Can You Teach Yourself Piano?



One of the best ways for beginners to learn how to play piano or enhance their skills is by hiring a piano instructor. Many times, this option isn’t within our budgets causing us to become discouraged. If this happens to be the case, know that it is possible to learn how to play piano by yourself.

The first thing you want to do is learn some basic music theory knowledge by studying the notes, keys, and chords. Once you’ve done this, sit down at the piano or keyboard and familiarize yourself with it. Learn the different types of tones and where they are located while practicing your hand and finger placement.

After you can tell the difference between the tones move onto major keys. A piano book for beginners along with video tutorials found online can help you identify all major keys. When this step is accomplished, move onto the chords. Start with the basic chords and figure out where they’re located on your piano.

Learning how to play the piano is not an overnight process. It requires weeks, months, and years of practice. The length it takes you to learn depends on how committed you are. We recommend practicing every day for best results. You can make the process of teaching yourself piano easier by seeking resources online.

By searching the web, you can access a wide number of tutorials, music sheets, and advice for free! Learning how to play this musical instrument does not require you to spend a large amount of money or invest in expensive lessons. If you put your mind to it, you can learn all by yourself.
