Student Post- Steps to Learning A New Piece

Hi My name is Aiden and these are the steps that I go through to learn a song.

  1. Look at the first note and where it is on the piano and loot to see if you have the right fingering.
  2. Put the metronome at a slow speed
  3. Practice hands separately 
  4. Do the parts that you are having the most trouble with 3 times in a row with no mistakes
  5. Practice the spot that you need help on until you get it.
  6. Practice transitions
  7. One you get the whole song add dynamics
  8. Speed up the metronome
  9. Make sure you can place the piece at speed
  10. After, memorize the song

Hope these steps helped.
