One of those songs was Say Something by A Great New World. Every time I hear the song on the radio or at an awards show I love its simplicity, so with learning to play the piano in the back of my head, it was a perfect choice. I went to my new source, typed in the song, requested a beginner lesson with two hands, and was given this to guide my learning.
After spending two hours learning and practicing, I am a little over halfway through learning just my right hand. Two specific challenges have slowed my progress. The first is that the right hand travels up and down the piano. The second is the song is not a basic “1, 2, 3, 4 beat”. So with both of these things considered, I feel good about the progress I have made, and actually feel that my confidence and rhythm on a piano is getting stronger.
And now, with all of that being said, enjoy this week’s video of my piano learning/ playing journey.
