Trying to learn the piano for music production from watching YouTube videos that teach you classical piano techniques? Sadly, these videos/techniques don’t fully relate to us beatmakers playing the piano.

We need to learn improvisation, as well as how to create catchy loops.

In simple terms, a piano works by having the same 12 notes that repeat (octaves). We then pick a key + scale, which will tell us what notes we’re actually allowed to play. Our notes/chords have to have these notes, and you’re on your way to improvising!
