Have you taken years of piano lessons? If you have, Ideally you would think that you are beyond an expert at playing the piano. Nothing can stop you! However, you might not feel that way. You might feel like you've hit a dead-end. You might feel like you don't know how to improve your skills from here. So what should you do? Here are 4 tips!

1. When you listen to any song, you will notice that it follows a pattern. By this, I mean there is a certain structure of chord progressions and sections. Don't believe me? Listen to an album by The Beatles and you will understand. One way of expanding your piano skills is to listen to some of your favorite songs and listen to the patterns that are in each song. This is a great way to help you to learn to pick up more songs.

2. Like the previous tip, put a focus on listening to music. Listen to every little note. Songs usually consist of many different instruments. All of them playing certain notes and it all comes together perfectly. Understanding songs more is a great way of advancing your piano skills, as mentioned in the previous tip. Also, do you know how to read Piano sheet music? If you don't, learn how! Once you know how, you will be able to easily learn many new songs!

3. Spend some time with other musicians. It's best to spend time with musicians that are really good, professionals, and even those around your skill level. You can hear the different skills and figure out just how you want to play the piano. You can also focus on just how they play the piano. How do they sit? How do their muscles move? There's nothing wrong with copying a thing or two from the professionals. After all, you want to excel your own music skill! Sometimes you do this by learning from the professionals.

4. Make sure to spend time each day playing the piano! This is so important. You really need to get into a daily routine of playing the piano. Now, this doesn't mean you have to play for hours and hours each and every day. But try and play for at least 15 minutes. Even if it's in the morning after breakfast, after dinner, or even before bed. Playing the piano each day keeps your skills fresh and helps you to improve your skills. Remember, practice makes perfect!
