THE STORY OF HOW THE METHOD WAS CREATED
After nearly 4 years of building a Youtube channel which gained great popularity and support among her fans, beginner learners started to seek after me to learn piano after being discouraged from years of learning to play piano without success, from learning at many music centers and tutoring classes with traditional piano teaching method using such books as Method Rose, Hanon, Alfred. Nevertheless, these methods have failed to fulfill their wishes of finding the passion to play, learning the method, how to play and the direction that suits adult piano learner to play the piano with more success in less time.
I can understand deeply the greatest challenges of learning to play a two-handed piano song, that is, the player is completely dependent on the score, not knowing how to combine two hands and do not understand the rules as well as not being able to create freely the melody that one desires. That is the traditional method to learn piano that anyone who learns and plays the piano has to go through. It takes 7 years, 10 years or more for a person to play the piano freely. And this traditional way of learning is not suitable for adult beginners of the piano.
I recall the period when I first started with reading the two-handed piano score, it took me time to move the notes of the Bass Clef as well as read the long music scores with tons of musical notes, it made an adult like me lose patience. Relearning to practice fingers as a five-year-old kid is a way of learning that every adult who takes piano lessons has to go through, and not many of them hold the persistence to continue. Therefore, there must be a different way of learning for adults.
Once, when I was giving piano lessons online to a student living in France (he was over 70 years old), as he was old, his sight reading and practice speed was not as agile as young people. To help him practice faster, I created a way to mark and number on the one-handed music score. And that was the initial idea to develop my self-learn Piano Solo Method.
During the later period, I always had this urge and told myself to create a new piano learning method suitable for adults so elderly people like Mr. Loc can also play the piano easily and quickly.
Shorten the learning and playing time by the appropriate method
With this method, an adult can learn to play the piano five times faster than traditional piano learning, from the minimalism of the essential knowledge needed to play the piano solo. Such knowledge includes music theory in solo piano playing, how to number the rhythm on the music score and how to practice and think when practicing the piano.
I tested this method successfully on the learners in my offline classes, 80% of beginner learners can play one song with two hands after one lesson and within the first week studying with this method, some people can even play by ear (without music score) independently in the following two months.
That’s why I want to share my approach to a great number of adults who love the piano so that everyone can easily approach and achieve the accomplishment of playing their favorite songs in little time, aiming at playing the piano without music score and freely expressing their emotions and personalities through playing and composing the melody.
I believe that it is never too late for an adult to self-learn and play the piano successfully. Having the right method and you will be able to do the things you want.
