Learning Piano Takes Too Long!

Fast Piano Lesson (Video) - Werewolves of London - 1:47

Piano Lessons Take Too Long to Learn Piano!

I've played piano since I was 5 years old, so I've gone through a few piano courses. There were a lot of exercises that they made me work on that didn't help me play songs any better! I would practice for a week or so, but never really enjoy the exercise or even knew why I was practicing it in the first place. Learning the fundamentals is great, but lets be honest, it's not the fun part. The fun comes when you get to show off your favorite song to all your friends and family! Maybe even have them sing along!

I've learned piano the hard way, at certain times in college I was practicing 8-10 hours a day. Only later to realize I was practicing the wrong things! Now after so many hours of practicing piano, I've figured out how to teach beginner students how to perform songs quickly and easily. AND I make sure that they're learning the right things! Imagine playing most of a song after one just one sitting! These lessons are no longer than 5-10 minutes, rewind the parts you need a few times and you can learn to play the song like I do in under 20 minutes!

It shouldn't take so long to learn a new song! The secret is to simplify the songs enough so that they're at your ability level. Each lesson starts off with the easiest patterns for the song and then works up from there with more complicated fills and variations. If a song takes you two weeks to be able to play, then its too challenging.

I've simplified some of these songs so that in just a few minutes, even beginners can play them while picking up some really important tricks about the fundamentals of music. Please watch the video below to quickly learn Werewolves of London! That way you can see what I'm talking about!

      Very nice blog, I agree it is much more enjoyable learning the piano when you can actually play a song. I learned all the basics in about a week its not to much fun when all you can play is scales.
