The quality of your playing depends on the quality of your thinking.
Keyboard players who get this right succeed where others don't.
This is the one guiding principle for everything in your world. If you do simple things every day to move toward your goals, you will achieve them. YET ALMOST EVERYONE IGNORES THIS FACT. If you save $10 a day for three years, at the end of the three years you will have over $10,000. If you eat 100 calories less every day, or burn 100 calories more, by the end of the year you will weigh ten pounds less than you otherwise would have with no steps. Ten dollars a day is easy. 100 calories a day is easy.And the same goes with learning how to get better at the keyboards, or any musical instrument. Twenty minutes a day is easy. With one day off a week, that is two hours of practice every week, two hours of skill building, two hours of working out your style.
Two hours of experience playing the keyboard. Every week.
There are a variety of reasons that people don't follow through with their plans to practice: The don't trust this incremental change, they don't trust themselves to follow through, they have a negative mindset (they think they are bad and unskilled, so they refuse to make the attempt,) or they try to get their two hours in one day and ignore it the rest of the week (or the rest of the month,) and a myriad of other reasons, probably at least one more excuse for every keyboard player in the world.
The Big Problem
The problem with most piano teachers and online schools is this: They teach you the INFORMATION that you need to know. They teach you the EXERCISES that you need to work on. But they don't teach you the MINDSET that you need to have in order to succeed. They will happily talk to you about chords, scales, music theory and all other information that they know from their own education, but they most likely weren't educated in teaching MINDSET. Right out of high school I went to college for music education, and I never learned this. No class ever even mentioned it.
So if they aren't teaching teachers how to provide a quality mindset education, and if most piano/keyboard teachers are not traditionally educated anyway, who is out there teaching people how to approach the major issues that are holding them back in their performance ability?
People are not learning how to trust the guiding principle that life accumulates. Through bad habits we accumulate the bad things in life, and through good habits we learn to accumulate the good things in life. And the choice is ours.
Not trusting in this principle leaves many musicians lost, floundering in the dark, wondering how to get from point A to point B.
My mission is to show musicians how to improve the quality of their thinking in a manner that directly influences the way they view, play, and perform on the keyboards. I cannot realistically reach every single person who needs it, but I will do my part to reach out to as many people as I can for as long as I am able.
If you have a desire to improve the way you play, then it is possible to improve. You wouldn't have a desire to do it unless you had the capability to do it. That is a large point that I want to re-emphasize. This training is not for everybody BUT those who will not benefit from it will not experience the desire in the same ways you do. If you truly wish to become better, and are willing to put in some effort, then your potential to learn is unlimited.
The excuses that you use, the negative stories you tell yourself about why you're not getting better, all of those can be analyzed and dealt with. You can overcome every single one of them as soon as you know what they are. I want you to promise yourself right now that you won't let these mindset problems hold you back any longer.
I wrote a short guide that explains the most common issues I have helped clients and students deal with. I give this guide out to the students who are serious about becoming better, and those that are taking (or trying to take) steps that will move them forward. It's called The Seven Mental Blocks That Keep Musicians From Pursuing Their Art And Unlocking Their True Potential. The guide is a culmination of 28 years of teaching students and learning about these mental blocks that were holding them back. I helped them to work through these and more to take advantage of the way life works (remember, life accumulates!), break through the barriers, and start excelling at their craft.
If you schedule a call with me I will do my best to put you on the right track, and you'll also get a copy of the guide. I can promise you that this is a NO PRESSURE call, I will leave it up to you to decide if you want to continue working with me. You may take my advice and then not contact me for several months. I am totally okay with this, because I believe when I do my best to help people, good things will come my way.
