Piano Playing Q & A

Hello and thank you for offering services to answer questions!

I have been on and off my piano practicing and am trying to stick with a system to practice well.

The first, how fast do we need to be when practicing scales?

Second, would this practice plan of mine be well enough to better my skills?:

Third, When is the best time to learn how to play by ear?

Thank you, any advice and recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Sheet Music of the Month

Have you ever played something by Eric Satie?

His meditative and calm "Gymnopedies" are not really for the beginner pianist.

But if you have played for a while and can read music, the first "Gymnopedie" is a piece that is not extremely hard to learn.

And it's very relaxing while you're learning it!
Get free sheet music and read more about how to practice Eric Satie's Gymnopedie here.
