Play Better Piano and keyboard

Once you have learned the basics, learned a number of chords and are able to play a fair few songs on piano, you will undoubtedly find that you need more.

To make your playing sound great you need to play turnarounds, you need to play solos and fit everything together seamlessly.

There really is only one way to go and that is to learn scales. Scales are the notes that fit into the key you are playing in. Scales gives your playing structure. Imagine you are playing in the key of C major. You know the chords and can play them but they sound wooden. That is when a few single notes or turnarounds are needed. They brighten up the piece and fill the gaps.

But what notes fit with the chord of C that you are playing in. There are only 8 notes in the key. You know three of them because you have your fingers on them. That leaves only five more to learn.
Have you tried to use a scale book to play a scale. It really is quite difficult; usually you find you run out of fingers.

To play scales you need your fingers to be used in a specific order for each scale. This is not just for scales, the finger order will be used all of your playing life. By knowing finger order, for not only a scale but also how to use your fingers properly for song playing, the playing smoothly up and down the keyboard is assured. By taking Play Piano Scales you will be taking the next step on the ladder of making you a great pianist.

You have learned the basics of playing, you have learned the chords you need and now it is time to learn scales that will propel you to new heights of ability. Each scale is taught for both hands (the finger order can be quite different.) Each scale can be seen to be played and can be heard so you will know that you are playing them correctly. Nothing will bring more ability to a pianist than learning scales.

All the major scales are covered.

Take the next leap of faith in yourself and learn your scales.
