Learn how to play the piano, read
notes, and other piano basics


PianistAko now Online

so, lumelevel-up na tayo... if you're reading this... CONGRATULATIONS!!! for sure the reason why you're here is because you want to play those music sheets that are already in your possession which i bet, you diligently searched all over the World Wide Web and downloaded it for free, right?! wehhh pa-burger ka naman! ^_^v



PianistAkOnline is basically an educational site open to everyone who would like to play and learn the piano for FREE.... AT YOUR OWN RISK hehehe ^_^v paano ba naman kasi... ang plano ko lang eh makatulong ako sa inyong lahat sa pamamagitan ng paggawa ng piano music sheets, tapos mamumroblema lang pala ako ng bonggang-bongga sa dami ng nagtatanong kung paano daw nila babasahin yung mga ginawa ko... haannuubbbbaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! kaya ayan... tutulong na rin lang daw ako hindi ko pa lubus-lubusin... hala sige gumawa ng Piano Tutorials.... sa susunod nga mag-aral kayong mag-magic! hehehe joke... *peace*


Why piano?
yeah, why not?! ^_^v well, kanya-kanyang trip yan eh... others would want  to learn how to play the violin, guitar, some would even want drums, triangle? hehe but since a lot of you are asking "how to read piano sheet music" eh might as well, gumawa na lang ako nito that could somehow help those people na gustong matuto magplay ng piano... by hook or by crook...


Paano nga ba ako nagsimula?

hmmm to make a brief history of my piano career ( if that's how you want to call it, career! ok fine! ) i started way back my elementary days pa. it was an unplanned encounter hehe. all i did before was to accompany a friend during her piano lessons or memorize some songs, piano music sheets which are by the way my friend's homework but i ended up being her guinea pig hehehe but i didn't mind anyway :p and take note, i don't know how to read sheet music yet, i had really no idea what a sheet music or a "piano piece" is as in pinapa-memorize lang sa akin yung tutugtugin niya then i'll play it sa piano... but it was fun though :p. also, i had a childhood friend who happens to be a good pianist and i always envy her for playing those black/white keys beautifully... in short you can say na INGGITERA ako... but not to compete... just to learn. i then asked my mom one day about it and she said YES ( which later on i found out the real reason why she agreed: it's because she's a frustrated musician hehe :p she always wanted to play the piano pero matigas daw mga daliri niya so ako na lang daw! haha ) to make the long story short, i took piano lessons, but stopped, then went back again to continue my lessons, stopped again, went back again, stopped ( more like pause na ata ito hehe ) oh man! hanggang sa hindi na ako nakabalik to continue my lessons because busy na sa school/college... but i did continue playing the piano ( school plays, church, choir, weddings, etc.)  up to this day =p


it could have been my profession now if only i didn't pursue my dream of becoming a doctor. kaso pati pagdo-doctor ko hindi na natuloy pero okay lang. people who knew me thought i'd take up MUSIC pero ganito talaga buhay... anu't ano man eto pa rin ako, bagsak ko pa rin pala ay sa linya ng music... pero sideline nga lang (  but i intend to continue... 2nd course? why not! hehe ^_^v )


enough of my story... let's now go to what you'll see here on this site...


well, i won't be tackling the fundamentals of piano ( in-depth ) or history or anything that will bore me and you.. what you will see here are the basics of learning how to play the piano at the same time some tips na pwede kong i-share sa inyo on piano playing... i won't guarantee that you'll be like BEETHOVEN or MAKSIM MRVICA or CECIL LICAD in an instant! 'wag kayong ambisyoso't ambisyosa! gising gising! ( for people like me that took formal piano lessons, eh buwan/taon binibilang namin bago kami natutong tumugtog ng maayos :p hehehe ). i'll just post few lessons para somehow matugtog mo naman yang mga piyesang hawak mo at hindi mo lang basta titigan hanggang sa maging bato... okie?!


