FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I learn the piano myself?

 Can understand and follow instructions provided in a book and demonstrated in video lessons.Each person has a different talent for learning a musical instrument. One person might pick up things faster than another. Just like someone who already has little knowledge of playing music will pick up self taught piano lessons faster. That being said, you can learn to play the piano yourself if you:

  1. Are ready to put in at least half an hour of practice every day.
  2. Are passionate about learning piano and do not mind learning by yourself. Of course you can share your lessons with a partner and learn together to make things more interesting. 

These lessons assume that you have never ever touched or seen a piano keyboard before. So the lesson will start you from the very beginning. You can learn the piano yourself successfully provided you choose the right piano lessons. We have seen scores of books and online lessons. And we HIGHLY recommend that you start with these piano lessons for the most trouble free and streamlined introduction to piano playing.

How difficult is the piano as an instrument to learn?

Between a guitar and piano, a piano is the easier instrument to learn. Anybody would have a slight difficulty believing that if it wasn’t for Robin Hall and his amazing piano lessons. When you ask how difficult learning something is, no matter what it is, the answer really depends on two things. First, your own talent and skill at picking things up and second, what are you drawing a comparison to? Learning the piano is easier than learning virtually any other instrument you can think of like a flute, saxophone etc.

I have never learned playing the piano, can I still learned with these lessons? 

This is the central theme and idea behind these piano lessons. To help you learn the piano from scratch and progress rapidly. Even if you have never played the piano before you will be amazed at how much and how fast you run. And so will all your family and friends. Get ready to hear this a lot. “How long have you been playing?”. Get started today.

Is it too late for me to learn the piano?

We get asked this question many times. A lot of us decide to pick up learning the piano later on in life because of several reasons.  Whatever the reason, the question still stands.

There is no doubt in my mind that there is no age limit to start learning the piano. It is going to be great no matter in which stage of life you decide to pick it up. 

Also don’t worry about it taking too long to learn. These piano lessons are specially meant for adult beginners. You can shave of years of learning as compared to conventional piano lessons. It’s true.

If you are still concerned about your question and have some specific reason in mind, do write in and ask us your question.

I am an intermediate piano player. Can these lessons still help me?

The piano course starts at the very beginning but if you are intermediate players you can jump straight away to your section of choice. You can start learning advanced piano chords, blues piano, jazz and all the classics. The “speed learning” and “bumper resource” books will show you how to master some amazing techniques, which otherwise are only known to professional piano players.

Piano sheet music – Practice Pieces

Right Hand Only Practice

  • Lavender Blue / Brahms Lullaby / Auld Lang Sang / Toreador’s Song / Greensleaves / Oh When The Saints

CLASSICAL PIECES YOU WILL LEARN

Beethoven – ‘Fur Elise’ The reason this piano sheet music is often used for beginners is that it makes very obvious use of chord tones and the Left and Right hands are almost separate. The left hand is also often in the Ballad Style you learned in Book 5

Bach Prelude – Ave Maria (Explanation and Keyboard diagram of the easy pattern used) Bach Prelude – complete piano sheet music with key notes named. Amazing piece to start with.

Chopin Waltz in A minor Analysis of the chords and patterns used (very easy) Full piece – with chords and key notes named Full piece – no ‘safety net’

Jean Philippe Rameau – Rondino This is a good example of melody notes being very close together so that you read the ‘movement’ rather than the note. Good to practice hands separately.

Bach – ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’ You might recognise this fun piece from the Beach Boys’ song ‘Lady Lynda’ Piano sheet music in the key of C and the key of G

Bach – Air on a G string Ok, no giggling over the title. Remember the ‘Hamlet’ ads on TV. This is the music. Fantastic!

Bach – ‘Minuet in G’ You’ll know it when you hear it. A lovely yet easier piece to begin with.

Verdi – La Donna Mobile (from Rigoletto) Just think of a great tenor like Pavorotti singing this Left hand is a Split Chord rhythm

Strauss – The Blue Danube Everyone knows this Waltz. It uses an easy ‘Split Chord’ left hand and the right hand notes fit very neatly with the left hand.

Brahms – Hungarian Dance Imagine some Hungarian dancers when you play this. The left hand is very chord based.

Bach – Minuet in Bb Another lovely piece to start with.

Eric Satie – Gymnopedie No. 1 This has been used in many a TV advertisement (ie. The Fry’s Chocolate Cream ad) It is a beautiful slow piece and this piano sheet music arrangement is very easy to play.

Mozart – Theme from Sonata in C You will know this when you hear it – great Practice for scale patterns

Bach – Minuet in G This is another great little minuet in G.

Bach – Prelude in C minor Another piece that uses an almost identical pattern in each bar Key notes written in

Bach – Prelude in C Another piece that is easier than it looks

Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata Great piece for sight reading – this version is in an easier key but still sounds like the ‘real thing’ Norman bates played this in Psycho 2 – very apt

Chopin Mazurka in F Major Another piece that sticks very closely to chord tones

Chopin Prelude ‘The Polish Dance’ Easy version with chords and easy right hand Harder version with added chord tones

Chopin Op.28, No.4 in E minor Jack Nicholson played this in the film ‘Five Easy Pieces’ The left hand uses very slow chords so you have lots of time to find the right hand notes Easier than it looks on paper and a LOT easier with the Pianoforall Sight Reading Aid.

Scott Joplin – ‘The Entertainer’ People forget that this is regarded as a ‘Classical’ piece of music

Chopin – Prelude in Cm Op. 28, No. 20 Barry Mannilow used this incredible piece at the start of his song ‘Could It Be Magic’ It’s basically all single chord changes – both hands. Simplified and full version Chords and key notes written in

Chopin – Waltz in B minor Op. 69, No. 2
