Piano for All - My #1 Recommendation

It's never been easier to learn Piano or Keyboard

Imagine being able to sit down at a piano and just PLAY - Pop, Blues, Jazz, Ragtime, Ballads, even incredible Classical pieces? Now you can.. and you can do it in months not years! Imagine you could learn piano or keyboard without having to spend money, time and effort on traditional Piano Lessons.

I've studied allot of different piano courses in my time and I have to say, not all of them where equally valuable. Granted most course can teach you few decent things but what most people need is a clear structure and focus to keep them on track. Improvement comes a little bit at a time so with a good structure, small new abilities build upon one and other to demonstrate real improvement. Without this direction students often find themselves frustrated at seemingly not making any progress. This is a very common trap and new players will often put it down to such myths as "I have no talent" or "I'm not musical", which of course is never true. As a professional musician and teacher you can trust me when I say, "I know the feeling". On the other hand nothing beats what it feels like when you get on track and start making real improvement.

You can stop worrying about trying to learn and actually start enjoying the music that your creating.

'Piano for all' is one such product that provides a really good direction for any student wanting to play contemporary piano styles. What it does exceptionally well is to lay down a really solid ground work and methodology of piano playing which is invaluable to a wide range of styles. It then goes on to progressively become more advanced, guiding you through a range of piano styles and techniques, building a strong foundation in a range of styles which will have you sounding like a pretty professional musician in surprisingly little time.

Piano for all teaches you the right stuff in the right order.

Using a unique combination of video, text and audio, all accessible from a single e-book, 'piano for all' is easy to use, a lot of fun and will have you playing real music in no time. The 'piano for all' complete course actually gives you 10 multi media e-books, each of which could very well be sold for the same price individually.

The 'Piano for all' Process is simple...

You start with Popular Chord based Rhythm Style Piano (think of artists like Elton John, Billy Joel, Lennon & McCartney, Barry Mannilow, Lionel Ritchie, Coldplay, Norah Jones and so on) which is EASY but sounds amazingly like the 'real thing'. This enables you to achieve a professional sound almost immediately. Once you are sounding great and having a whole lot of fun (which motivates you to learn more) you then expand step-by-step on your chord and rhythm knowledge into Blues, Ballad style, Jazz, Ragtime, Improvisation and yes.. even Sight Reading Classical music

At the moment the 'piano for all' course is also an absolute bargain. For only $39.95 he is giving away his entire collection of multi media e-books, inclusive of 200 videos, 500 audio tracks and a bonus e-book increasing your creative ability. He could easily be selling each book for around that much (many people do), the equivalent would barley cover the coast of two lessons with a private piano teacher. I highly recommend this course but obviously everyone is different. This product is offered with a 100% 60 days money back guarantee. It is defiantly worth checking out so to see more click here.

How to Practice The Piano Effectively

Do you think that your improvement at the piano is too slow?
By Beny Adams

If so, here are some helpful tips on how to practice the piano more effectively and how to make the best out of your practice time. I admit that some of the tips are quite obvious, however many people simply don't follow them and therefore don't progress as fast as they could have.

Commit to a practice schedule 

Find yourself the timetable to practice and turn it into a routine. Find the time in which you are relaxed and with energies and practice during that time. If you will not be committed to practice schedule you might be challenged by distracting events.

Practice daily 

You should practice daily for at least 30 minutes. If you cannot devote daily hours for practicing, remember that it is more effective to practice 30 minutes daily than an hour every two days. After about 15-20 minutes of piano playing, you might become mentally fatigued. So if you are getting frustrated with a long practice session, take a break and return after a little while. By breaking up the session into smaller parts, you will be mentally refreshed and you will see better progress in the shorter run.

Slow down 

Be patient with yourself and don't try to rash and learn a lot of different things at once.
One of the most important things when practicing the piano is to play slowly. You should play as slow as you need in order to play accurately. Most accurate playing is created at slow speeds. When slowing down the brain can process notes and rhythms. With practice, speed will come automatically.

One hand at a time 

When learning to play a new song, it will be much more effective to play first the part of the right hand and only after you master this part play and master the part of the left hand. Only after you know to play the piece of music with each hand separately, then try to play it with both hands.

Try not to repeat your mistakes 

Don't be bothered about making mistakes especially in difficult passages, its part of the learning process. However, when you encounter a difficult part, don't try to ignore it as if the difficulty does not exist. You should treat it as an opportunity to become a better pianist. Difficult passage should be practiced slowly, separately and repeatedly until you master it. Keep in mind, you'll progress much faster by learning from your own mistakes. Just keep on practice slowly and the skill will come automatically.

Enjoy the little accomplishments 

Stay focus on improving the things you have just learnt whether it is a new key or chord. Your achievements along your piano journey shall give you a sense of accomplishment and keep you motivated.
