Skilled musicians have worked on and mastered, to various degrees, the following four quadrants of piano study.
- They've built a repertoire of music they can play. Wise students review this repertoire on a regular basis to build their confidence to perform and also to remind themselves they really can play something.
- They've learned to sight read. Thus, they can play for "fun" and secondly learn new pieces in a much shorter timeframe.
- They understand theory. They have learned to see the patterns in the music. Music is not constructed randomly. And, through extensive ear training they can hear and understand the structures of what they are playing. This really makes playing music easier.
- They have learned to really enjoy building their technique: Scales, chords, arpeggios. Far from drudgery it's an activity they look forward to.
