Keith Jarret – Inspiration to learn the piano

Posted by Beginners Piano in Piano Techniques, Play Piano By Ear


Keith Jarrett Köln concert 1975 Part I por Zela01

This is one of my favorite piano players… he makes the piano seem so simple at times and at others is sounds as if he must have 3 hands to be able play all that he plays. When I first heard Keith Jarrett I wasn’t sure if I was listening to Classical music or Jazz.This recording is of him improvising in front of a live audience in Koln, Germany. It is just him and there is no overdubbing on the recording and no he doesn’t have 3 hands.

Beginners Piano The Way It Should Be Played

Posted by Beginners Piano in beginners piano

Whilst trying to find some sheet music for my upcoming beginners piano course I happened upon this incredible beginners piano video.

This is a recording of the late Wilhelm Kempff playing the famous piece popular amongst many beginners, The 1st Movement from Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

This man is totally in love with his instrument. Just observe how he caresses the keys effortlessly. This is quite a spectacular recording that brought tears to my eyes when I heard it.

Learn Piano By Ear

Posted by Beginners Piano in Play Piano By Ear

I have just come across this fantastic resource which will help you to learn piano by ear.

Its a free online ear training software.

The utility takes you from absolute beginner piano level through to a really high level and trains you to recognize the intervals between notes. The theory is that once you have learned to recognize all of the intervals then you will be able to play any song by ear with out needing to see the music. There are full instructions on the site but for me I spent hours just playing around with the utility. It made me remember my time at the conservatory.

eartraining

Have fun with this and see if you can learn piano by ear yourself.
