Description

1 March[UPDATE] 11th & 12th Week are uploaded !

Ferdinand Beyer is a composer that the book Beyer Op. 101 is commonly used as foundation of the piano education in most countries. In this course, we will use Beyer Op.101. and follow the path of most pianists did.

This course is designed for every music and piano enthusiast but basic note knowledge is recommended. Although we will go over the basics, it won't be too detailed. We will focus on our technique and speed so that we can play any other piece with practice afterwards.

This course is designed as week by week. So it shows the students the way to practice and follow the course. For example, first weeks content will be practiced for one week, then you will move on to the next section, 2nd week. Now it is 4 weeks of content, and it will be updated constantly until the book is covered and the price will increase accordingly so it is better to get it soon :).

This course is the professional way to learn about piano playing, we will learn about the terminology, different hand positions on the piano and we will do finger exercises to strengthen our fingers then we can play very confidently.



Who is the target audience?
  • This course is beginner/elementary level. But still it is recommended that students who take this course have little knowledge about notes and rhythm values.

4th Week
4 Lectures 31:24

We are learning to play legato. When you see a slur connecting notes, you need to play those keys like when you hit the first one, you should lift your finger just before you hit the next key. So it will be like a flow.

Right Hand : 1-6

When there is a rest, we need to lift our hand because it should be silent and also there is a new note / slur coming up.

Right Hand : 7-12

6th Week

Welcome to Week 6. Now we are practicing more complicated both hand pieces. In this piece, left hand plays only the note G so it is better to focus on the right hand. Good luck.

No: 8

Again, No:9 is similar to No:8. Left hand only plays the note G but this time in different rhythmic patterns. Practice the right hand then play both hands.

Allegretto means moderately fast so first practice slowly after day 4, you will be able to play it a little bit faster.

Piano Teacher

I am 25 years old computer engineering graduate. I've been playing piano since I was 8. I've graduated from a conservatory in Turkey, then I continued private lessons with my instructor from there. 5 years ago I stopped taking private lessons and instead I practiced on my own. I have started teaching kids piano 4 years ago when I was a college student and I've had 15-20 students during this time.
