According to our Melodica teacher student do four major our mistakes when learning to play the piano. She explains her story and say that one of the most important thing that we ignore while learning piano is we skip all the old mistakes. At starting I just ignore a lot of things and I thought they are just unnecessary. Eventually, I got some bad habits that were really hard to get rid of in future.
Anyways, my suggestion is don’t do the same mistake I did but hopefully you take care of them.
First of all I didn’t give enough attention regarding how to sit while using a piano. However, now I realize that a posture or sitting method is one of the important things. Sitting too low or too high or even too far and too close may create lots of problems like backaches.
This is very easy to avoid all these mistakes if you take a few seconds to correct this issue. The first thing to note is to keep both of your feet parallel on the ground and keep in a comfortable position so that you will be able to balance a book or crown on your head.
The other mistake that I used to do is to learn as much as possible in one lesson or session; that usually ended with cramped fingers and also frustration.
In starting this is adequate to practice just for 10 minutes daily. Your muscles need to learn the new movements which is quite a tough job. Short practice daily is better that the long practice weekly.
Choosing the wrong fingering
Another big mistake that I didn’t pay enough attention to was the fingering. I wanted to learn as soon as possible and thus I used wrong fingers.
So, the point is when you are starting any new piece of thing, first try to learn which finger will used for which notes. So follow your pianist teachers as they have spent a lot of time while practicing a piano.
Putting the keyboard in a remote corner
May be you have heard the saying “Out of sight, out of mind” it also applies on piano too. So try to use your keyboard and don’t just put in the warddrobes or some cramped corners.
Keep your keyboard in a visible place where you can see it and try to make a separated place for your keyboard.
Hopefully, these steps will help you with a great journey of playing piano. If you are keen to learn more about music and dance try to visit our blog.
