This easy to follow formula will instantly have you knowing the 5ths with confidence. The 5th is a very supportive note that will be used in your playing. Once you understand the principal then add it to your SHELL to the 5th exercise developing this control in your LEFT HAND. Shell played first then add the 5th as delayed tone.

Practice versus Playing is a very important tip
that when you understand the difference will make your practice efforts much more enjoyable with the best results. Practice means to play things you do not know. Be sure to always have a level set where you are on the edge of not being able to apply yourself. This will maximize your time during your daily practice. As for Playing the piano we want to emphasis that this is very important and will and should be apart of your daily practice. Playing the piano will encompass playing material you are somewhat familiar with and not quite pushing your skills to that point of failure. So pay extra attention to this incredibly valuable advice. I can assure you it will help.
FACE Formula here we look at one of the most val
uable tips you can see. Most people have lots of difficulty when reading notes above or below the STAFF. Through utilizing this formula you will find incredible insight into now being able to read these notes and be very accurate in doing so.. No guessing.
Start planning before you play! I will shed som
e light on this tip as I often see students that jump into playing a tune and not really take the necessary time to assess the situation carefully enough leaving them hanging out there struggling. Key signature, time signature, repeats, melodies and chords contribute to a lot of things to be watching out for. so take a minute to assess the situation before playing the tune. It can make it a much more enjoyable experience. Of course at higher levels we pretty much can assess on the fly but I do not recommend this as often even in these situations one can find glitches that could have been overlooked, perhaps a bad chord or something along this line.
Know your chords before starting! This is very
important when moving forward in your playing. The luxury of this artform using chords enables us to adjust our level of playing using a variety of applications. For example play just the ROOT of the chord in the LEFT HAND to get started. Assess those chords ahead of time to perhaps take out some that dont seem to work well or add ones that may be better fit. This does take some skill to do however more than likely by assessing the situation you will at least be able to modify your level of playing so you can function through the piece of music with fewer concerns.
