Last time we discussed that the most important quality every great pianist possessed was their commitment to practicing regularly, along with ways they could maximize their time spent practicing. This time around we have more fun practice tips from our friends at TakeLessons.
So if you’re reading this, then you must be learning to play the piano – congratulations! Although it takes a lot of time to play the piano well, practicing should not be an activity that you dread and associate with boredom. If you feel discouraged while playing the same scales and warm-ups, don’t – you can add a variety of dynamics, tempo changes, and alternative rhythms to spice things up!
