When it comes time to work on our piano studies, we have 2 different approaches.
For beginners there are some exercises and drills to learn for practice.
For advanced students there are also exercises and drills to learn as a foundation for the lessons you will learn at home from time to time.
So what does it all mean?
There are a few basic techniques used for beginner to advanced level to work on the fundamentals to improve the quality and quality of your training.
What Are There For Beginners?
You should use small blocks and exercises – 2-5, 10-15, or even 30-60.
Once the blocks are used up, replace them with bigger blocks and exercise.
At the end, you will be able to put your practice on hold.
What Are There For Advanced Students?
You should increase the blocks you use – up to 10-20, 50-100 or 100-200.
You will be able to make larger and broader blocks as you do the exercises.
This will help in working with the piano more effectively.
In fact, we already see beginner musicians making large blocks and exercises in order to sharpen their ability on the piano, that’s for sure.
What Should There Be?
You should always be taking at least one lesson from the masters of the world.
At the beginning of your piano learning journey, the master is usually the biggest asset that you have in your hands during your journey.
So I suggest you get involved with them to understand how they approach their music and what they are planning to teach you.
Then when that is finished, go in search of those masters again while practicing the exercises.
Where Should You Begin?
For beginners, you should start with a home practice exercise.
However, don’t let that be your end goal.
After spending the first 2 weeks training with a teacher, try to get involved with the home practice exercises.
However, you have to take note that those exercises you are going to do are usually not the best ones for everyone.
So, keep this in mind as you practice with your teacher.
How Should I Start My Piano Teacher Program?
For us, the beginning program will differ depending on the level you want to learn.
As soon as you are able to do at least some basic piano exercises, start at the home exercises
