There comes a time in our piano playing and learning that we just aren’t “feeling it”. Meaning…there’s something a bit off, but we can’t really put our fingers on what it is.
We may practice more and harder just to find that we’re really not feeling any differently.
Have you thought that it may be that you simply need a new and/or better piano?
Many times we start learning to play the piano on whatever instrument we have available to use. It may be an old family piano or an electric keyboard from the 1990’s.
These instruments work very well for us in the beginning. We’re focused on mainly learning the notes on the keyboard, how to read music, how to count, how to recognize key signatures, play dynamics, and a lot of other things that we need in order to progress in our playing.
But once we’ve gotten these basics down, we may notice that the sound of our instrument doesn’t match our ability to play, or it doesn’t meet our needs at a more advanced level.
There is a difference in the sound and capabilities of different instruments.
Take a look at how your needs have changed since you first started playing the piano. Does your current instrument still meet your needs and does it allow you to grow and play more advanced music or do you feel a bit stifled and stuck in one certain sound and mode?
Why don’t you head out to a few stores that sell keyboards and try some out? It’s the best way to see how you connect to different instruments and hear how they sound. Try something completely different from what you are playing now, just to see the range of possibilities that you have.
Upgrading your piano might just be the exact thing you need to get out of a slump and reignite your passion for playing the piano!
