Looking for a sure-fire method to boost your keyboard practice? No problem! Read on…
Along with teaching piano, I have several pupils learning to play keyboard. By ‘keyboard’ I mean electronic or ‘chord’ keyboard: the type where you play a melody in the right hand, chord shapes in the left and the keyboard takes care of the rest with drums, accompaniment parts, multiple instrument voices, extra harmonies, etc. Most of my pupils use Yamaha keyboards such as the PSR-E343 which I strongly recommend for beginners on a budget.

For those who want it, here’s the sheet music to go with the teaching video of the “Superman” theme:
Sheet music – “Superman theme”

In case you haven’t found it yet, here’s a great website for downloading and printing free sheet music for piano: MakingMusicFun. I visit it from time to time to supplement the teaching books I use, particularly when a pupil needs more practice at the current level before progressing to the next page or section.
They have a good selection of scores from beginner to intermediate. Although the music is organised into levels, there is no actual piece-by-piece progression so I wouldn’t recommend using it in place of a progressive course. If you want to learn to play the piano and make steady progress in a clear and logical manner, I would recommend something like the Alfred’s Basic Adult Piano Course. But the Making Music Fun website is a very useful additional resource.
