You love the soothing sounds of relaxing piano music. But have you ever thought about actually going to your piano and creating it yourself? You can thanks to Edward Weiss's online piano course.
This course teaches beginning adult students how to play piano using a chord-based approach. The lessons are designed in an easy step by step fashion that shows you what chords to play and how to improvise and create your own music.
You already know how therapeutic listening to solo piano music is. Creating it on your own is much better because you're actually involved in the process. Making music forces you to be in the present. And once you get a taste of how good this feels, you'll want more and more.
For instance, take the free lesson “Winter Scene " Here we have a relaxing piano lesson that teaches you to play 2 chords in your left hand while your right improvises melody.
To the complete beginner, this may seem like a lot. And it is until you actually try it. Once you start to play the chords in your left hand and get the pattern down, it becomes quite simple to jump in with the right and begin improvising a melody.
I always advise students to go as slow as they need to at first. Speed is not important at all. Playing with sensitivity is. If all you can do is play one note in the right hand while your left is busy playing, than you've accomplished quite a lot.
It won't take long for you to freely improvise and create your own relaxing piano music!
