    Doesnt work because reading music requires long term memory. The student needs to play lots of simple music until note recognition is instant. Then they can teach themselves the remaining notes until fluent. Sight reading the correct music is how you learn to read fluently. Btw scales are for improvising they are fun if taught correctly...too long, boring sorry.

    Another tip when figuring out the key (after checking the signature) is to look at the chord (or bass note) in the final bar of the piece. That almost always the same as key.

    great lesson Tim. Here are my shortcuts for the circle of fifths. order of sharps: Father Christmas Gave Dad an Electric Blanket order of flats: (same as yours) BEAD followed by GCF number of sharps in a major key: the clock position on the circle(A major would have three since it is at 3 o'clock) number of flats: mirror image of the sharps clock positions idea What is the relative minor?: Two letters to the left of the major(the minor for E major is C#) order of the modes: I Don't Particularly Like Modes A Lot

    I have been learning Indian classical type music for a long time with scale changer now I want to change my style to western classical. But I am not able to do that. Like I can write notation in "Sa re ga ma..." easily but when it comes to chords I am having serious problem does anyone have any suggestions? Because of this style my right hand is perfect at playing anything which doesn't include too many chords, I can play basic chords with left hand simultaneously but I don't know how to go further.

    Hey I hope you're still around. I'm a bit curious about when you go through the c major scale with chords. It would seem like you're breaking a rule by not having any of your 3rd / 5ths in those triads to be sharps. I'm wondering why that may be the case. Eg: if I'm going up the c major scale, shouldn't I hit f# when I do the D triad?

    If anyone is wondering how to memorize all these combinations you don't have to. Instead, learn the major pattern which is tone, tone, semi-tone, tone, tone, tone, semi-tone. A tone is a full step meaning you skip a key whether it be black or white and a semi-tone means the next key whether it be black or white. You start on the key the major scale you want to do is named after and follow this pattern.

    You missed the greatest feature of Flowkey: hook it to your digital piano via MIDI, and it will follow your playing in your own speed. This is also what the hand selection is for: it tells Flowkey to wait for only one hand and play the other hand by itself. I agree that it's not ideal as it keeps you from learning sight reading, and I would prefer printed fingering hints as it's sometimes hard to figure that out from the video, but it's nice for learning songs. Quite expensive though.

    I have a yamaha psr e463 keyboard which I got two days ago. it comes with 61 full sized touch sensitive keys. over 700 sounds. 235 auto accompaniment styles. USB audio recorder, quick sampling, USB to device terminal, and a USB port. also comes with auxiliary jacks for connecting mp3 players. has some nice drum sounds and for £249 you get some decent features, much better than on the psr e413. you also get live control knobs and an arpedgiator as well so its also a synth. the keys feel nice to play and for the first time in the yamaha psr e range of keyboards you no longer have the education sweet. this keyboard was ment for semiprofessional musicians like me who just want a keyboard to perform on and use with software like fl studio but fl studio is not recommended for a visually impaired person like myself. anyway the intire keyboard has 2 sppeakers on either size with the best sound quality I have herd so far. there is just too much I can say about this keyboard its just so feature ritch for an entry level keyboard

    Hi, Tim I really liked the way you hummed over the 16th notes, because as we advance into three and four (Bass, Tenor, Alto and Soprano) parts for me it has been impossible with the addition of 32nd and 64th notes (especially 32nd and 64th grace notes and triplets and sixths and appogiaturas), I never know if these rhythms are correct. Also I physically do not have enough breath to count every single 32nd and 64th notes in tricky arrangements and tricky time signatures like 2/2, 5/4, 9/8 and 12/8, what happens if there is a piece in 16/8 time? Sure appreciate your youtube videos - thank you:) A video on this would be highly appreciated. Also I noticed the difference between how I count 1e+a... compared to your counting in the Allagreto (sorry spelling is wrong) Fugue by humming and yours sounded almost like there was this charming lilt that provided this alluring swing that I can not produce by just counting 1e+a... and I am going to get on the piano and play it along with you and then apply it to a piece in my Bach Fugue book that I have yet to play even a single note from this text and see if I too can copy you (if that is okay. How do you hum through 32nd and 64th notes correctly?

I found a piece from David Bowie's Labyrinth(the opening intro) that I really like and struggling to get up to speed with both hands. Sometimes it feels like I just don't have the talent, I have to remind myself I've been at this for about 8 months. Thank you for putting these videos up they really inspire me and let me know I'm on the right path to learn.

Beethoven didn't have issue (not unless he had a secret that historians have yet to uncover!).

    Les6 hari yang lalu

    I'm one of the lucky ones. I've been playing by ear for 45 years and I've held down good piano jobs for 30 years without ever needing to get a day job. I think having a very eclectic taste in music and exposing myself to as many different styles and decades have given me a pretty good grounding in theory(even if I can't express what they are in notation form, I am extremely skilled at being able to pick apart every tiny detail of a song in my mind and then translate that to my hands and the keyboard). The clincher? I'm ADHD and my passion is music. That "disorder" gave me the edge at focusing on getting really good at playing piano. Don't get me wrong..it wasn't easy. I spent the first 20 years working very hard by trial and error to locate the notes and chords to learn the songs I wanted to play. I used a tape recorder to play a song a couple bars...rewind...listen again and attempt to play it over and over until I figured out how to do it. In the beginning, it took me months to learn a new song(And this was when I was trying to learn George Winston music since he didn't publish at that time, ear tuning was the only option). Over the years, I learned many different patterns, chords and rhythms that every 1 song learned would show me the way to play an additional 50 songs and now, it doesn't take me much longer than 5 minutes to figure out a new song by ear. However, I'm one of the exceptions. Most people will need to use your lesson ideas to get better. My way worked for me, but I doubt it would work for many others. Good video, my friend. Peace.

    You know, I have the book but I will say what I like about your program is that you give us structure, things to practice during the week, and a quiz and such. With the books, I find myself moving on once I successfully complete an exercise but not really knowing what to do on a regular basis which is what you give through your program. I would say the book is a great resource, but I would definitely recommend a structured program.

    Hi Tim, I've been following your channel for quite a long time now and I think you're a pretty awesome teacher, but I got the impression from the internet searching for your paid video reviews that you're not recognized enough beucase I didn't find many of them compared to other channels / online teachers, and in my opinion you really deserve that. I'm hesitating to acquire your paid courses after viewing like 150+ youtube videos but first I have two questions and I hope you don't take them badly! - Do you keep updating the video courses content? For example, does the intermediate pack still receiving new videos? - Along your courses, do you follow a base material book throughout the videos like the alfred's one? Please don't take'em badly, I'm from Argentina where my currency worth nothing and it's actually a lot of money for me, but I wan't to think it's a great investment! (actually aiming for the all courses package). Hope you can answer this message Tim, cheers!

    I've been using the Alfred book for a few weeks now since I can't afford a teacher at this point in time. I can say without a doubt it rocks. It takes you slowly through learning the piano and recognizing notes in the sheet music while also slowly progressing you to moving more across the keys. Also some helpful positioning tips. I've definitely gotten better from using it vs just sheet music and IDreporter. I'd highly recommend it for people self-teaching though a teacher is always a good idea once you can get one.
