Piano Yoga Tips By Sonny; Use What You Know!

Use What You Know

It’s not how much you know but how you use what you know…. … is an idea that very much applies to piano playing. You don’t need a PhD in music theory to successfully play piano. If you learn some of the basic concepts of piano playing (especially the chord method and some improvisation techniques) and get in touch with your own inner musical flow you will be playing wonderful music in no time. Also, the expression less is more applies to piano playing as well…it’s not how complex or advanced the music you play is that reflects your success but rather the feelings of enjoyment and satisfaction you get from what and how you play that counts.

Sonny’s Piano Yoga Tips: Breathing

Breathing…..

When playing the piano, try taking some slow, steady, deep breaths. You will find your ability to concentrate and flow will instantly increase and you will also find immediate improvement in your velocity and eye-hand coordination. Try taking several slow, deep breaths when you first sit down at your piano before you play a note. This will help you to relax and reduce performance anxiety. Breathing is one of the most overlooked aspects of playing the piano. As with many other activities which require concentration and physical movement, there is a tendency for people to try too hard and tense up which restricts full respiration which reduces full range of motion in your hands and causes an uncomfortable, anxious feeling due to reduced circulation and CO2 build up. When Playing the Piano remember to Breathe… Relax… Flow… and Enjoy Yourself……! Visit http://www.PianoYogaTV.com for more Piano Yoga Tips, videos and free lessons.

Sonny’s Piano Yoga For Playing Piano Instantly & Improving Your Health & Well Being

I first incorporated the term “Piano Yoga” into my piano teaching approach back in 2004 when I published my first DVD Kit which is copyrighted with the Library of Congress in Washington DC, USA. The DVD Kit was called for lack of a better name at the time “Sonny’s Play Piano Instantly with Little or No Sheet Music”.  Intitially the use of the term “Piano Yoga” was refering to specific stretching and breathing exercises and techniques that one could do before or during piano playing that would enhance your playing and get you more into the flow. I had a small pictoral poster of exercises that came with the kit and a complete video lesson of me demonstrating these exercises and how to breathe diaghraptically. Since that time I have come to realize that my entire approach to playing and teaching the piano is  “Piano Yoga”. Visit http://www.PianoYogaTV.com for more Piano Yoga Tips, videos and free lessons.
