Understanding the learning process and your development as a pianist

As a piano teacher, I’ve become more and more fascinated with the learning process. I guess I’ve always been fascinated with it, but over time it’s grown to almost an obsession because I can hear someone play piano and immediately understand what they need to do in order to play piano better. And this directly involves how they learn piano.

I spent decades practicing piano in an ineffective way. Yes, I practiced a lot and enjoyed every minute of it, but if I knew then what I know now about how to practice, I would have improved exponentially faster during my first two decades playing the piano.

Take a moment and think about how you practice piano. Then ask yourself an important follow-up question: “Am I practicing piano in a way that will help me play at a higher level next year?”

That’s the key question, and it deserves some reflection and deep thought. It’s a little different for each person, and when you truly understand how you learn in the best way, you’ll improve exponentially. Find the answer, and you’re on your way!
