how to tune a piano
Why do I feel isolated when playing the piano?
Isolation. Pianists can feel isolated because the piano is such a self-sufficient instrument. These aren’t unfixable problems, though. To develop a good ear, actively listen to lots of music, gain a deep understanding of chords and harmony, and learn how to play by ear.
Why do I learn piano?
Because piano requires fine motor skills, knowledge of both treble and bass clefs, and good musicality, when you learn piano, you gain transferable skills for other instruments. Since learning piano, I’ve learned flute, electric and acoustic guitar, electric bass, and a few basic drum patterns.
What is the grand staff on the piano?
Most piano music is written on the grand staff. The grand staff is special to the piano because there’s a top and bottom part, usually denoting right and left hands.
How much does a piano teacher cost?
Piano instructors can cost anywhere from $20 to $100+ per hour, and you should factor in transportation too. However, online piano lessons (like the Pianote Method) can be significantly cheaper. We’ll discuss the advantages and disadvantages of online vs. “in real life” lessons in the Shopping Guide.
What does "f sharp" mean?
A sharp means we raise a note up by one half-step. A flat means we lower a note down by one half-step. Therefore, F sharp is the black key immediately right of F, and B flat is the black key immediately left of B.
How long should I practice to play songs?
If you just want to play your favorite songs and have fun, practicing 15 minutes a day will allow you to progress. Of course, in general, the more you practice, the faster you’ll improve. But practicing is less about putting in the hours and more about honing the right skills.
What is the time signature?
The time signature consists of two numbers at the beginning of the staff. The top number tells you how many beats there are per measure (a measure section of music enclosed by bar lines). The bottom number tells you what note value takes one beat.
