Never taken piano lessons before? Does your piano playing experience consist of nothing more than “plinking” a few keys on a piano keyboard without knowing what their names were or what you were even doing? Do you feel that actually making music at the piano (or keyboard) is a far-fetched idea for you, an accomplishment that you would only be capable of after practicing long, hard, tedious hours following the instructions from your teacher for months… and months… and perhaps years?
Well, you’re not alone. Lots of people think like that. Their thoughts serve as “smoke screens” and are the only things that get in the way of their actually allowing themselves to explore their musical potential (you have lots of it, you know). The negative thoughts that deter you from giving yourself permission to actually see what you are capable of are just that – thoughts. Nothing more.
What if you put yourself in touch with a piano teacher who proved that negative kind of thinking was all wrong? What if you were able to prove to yourself that creating music was something you were capable of doing after only your first lesson?
The truth is: it’s possible. It’s not only possible but it’s happening on a regular basis with others. That’s right, with the proper guidance, you can be making music rather quickly. The old school of thought that it takes painstaking efforts to be able to do so is simply an idea that’s been sold for way too long. Sure, the more time and effort you put into something, the more competent you get at it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the freedom of musical expression right from the start. A few simple requirements are: You sincerely want to have fun making music, you are open to a new way of learning, you have at least a hint of a sense of humor, and you are willing to learn in a fun, relaxed environment that encourages and promotes the idea of you just being yourself as you explore what really is possible for you.
Given the right approach, you can quickly learn that “chewing and digesting” a few simple piano playing strategies that are within the reach of even the earliest beginner can be conducive to your realizing that you don’t have to “know it all” in order to have fun at the piano. You are about to experience this for yourself. It doesn’t matter if you are an adult (any age) or have a youngster that you want to get involved with music. Of course, you have to make the first move. You have to be able to say to yourself, “Yes, maybe it really is possible” and take the initiative. Why not give it a go? You can be having fun making music soon – as little as a week from now. It’s your deal…
