I just learned a wonderful Italian saying: “Piano piano.”
According to my student Thomas, who is an Irishman living in Italy, “piano piano” means “little by little.”
It’s a perfect way of expressing the kind of learning we do at the piano, and I love that it actually contains the word “piano.” And not just once, but twice!
So… How do we best learn to play piano?
“Piano piano,” of course!
Enjoy the journey and “let the music flow!”
