There are some mistakes beginners may make when learning the
piano. It is good to identify these mistakes so that your piano learning will
progress much faster :)
This is a common problem in some beginning pianists, as they
might not get used to the correct sitting position for playing the piano.
Correct sitting position is very important as it helps you
play comfortably with no tension.
Regular practices are an important practice tip if you want
to improve on your piano learning.
Regular practices not only allow your brain to remember the
piano skills constantly but also allow your hands to get used to the keys and
they will get better after every practice.
Irregular practices will only make your piano learning
remain stagnant, as you might have to keep repeating what you learn previously
because you might already forgotten about it.
Practicing the skills
you already mastered
Many beginners like practicing what they are very good or
familiar in and feel good with their progress in perfecting that particular
However, they will only make progress with the familiar
skills. There are many more challenging skills out there to play the piano. To
progress even more with your piano learning, it is good to explore and master
other different skills.
Normally, there is specific fingering to be followed when
you play on the piano. Incorrect fingering does produce the same music, but it
might be actually be more difficult and uncomfortable to play on the piano.
Practicing too fast
Practicing too fast prevents you from identifying your
mistakes in your piano skills.
It is important to go slow first so that you can hear every
note properly so as to identify the weak spots and practice more on them.
Keep looking at your
hands when playing
It is advisable to learn not to look at your hands too much
when you play. This might cause mistakes when playing a song, as you are unable
to concentrate on the music sheet.
It is difficult to master that from the start, regular
practices therefore play an important role to master that skill.
