What does it take to learn to play the piano?

 

The following short article can be seen as a generalized set of guidelines for the beginning pianist in the quest of learning how to play the piano.

The long term view

For the novice, the thrill of fooling around at the piano will soon wear thin as he or she becomes aware of the obstacles. At that point it is necessary to decide how one should proceed and what ones goals and objectives are. What parents should understand is that their ongoing support, enthusiasm and participation for with their childs processes is utterly essential. Studies show that almost all musical prodigies have had  unlimited support and commitment from their parents that worked hand in hand with their extraordinary achievement.

The elderly beginner should forget about performance and simply realize that there is no other activity other than walking, breathing, sleeping and eating well that will be as therapeutically beneficial for their body, mind and soul. Playing the piano is a good therapy for arthritis and, boredom and mental deterioration. Reading skills, hand eye coordination, spatial thinking, achievement of goals and expression of inner sensibilities are just a few examples that regular practice and playing can result.

A set of clear objectives is essential for all levels of musician. Planning and constructive self evaluation is necessary even if one is taking lessons or receiving a qualified opinion or guidance from a teacher, on an ongoing basis.

It may sound like a no brainer but musical proficiency is linked to listening to music (music appreciation) and the ability mentally to hear music after the fact. To be able to hear music in ones minds eye is essential. Musical thinking is equivalent to the ordinary ability to rationalize, without which we would not be able to contemplate, conceive or accomplish anything.

To sum up this short thumbnail on the beginning requirements of learning the piano, at whichever level you are in music study and practice, you should listen as much as possible to quality music. If you hear this music going through your mind over and over again after the fact, be grateful. That is your musical memory. Your brain is working hard to process what you have heard or have played. What you do with this memory will be at the core of your future accomplishment
