( “Senorita” by Justin Timberlake) – Hi, YouTube, this is Julian Bradley. Today I’m going to talk about ear train. So I’ve got some advice which will speed up the process.

How to Start Piano Lessons for Pre-School Aged Children

Hi. Therefore welcomed The Piano Podcast. I’m Mario Ajero. In this video, I want to show some forte-piano pieces that you could teach to young preschool children as young as age three to prepare them for traditional piano lessons. I’m hoping this video is useful to both professional piano teachers as well as mothers who only want to give their young children a head start on piano lessons. One of the first activities that you can actually do at the keyboard is to teach your kids that the piano shall be made available in two black key and three black keys. Can you play two black keys like this? Once infants can find the two black keys, you can do short rhythmic patterns alternating between the two black keys like this one...

First Song – Piano Lesson 1 – Hoffman Academy

Hello and accepted. I’m Joseph Hoffman, and today we’re going to be learning about some piano basics, and by the end of this lesson, you’ll be playing your first carol on the forte-piano.

These situations you propagandize are “ve called the” keys, and they come in precisely two simple shades, black and white, and the further you go to the left the lowering the phone they constitute.

Find any key in the high-pitched neighbourhood of your piano and play video games each key one at a time mov...

Larry Goldings – Jazz Organ Lesson 1

When you’re playing organ, you can be more orchestral, and they are able to have substance moving around that only adds to the texture of what’s going on, you know, in the band. You take your 9th ambiance and you move it down to the root, to the major 7, to the dominant 7, and you SUS it, and you resolve that with the 9 or the b9, you did the same happen here. The object is, I’m not just plotting down the chords, chord to chord, chord to chord, chord to chord. I want to be very economic in how I do it, so let’s look at this G child. Db9, I’m not moving anywhere. I want to harmonize this E, but I don’t want it to sound pedestrian, you are familiar, so what do I do? I go…
