How to improve at the piano without being a piano genius

Step-by-step guide in 9 modules full of tips!

Table of Contents

You’re here because want to solve the mysterious problem that stops the progress in your piano playing.

In the next three minutes, I’ll show you what your real problem is and the possible solutions you can use.

The Mysterious Problem

What do you do when you encounter a difficult part? You repeat it over and over - without great success.
Even after having studied it slowly, it’s still too difficult for you to play it at the final tempo.
The more you play it, the less you understand: you don't really know where the problem is lying.
You start blaming the innocent piano, thinking:

“Why is everyone else on YouTube playing it effortlessly, while is it so hard for me?”

You tried to watch all the YouTube videos with possible solutions. Still, you have that voice in your head saying you didn’t find the right key for your problem yet.

If you are lucky, you have a teacher following you. Still, you cannot have the right reply to your problem. The same thing happens when you write on those forums: they’re not giving you the complete solution.

Whatever problem you have and whatever the solution is, your situation means just one simple thing:

There is something you don’t know yet

Think of it in this way: your brain is like a computer. If you want to do particular tasks with it, you need the right software for doing it. Probably nowadays what you’re trying to do at the piano is like using Paint for doing some calculations -not the best choice.

Think also about this: how many times software doesn’t work because of a conflict with another one? (Please, blame the computer.) The same thing happens with piano playing.

The unknown cause

The problems you encounter very often are not the problems you think they are. For example: if your problem is to play in time without the metronome, one of the possible causes is not your lousy sense of rhythm, but it’s probably because of your technique.

Check if this is true: go to the piano and play a new piece you just started studying. Are you slowing down on difficult passages? Therefore is not your tempo feel, but probably your technique.

Now you see how the cause is not always directly related to the problem.

Especially if you are a self-taught student, it’s difficult to understand the real cause of your problem, since it could be something more “hidden”.

Having and organizing a good study plan is the key to solve to all of these problems. You need to know how to set up a study method that allows you to face any issue with possible solutions.You need to upgrade your software. You need a totally different approach than you used so far.

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” (A. Einstein)

Why is your approach not working? Because you are not considering the problem in its entirety.

What you really need is...

You need to see piano playing with a more holistic approachthat considers it on a broader range than you’re actually using nowadays.

That’s what those high-level pianists have: a broader perspective about the piano playing, considering more approaches to a single passage and see what fits best for their playing.

 

All these elements are combined into my super report

These nine modules are full of tips, exercises and suggestions for complete beginners and intermediate piano players.

Let’s now explore every module that you’ll receive inside this PDF.

Module 1: Choosing the right repertoire

It’s essential to choose your repertoire correctly if you want to improve faster in your piano playing.

Beginners think they should play super complicated pieces to become “stronger”; that’s totally wrong!

They only complicate their life trying to play the hardest tunes. As a result they will develop bad habits and progress slower than they think. It’s like starting your car with the last gear – you would be crazy!

That’s why I put this module as the first one: “All is well when it starts well”!

Why is this module important?

In this first module, you’ll learn:

  • How to assess your level first, so that you can improve gradually, continuously and faster!
  • The errors you can make in choosing your next tune and how you can choose the right one to become a better pianist.
  • Special for beginners: how to avoid any wrong choice with this trick.

If you ever thought playing piano is a difficult task, this module will prove you wrong. It’s actually simpler than you think. Everyone is capable doing it. You will be more confident in your skills by having a plan from the beginning, and you’ll be able to progress faster than those beginners who play difficult pieces without reason.

Module 2: Spend your study time wisely by playing at the right tempo

After having chosen correctly the piece you want to study, it’s essential to play it at the right tempo. You cannot just only play it at its final speed. 

Still, even if you slow it down, there’re some important things to keep in mind. As a second module, I decided to collect all the tips and tricks for starting out it in a good way.  As you’ll see, professionals piano player use this approach.

Why is this module important?

In this first module, you’ll learn:

  • The right tempo for starting correctly the pieces you want to play.
  • Why you’re not really practising and why this little misunderstanding can cause more harm than good.
  • The exercise Arturo Michelangeli Benedetti told to his students for flawless public execution.
  • How practicing in different tempos can help you to progress faster.

As a result, you will feel more confident in your studying so you can have better performances and lessons with your teacher. Yes, you read it well: since you’ll have mastered the tempo by using the ideas written in this module, the public performances will be less stressful.

Module 3: How to focus on details within the piece

If you are an intermediate player, chances are that if you play a piece you used to study, it goes fluently except a few spots.

This module is about effectively avoiding this problem, right from the beginning.  

After having chosen the right repertoire for you, the second and the third module together will help you organizing your practice routine effectively.

Why is this module important?

Using the tips inside it, you can:

  • Understand the error that makes you losing time while you exercise.
  • Focus on the right areas with a simple trick that will improve your study routine immediately.
  • Master the incredible strategy used by the best pianists for having a better piano performance with zero errors.

Now that you know how to correctly starting to study a piece, you’ll lose less time to learn a new piece without those problematic parts. This is valid for both intermediate and beginners piano players. 

Especially if you are a beginner, you can advance faster than intermediate players who use to study in the non-efficient study method.  In module five you’ll see how to study those difficult parts.

