How to Fake Playing Piano: Lesson 2

Hack The Piano Piano Music Music Theory Video Music Lessons

Welcome to lesson 2 of How to Fake Playing Piano, a piano-lesson series that skips the “Hot Cross Buns” and teaches you how to bang around on a keyboard as if you know what you’re doing. Yesterday, composer Jason Oberholtzer taught me how to play octaves and fifths with my left hand . Today, he teaches how to play in the key of C.

In this episode, you get to see me mess up Jason’s simple instructions. Just think how confident you’ll feel when you do it better! And if you’re a new piano player following along and learning with me, I’d love to see how you’re doing. You can embed a video below or email me a link.

Check back tomorrow to learn how to play music in other keys. Yes, this means we’ll finally get to touch the black keys!
