Lang Lang was invited by France musique, a foreign YouTube channel, to teach you the secret of practicing piano in front of the camera. How did he tell himself? The contents are as follows:
I think the ideal age from learning piano is from 2 to 100
In the very beginning, I think one hour will be actually good
and then you put like 20 minutes to the basic training,
20 minutes to play some small pieces
and then another 20 minutes try to improvise something on a piano
The most difficult aspect for learning piano is
that you need to be separated between the right hands
and the left hands because you know, this is how you train both brain.
After that it should be easier, a lot of practice of course
Duet and chamber music is the key to learn other instruments,
so you have to work with singers to make piano more like a singing
and then to work with the string players.
Then work with the woodwind, the brass, percussion, guitar,
and then the music becomes much bigger
So it's not enough just typing the note,
it's more like what you are you going to create
or recreate after those notes already existed more than 200 years old,
some of the pieces and to bring your love
and sincereness into the music making
and to make music very lively with colors, with emotions,
with a different mood, with different characters, with different tastes
I think we always need to, for any pianist; we need to keep our passion
and the flame for loving music always there
and if your passion is gone then unfortunately
then everything is gone.
So that is the engine of success
For me, I think music is very visual
It needs to be thinking through like a multimedia screen
when we are performing
not only just looking at the music,
but also to think about what's the surrounding
and make some story behind the theme and how to get connect
to the main melodies, main voices from the piece
and then also to draw a kind of a picture, the emotion picture of the piece.
So you'll find where the top is.
You need to give everything the climax of the piece
and so in way you had you have to be very multifunctional
Music education needs to be balanced, very academic,
which everything needs to be very properly trained
In the same time, every one of us should be an artist
and the artistic training is more working with different people,
talking to people and playing different objects
and learning different subjects
and I think that's another way of learning arts
and then you train professionally technique.
So that's the two worlds are merged
and that's how music education should be
