The only way to improve your piano ability is to practice consistently.
said: Hi I've been playing piano since I was two years old. I'm 16 now. I only know about four big pieces and I can play by ear. I don't know how to read music and I've never had a lesson but many experts have told me I have the skill of one who's very advanced. I learn from YouTube (THANK GOD FOR YOUTUBE) and I'm trying to learn many more songs. I learn very quickly so I want to learn at least 100 before the end of this year. I think I can do it! How long have you been playing?
Well I’d encourage you to learn how to read music because it’s a great skill to have, and you can learn a lot more! I have been playing for 14 years.
said: do you know where I can find free online sheet music of new songs?
said: When did you begin taking lessons and how old we're you when you when you realized you enjoyed the piano?
I started taking lessons when I was 5, but didn’t really start to enjoy it until I was 12, when I realized that I was actually pretty good :P
said: Absolutely love your blog! Don't know if you'd be able to help, if you can it'd be so helpful! I'm currently teaching a friend how to play piano, she does not know how to read music though, so how can I teach her how to read music? Is there any techniques to teach someone?
Well that all depends on how she learns best :) You could always try teaching her those poems.. Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge/All Cows Eat Grass/ Good Boys Deserve Fudge Always/ spaces spell FACE. But when I teach piano, I always teach them G Clef and F clef rather than Treble and Bass. That way, they know that the G clef circles around the G line, and the F clef has the big dot on the F line. Then, Middle C is the note with the ledger line. That way, they can just figure out the rest of the notes if they know how the staff works and that every space/line is a half step. But really, the only way to learn how to read music is practice, practice, practice! It’s just like learning a new language!
I am very sorry that we havent updated much recently. I update the twitter account a lot more frequently because it’s much less of a hassle :P I promise I’ll post more here asap

said: I love playing piano, I do. I play almost everyday. But I don't feel confident about my skill. Sometimes I feel that I'm not a real pianist because I don't play classical pieces. I can read notes, but not too well. Is it possible to teach myself to play classical pieces?
Honestly, you’d need a piano teacher to truly learn classical pieces. But just because you aren’t classically trained doesn’t mean you aren’t a “true” pianist. The piano is such a diverse instrument, and that’s what I love about it.
