“How do you get to play on all keys”? I have been asked this questions like a billion time(that’s obviously an exaggeration though).

Most Pianist I meet tell me on how they have tried to achieved this (Practiced vigorously) for quite a long while but then gave up along the way. Truth be told, getting to play on all keys doesn’t take quite a long time, just requires dedication, knowledge and practice.

Although I have not been consistently posting due to the limited time I have but I really want to share my real-life approach..  Although I am having this feeling that Readers will definitely have to message musicalcrib.com to keep me in track on this series but I really hope it doesn’t get to that, although you can message musicalcrib.com anytime..

I will be starting a series   on “HOW TO ACHIEVE PLAYING ON ALL 12 KEYS” (That might not be the title though). In this series, I will be giving practical examples and steps on how I achieved this

If you are a Music person, trust me, you don’t want to miss this, it’s not just for pianist. I really hope I can give videos when necessary during this series.  Although Before I start this series I would like to get feedback from everyone that would be interested. You can drop your comments here.

I would take this opportunity to quickly list out some of the benefits of playing on all keys:

-Freedom: Of-course freedom only comes when there is a bondage. BONDAGE??? Yes! I prefer to call it the Transpose-Bondage. For Years I was in this bondage.. Bondage: Musically restrained. Restrained from what?? Doing some particular stuffs. E.g: Advanced Chords, Playing in circles, Advanced Movements and so on..  The Transpose button restrain you from achieving all this and doing more.

-Relationship: Playing on all keys open your eyes to understand and see the relationships between chords. This might been doubtful but almost all chords relates. Learning to play on the 12 keys expand your knowledge on their relationship and also expands your progression

-Respect: I will stop on this as the last benefit. Imagine being in a shed or jam session with other musicians and you’re impressing them with your mastery of ONE key, and someone utters those dreaded words: “Take that up!”  or “move to the fourth”…What do you do? Do you start looking for the transpose button?? Until you realized the piano does not have a transpose button then you fold???

There are other benefits also..  As a Foundation, I would really advise to check out the lessons at musicalcrib.com.. especially the recent PIANO CHORDS SERIES.. You can check out the first in the series here..
