To learn how to play piano might be the best thing you have ever done in your life! It does not matter if you belong to those who have always been longing to try but never really started, or if you just recently just felt like you would like to learn this instrument. My advice to you is -Just do it! You have nothing to lose – but a lot to gain, playing the piano!
If you hesitate…here comes 9 reasons why you should start to play the piano!
1: Learning how to play the piano is giving you joy for a lifetime.
So many things in life are just for a short period of time, lasting for some years, but when you get older you can’t do it. But if you know how to play the piano, you can do it no matter age!
2: It is easy to learn how to play piano!
What I mean by this is that there are many ways of learning today. You can take private lessons with a teacher, but maybe even more convenient – you can take advantage of lot’s of YouTube videos or join online teaching programs that will help you in a great way!
3: Playing the piano is for sharing
As soon as you can play your first song, and that will take just a little time if you learn the fast way, you can share it with your family and friends and you can experience the joy of music together. Not many things are perfect for sharing with small children as well as elderly people, but playing the piano is! And you might inspire them to start learning as well!
4: It is not expensive!
To buy a piano training book does not cost that much, and even the online piano programs out there is very affordable. With the Pianoforall program, you will get both audio files so you can listen to sounds but also video instructions that will tell you exactly how to play. It also includes several piano books for quick learning. And all to the cost of less than what it cost to take your family to a restaurant for one night!
5: Piano is a stand-alone instrument!
When you play the piano you do not need some extra help with the accompaniment like you would if you play other instruments like violin, saxophone etc. With the piano, you can both play the melody line and accompany which means you can always play solo and it will sound great!
6. Piano is “easy” to start with
Well, of course, it can be hard to learn how to play piano, especially if you want to become really good at it, but in one way it is very easy. Think about it, sit at the piano and put your finger on the keyboard and listen…..It sounds good from the beginning, right? The piano has ready-made pitches which mean that you depress a key and it makes a sound. Compare that with trying to get a nice tone from the violin, or try to learn nice sounds on the guitar – it will take a long time to practice before you even get a nice sound!
But with the piano you can always learn your first song playing with just one finger and it sounds nice from the start! That is amazing!
7: You will always learn new piano pieces!
There are always new songs, musical pieces that you can learn and play. And there will be a lot of different styles for you to try out playing the piano. You can play classical music, rock music, romantic songs, blues and many, many other styles. And you can easily get yourself a new piano sheet or get inspired to play the latest hit music…. There is no end of possibilities for the one who have decided to learn to play the piano!
8: You can give your music to other people
We all know how music is an important part of our well-being. It is a vital part of our lives and need for us to feel good. When you play the piano you can always touch people on an emotional level, and give them the deepest satisfaction!
I have been playing the piano for many yes now, and as soon as I perform somewhere, people are always thankful and appreciative. I can feel that I have given them something important, a feeling that only music can give.
9: Music binds people together.
If you play the piano you can play a simple song and your friends and family can sing with you. This is a classic way of entertaining families and binds you all together. We all want to create memories and this is a great way and has been for many generations.
These are a few reasons why you should learn how to play piano. So do not wait any longer, just start the journey now and take the learning in your own time. The most important thing when to learn to play the piano is to remember to have fun! Every day when you sit at the piano you can just enjoy the moment and realize that you actually are a musician!
