					Beginner Piano Lessons

For most people, learning how to play the piano can be intimidating at first.
However the tension and anxiety that surrounds stepping into the unfamiliar
undertaking can be eased by the appropriate beginner piano lessons. Ideally,
piano lessons for beginners should focus on training people how to read the
musical notes and hitting the right keys. Before knowing how to read the
notes however, one must know where each key lies on the piano.

As any person with an interest in the piano will have noted, black keys on
the piano are grouped either in a pair or in groups of three. The black
keys represent the “sharps and flats” with the sharps having higher tones
than the flats. A beginner also needs to know that the key on extreme
right in the Piano is named ‘C’. Other keys after that are sequentially
named up to ‘G’. The next key after the latter is named ‘A’. Once the
beginner has mastered the keys, the next step requires them to understand
how the chords are read. As all beginner piano lessons will reveal, chords
are made of a combination of three notes, which are played simultaneously
to produce a specific sound. They are divided into major and minor chords.

In order to master the art of playing the piano well as a beginner, one
must be ready to dedicate at least one hour a day practicing the notes and
chords taught in the beginner lessons. Although there are different variations
of the piano, a full-sized piano has 88 black keys and the same number
of white keys. A beginner piano player also needs to understand that there
are 12 groups of notes on the piano, which he or she must commit to
memory in order to successfully play the piano. This however does not
mean that the beginner student should spend a lot of time learning the
scales and drills. Rather, lessons for beginner students must incorporate
activities meant to not only build musical skills in the learners, but also
engage them fully. Why do I say this? Well, human reason dictates that if
a person does the same thing over and over again, sooner or later they
become bored. The same thing happens to beginner piano learner. If the
lessons are not engaging them fully, they not only become bored, but a
good number of them become frustrated hence dropping off the classes.
Among the items that should be integrated in the beginner piano lessons
include: video lessons, sound files, diagrams and pictures. The use of
games is also essential in helping beginners build piano-playing skills. As
beginner students learn the notes, most piano beginner lesson also insist of
imparting them with music-related theory. Often times, students enroll for
piano lessons thinking that all they will do is learn the notes and play on.
However, most piano teachers understand that for a person to play the
piano perfectly, they need to understand why a particular song was
composed. Once the students understand the intentions behind the song,
they are then able to infuse more feelings and depth when playing that
specific tune.