Module 4: How to play the piano freely

Most of the pianistic problems could be solved from a body perspective or from a musical perspective. 

Since beginners tend to have less musical awareness, it’s easier to start from the body. That is the topic of this module.

How many times do you see of great pianists on YouTube that play difficult passages without any problem, as though playing piano is the easiest thing in the world? For sure you know what I’m talking about. This is because they apply the contents of this module.

 

There’s a ton to be said about this topic, and many books have been written. However, I’ll illustrate a few essential principles on how to use your body. 

These principles should be known by all the pianists willing to get better in piano playing. I included plenty of photos so you can clearly understand the descriptions I wrote.

how to sit at piano
Why is this module important?

What you’ll learn is:

  • How to sit at the piano correctly so you can play freely without forcing your shoulders and your arms, avoiding injuring yourself.
  • The exercise that will make you feel like a stupid, but that will improve the perception of the instrument and will make sure that you’re at the right distance from the piano…. So you can play without feeling like a stone.
  • Why your torso is an enemy of your free playing at the piano
  • How to avoid stiffness and injuries using the right position of the hand.
  • The correct position of the wrist.
  • The proper shape of the finger.

Learning and incorporating these principles will make you a proper pianist, capable of playing everything. You will feel free at the piano and able to effortlessly play whatever passage you’ll encounter.

You’ll still need a teacher to apply the tips effectively. But if you already understand them, you will learn quicker.

Module 5: How to simplify difficult passages

In this module, we’ll work on the problematic parts of module three. 

You already know how to choose an appropriate piece for you, how to start it, how to plan your entire study routine, and how to solve a few physical problems. 

Now, it’s time to focus on the difficult parts

Why is this module important?

In this module I explain how to make overcomplicated things simple. You’ll learn:

  • How to create your own technique book with exercises tailored on what you’re studying so that you can improve faster on that particular musical piece you’d like to execute.
  • The typical error people make when they simplify a piece, so you won’t waste a ton of your time.
  • A clear example of the simplification of three bars of the Prelude in B minor, Op. 28, No. 6 by Chopin, so you know what to do when you play different lines together.

Grasping this will make you a different piano player. 

For sure, it’s impossible to gain an incredible piano technique in two minutes. 

Still, you will understand the preparation stage of playing a piano piece. Preparation makes the difference between you never improving and youreachinga higher level.

Module 6: Rhythmical variation - an exercise to improve a passage in no time

In this module, I will talk about rhythmical variations and how you can apply them effectively.

If you combine the fifth and this module, you’ll obtain two techniques that will make your study time well spent. Using rhythmic variations is a tool that must be present in every pianists’ toolbox. 

Whenever I use them in my private lessons, students get immediate results due to the physical response your body has when practising with them.

Why is this module important?

What you’ll learn is:

  • How to make new exercises to put in your home made technique book. In this way, you fit your study routine on you and not vice versa.
  • How to use the power of the rhythmic variations with various notated examples, so you can immediately understand how to apply them even if you are a total beginner
  • For the more advanced students: How I applied this exercise to the last bars of the First Prelude of G. Gershwin.
  • Past the trap that makes you lose hope when you are dealing with rhythmical variations.

You’ll see how fast you can progress when you’re going to apply rhythmic variations. If before you didn’t know how to practice your piano pieces, now you have two powerful techniques you can apply immediately on the pieces you’re studying. You will gain confidence in your playing, as you will have a method for facing the difficult parts. Whenever you reach this module, random studying will be in the past!

Module 7: Increase your repertoire while dealing with a technical problem

Module seven is a short one. Here I give you a different perspective on how you proactively can work on technical problems in a more accessible way while still getting more done.

In fact, what happens when we focus on the problem is that we cannot see anything else apart from that. Whenever this happens, beginners start to think they’re not cut for being a pianist. They simply get stuck in the passage until they get bored. Then, their learning potential will drastically decrease, unless they apply this module!

Why is this module important?

Here, you’ll learn:

  • How you can steadily increase your repertoire, instead of finding excuses like “I’m not good enough for starting a new piece”.
  • The error that beginners make when choosing another piece for resolving a technical problem and how to avoid it.
  • My suggestion on where to start. If you are a beginner, it’s a huge time saver to know exactly where to start. It permits you to start your progress well before the others.

You will also get a list of etudes composers you can look into, so you have a clear idea on what to look for.

This module will make you start loving your problems.

Whenever one comes out, you’ll be not only able to solve it but even to see it as an opportunity to improve quicker. 

You’ll think about problems strategically and not as a hurdle. Combine all of this with the other modules to have a concrete way to improve on the piano.

Module 8: Get better by recording yourself

This module is about learning by yourself. At home, the teacher is you! 

If you understand this, then you know how important it is to get objective feedback. If you are a self-taught pianist, you especially need to have this module. 

Recording yourself is mandatory if you want to step up your game. But, please, do it in the right way, using whatever device with a microphone you have

  • The common trap that people with low self-esteem can encounter while recording themselves and how to win it!

By recording yourself, you’ll have a piano playing diary. Can you imagine the confidence boost you’ll have when you see something you thought impossible that now comes out pretty easily?

Module 9: How to find the right feedback
