Beginner to Advanced Pianist

06 Sep 2023

Piano learning is a challenging task it requires time and effort every day. Most people spend several years studying the fundamentals and continue improving their talents throughout their lifetimes. The process is ongoing, and you’re never truly done learning. Becoming a skilled pianist is a challenging journey with ups and downs. Music takes time to settle in your understanding. If you set specific timelines for your goals, be ready to adjust them as needed.

Starting as a Beginner Pianist

When you begin your piano journey, it might be challenging. You’ll see outstanding pianists online playing songs you wish you could play. It’s normal to feel like you’re not improving much. But remember, learning the piano is like the saying, “Great things take time.” As a beginner, you’ll face challenges like finger placement, technique, dynamics, and using the sustain pedal.

Learn from the Mistakes

In the beginning, there are some common mistakes. One is using straight fingers instead of slightly bending them. Also, beginners often use the sustain pedal too much, creating a mixed sound. Just like your voice might sound strange when recorded, we don’t always realize how we sound while playing. This pedal overuse happens because it can hide errors. While it can make a warm sound, using it during chord changes can lead to problems.

Things to focus

● Learn the Basics of notes and how to use them to create music.

● Learn How to use Pedals, Don’t use the pedal too much, and Have control of the pedals

● Using the right fingers and techniques is important. Keep your fingers slightly bent for better playing.

Move To Intermediate Level

Reaching the intermediate level takes practice. Piano players have developed their ears to the point that they can learn easy songs by ear. Musicians of various genres can benefit greatly from this kind of education. It could be better for some people to learn music just by ear or through sheet music. If you want to become a well-rounded musician, trying both forms of learning is best. The intermediate level sees a great increase in technique and fingering. Pianists begin to comprehend the tucked thumb and other fingering strategies. The thumb can be tucked under other fingers to provide pianists more freedom to play upward or downward. Now, you can read sheet music, understand basic music theory, and play major and minor chords. Read beginner and some intermediate sheet music.

Even though you’re making progress, there’s more to learn. With basic chords and sheet music knowledge, you can learn in various ways, like using tutorials, chord sheets, or learning by ear. Now, you can train your ears to learn simple songs by listening. This helps all musicians. You start understanding finger techniques and how to use your thumb better. Playing becomes more natural. Learning new songs also becomes easier.

Things To Focus

● Learn More about music theory.

● Try to play more than ten songs.

● Improve finger placement and control.

Advanced Level

Becoming an advanced pianist takes years of practice and a love for the instrument. The advanced level signifies the top of a pianist’s career. Years of focused work and a solid connection to music have resulted in outstanding skill and profound artistry. Maestros have a large and broad repertoire, seamlessly mixing technical skill with emotional depth. They know the piano’s nuances, allowing them to portray complex emotions through their playing. At this point, pianists transcend the realm of playing notes and become conduits for profound musical experiences. Music, possess excellent technique and are well-versed in music theory. A beginner may need several years to advance to this level. Years of diligent practice and a passion for the instrument are required to reach this level. 

Things To Focus

● Read complex sheet music.

● Understand advanced music theory.

● Have a vast collection of mastered songs.

● Play with precision and emotion.

● Try to handle various scales.

Advanced players don’t just play notes. They make each note unique with emotions. They also see music as passages and phrases, not just single notes. This helps them express themselves better and remember longer pieces. They can learn quickly because of their efficient practice methods.

Mastering the piano is a continuous journey of growth. From the beginning to advanced stages, challenges and achievements shape your progress. Every note played is a part of your pursuit of mastery, creating a language of melodies and feelings.
