The Problem with Piano (Solo vs Ensemble Musical Performance) - Sharon Bill Music Matters Vlog
The piano is a great instrument - probably my favourite instrument. When playing piano you can be your own one-man band. You can play melody and harmony, as far as your dexterity allows - it’s like having an orchestra at your fingertips. However, herein lies part of the problem - you are playing on your own. You just can’t beat music-making together. The sense of performing as part of a group, or duet, is unbeatable. It’s kind of addictive! If you get the chance, seek out the opportunity to play piano duets, even if it’s just with your teacher. Playing music with friends is simply the best!
