How to Fake Playing Piano: Lesson 1

Hack The Piano Music Music Theory Piano Video

Imagine someone just starting to learn the piano. What does it sound like? Hot Cross Buns? Mary Had a Little Lamb? I sat down with composer Jason Oberholtzer for a fun piano lesson that concentrates on discovering new sounds and playing by ear, rather than learning specific songs or reading sheet music. It won’t get you into Carnegie Hall, but it will get you excited to make music.

Over the next five lessons, Jason will explain octaves and fifths, notes and keys, how to fake a song, and how to turn mistakes into music. In our first lesson above, Jason shows how the left hand sets the tone so the right hand can explore. Which is as sexy as it sounds.

We’ll have a new lesson up every day this week. Come back tomorrow for part 2: the right hand! - Download Hi-Res Songs