REMINDER:
these informations are for EDUCATIONAL purposes only. if you were to ask me, it's still best if you can avail music lessons with a piano teacher ( sencia na kahit gusto ko mag tutor ulit sa piano dahil sayang, moolah din yun eh hindi na kaya ng hectic schedule ko! nde naman ako bionic woman noh ^_^v ). hindi ito recommended sa mga bata ( so parental guidance na pala ang site ko hehehe... ) what i mean is.... this site is purely intended sa mga taong nakakaintindi na... nakakapagbasa na.... at hindi na kelangan ng patnubay mula sa mga magulang joke... :p more on run through / brief outline kasi ang ginamit ko dito in explaining the lessons.... kaya kung baby pa utak... avail a piano teacher nearest you! hindi ko gustong mawalan ng raket ang mga piano teachers hehe... hindi rin naman ako super henyo... lagi ko ngang sinasabi marunong lang ako pero hindi magaling... tamang gusto ko lang maishare sa mga taong nagbabasa nito ang gusto nilang malaman... ano pa nga ba kundi ang matutong mag-piano. isa pa, more on PAGBABASA ang gagawin mo dito dahil wala pa akong time para gumawa ng video tutorials... nagkalat naman sa youtube yun eh, dun nalang kayo maghanap... hehehe :p but then again, sa mga taong mahilig mag-short cut, mahilig sa libre, tara usap tayo! ( boy abunda is that you?! lelz ) ^_^v


oh and btw, i'll be using tagalog / english sa pagi-esplika nga mga bagay-bagay so that i can elaborate the topic well and syempre para naman maintindihan nyong mabuti kasi for sure naman mga kababayan ko ang magbabasa nito... on the other hand, for those people who can't understand tagalog, i'm very sure there are lots of online piano tutorials out there... google is your bestfriend! ^_^v


so, if you're ready... then let's proceed to Piano Basics

Hi poe

pwede magtanong medyo personal na tanong hehehe medyo lang naman poe hehe. Nung kayo po ba nag-aral, lahat ng chords pinag aralan nyo?ako po kc hanggang 7chords lang po, sa palagay ko po kc kung marunong kana magbasa ng notes bakit kailngan pa mga chords?kaya yun nagfocus na po ako sa mga topic mo about sa mga notes.pero kung may reason po kung bakit kailangan pag-aralan muna yun then pag-aaralan ko po kasi sabi mo eh,joke hehe,kasi gusto ko matuto kaya pag-aaralan ko ^^

Mark kulit ^_____^

heide abot said...

@Mark,

hahaha dapat magpabayad nko sau eh... dami mo tanong lulz... :D

kailangan ang chords... mas konti nga ito compared sa guitar chords na sobrang dami... and may pattern lahat ang piano chords na ito based sa key signatures... kelangan dahil hindi lang naman limited sa pagbabasa ng nota ang pagiging pianista... un ay kung gusto mo lang naman tuklasin ang mga ibang bagay na pde mong magawa bukod sa pagbabasa lang ng notes sa piyesa... kasama talaga ito sa piano lessons, pero dahil karamihan ngaun ng mga taong gusto matuto ng piano eh shortcut method ang ginagawa they tend to skip the basics. gusto derecho kagad chords tapos magrereklamo kasi wala silang maintindihan kapag piyesa na ung kaharap nila... step by step kasi ang pagaaral ng chords eh per family/major/key signature... but once you get the pattern i'm pretty sure mahahalikan mo ung piano mo hahahahaha i'm not saying memorize ko lahat ang tawag sa mga chords na yan... pero by doing this lessons pati ako napapa-review "ah eto pala un...." kasi nga tagal ko nang walang piano lessons noh... lulz... ako eh nago-offer lamang para matuto kayo magpiano and sure na sure ako na may matutunan kayo sa site ko... hindi man kayo maging henyo tulad ng mga batikang pianista ol ober d world eh atleast ung mga piyesang ginawa ko at ginagawa ko eh maiintindihan nyo at maipplay nyo ng according sa pagkakagawa ko (base narin sa pagkakarinig ko) un lang... mahaba na ito... lulz ;p

Mark said...

