I'm listening to the first one, and am really enjoying it. How long have you been playing piano? You had no instruction whatsoever? How did you go about it?

Hi keystring
I studied functional piano when I was bass guitar student, the instruction was very basic, oriented for harmony, 5 years ago. After that did not play piano until July of this year when I bought the privia, I been studying without a teacher, but my study is at least 4 hours a day or more.

I'm new to playing piano.
Frankly, to me, this playing sounds GENIUS.
Youíve raised my ambitions, although itíd probably take me quite some time to even get near your proficiency,. But Iím going to try.
I appreciate your taste and talent.


Cheers!!!

One of the things that caught my attention was the relaxed, easy, unstrained way in which your hands moved. That made me ask. I'm thinking that in this "functional piano" you were given some basic good form and way of moving, or your teacher moved well and you absorbed it. I've formed the belief that it's best of we start with a good foundation of some basic things, so our playing grows out of it. If we don't we end up straining, and can't produce the sounds we hear in our heads. I started self-taught and have had to go back and get these things, so I tend to notice "ease".

Your playing was clean and musical - one can hear the musical background and training. I liked the way you brought out things (voices) and the expression.

How are you with pedal? I thought I heard some gaps here and there. I've been told that pedal often is not taught well or not taught, and also that (quoting Rubinstein?) that pedal is the soul of the piano.

We've talked sometimes about multiple instruments, and the influence one instrument might have on another. Do you think that bass guitar has had any influence on your piano playing?

Just finished listening to Clair de Lune, that was absolutely STUNNING for a relative beginner. As Keystring said, you look so relaxed and the music flows really nicely. Keep doing what you're doing, it's working!


Inspired by Einaudi and Tiersen.

You deserve an acoustic piano. I don't have any specific advice to give, but I'm very impressed with the way you sound. It's just so effortless and lovely! Keep playing! And if you can, do try to get an acoustic instrument. It will serve you well.

Thanks for the videos smile

Very nice playing, but I think there's so much more that you can do. I see some habits that have arisen from playing on a digital and not having lessons: stiffness in your hand position, and a bit too much reliance upon the pedal to sustain for you. There are some timing inaccuracies also (I just listened to the Debussy). These things hold back your playing musically.

You are obviously a fine musician, and I encourage you to take lessons so that you can overcome these limitations. What are your goals in piano?

Thanx for your comments, I have some problems with pedal when the notes are difficult, i lost concentration. In my functional piano classes, i learned some things about pedal, but not so much, i'll try to improve it.

Play bass helped me a lot to play piano, in technics (muscle, resistence and speed), to read sheets, theoric things, maybe in musicality, im not sure, i wanted learn play piano because is too different to bass, in many aspects, for me, bass and piano are 2 different worlds.

Thanks for your comments, I would like to take piano lessons to improve everything you say, but I can not for the moment, my economic situation does not allow me, however, I would like to optimize my pianistic interpretation.

I wont take classes next year if things work out well for me, for now I can do?
regards
