Piano Beginners: Turn Your Song-Playing from Feeling Like "Work" to Feeling Like "Pure, Expressive Fun".
NOTICE: This is a course for people who have some basic experience on the keyboard already, (if you can play basic chords so this is for you!) but who want to make their playing WAY smoother and more fun.
Are you a beginner piano / keyboard player - who was some knowledge in chords but still can't "translate" it to fluently playing songs?
Does every song you play still feels like a lot of WORK instead of FUN and good music?
Here, you will learn how to play all of the songs that YOU love, in an EFFORTLESS way, that sounds way better than how you're used to.
In this class I'll share with you the several absolutely most powerful exercises to what I call "the most important ability of all when it comes to playing songs smoothly" - and this is the ability to quickly move between all the different CHORD INVERSIONS, and to completely control your right hand and your left hand in the context of playing songs.
I was stuck for a long time at the place where I couldn't really make my way through a couple of chords fluently until I started using these exercises, and that's where everything changed. I'll be happy to share them with you as well!
When you have total control over at least the basic chords + all of their inversions, (later you'll also start gaining control of the more complex chords)
You can literally play not just a couple of tunes, but THOUSANDS of songs open up for you.
Your song playing will be a lot more fluent for you and will seem like much less of a "work" - and instead more as "pure fun".
Also - moving between the inversions (instead of just the simple triads that start from the root) will enable you to "automatically" have excellent voice leading in the songs that you play - which simply means that everything will sound a lot more smooth and pleasant to the ears of the listeners.
I am a professional piano and guitar player and I still do these exercises every morning on the piano - that's how effective they are - not only to gaining this skill, but also to keep always improving it with the more complex chords that you keep learning. So that means that you get exercises for life here!
Other things that we'll work on:
Memorizing all of the chord inversions that you'll encounter.
You'll develop an independent left hand that can play complex bass lines with ease.
A basic playing pattern to bring thousands of songs into life on your piano - which will open up the doorways for more playing patterns.
Developing a much stronger neural connection to the weak fingers - fingers 4 & 5, that would then operate with a LOT more ease.
Gaining the ability to spice up popular songs, "jazzify" or "funkify" them to make your covers a lot more interesting and unique.
