Pianopig has some decent tips, if you can stand looking at the guy...


Casio PX-S3000
Nope, no issues with it at all.
Took lessons from 1960 to 1969, stopped at age 16.
Started again in July 2020 at age 67. Lots more fun now!

I agree with all the above! Learnt so much by following them.

I also have to mention Nahre Sol, she is a great educator too, even though she's more of a pianist than a teacher. And masterclasses, in general, are great too, always something new to learn from them.


I've been playing the piano since Jan '18.
More recently, I passed Grade 6 with distinction and plan to take Grade 7 in late 2021.

I am documenting my progress, recitals and experiences of learning how to play the piano as an adult on my YouTube channel.

I'm just now doing a deep dive into the blues.
I quite like Christian Fuchus' channel. He's mad as a box of frogs but I've learned lots from his tutorials and I've bought some of his arrangements which are playable for me, not least of all with help from his twinned videos.

I love Graham Fitch, he does such a good job in explaining things. But apart from that, yea that and Pianote is really solid already when it comes to advice.

In addition to the above, I thought some of the videos by Sally Christian were good.

Pianiste Magazine has helped me figure a few pieces out:

Pianiste Magazine

It's in French, which I was never very good at, but I've found it quite educational none the less.

Piano TV is my favorite, she gets to the point and makes it fun to watch. Any time I google something piano I love when she has a video for it!

http://deniszhdanov.com/ I just discovered on a thread few days ago from @Dogperson and the little I have watched I like so far.

I know many love Josh Wright I'm sure is great but I can't watch his videos so much fluff and jargon of talking on and on and I get a little sense of arrogance too.

If you like jazz, Kent Hewitt has some fantastic videos (and a book which I have not yet purchased). This goes from late beginner up.

Any recommendations specifically on mechanics? (wrist, finger, forearm positioning, movement, etc.). Fitch has one on wrist movement that looked good.

I just watched this from Graham Fitch:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLCy4j1FSa4

and that's what I'm looking for. None of my piano teachers have ever talked about mechanics like this. They just wanted the right notes. Well, maybe that's because I was a beginner, but I'm also a believer in good fundamentals.

Thanks for the heads up, I'd never heard of him before and you're right he's a nutcase.
Great lessons for the blues and makes me laugh as well.
