A Vancouver Epidemic of Royal Conservatory of Music!

I just need to get on my podium for just a moment!

It seems to that in the Vancouver, and outlying areas, that people seem to think that piano is full of scales, arpeggios, chords and a bunch of other technical skills to be a incredible player. That is simply not true!

What about Clementi, Czerny, Hanon, to name a few, even Chopin Etudes.

Greatness does not happen also until you are older in our years. There is the exception. But generally, later because we develop as students of ourselves and we understand who we are!

Simply Piano’s mission is to have people of all ages from children to adults uncover the greatness of who they are while studying something of they truly love not just practicing scales over and over and over again! YUK!

How do you use your memory to learn the piece you are studying?

When studying a piano piece do you use your ear, muscle memory or are you thinking the notes?

We all have amazing memories…it’s just a matter of exercising that muscle!

 

Remove the Notes/ Remove the Teleprompter!

When the notes are removed then the story begins!

Why are some people successful in piano/life and others not.

It’s all the same thing! Life and studying the piano! Sounds crazy doesn’t it!

Composers use their imagination to create music.

We were born with an imagination and dreams! It’s such a cool thing! Everything was created because of dreams and imagination! Its truly a gift! Do you use your imagination to create your music?

Does studying the piano fill your life with joy?

Do you love your life and how learning the piano and studying a piece helps you grow into something amazing?
