Langkah Awal Belajar Piano/ Keyboard

Warning! Tips ini bukan untuk kamu-kamu yang pernah belajar musik (minimal 1 tahun kursus). Tapi untuk membantu orang "awam-musik", orang yang belum pernah sama sekali menyentuh yang namanya piano atau keyboard.

1. Miliki Alatnya!

Ada yang berpikir, "Bisa dulu baru beli." Wah..pernah belajar naik sepeda? Ok, kamu bisa naik sepeda dulu baru beli atau beli dulu sepedanya? Ya, bermain musik adalah sebuah keahlian (skill), seperti naik sepeda. Menurut Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English: “Skill is an ability to do something well especially because you have learned and practiced it.”. Anda harus berlatih! Bagaimana mau berlatih jika tidak ada alatnya. Mungkin kamu gak harus beli, bisa pinjam dulu ataiau numpang di rumah orang lain untuk belajar. Tapi intinya kamu harus punya alatnya dulu.

How to Self-Study the Piano

Self-study seems to require greater amounts of self-motivation than learning through an instructor. Without those weekly lessons with a teacher, it will be easier to let practice fall by the wayside. I think it would be important for you, as parents, to schedule practice time for your children and make sure (encourage/motivate) they are regularly practicing. Ideally the motivation that you provide as parents will be positive and uplifting and will boost the child’s self-motivation!

Younger children often seem to have a harder time with learning, and definitely with self-studying, an instrument. The age will vary, but (with my limited experience) it has seemed as if children do better with self-study when they are about 12 or older. I believe a lot of this is due to their increased ability to read and understand the new concepts they are learning. This doesn’t mean a younger child will be unsuccessful in his self-study, but it often means that expectations simply need to be set lower and more support from the parents will be required.
