Want to Learn How To Play the Piano?

Piano Tutorial

Wussup fam,

If you’re a musician, artist or even a music producer I’ve got a great new website for you to check out.

MyPianoLessons.net is a piano blog I started where I’m going to learn to play the piano like a pro, step-by-step from scratch – and for free.

Now, I already know how to play the piano a little bit (but I’m nowhere near a pro). So I started the blog to keep track of my practice and motivate myself to keep going.

In the next 4 – 6 months I want to be able to literally play the piano like a pro – just sit down at a keyboard and buss out a crazy song. And I’m documenting everything, step-by step. From all the different ways to practice, to all the different scales and chords to everything else you need to know to play piano.

So visit MyPianoLessons.net and follow my personal piano tutorial. I’ve already gone through learning notes, scales and how to play piano chords, and so now I’m basically going step-by-step to memorize all the scales and chords and everything else I’ll need to play like a pro. I just finished off the C Major Scale and am moving on to the next one.

If you’re a music producer, and you can’t play piano, this is an essential website for you. If you’re a singer, then being able to play the piano will take your music and your live show to the next level. So come by and learn with me.

Check it out today.

Peace!

Guerilla Music Marketing Online – Bob Baker (Affiliate Link)

This is the last music marketing book I finished (Im reading the one below now). This is a great book that pretty much delves into a lot of different areas when it comes to marketing your music online. It’s not that long of a read and has lots of great information for beginners and experienced musicians. I highly recommend you read this book if you’re an independent artist. Bob Baker (the author) is a legend in the independent DIY music marketing industry. It’s definitely worth checking out. Here are the different chapters of the book:

Section 1: Laying the Foundation for Online Music Promotion
Section 2: Creating a Highly Effective Artist Web Site
Section 3: Promoting Your Music Across the Internet
Section 4: Making the Most of Social Media and the Interactive Web
Section 5: Powerful Music-Specific Sites & Online Services You Need to Know About

Definitely get this book. It’s a good read and has lots of tips, resources and information.

 

Music Success in 9 Weeks – Ariel Hyatt (Affiliate Link)

This is the music marketing book I am reading now. I’ve always been a fan of Ariel from CyberPR as well. This book is a great book, especially for anyone starting out online. Ariel lays out a week-by-week plan of things for you to focus on if you’re about to release some music. I’ll post more here about the book when I’m done reading it, but from what I’ve read so far I’d recommend it, especially to beginners to music marketing. Here’s a list of the chapters in this book:

Week 1: Setting Goals
Week 2: The Pitch
Week 3: Your Website
Week 4: Social Media Primer
Week 5: The Musician’s Guide To YouTube
Week 6: Blogging
Week 7: Your Newsletter
Week 8: Creating a Continuum Program
Week 9: The Real World


That’s all for now. I’ll be back next week (hopefully) with some more cool shit.
