Counting Stars - OneRepublic - Easy Piano Tutorial for Beginners.

Learn how to play your first song on piano: Beginners can learn this song in one hour. You will play with both hands but the left hand is very easy because the hand position stays the same as you play.

Use the sustain pedal for this song. You can let it depressed all the time if you are a beginner. With more experience, you will hear that the sound is better when you release and depress the pedal just before you start a new serie of notes.

I started learning piano a few months ago. Before I could play a piano song, I looked for easy songs to play on piano. Most of them are too difficult for beginners, and when they are not, they sound like "kids songs".

It's why I share my own tutorials of easy piano songs I practiced. I think it can help beginners because the tutorials are easy but they sound really good on piano.

It is the secret for a successful learning: staying motivated because you can play easy piano songs quickly.
