So throughout this semester, I have been taking a look at a skill that I lost at a young age. This particular skill is playing the piano. Most musical people would recommend that if you were to learn a musical instrument, such as the piano, you should do it at a young age, as when you are young you pick up on simple concepts faster than if you were an adult. But instead. I decided to learn at the age of 18. If you were to ask me how it went, I would say something along the lines of, “It was hard, and I have a long way to go”. This is true. Mainly I focused on the concept of chords and how using the simple method of chords, you can play a pretty impressive song.
With the help of both my friends, Kathleen Houston, Kelsey Howatt and the use of the internet, I was able to produce a video of myself playing chords to the song “Lava”.
As well, I was able to test out several different ways that you could access a piano. Either in person or by using several websites that turn your keyboard into a piano.
In the end, I found that no matter what you see online, you must practice on whatever you want to achieve, whether that is piano or some other type of skill that you would like to have in your repertoire.
