Piano Practice That Produces Results!

When I mention piano practice, it usually gets most students of the instrument to cringe a little...especially adults who took lessons as a kid and are thinking about starting piano lessons again

The memories, good or bad, inevitably start to resurface. If you had a bad experience with the piano at some point in your life, that doesn't mean that the next experience has to be a negative one as well.

  • Learning piano can be enjoyable and practice doesn't have to be boring and tedious. Of course, this issue may still exist and continue to be a mental stumbling block for many adults who really want to play the piano.

So my first goal as a piano instructor is to teach you how to develop an effective practice routine that can be accomplished in a very short amount of time each day. To do that I have to teach you my 1-Minute-A-Day Practice Technique.

If you use my technique with my online audio and video piano lessons, you will see dramatic progress. The chord method is a very easy method to learn, but it still requires consistent effort. I'll show you how to generate effective results in just 8 to 10 minutes a day.

Overcoming Obstacles

The biggest obstacle for most students is finding time to practice. Many students believe that a productive practice session should involve at least 30 minutes or more of concentrated playing time.

  • On the surface that sounds logical, but the problem with this thought process is that most students really don't have 30 minutes to devote to practice, (especially many adult piano students), so their practice is inconsistent at best.

This inconsistency goes on day after day, and before you know it, the lessons and the dream of playing the piano come to a screeching halt.

With my 1-minute-a-day practice technique, all you have to do is commit to sitting down at the piano for 1 minute a day for the next 21 days.

Why 21 Days?

It takes 21 days to develop a new habit. Since finding 30 minutes a day is nearly impossible for most students, you really only need to find a small amount of time...let's say, 1 minute a day.

I'm absolutely sure that 99.9 percent of the people reading this can find one minute a day for the next 21 days.

  • Of course, what you'll discover in a very short period of time is that one minute will turn into five minutes or ten minutes, and before you know it, you've achieved a good amount of productive practice time.

You see, one minute isn't a difficult obstacle for anyone to overcome. Anyone who really wants to learn to play the piano can find 1 minute a day.

Now, if you were learning the traditional way of playing piano, then my 1-minute technique wouldn't even make a dent, but what I'm suggesting is that you learn chord style piano.

Chord Style Piano, (a.k.a. - the chord method), is the easiest way to learn piano on the planet, and 10 minutes of daily practice with the chord method is like an hour of practice with traditional piano instruction.

So take my advice and get started today. What you could be playing in the next 3 to 6 months will absolutely blow you mind. Enjoy!

P.P.S. - This is a great ear and finger training exercise for beginners and intermediate students.
