Practice your vocal lessons with Keyboard to improve your singing...

Keyboard is the simplest of all musical instruments. To learn music in the shortest time., one can start learning it through Keyboard. In olden days, people used to teach music with the help of a harmonium. Even now the Hindusthani Music is being taught along with a harmonium only. When you learn to sing the swaras, the playing of the harmonium helps you to correct the mistakes & learn music perfectly.

Now-a-days, the Electronic Keyboard which is a modernised harmonium, has advanced features like styles, different tones & it has got the transpose facility (which helps to tune the instrument to the sruthi of your voice).

Hence it is better for any music-learner to parallelly learn the Keyboard to strengthen his music education. The Keyboard give a lot of support & guidance for the learner and makes him understand music perfectly.

Which form of Music is easy to Learn ?

Both the forms of music, namely the Indian & the Western are equally easy or hard to learn. But on comparing the notations of both the forms of music, it will be very easy to learn the basics & simple songs like rhymes, bhajans, simple cine songs through the Indian method (in particular Carnatic).

In the Western form, notation will be difficult to understand, as every minute aspect of the song is written in the 'staff' notation. The Western notation is thus a bit hard to learn and read. Moreover, in the Indian method, it is possible to sing the notes very easily, and memorise the notes for any song.

This suggestion is for those who want to learn music in a fast-track. In case you want to learn music seriously and attain proficiency, you can learn any form.

Learning Music through Electronic Keyboard

In general, learning music is a long process and if a person wants to learn music in a methodical way, it will take atleast 6 - 7 years for him/her to reach a normal level in music. Learning music through the Electronic Keyboard is a short-cut, I can say.

You need not have to understand sound and timing. If you press a key, you will hear the swara. The rhythms loops available in the Keyboard will guide you to understand the timing to a certain level. I can say the Electronic Keyboard is a self-learning Instrument, if you have a sence of music. Else, you can learn the principles of music through the keyboard from a teacher and then try playing it of your own, after understanding the basics of music & keyboard.

If you want to attain self satisfaction by playing music of your own, then the Electronic Keyboard is the best choice.
