Pianos Everywhere

Pianos Everywhere.  Is anyone playing?  What is the reason there so many unused and unplayed pianos in the U.S?  “Why are there so many unplayed pianos in the United States?




That’s the question composer and professional piano instructor Edward Weiss is asking. It’s not just pianos that are taking up living room space.  The number of unused electronic keyboards is just as staggering.

Edward Weiss Piano Teacher

Edward Weiss has been teaching people the joy of playing piano for well over 15 years, and he’s come up with his own reasons why vast numbers of these musical instruments are just gathering dust.

“The way I see it is that adults purchase pianos thinking they’ll go the classical route, and then give up because it’s just not satisfying. With electronic keyboards, they’re either given as gifts or aspiring young musicians soon lose interest and go on to other pursuits (like dating)!”

“Learning to play the piano becomes like work, not the pleasurable pastime people
thought it was going to be. Plus, let’s face it: Private piano instruction isn’t cheap!”
However, Edward has come up with his own novel solution.  Just teaching New Age Piano Improvisation over the internet.

<img src="http://www.adultpianolesson.com/wp-content/grand piano.jpg" alt="pianos everywhere">“The New Age style is perfect for anyone just wanting to have fun and make beautiful music.  I can whole-heartedly promise this: With my methods, I can have anyone both playing and composing their own piano music in less than 30 days. And since everything is online, the cost is just small pocket change a day.  So that’s less than a price of a single donut or cup of coffee.”

Edward’s method is enthusiastically endorsed by one of the grand masters of New Age Music – David Lanz, a Grammy nominated pianist with multiple platinum albums to his credit.

Pianos Everywhere

By simply going online, all your lessons are presented in easy to follow, frustration proof videos. You just look, listen and learn.  Then before you know it, you’re playing and composing music on your own.

So if you’re one of the 20 million whose pianos are being used as flower stands, take off those vases, dust off the keyboard and start making music… today!

Color Coding Your Piano Practice

Once you learn about color coding your piano practice, you might have a little more fun practicing and enjoy experiencing your brain responding to the varied colors on your music score.



First rule is to choose a specific color for a specific thing and stick to it.  For example, always use yellow to highlight dynamic markings and changes within the piece.  Maybe you could use green for tempo markings.  You get the idea.

Color Coding Your Piano Practice

If you have 2 different melodies or musical themes in your piece this technique works very well.  Use color to label musical elements such as Theme A.  Theme A (or the first melody line) will probably be both at the beginning of your sheet music as well as again after Theme B.  Labeling each recurrence of Theme A and Theme B also helps you realize which measures are exact repetitions of previous measures.

If you don’t want to use markers in your formal copy simply make a photo copy for your working copy and mark up it instead.  This is particularly effective for you if you are a visual learner.

 Using Color to Track Success Points

Try using color to track success points within each piece of music.  If you have been practicing Section A and just achieved your goal of playing it without errors, three times in a row from memory you have a Success Point.  Use a blue marker and create a circle at the beginning of Section A to represent that success.  You will quickly recognize it again as you use this same symbol and color in another piece for the same purpose.

Using this colored dot method you can quickly look at your piece as you are learning/memorizing it and see which colors are missing.  This is a great quick visual technique that will yield measurable results.

Not Wanting to Practice Piano

Not Wanting to Practice Piano

Not wanting to practice piano? Here are 3 Hot Tips to revitalize this largest practice road block of all!Not Wanting to Practice Piano?

Perhaps it has been two weeks of not wanting to practice piano for yourself or for someone in your family.  You are either giving yourself a hard time about it or the parents are giving the piano student a hard time.

Although you don’t want lessons to go away, perhaps it would be great if just the piano practice part went away.  Are you doomed to fail?  Absolutely not.


Practice Every Single Day?

There is no rule anywhere that says you have to practice every single day.  Actually, there is no scientific proof that musicians who practice nonstop are better musicians or performers.  You can simple switch to a schedule with every Tuesday off, for example.

Perhaps you would feel more comfortable taking every third day off from practice.  Whatever you decide to do with the time table is up to you and designing your own customized piano practice schedule is what make the difference.

Learning New Piano Pieces is Hard

Learning new piano pieces IS hard if you try to tackle the entire piece all at one.  Follow the steps below and you will change your attitude quickly about eating an elephant one bit at a time.

1.  Break your piece into sections based on the different themes or melodies, i.e. Theme A, Theme B, Return of Theme A, etc.

2.  Practice only Theme A the first 2-3 days doing hands separately ENTIRELY until you feel comfortable enough to put hands together.

3.  Always practice very slowly (at least half the tempo required) for the first week. Use your metronome and build up your speed only 10-20 beats per minute per week.

Example:  If your piece requires an Allegro tempo which is 80-120 clicks of the metronome per minutes, then set it for half of that tempo to begin your practice.  Gradually build up by +10 every several days.

 Repetition is Boring

Repetition IS BORING!  However, if you fine tune your ear to make every repetition a little better, you will soon find that this is not boring.  This is the making of a fine musician.
