The Pentatonic Piano Method is for Adults Who Are Rank Beginners

Posted on: June 18, 2009

The Pentatonic or Five-Note Method is a method which works especially well for the adult beginning pianist.  Most adults simply want to make music and want to learn to play a song quickly.  The pentatonic method makes this possible.

By focusing on the five black keys on the piano the beginner can start to quickly develop technique and eye hand coordination.  Once the beginning adult pianist discovers the joy of playing several songs and has developed some finger dexterity, they are more encouraged to then start the serious study of learning music notation.

Learning note reading skills and applying theory becomes much easier when a person can already play songs on the piano.  With physical skills in place, complex concepts can then be given the attention needed for success of playing the piano.