tnx tnx tnx bait mo talagaaaaaaaa, pati fs mo pala tinignan ko na para makilala cno nga c Heide Abot, danda ka pala and funny sa mga pics mo ^__^
N'way oo nga po may pattern nga po cla, once na alam ko na po iapply mga naituro mo sakin chaka ko na muna po babalikan mga chords mas nagagandahan po kc ako pag notes parang kumakanta na rin pag tinutugtog ^__^ love it, again tnx tnx tnx,wala po kc pambayad ng tutor kaya nung makita ko po site mo natuwa po agad ako tnx Bro, tnx ate, sana po marami kapa pong matulungan ^__^ GODBLESS

pansin ko nga po ako lagi nagtatanong hehe cnxa na po kung makulit basta tnx sau hahaha

Hay, dahil dito sa mga lessons na ito, nabuhay muli ang interes ko sa pag-ppiano..i mean, natugtog pa din ako, kaso "tugtog ng tamad" na ang ginagawa ko. Pero dahil dito, bumalik yung memories ng hirap ko at pagka-adik sa pagtugtog ng piano nung 3rd year highschool ako (at inlove na inlove pa..hehehe <3). I'm at my 4th year college now, btw..hehe.. at nakak-relate ako sa lesson-tigil-lesson-tigil na ginawa ni Ate Heide magmula nung grade 4 na nag-start ako mag-lesson..at tuluyang tumigil nung mag-college..hahaha.. Na-appreciate ko na ulit ng malalim yung pagtugtog ko..at dahil jan, balik aral ako (staring ulit sa basics, para SWEET!)...walastek, naiiyak ako.(eeeeehhh!) hahahahha..

Thanks Ate heide! Isa kang inspirasyon! Rakenrol! =))

Lea said...

hello po. panu po sa music sheet kpag may for voice at piano? una po b muna tugtugn ung voice?at next ung grand staff na piano? tnx po in advance.

heide abot said...

@Lea,
kung alin lang ang part na gagamitin mo yun lang ang babasahin mo, if you're a singer of course yung VOICE part ang susundan mo, if you're the PIANIST, piano part naman. kung kakanta ka and a pianist will accompany you, magkaiba kayo ng babasahin at susundan pero kailangan you're both on the same page, same section or else... magkakalat kayo :)

heide abot said...

@alguiven
good luck sa'yo! keep on learning :)

@Jehanna
tulad ng nabanggit ko dito sa isang post, "you can never be too old to learn how to play the piano...." it's never too late to learn something you like. kahit naman ako when i started taking piano lessons i was already 9 na. had i known na possible palang matutunan ang pagplay ng piano thru lessons, siguro as early as 4-5 y/o nagpa-enroll na ako kasi i can read/count na at that time. kaso ayun nga mejo late but it didn't stop me to learn how to play this instrument. the ADVANTAGE if you started early is, mas marami kang matututunan, mas mate-train kang mabuti, mas maraming possibilities :)

on the other hand, even if you started late, kung gusto mo naman diba mas madali ang progress yun nga lang yung chances na tamad na yung mga daliri mo mas mataas hehehe and maswerte na talaga ngayon kasi maraming resources on how to play the piano. sa case ng piano teacher, hindi mo sila masisisi if they ask for a higher fee pero sa'kin basta reasonable walang problema. kung nasa 5k a month ang lesson kahit ako aayaw! lalo na kung beginner hahaha ano pero mas maganda ang one on one lessons compared sa self study that is if you have time. kung busy naman tulad ng iba dito na may mga trabaho na, self study is sufficient basta pumili lang ng tamang resources. :)

how to count the 8th note follow by 1 quarter note in 1measure sample title of the is star dust? thank you

Anonymous said...

Hi. I thought you're a music major..hehe. anyway, thanks for your arranged pieces..kapagod kasi mag-arrange ng pyesa for other people kaya ngda-download nlang ako sa website mo.hehe..
Please continue what you've started. You're a great help to people who want to learn about music and to those people who're lazy enough not to arrange pieces for the "not-the-oido-type" musicians. xD
