#11 How to learn a new song for any piano, guitar, bass or drum set.
This lesson teaches you how to learn a new song quickly and efficiently.
When I started this channel in 2006, I decided NOT to teach song tutorials, since there was no viable way for me to teach every possible piece by myself and still be sane. My approach to this channel is to teach you the skills and concepts of piano so you can grow as a musician and learn any piece you wish. But both you and I know that the main reason we put so much hard work into learning the concepts of piano is so that we can play pieces for ourselves and possibly others.
Not being able to teach concepts AND pieces to you guys always bothered me… I wanted a way to offer a good solution to learning pieces online in an interactive way. In 2014, I met some guys from Berlin, Germany who founded a piano learning company called ‘Flowkey’, and when they showed me their demo, I knew in 1 second that this is exactly what I had been looking for you guys to learn pieces on your own using technology.
Since we met, we’ve been talking about how we can make online piano education better and decided to collaborate together. I always want to be straight with you guys, they have a free and pro version, if you decide to pay for the pro version using the link below, as a way of saying thanks, Flowkey will share a part of what you pay to Flowkey with me for the lifetime of your account. If you know me, then you know I wouldn’t suggest Flowkey unless I truly thought they’re offering something really helpful to you, as I’ve been offered to do ads and partnerships many times, but didn’t see any value for you guys in those offers. Flowkey offers real value by offering a way to learn pieces interactively.
The solution I’ve been looking for learning pieces online finally exists.
Once you see it for yourself, you’ll know why I think it’s worth your time, check out Flowkey here: http://goo.gl/DKGErd
It’s EASY to learn a new song with this method.
1x slow 2x fast 1x slow 2x fast 1x slow
Now repeat the notes in your mind in the order you played them.
Tada! Now you’re on your way to learning a new song VERY quickly!
Update 11/20/2009=-=- I’ve been made aware that there is a free book available which has the same ideas. I think it would make interesting study material: http://www.pianopractice.org
