Are you looking for piano practice techniques that are effective and give results?
Here is a simple
formula for getting through that first stage of learning the notes in a piece, super-effectively!
The best way to work with a new piece effectively, is to work with one to two small sections per day.
Learning the notes of a piano piece with the "formula" I will show you below. actually takes very little time, but is highly effective and also intense!
However, it might also 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 effective piano practice techniques,
you will build up security, knowledge and understanding of the piece
Additional benefits: With the following method it will also be easier to memorize the piece later!
Now drill each section with the following 10 steps:
Please note: Don't continue with a new section of the piece 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 letting your brain work on it by "itself"!
In the meantime; polish other pieces, practice technical exercises, scales, and so on. Each day of practice, you'll continue by connecting all the previously learned parts together.
