Today I answer a new question from a PianoBlog reader: “What was your early piano experience like, and what are some common mistakes made by beginning piano students?”
My early experience was nothing too out of the ordinary, by the way. I had a neighborhood piano teacher (who was very sweet) but my training in quiet small town Delaware was anything but formal. I think that having to figure out a lot of technique on my own gave me a definite leg-up in teaching later in life however.
As for common mistakes, I really boil it down to one big one I’ve seen over and over.
