Most people think it’s not that important. But it is. Music is the heart of who you are.
I used to play my dad’s saxophone (for ten years) and I did not have much luck. I would not have heard a song on a standard piano and not been able to write it down. So I wanted to learn the key of piano. Because when you play piano, you have to do more and more. So what I did was that I would get a piece of paper and I would practice one key for twenty minutes or something. When I learned it, I would then go back to it and then play through it, just going through all the key strokes of the piece. Then I would take my next piece and try to play it one or two times with this new key, and then move onto the next piece.
And that’s what I did for 15 or 20 years or some how I lost track but I was trying to learn it as I went. But one day I happened to look up piano and I saw piano keys. So I said, “That sounds nice. That sounds like piano keys.” I started playing on piano keys and this is when it struck me.
If you do a keyboard exercise on piano keys and you do it correctly you get a great feeling with that instrument, and I started learning how to read that keyboard and I was doing it every night.
What is the secret to learning?
First of all I’m not going to be able to teach you how to learn everything because if you’re going to learn, you are going to have to learn it by yourself. We’re not going to give you the secrets or we’re going to give you the secrets in a way that no one will ever hear so we’re going to have to explain to you what we’re doing. So you had better be able to read, you had better be able to play, you had better be able to study. You had better be able to read and be able to play. And I also like to give you that feeling that you’re going somewhere with the music you’re playing. It’s a great feeling to be able to listen to something that you’ve never done before – a band! – and it means a lot to somebody that you’ve never seen it in person and you know it feels real; it’s not just some music you heard or read.
So, you got that going for you.
