Learn to play piano and keyboard lesson series on downloadable videos

Rightly said. It's not a big deal to instruct and impart technical accuracy such as hitting the right notes, timing & rhythm, etc. All of these are objective. The "emotion" part of it is very subjective and very hard to explain and impart to a student.

I feel that it only comes (and gets better) with age and experience as you immerse yourself into the finer nuances of music and critically analyse every piece of music with a fine-toothed comb. Young students, however brilliant, simply don't get the "emotion" part. But if they do eventually last (say, for 10-15 years), their music will sound more soulful!

Great page.

I couldn't agree more. So many students are brought up with real fear that they will "make a mistake." Rarely do they learn to be an artist - truly expressive in the style appropriate to their genre. That's one of the big reasons I fell in love with swing music. I really enjoy improvising and playing expressively. The music is "alive" - different every time!

Great post. Thank you!
