There are tons of videos on the internet in regards to learning the piano. This is great, it gives you insight to how a piano works and how to get going. But over my years of producing beats, I’ve realized we as beatmakers play the piano differently than someone trying to learn classical piano. So why do we have to learn the piano from a classical standpoint when we’re wanting to create awesome beats – whether that be beautiful piano beats, or just have a better understanding of chords and improvisation?
Cause here’s the thing:
– As a beatmaker, we create repetition.
– We create loops which are on repeat over and over, and our goal is for these loops to be extremely catchy. (Also keeping in mind for our other instruments in terms of mixing for clarity.)
So in this course I cover with you:
•The basics of a piano to get everyone on the same page
•How keys, scales, and chords work
•Figuring out powerful chord progressions (and sharing some of my own personal favorites!)
•Thinking in terms of melodies and improvisation
•How to bounce around with your right hand
•Left hand techniques to add fullness to your composition
•Playing with both hands
•Popular note placement, counting beats, and different rhythms in the industry.
•How to stay motivated to practice piano as a beatmaker
