Piano Tips For Beginners

One of the most important piano playing tips is to set aside separate times for piano practice and piano performance. Both practice and performance time are used to improve piano playing, but in different ways.

1. Practicing piano slowly

Most accurate work is created at slow speeds in “slow motion”. This is when the brain can process notes, rhythms, tone, relaxation, good posture, counting, and accuracy with all simultaneously.

Slow practicing creates a “focused” picture of exactly what you are doing for your brain. Fast runs create a “blurry” version of your song. When you try to retrieve it from memory and play you get a blurry version back that is usually filled with all kinds of errors and mistakes.

2. Create a “big” sound

Music is 50% tone and 50% rhythm. You must create enough power at at the piano on each note for a rich, full tone. This is the most beautiful tone the piano can create.

This is where musical expression is clearly heard, not with a weak “half tone.” When attempting this full tone, remember to keep your fingers curved. They will want to collapse.

3. Create your own internal “clock”

Rhythmic precision is 50% of the music. Not all of us are born with a precise sense of timing, but we have a brain that is more than capable of creating this precision.

Take an extra step to create this “clock.” The mind is a very precise instrument.

4. Curve your fingers

If you collapse your knuckles when playing, you must try to push the knuckles out to a curved position. This is the starting “power” position in playing, and you will want to keep your hand position in a consistently proper playing position.

Do not let random habits of different finger shapes creep into your precise technique.
