4 Things Successful Piano Players Do

Lisa Witt - Aug 31, 2018

Are you serious about learning to play the piano? I have good news. You can be amazing at the piano and it's not nearly as difficult or as hard to achieve as you may think. Here are 4 things that successful piano players do. Follow these steps and you will be on your way to greatness.


1) Consistency


You don’t have to practice 3 hours a day to become great at the piano quickly. But you DO have to practice consistently. Make practice happen no matter what at least 5 days a week. Consistency builds habits and practicing piano is a great habit to have, so get behind those keys. If you're busy, do a shorter practice! The main point is that you still practice. If you are truly passionate about learning to play, you will make time.


2) Technique


The best piano players have amazing technique. Practicing scales, arpeggios, triads and dexterity exercises in all the keys may seem repetitive and restricting at times but these things will actually give you the freedom to play anything you want.


3) Connect


I cannot stress how important this is. The musical community can be your lifeline. It's a place where you draw inspiration, support, and accountability. Make connections with other musicians. Join a band, participate in jam sessions, ask for feedback from your musical friends and peers. This will enrich your life and your playing so much.


4) Enjoy


If you want to play in a bad, you don’t want to be perfecting a repertoire of Bach...  You need to learn to chord and play by ear. Want to perform with an orchestra? Well, then you need to be playing those crazy Bach songs. See what I mean? Make sure that the music and skills you are developing are in alignment with what you want to be playing in the first place. Know what you love, and stick to it! Play for the joy of playing, my friends, and you will ever want to stop!
