I have decided to practice keyboard for approximately two hours a day. And today is my first day. In the daytime, I will practice my repertoire of nine songs. And in the evening I will practice my newly assigned songs. This should really help my playing fluidity.
And, I really should practice half of my time on the piano and the other half of my time on the keyboard. That’s what my piano teacher recommended.
The following is my repertoire:
Arietta by Mozart
Sleeper’s Awake by Bach
Farandole by Georges Bizet
Love Me Tender as made popular by Elvis Presley
Lover Man as made popular by Billie Holliday
Ain’t Misbehavin by Thomas Waller and Harry Brooks
Smoke Gets In Your Eyes by Jerome Kern
Hard Day’s Night by John Lennon and Paul Mc Cartney
Fascination by F.D. Marchetti
Sounds like a plan!! I like a good plan and hope it all goes well for you! Good luck!
love to hear you play
I’m only intermediate though
I’m working on Meditation from Thais by Jules Massenet.
I thought you meant computer typing by keyboard practice.
wow that’s so great !! you sound motivated !
Nice variety in your repertoire. Classical and pop, both. “Hard Day’s Night” esp sounds like fun, if you’re a Beatle.
W/ metronome? & do u have lil breaks in that time?
next you will be a classical pianist and also a synth pop artists on a moog haha
Are you up to für Elise yet? That’s a piece I really want to play. But hey girl keep it up.
Nope, no breaks. I count out loud with my voice as I play. I don’t use a metronome, although I have a digital one. My problem is my hearing is so bad that I can’t hear the metronome above the keyboard as I play, so, I don’t use it.
I’d marry you, @77nick77, except that I’m mostly lesbian and vowed to celibacy.
I’ve played for 9 years now and I’m Really good. Self taught myself by watching YouTube videos. I can just watch and play. Never figured out how to read notes LOL just never bothered with it except a few occasions many years ago.
That’s truly amazing, @SailorTheFox59! I’ve been taking private lessons for 12 years now and I can still hardly play. I don’t know how people like you do it. I’m amazed.
I’ve added two more songs to my repertoire recently. These are:
Don’t Know Much- by Barry Mann, Cynthia Weill and Tom Snow
Nocturne From a Midsummer’s Night Dream- by Felix Mendellsohn
