How to use the intact piano the ivories - music


There are 88 keys on the piano keyboard. Most pianists use about 1/3 of this digit most of the time. Why?

Well, if you're in performance sheet music, the come back with lies in how the composer used the piano. If you're creating your own music, the key lies in experimenting with the possibilities.

Now, most of my own music is played near the central point of the keyboard. It's not deliberate that way but this is the area of the piano I as expected be pulled towards when meeting down to play. Of course, I do and have used most notes existing on the piano and it would be a shame not to. But I allow the music to tell me where it wants to go. If I sit down with a fated agenda to play high notes, then I am not listening to my intuition.

Although I have to admit that in Class 5: "Winter Scene" I sought after to construct a crisp bleak sound so I in progress added up the piano with the left hand and played advanced catalog notes in my right. But most times, I will let my feeling guide me and 9 times out of 10 begin at the average of the keyboard.

There is nobody wrong or uncreative about this at all. In fact, it doesn't especially be important where you begin as once started, the heart and mind work at once as one bringing you the ideal music. It is the only true music that could come out of you as you snoop to what your heart wants to play. If you play a few bass notes to begin with fine. Want to start at the high end of the piano, OK.

The key here is authenticity. Some compositions and improvisations sound contrived since they were - that is they were belief up. There certainly is nil wrong per se with this accost - as long as you let the music guide you. For example, you may choose you want to do as I did and conceive a a variety of mood piece. However, once you get the all-purpose idea for the music, let it guide you to where it wants to go - that is, listen, listen, snoop for what is appearance next. This attempt never fails and will most continually yield good results.
