Piano lessons have a reputation for being boring, frustrating, and making students feel worse about themselves than when they started.
Students quit after a short period of time, or persist and develop injuries or serious anxieties around playing.
I think this is a problem, and I have an approach to learning that is a bit different. I believe the main reason we struggle with playing (at all levels, from beginner to professional), is because we get in our own way, and do not allow our brains to learn the way they know how. Our minds, in an effort to help us, convince us that we are on the right path.
And sadly, we lack awareness of all of this.
With the help of mindfulness skills and a deep understanding of the process of piano playing, I think we can find a better way.
Learn how to:
- Use your body to play the piano easily and comfortably.
- Read music fluently with confidence and understanding.
- Connect with the basics of music such as melody, harmony, and rhythm, in a way that makes sense and allows for individual expression.
- Get the most results out of the least amount of practice time.
