Go Tell Aunt Rhody Play Along Score by iServalan at Suzuki School


Go Tell Aunt Rhody

What makes the piano a great choice for first instrument lessons for all ages?


The piano is an excellent choice for a first instrument, and here’s why:

  1. Ease of Play: The piano is physically easier to play compared to many other instruments. Its straightforward keyboard layout allows beginners to understand note arrangements easily12.

  2. Simplicity in Sound: Making music on the piano is simpler. Unlike some instruments that require specific fingerings or embouchure techniques, the piano produces sound by pressing keys, making it more accessible for beginners1.

  3. Versatility: The piano’s unmatched versatility spans various genres, from classical to jazz to pop. Its full range of notes allows for complex melodies and harmonies, making it an ideal choice for beginners who want to explore different styles1.

  4. Cognitive Benefits: Learning the piano enhances cognitive skills, improves coordination, and provides a solid foundation in music theory. Plus, it can make learning other instruments easier later on13.

In summary, the piano’s ease of play, versatility, and cognitive benefits make it an ideal first instrument for aspiring musicians! 🎹🎶143.

How to practice and perfect your scales for string instruments

  1. Use strong and articulated fingers for better precision and intonation.
  2. Train your ears to hear the correct notes and fix the wrong ones.
  3. Anticipate the next note with your left hand and brain.
  4. Make quick, light, and smooth shiftings or position changes.
  5. Use equal and precise bow distribution, regardless of the tempo.
  6. Play scales musically, as if they were pieces of repertoire.
  7. Warm-up with scales before starting your practice.
  8. Practice consistently and regularly, even if it’s only 15 minutes a day.
  9. Set realistic goals and talk to your teacher about your progress.
  10. Take breaks and avoid frustration.
  11. Find a good teacher or coach who can guide you and keep you accountable.

Also, consider practicing scale cycle exercises that cover 2 octaves and up to 3 sharps & flatsThis will help you understand note relationships, improve your intonation, and build finger strength and dexterity.

Remember, the key to mastering scales is consistent practice and patience. Happy practicing! 🎻
