Creative Piano Lessons for the Absolute Beginner
So, you've been thinking about taking piano lessons. And you're a beginner. You probably think you'll begin your piano lessons studies with note-reading and triads. And you'd be right!
Most piano teachers begin their students out on some obscure method book that drags out the teaching process. This makes your piano teacher rich and you a much poorer piano player.
You may be thinking there's a better way to learn piano. And you'd be right again! Listen to this. What if there was a method? a way to play piano right away using a modern sounding chord? And what if you could use this chord to create your OWN music instead of playing Kum ba ya 40-50 times for practice.
You're in for a treat because this kind of piano instruction exists and can be found right on the internet. I'm talking about something called the Open Position Piano Chord and with it, you can quickly and easily create your own unique music. Not in months or years. Not even in weeks. I'm talking about hours!
But how you ask?
The answer is easy. The Open Position Piano Chord uses both hands right away to create a modern sound. Once you master this chord position (takes about 10 minutes or less) you'll be well on your way to playing contemporary styles. The best part about this chord structure though is how easy it is to create with.
Because both hands are used immediately, you have the opportunity to play with the tones under your fingers. The lowly triad, while still used in much western music, is not so friendly in this regard.
With the triad, you get 3 tones to play around with and while you can create some music with this, it's just not what today's sound is all about.
The Open Position Chord however gives you a modern seventh chord to play with right away. Used in Jazz, New Age, and Contemporary styles, the seventh chord is the foundation of most of today's music!
Look, if you want to get really creative at the piano, try the Open Position Piano Chord and you'll see how your piano lessons will become that much easier!
