Introduction : I always used to like to listen to music. I always wanted to play a instrument which would help me understand more about music. In Jan 2020 i bought my first keyboard to learn. I used different online handles to learn this instrument. I used HDPiano.com which helped me learn different songs with detailed tutorials. Also some videos available on youtube.
LO Catered : 1,2,3,4
LO1 : Identify your own strengths and develop areas of personal growth
The main weakness or the area in which I needed to improve was to learn how to play keyboard using both hands at a particular time. To overcome this weakness I started slowly with solo different hands and then slowly combining both of the hands and then playing a tune. Focusing on these helped me overcome the problem which I was facing preventing me from trying different and hard music tunes which I wanted to learn.
LO2 : Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process
Learning a new instrument by my own was getting a bit difficult in the beginning as there by was no particular person who could help me physically to play the instrument. But as the time passed by and I started practicing more it helped me play the instrument even better and I overcame the challenge which I was facing.
LO3 : Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience
As I was learning keyboard from scratch by my own I had to create a plan which would help me easily understand the instrument. So I created a plan with all the timings and the different points which I going to learn when. As i created a plan it helped me very much to learn the instrument.
LO4 : Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences
For learning the instrument by myself and watching the different videos available on the internet needed my commitment. Due to my commitment in these times I was able to learn the instrument by my own and also the help of the different music and keyboard tutorial videos available on the web.
Conclusion : At the end this was a very good experience. As I liked music i helped me even more to how to music is played. Also learning this instrument by my own without any person helping me it make me very self reliant.
