I came from a musically inclined family. At the tender age of 5 I started going to a music school. I remember that very summer when I first showed my interest in music and wanted to learn how to read musical notes. My three older sisters were enrolled that summer, and I was really envious that they were going to music school. All of them were already on piano and violin lessons.
To say that it was not that easy to learn how to read musical notes is an understatement. But I persevered, because I couldn’t wait to get my little fingers on those piano keyboards. Boy, was I wrong! It turned out that that very first summer was not spent on piano chords. My ever dependable music teacher wanted to make sure, I started with the basics.
Looking back now, I wished that this online portal that I came across with: PlayPianoTips.com was already in place for my perusal at that time. I could have learned and get my fingers quicker on piano chords and played expressively.
Apropos, my husband is a frustrated pianist. He’s always wanted to learn how to play the piano. Now, he can absolutely try to get his hands on this long cherished obsession of his and learn a lot faster than I did with the conventional way. With PlayPianoTips.com’s help, I’d probably see him playing piano chords in no time and be great at piano improvisation concurrently. I must admit, I am not good at improvisation. I guess, I can also join him to acquire this skill.
