Whether you just want to learn to play the piano as a hobby or you want to become a maestro like Mozart or Chopin, you must practice a lot. Invest in MIDI keyboards to help you reach your goals. Below, we have compiled 8 of our top tips on how to master the piano…
- Set Aside Time for Practice
Ideally, you should set aside at least 20 minutes each day for piano practice. The more time that you practice, the more likely you are to master the piano. If you have a busy schedule, consider setting 20 minute intervals throughout the day for your practice.
- Warm Up Before Practice
Just like texting, you will find that practicing playing a piano with frozen fingers can be quite daunting. If you have not properly warmed up, you are likely to make a lot of mistakes as you practice. Warming up will help you play pieces more fluidly. As a learner, you should always warm up before practice to avoid stumbling on the piano keys.
- Try Learning in Stages
Unless you were a born a piano virtuoso, mastering a whole composition the first time that you use a piano can be hard. Instead of attempting a whole composition when practicing, consider breaking it down into small manageable sections. Depending on your level of experience, you can break down a composition into just one section or even a whole page. Ideally, you should choose an achievable goal and stick to it until you are ready to take on more.
- You Do Not Have to Practice a Piece from The Beginning
Remember that you do not always have to start every piece at the beginning when you start your piano practice. If you always start from the beginning, you will find that the time you allot for piano practice will end before you have tried out other sections. To improve your proficiency within a short period of time, consider choosing different sections for each practice session.
- Be Patient with Yourself
If you rush through pieces, you are likely to make a lot of mistakes when playing a piece. If this becomes habit, the mistakes may end up becoming ingrained in you. Ideally, you should play each note deliberately until you have fully mastered it. With the digital keyboards available in the market today, you can even record a practice tempo and then play it at a faster rate to see if you have fully mastered it.
- Consider Practicing Even When You Do Not Have a Piano
Though it may seem bizarre, you can practice your keystrokes even without a piano. If you have difficulty mastering a section, practicing your fingering can help your muscles master how to play the difficult areas.
- Listen to The Songs You Will Use for Practice When Not Playing the Piano
Learning the tune and tempo of a song can help your fingers adapt to the piano keys. To learn how to play the piano faster, you should down the song you will use for practice and then listen to it as often as possible, even when you are not close to the piano. If you understand a song properly, it can also inspire you to practice frequently.
- Try Practicing by Playing Your Favorite Songs
You are more likely to practice more often if you are playing a song that you like. Since you will be practicing on one song for a while before gaining some proficiency on the piano, ensure that you select a practice song that you like. If you are looking for a great piano practice song, you can check out the catalogue at the MusicSoft Sheet Music Library. The catalogue has thousands of songs meaning that it is highly unlikely that you will find a song that you like. Additionally, you can easily customize music that you purchase meaning that you can easily change the notation or transpose the keys before printing out the composition.
