When you hear a song for the first time, it can be magical. When I began learning how to play pop piano and especially guitar I was astonished to find out that once you mastered a few basics, most songs came easily. If you can master six chords in every key, you can play almost any pop song. A professionally trained pianist will sound better than a beginner, even if they are playing the same, easy song. The thing about this song like many songs is that it sounds harder than it is, because of the rhythmic patterns.
2. Yesterday – The Beatles
Music is made up of pitch - the actual sound of the note - and rhythm - how fast or slowly you move from one note to the next. Of course, playing the piano involves using two hands at the same time. Also, keep in mind that you need to use the most logical finger on each note and this can take a bit of experimentation and working out what works best for you. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is always popular, especially with young students, but adults who are just starting out can benefit from learning this too. Start by putting your right thumb on the note C.
One thing that all musicians, including piano players, should know is how to read music. It is necessary if you ever want to play with other musicians in a band, to write a song, or to be able to play anything just by reading it off sheet music. Learning to read music is not hard to do. In fact, it is just like reading a book, once you understand the concept, and the more you practice reading sheet music, the easier it will be. Thus, there are a plethora of resources online to assist you with learning how to read music. If you are really serious about playing the piano, you should go all the way to learn your craft. Moreover, it is also of equal importance to know how to play by ear, which is being able to play a song just by hearing it. Playing by ear is not always easy to do, as you must be able to interpret the chords being played so that your version of the song can be recognized. For years people have been saying you have to be born with an ear for music to be able to play by ear, but that is not true. Anyone can learn to play by ear with enough effort and dedication to learning.
