Entering a virtuous cycle with our piano playing

Hey everyone!

I’m having the time of my life making the Rock Piano for Beginners Workout videos this month, and I’m delighted that many of you are coming along for the ride.

We’re only halfway through the month, and it’s gratifying to hear how this series is helping with hand independence and getting players to improvise with a greater ease and sense of flow.

One pianist, Stephen, left a comment today that says it better than I can:

“Bite-size chunks and lots of practicing what you can actually manage to do, not what you can not quite manage to do. It seems simple, but it is really helping. Starting to occasionally feel like the hands are working with rather than against each other.”

Thanks, Stephen, and the wonderful thing is that it’s possible to make more progress in 15 days than might have occurred in a previous year or so, simply by working in the right way. And… having fun while we’re doing it!

For me, this is the key. Working in the right way and having fun at the same time. When we do this, we enter into a virtuous cycle with our music and find it to be more fulfilling than we may have previously experienced.

If you’ve been following the series, here’s today’s video:
