Piano Duets For Four Hands – Suitable if you have a companion to play the piano
If you have a companion…or another person in your family… who can play the piano, you may give Piano duets a try.
The piano duet is also known as piano four hands and it is a type of music wherein two pianists play on the same keyboard; given the size of the Piano, this should be perfectly okay!
Lot of teachers resort to Piano duets to help their students overcome technical challenges related to sight reading and rhythm.
This is an effective method of teaching since it is interactive and involves both the student as well as the teacher in the learning process.
This method in turn helps the students to improve their playing.
