recommend this, and instead strongly suggest you learn the piano using the scales above. You will be able to play a little bit of everything in these keys, and eventually you will feel more comfortable in a specific key (if you find you can play a ‘dim’ keyboard over ‘D’, try that!).
If you learn to play the piano in your natural key, you may have to alter the key you play the music, and so you could start playing in the minor key as well. Remember though, I don’t think it is ever that easy, as your fingers can become tired and
