Are you looking for piano practice techniques that are effective and work? Here is a simple
formula for getting through that first stage and learning the notes of a piece super-effectively.
The best way to work with a new piece in this way, is to work one to two small sections per day. Learning the notes of a piano piece with the "formula" below, actually takes very little time, but is highly effective and intense!
However, it might feel really tiring.
That is why it is a good idea to practice like this for only a short time.
Then you can take a break or play and practice something else.
When learning a piano piece with proper piano practice techniques, you will build up security, knowledge and understanding of the piece faster.
Additional benefits: With the following method it will also be easier to memorize the piece later!
Now take each section through the following steps:
Please observe: Do not continue with a new part until all steps are completed, without any mistakes! On the other hand there is no need to ever go backwards or repeat any previous step!
This whole process might take you only about 10 minutes to do, but it is very intensive! By practicing in this way you will learn the piano notes very well, and you will not forget them easily.
If you feel up to it continue with the next part, but you can also with good conscience let it “rest” until the next day. It actually gets better by itself!
In the meantime; polish other pieces, practice technical exercises, scales, and so on. Each day of practice, you continue by connecting all the previous parts together.

I am interested in lessons, etc, for an electronic keyboard (Casio LK230). I am a true beginner---74-years-old and NO experience whatsoever. But always
