How To Choose Play Piano Online Lessons


This is a provocative but hilarious play piano article by Ron Worthy, the well respected piano teacher, music educator, songwriter and performer. Happy reading.

Contrary to what most people think, no one is ever too old to start learning how to play the piano and this is an undispted fact.

The awful headache is that there are so many piano instruction programs online today that it gets very confusing and frustrating for you when you are looking for the best piano lessons from good teachers.

It is my gleeful intention that this article will shed some light into your search to find the most appropriate piano courses for your specific needs and become the maestro you want to be.

Which Piano Playing Style?

But firstly, I strongly suggest that you do some sort of soul searching to determine what style and genre of music you would like to play. There are so many styles of music and at this stage in your life, you should only focus on the style or genre of music that you really enjoy. It is definitely easier and much more fun to learn something which you enjoy, don't you think so? 

The next step is to decide on how much time you want to spend learning how to play the piano. If you are only concerned with playing with the least amount of time, mental and physical efforts, then I seriously advise that you should purchase an inexpensive keyboard that offers instrumental accompaniment features. You do not need to take piano lessons for this type of recreational pursuit and enjoyment.

These electronic keyboards usually come with a instructional manual that shows you how to play very easy and simple chord works. Furthermore, the electronic keyboards also include accompaniment styles, such as Rock, Pop, Jazz, Polka, Waltz, Tango, Bossa Nova and what not.

In fact, some keyboards actually guide you through the whole learning process by providing keys that "light up" like Christmas trees to help you land on the correct notes! Sounds more like an ...ahem... adult toy rather than a musical instrument, don't you think so?

If you are seriously interested in learning how to make beautiful music on the piano and can consistently set aside at least 20 to 30 minutes everyday  day to practice, then you should definitely continue your search for the play piano online program that is tailored to your specific needs and music style.

What I am going to say next may be going to raise the temperatures of some people, but I will say it anyway! Here it goes! The Majority of Piano Review Sites Are Not Credible! Yup, I just said that. Before you holler at me, please let me explain why did I say that. I am sure you would like to know the reasons, right?

Always remember that most, if not all "review sites" are designed to do only one thing and that is to make money from the web sites they are reviewing. As savvy business and marketing people, they are affiliates of all the sites being reviewed. That means that no matter which reviewed site you decide to make a purchase from, the reviewers make a commission out of your purchase..

Their ultimate objective is to maximize the return on their investment (ROI) so that whatever site makes them the most money, they will declare them to be the "best choice." Get the picture so far?

My very own piano playing program sites have been in number one positions on quite a number of review sites and as soon as another site allows them to make more money, my site is instantly ranked lower by the reviewers.

So, it is not the quality of the piano lessons that gets good reviews but the amount the reviewers are paid. It is just plain old capitalist business world out there.

So, how do you choose a good online piano lesson? Well, just pay close attention to web sites that appear in the "organic" rankings and not those on the "sponsored links" on the right side of a search engine page. Affiliates marketers and website owners pay search engines for those sponsored advertisements through "Pay Per Click" advertisement services.

Those paid advertisements are just screaming "PICK ME UP!" And people just pick them up without knowing those are paid advertisements and not natural organic search engines rankings. 

A passionate, credible and competent piano teacher will have well written articles on piano pedagogy. You can just simply google the piano teacher's name to determine if the particular teacher has written quality articles to show his/her competency and proficiency on the subject. You may start off with my name, Ron Worthy…grinz…heh heh.

One of the most difficult challenge in your piano playing quest will be your ability to play in time. You can do it. All you need to do is just remember to count out loud at the beginning of a piece of music that you are playing.

Once your body starts to "feel" the pulse and rythm of the music, then you can dispense with the verbal counting altogether and feel the rythm.

A less difficult challenge is to discipline yourself to practice slowly. All professional pianists practice slowly when learning a new pattern, if not, you will very likely forget the material you have practiced by tomorrow, which by then you have to start all over again.

Anyone can learn to play any style of piano music they so wish to. Just make sure you set aside some time to practice consistently. All it takes is just about 20 to 30 minutes to do that.

If you are serious about becoming a good pianist, then you should only concentrate on the style of music you want to play, and do not give up! No one ever fails, they failed only on the day they give up!

You can do it, and I know you can because my students are achieving great piano playing success everyday, worldwide!

To your piano playing success,
