Over a year ago, I hired Kerry to come on board to help students by email and phone. She was quickly promoted to handling many aspects of the website and editing video. After seeing the lessons and helping students for a few weeks, Kerry said that she would like to learn the piano. I recommended that she try HomeSchoolPiano lessons.Now, one year later, Kerry knows how to play 10 songs and she knows how to improvise at the piano. Learning 10 songs in a year is pretty common. However, knowing how to improvise after one year, using only online lessons, is remarkable.
In case you are not familiar with improvisation at the piano, this means that Kerry can sit down and “just play” something without needing music. She can read music too…but now she can also create her own music.
Before you think that this is only for advanced-level pianists, Kerry is an adult who has never played piano before in her life. She started over a year ago as an absolute beginner adult piano student!
This is important because it allows her to tap into her own creativity and piano greatness. This also means she can sit down and play the piano without needing music in front of her. If you’ve studied the piano before, you’ll know that this is a big deal. Too often a piano student who has studied for years is asked to sit and play something only to respond “I can’t. I don’t have my music with me.”
Learning to improvise gives a piano student to confidence to express themselves at the instrument -and- always have the ability to ‘sit and play’ whenever they want.
