Mastering the piano in and of itself is easy.
Mind you I am not talking about mastering reading sheet music or transcribing.
Plainly put I am talking about becoming proficient playing the piano.
Here is all you need to know:
1. Exercise your fingers and thumbs so that you have total control over them. You can do this any whe1re, at work, in the car, at school, in bed, . . . anywhere. Fingering exercises are the key to playing anything and everything, with out finger control you will struggle with most compositions.
2. Learn some basic cords and their respective fingering patterns, you will see why later, just do it.
3. Play piano melodies based around your fingering patterns in your head 24/7
4. Sit at an actual piano and visualize everything you have done up till now, . . . walla!!!!
you are now playing the piano.
improvisation is the gateway to your creative spirit, have fun with it and remember there is no such thing as a wrong note.
Over time you will develop your own style and playing technique.
in the end the only one you need to impress is yourself, so again relax and have fun.
