Welcome Bianka

As you are a beginner why not say hello over on the Adult Beginners Forum? Even if you are not an adult you will get a welcome and advice if you want it.

Hi Biia and welcome to the forums! I'm going to move this thread to the Adult Beginners Forum as I think it might be more appropriate there.

And you'll be welcome there even if you don't consider yourself to be an adult or a beginner laugh

Welcome again and I hope you enjoy your stay!

Welcome to the world of piano, and of course, welcome to the pianoworld forum smile Learning to play the piano well can take a very long time, and there will be many difficult challenges to overcome. Many people try to learn but get frustrated and quit when it gets difficult. But for those who keep going until they actually learn -- they often discover that playing the piano beautifully is something that will give them great happiness. I hope that you can keep learning until you find the joy that playing the piano can bring. Do you have a teacher? or are you trying to learn on your own? In any case, I wish you great success in your piano journey.

Warm Regards

Welcome aboard, Bianka. Playing piano is a wonderful thing! As you peruse the ABF threads, you will notice a common theme: there are no shortcuts in piano! Progress is incremental as each little skill builds upon the other. And you will find most of us recommending a teacher. A teacher will get you there sooner, and with less frustration.


So much music and so little time!

Hahaha....That seems slightly severe. wink Learning with a good teacher is definitely better if you can manage it. But not everyone has access to a good teacher, or can afford one (due to financial or time constraints). There are several people on this forum who are self taught, or teaching themselves. it's not ideal, but it can be done.

The one general advice that I can give you is that the hardest part of learning to play piano is learning how to relax while you're playing. When your muscles get tense, it can reduce your ability to play, or even worse lead to some pretty bad injuries. So play close attention to your technique and focus on relaxation. Actively try to find places where you have tension....maybe you tend to "wing" your elbows out o the side, maybe you tend to raise your shoulders, maybe you hold your hands tightly and tensely. Maybe your pinky tends to stick up in the the air when you press down the other fingers, etc... At the beginning go very slow and really work on playing in a relaxed fashion. you want to use only the muscles needed for each movement, and no other muscles.

relax relax relax...

and good luck! smile

Hi Bianka

As you are self learning, I would encourage you to read C Chang's book on piano practice. It is quite lengthy, so reading it one go would be taxing. It is, however, extremely useful.

http://www.pianofundamentals.com/book/en/chapter_1

Don't take everything he says as absolutely true, but try out his suggestions. It has helped me immensely to make my practice more efficient and productive and also correct many mistakes that I used to make when I started out.

Good luck on your journey grin
