At one point or another, we have all wanted to play piano — I know I have. Sometimes I’d sit down to try to learn a piece, but I would never know where to start. If only I was good friends with someone like Billy Joel or Elton John, I could become one of the world’s greatest pianists of all time. Even though we may not be lucky enough to have connections with rock stars of the modern world, we are able to communicate through social means to help a fellow musician out.
OnlinePianist, the only online piano tutorial, gives pianists the ability to communicate with each other through social means. With this unique and one of a kind player, pianists at any level are able to learn their favorite songs with a click of a button. Listening to a song at its normal can be tough, especially for a beginner, but with OnlinePianist’s player, the user can set the speed at his or her own pace. Also, as any piano player knows, using both hands can be a complicated task. OnlinePianist gives the user the option to learn each hand separately.
OnlinePianist is not only an online tutorial, but a social venue for pianists. For instance, every user has their own personal wall. This feature enables pianists to post on each other’s wall for feedback regarding a recording or for simply asking a question in the hopes of it being answered. Users are also able to upload their own recordings for a song to the site. If a user would like to make a comment regarding a particular song, he or she is able to. Having an online piano tutorial that is social, creates a world for pianists that was never available to them before.
Finally, my personal favorite social aspect of the website, is the request feature. The request feature allows pianists to request a particular song that may not already be in the database. As a musician myself, I understand that every song out there may not have music available for me to learn from, which is why I am especially fond of this feature.
OnlinePianist gives the user the latest and interactive learning experience online. With its one of a kind player, OnlinePianist uses social means to help pianists learn from each other. Social networking is an important aspect of being a musician. It allows you to connect with others who share the same interest with you, and allows you to learn from others what you can’t teach yourself on your own.
