Beginners Piano The Way It Should Be Played

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.

First off, if you are a complete beginner then please download our free chord sheet and piano for beginners guide. (It should be somewhere in the right hand margin).

Getting to know the basics should reveal what its all about and will give you an idea as to the work involved.

Once you have understood how to find all the notes, how to make basic chord shapes and how to play some simple rhythms (all explained in our guide that comes with the chord sheets) then you will be ready to explode your learning curve and start playing a wide selection of music. You will at last understand the whole process and although you will need to practice a lot to master any particular piece or song you will be capable with time an more importantly you will realize that it is possible to achieve. See our review of online courses for piano for beginners.

Beginners piano might seem difficult at first but you can break it down into simple logical steps so that it diesn’t have to be that daunting.

Here is Beginners Piano De-mystified:

  • First off you can learn the notes. Find out that there are only really 12 notes and then the pattern starts repeating.
  • Then you can learn a few basic chords. Discover that with just a couple of simple patterns you can apply to each note you will be able to play all of the major and minor chords in any key.
  • Pick up a few simple rhythms either by ear or by following some example lessons

That is… beginners piano couldn’t be simpler. Just download the beginners piano chord sheet and guide which you should find somewhere over there in the right hand margin. This will give you more detailed instructions. Good Luck
