Wanting to Play the Piano
You probably already know that piano playing is an exciting talent to develop. If you are a jazz enthusiast, you may have listened to piano music from great artists like Count Basie or Duke Ellington. You might like modern jazz piano players better and there are many who have won the hearts of audiences everywhere.
One piano player who crosses many genres is Jim Brickman, who often plays his own compositions. Along with smooth jazz stations, Brickman’s music is played on pop, inspirational, and new age stations.
You may be more interested in the rock keyboard players. Some of them have been: Rick Wakeman of Yes, Tony Banks of Genesis, Dennis De Young of Styx, and David Sancious who played for Springsteen, Santana, and Sting. Rock piano players include Elton John, Billy Joel, Carole King, Paul McCartney, and Carly Simon.
Even if you have never liked classical music before, you might begin to enjoy it once you have started taking piano lessons. It presents a challenge and is very satisfying to master. Some of the greats are Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Liszt, Chopin, Brahms and a huge number of other timeless and amazing artists.
If you are like many people who hear these great musical works of art, you will want to emulate them. You may learn well enough to play for a band or as a solo act if you are dedicated enough. You can certainly learn to play the piano well enough to entertain yourself, your friends, and your family.
There are also other benefits to taking piano lessons. One is relaxation. When you feel upset, it is very therapeutic to play the piano for awhile. If you are angry, playing the piano can release your frustrations. Your playing will soothe your nerves if you are anxious. If you are feeling down, you can start with slow songs and build up to more up-tempo, happier-sounding songs. This will often lift your sad mood.
Another reason for taking piano lessons in Calgary is to develop discipline. It gives rewards at every level, keeping you motivated to stay at it. Learning to play the piano will help to strengthen and exercise your brain, disciplining the focus and attention to detail. Often, those who learn to play the piano begin to notice small things that they may have overlooked in the past, learning to stop and smell the roses, so to speak.
Learning to play the piano is easier in some ways than learning other types of music. With vocal music, you have to learn more carefully about pitch. You have to worry about being just a touch above or below the note. With a piano, the only way that would happen is if your piano is out of tune, in which case you just have a technician fix it.
The main reason anyone should learn to play the piano is for their own fulfillment. No matter what that means to you, you will be happy when you have strived to reach your full potential. You will feel joy when you play a composition well. You will be a happier person for letting music into your life.
