Here is another piano lesson on how to play the G Major scale. Usually, our teacher, Jacob will teach a lot more than just scales during the lesson, but we thought it would be helpful for students to have some pre recorded demonstrations some of the most common scales. Practicing these scales will help students develop coordination, awareness and speed so that it isn't so difficult to play songs on a higher level.
Our teacher Jake, also teaches drums and voice lessons. If you would like to book a lesson with him click here:
Practicing your scales on the piano is like putting money in the bank. The more comfortable you are with your scales, the better you will be able to improvise, play in any key necessary, and build coordination in your fingers. Basically, mastering scales is one the keys to developing mad skills on the keys.
Here is a video of our piano instructor, Jake Loomis demonstrating how to play the C Major pentatonic scale. To book a piano, voice, or drum lesson with Jacob, click here:
If you have been bored or discouraged during this pandemic, you are not alone. All of us here at Pilsen Music Studio have been experiencing something very similar. Its at times like this where I find myself scrolling through Netflix and just reading about each show. It’s strangely comforting. However, I feel like I am blessed. I am on a musical journey and this provides a great deal of balance in my life, despite the presence of this horrendous Covid.
Whether you want to learn how to sing, how to play piano, how to solo on the saxophone, or how to do them all at the same time, music provides a welcome distraction from our world of 24 hour press coverage, elections that seemingly last forever, and constant new social media posts.
Sometimes it’s just so nice to only have to focus on one thing. Its so nice to take some time out for yourself as you pursue your musical interests. As you practice your instrument, your piano playing, voice, or whatever other instrument you are playing becomes a metaphor for a brighter future.
