Hi all, and welcome to another episode of PianoTV!

In today’s episode, I decided to swing in a completely different direction. I thought I’d lighten the mood by putting together 15 piano player problems that most of us go through. At least, these are the ones I constantly go through!


Piano Player Problems

It’s good to know that there are others out there who feel the same way. I know that when I hop on YouTube and listen to music, it can be a little disheartening because there are some ridiculously awesome performers on there (including small children). But save a rare few, all of us have gone through some of these at one time or another.

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a great performer. Performing is a skill unto itself, one that I have not mastered. But that’s okay, because not everyone has to be a performer, and I can still enjoy music at home, by myself, for my own personal reasons. I can also teach it! How does that saying go – those that can’t do, teach? 🙂

Because of that, #1 in the video definitely speaks to me the most!

Extra Notes

Special thanks to Michael for making a cameo in this video, and helping me out with “fancy” camera work (it’s not that fancy).

I also want to mention some things that inspired me to brainstorm my own set of piano player problems: A Tumblr page called “Pianist Problems“, and the TakeLessons blog post on “15 Problems Only Pianists Understand“. Apparently 15 is the magic number. 🙂

Are there common problems you encounter at the piano that haven’t been mentioned in this video? Let me know in the comments.
