As it happens, it’s not a bad idea to learn to be an effective pianist yourself.
But if you don’t have any formal training or background in the field, you might want to consider some of the following tips, which we hope will help you navigate your way through the ranks of female pianists.1.
Practice to master your own voice.
The key to a good performance is to practice in a way that allows you to develop your own technique, rather than relying on a textbook to teach you the basics.
This is especially true if you’re just starting out and want to get your feet wet, or if you want to practice soloing in the meantime.
The more you practice, the more you’ll get to know your voice better, and the more confident you’ll feel in your abilities.
You might even be surprised how much more confident your playing will be after you’ve practiced a few times, which might give you an advantage over the more experienced players.2.
Play more confidently.
If you feel you’re struggling to get through a piece, it might be time to switch gears.
Practice the first few notes in your solo, and if you find that the piece just gets too difficult, switch to a new instrument.
The faster you can get started, the better your performance will be.3.
Practice at a more relaxed pace.
If playing at a slower pace is a regular thing for you, you’ll likely find that your performance is more focused, which is a good thing.
Try practicing soloing on a piano with just a few notes, or playing it slowly.
You may find you can learn more by gradually moving into more advanced techniques.4.
Get more comfortable.
There are plenty of great things about playing at home with your partner.
The music is always fresh, and you can listen to it from any position without feeling rushed.
If your partner is comfortable in your own body, you can work on the confidence in your voice.
Try working on the vocal range, and work on developing your own confidence in the keys.
If both of you have the same instrument, you may be able to play together on a single instrument without too much fuss.5.
Practice playing in front of your partner, rather that in front, of a large group of people.
If a lot of people are listening to your performance, you’re less likely to get overwhelmed, which can be a real plus.
When you can’t play alone, you won’t have to think too much about what you’re doing.
You can listen in, and it’ll all be fine.6.
Listen to your voice naturally.
The best way to become a great pianist is to listen to yourself, rather then relying on music theory to learn how to play.
You’ll find that listening to the sound of your voice helps you become a better pianist and will make you more comfortable with your voice, which will help with the next stage of your career.7.
Practice in public.
If possible, play solo in public places, especially in a public place like a theater or concert hall.
It’ll help to have a place to practice and have a good view of your instrument.
It can also help to practice on your own in a small group, with your group of friends.
If that’s too far, try playing solo with a friend or even playing a friend’s instrument, like a guitar or mandolin.8.
Practice with a professional partner.
If at first you don.t find a good partner, you could always try a professional piano player, and they’ll also have more experience than you.
Try going to an event, or even a piano bar, where you can practice with other female pianistas.9.
Get some help.
The next step is to find someone who can help you with your training, as well as some guidance.
You don’t need to be perfect or know every single technique, but if you practice the right things and can follow the correct technique, you should be able get a feel for your own style.
The sooner you start playing, the sooner you’ll be able practice with more people.
