this is an interesting thread.

ok a disclaimer first: this might not be for everybody!

for me, when I play pop songs on the piano, i prefer to play pieces with no sharps or flats, or at least few of them. Anyone has this preference too? haha.

Unfortunately, if you guys notice, most of the nicest sounding pieces incorporates sharps and flats... and mind you ALOT of them hahaha

so one tip i would give to anyone who wants to learn to play songs fast, i usually transpose the song to an easier scale:p LOL.

Does that count as a tip?:p

One tip my aunt taught me is if you have a specific point of confusion in a piece, play that measure again and again, until you can play it perfectly 3 times. This really helped me. And thanks, weiwei!

Hi, I bought a book with a DVD, it's called "simply piano by Robin Payne", excellent. She has some very good suggestions for practicing, I would scan the page but I don't know how to attach it here, I don't think it's allowed, I am not very fast at typing, my fingers are slowing down,
( that's why I learn slow songs he he ) But yes, she say's practice very very slowly and only learn 4 bars at a time, use a metronome at a very slow speed, when you can play those 4 bars at the normal speed, start on the next 4 bars etc. If there is a particular place where you always stumble, turn of the metronome and keep working on that part until mastered. That seems to work for me.
If any-one is interested, I found a beautiful piano piece, I have never heard of that song before and stumbled across it while I was doing a search on Google for some other song, it's called "Ashokan Farewell" it gave me goosebumps, there are a few versions on you-tube but I found this to be the nicest one.
Here is the website;

It does have a link to get the score but you have to pay for it, I found a free one, here is the link-

fortepianoszm.com/ASHOKAFAREWELL pdf

you need to copy and paste in Google for this, it's a printable pdf file, it doesn't seem to be too difficult and I can't wait to have a go at it.
I hope this was helpful, let me know.
Regards Joanne.
