Have you guys already watched the Love Story video on YouTube? ???Here is a little piano solo snippet of my favorite part. I love how it turned out so tumultuous and dramatic…?quite the opposite of so many ‘flowery’ versions of this timeless melody. (Click the link in bio to watch the full video!⬆️) ▪️Now here is a question for you: do you believe in a once in a lifetime, epic love stories? Have you personally experienced it? And do you think it’s still possible in this day and age given the fast and often un-romantic world we live in… ?
Time for another piano warm up/exercise video❗️?? Many of you ask me what I do to perfect my technique so this is meant to give you an idea of what I like to come up with to challenge myself (being the nerd that I am ???♀️) • First, I have to say that when I am just starting to play, I don’t start fast right away☝?. I’ll play regular scales (?) for about 5-10 minutes before doing anything else. • Most of the tricks I come up with are aimed at improving coordination/muscle memory/strength and agility. Some of my favorite challenges are: 1) Alternating between black and white keys 2) Having your hands go in opposite direction, (that run down in thirds ☠️? is no walk in the park, but it works!??) 3) Purposely trying to throw yourself off by playing patterns that are a bit unnatural, because this allows you to gain greater control of the keyboard, and makes common challenges seem like a piece of ??. I hope this gives you some ideas?to try! Sound off in the comments below if you have any questions and let me know what you think! (Watch me play this slowly in stories⤴️)
