If you want to learn piano, and you’re already quite good at reading music, then it is a good idea to take up the instrument. It’s fun and relaxing, and when your musical abilities increase in leaps and bounds (which they will), you’ll be able to enjoy playing your favorite pieces.
The problem with the piano face is that it doesn’t tell the whole story. In fact, if you use a piano as an example to explain everything about music, then I would have to say that even a sheet of paper would be better than a flat surface.
What I mean by this is that you can create a melody and then put it into words or vice versa. When you do this, you will find that the story loses its importance because people who are reading your article will know how it ends before they begin reading it. Therefore, when they come across some new information in the middle of your writing, their eyes might wonder what exactly is going on in the sentence or paragraph after them. If they don’t understand what you are trying to convey through your writing at all times, then there’s no point in being able to read between the lines which are usually very obvious anyway.
This means that for me at least there is no difference between knowing how to play piano and being able to write about music because if people don’t understand what you’re saying, then why should they care? So instead of thinking of learning how to play piano as something different from knowing how to write about music, think of both things as one step towards becoming an expert writer with great writing skills which could be used in many different ways depending on where your interests lie!
How difficult is it for a beginner to play Unravel from Tokyo Ghoul on piano with Animenz’s arrangement?
Yeap it’s super hard, but it’s not impossible to learn. I m a grade 5 pianist, I used about two months to learn this, and i practiced like 2 hours every day. I had a really hard time while practicing it, but trust me, the satisfaction you gained after learning it is beyond your imagination. I couldn’t say i have mastered the pieces until today, but at least i can play it. If you need help on learning this, you can refer to youtube. There is a tutorial that really teaches you to step by step to play animals unravel. Hope this helps.
, I read all English translated manga/watched anime(major fan)
I myself am a beginner(and know how hard beginning piano is), and after watching it played, it seems really hard.
The beginning has a good bit of coordination between the hands, but the rest really emphasizes the differences between the hands. The Left-hand plays the harmony and the right-hand plays an equally paced melody. They feel like their own entities, so it would be hard for a beginner(like myself) to play it. On top of that, there’s a lot of moving the hand around which might also be very difficult.(I may not be an expert, but I know if I tried playing this after my year’s experience, I would have A LOT of trouble)
