Chris Goslow's Piano Lesson for Beginners "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on March 27, 2013

Chris Goslow performs music and teaches piano for a living. He's studied a wide range of music including classical at U.C. Berkeley. In this lesson he demystifies the piano for beginning students or people trying to decide if they should take up the instrument. Just like the key to finding your way through an unknown forest is memorizing or naming trees, he explains the names of each key on the piano and how they relate to each other. Since many popular and simple songs are written in the key of C, which is the easiest key to understand, he walk the viewer through the scales, starting with C. After learning the name of each key on the piano, students will at least have a musical vocabulary to work with and a fresh perspective on how to describe what is involved with playing music. Once a person learns the names of all the keys they can then practice scales using both hands and working on finger exercises. The method Chris finds effective for teaching is jumping right in to learning songs.
