Before you begin the fascinating study of the piano, you should know that initially it can be difficult to train your hands. It is worth your patience, and learning to play the instrument in requires practice. Initial difficulties with hand coordination will pass.

Learning to play an instrument takes practice
It is said that practice makes perfect. This is true not only for learning to play an instrument. Only consistent and systematic piano practice will improve the dexterity of your fingers and hands. And the results will motivate you to work even harder. Schedule at least 40 minutes of piano playing each day.
Learn the piano keyboard
Music is made up of notes. Playing the piano can be compared to learning a new language. The notes correspond to the letters of the alphabet, and the chords used while playing are words you can form from the letters. Before you read the words, be sure to learn about the keys of the piano. It’s a simple instrument that consists of several repeating ranges.
Learn the musical alphabet
Learning to play the piano requires learning only 12 keys. A sequence of 7 white and 5 black keys next to each other forms a repeating pattern of twelve notes. The white keys are a range of C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C. On the piano keyboard, the notes appear from the lowest on the left to the highest on the right. Every time you press one key to the right, whether it’s white or black, you increase the key by half a tone.
Choose music you like
Learning to play the piano can be an exciting adventure. It certainly will be if you learn the chords and find music that excites you. Choose for yourself the notes of songs that will inspire you to practice and polish your skills. This will keep you motivated to practice and your piano skills will develop expressively.
Don’t be afraid to improvise
Whether you are already a piano virtuoso or a beginner, you can express yourself while improvising. It’s a great way to explore music and express yourself.
Learning to play an instrument is a time to discover an instrument you didn’t know before. You will discover many new issues. Don’t expect to understand everything right away.
