Why do you want to learn piano? (Tutorial Inside) 🎹

May 16, 2019

What is your goal in learning to play the piano?

For others, maybe it’s to have a hobby outside of work… One that can help you relax, decompress and remove yourself from the stressors of the day.

But for some of you, your goal goes even further…
Yes, maybe those things are true of you, but they’re not the biggest reason.

I believe for a lot of you, the biggest reason you’re wanting to learn piano is to eventually be able to lead a congregation, friends, family in worship through music.
