30 day Piano challenge

3 weeks ago, I made it my mission to learn Nuvole Bianche by Ludovico Einaudi in one month. One of the most beautiful piano songs I have ever heard!

Today, I am sad to say I am no where close to where I want to be. At first, I was a little disappointed in myself. However, after self reflection and a little research I devised a plan.

Before I get into the details of my challenge and reveal my master plan, I would like to note that this is an advanced song, which is challenging for even advanced players to learn.

I am a beginner piano player, who has yet to even learn the basics. Although, I am proud to say I have taught myself 4 full songs!

After memorizing the notes and figuring out how to play both hands together. I can play the first minute and a half of the song very slowly and out of tune!

I thought to myself, why can’t I get this down! After reading various comments and tips on how to learn the song, I realized I needed to master the basics before I get the song to where I want.

I stumbled across this great tutorial on learning piano scales and have decided to incorporate this into my piano practice.

I will follow this routine for 30 days for 15 minutes a day along with my Nuvole Bianche practice.

My new goal is to master scales and play the first 2 minutes of the song, in tune, in one month!

I will report back.
