PI-101, Top 10 Classical Piano Pieces for Beginners
Lessons 1-3 above taught you some basic skills. Now, we're ready to move on to your first song. Here is how it works: First I teach you the right hand, then the left hand, and finally both hands together.
The videos contain the sheet music in them, so you won't need a PDF; however, if you still want it, below each video there is a download button. Good luck!
I encourage you to take your time. Don't rush it. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. It's important that you stay with it until you can play each song fluently, without effort. Try to memorize the song. Then try playing it with your eyes closed. When you are completely comfortable playing your first song, you are ready to move on to your 2nd song. Good luck!
30 years of teaching has taught me one thing—If you rush and don't spend the time it takes to learn each song properly, you will suddenly hit a brick wall where everything suddenly become difficult. Professional musicians practice a song until they can play it by heart.
I encourage you not to start on Song 3 until you can play both Song 1 & 2 effortlessly. Did you forget Song 1? Now would be a good time to review Song 1. Once you have mastered both songs, you are ready to move on to song 3.
