The question of “Does a beatmaker need to know how to play the piano” sparks a good conversation.

Depending on if you just sample music, or create original compositions, this question can tip the scale of your opinion, but at the end of the day, I personally feel it’s extremely wise to have an understanding of the basics of piano and music theory.

We cover a variety of points to help you learn the piano from a beatmaker’s perspective, but if you’d like that visual insight to learn the piano, my course Piano Lessons for Beatmakers and Producers is always available to you.

Hope this episode inspires you to learn the piano, learn to improvise, and start making amazingly composed beats!
