If you’re interested in playing the piano, there are many different genres to choose from. From classical music to jazz, it can be difficult to decide which style best suits your tastes. The following blog post will give you an overview of some popular genres and their features so that you can make a more informed decision about what type of music you want to play.
When you are currently taking piano lessons, then here are some of most popular genres that you may want to explore:
1. Classical piano.
For most people, the first piano they learn how to play is usually classical. This style has strong technique and knowledge of music theory requirements which make it difficult without those skill sets for other styles like jazz or blues; however, any type can still be learned through practice as long you know where your weaknesses are in terms on sound production -this will help bring out what each genre sounds like more accurately.
Classical piano is often the starting point for many when taking piano lessons, as it requires good technique and knowledge of music theory. Grand pianos are great choices for this genre because they make more sound with their lower notes than grand or upright acoustic ones would while still providing deep bass lines that can really resonate in your chest cavity if you’re playing an instrument like drums.
Jazz piano has evolved over the course of a century, and its roots can be found in ragtime. It eventually became heavily influenced by subgenres such as blues or swing–although there are many different names for these types depending on who you ask.
The sound is unconventional with “all wrong notes” sounds that somehow turn out sounding beautiful; this genre consists mostly of experimental noises from seemingly unrelated music making traditions like Indian raga so often heard at jazz clubs today instead featuring classical techniques more typical to other styles.
3. Christian/Liturgical piano.
Profoundly moving and thought-provoking, liturgical piano music has its roots in classical styles but is still filled with modern pop elements. The sound of an acoustic upright piano will always remain deeply ingrained within one’s mind whereas other instruments such as organs or grand pianos can be heard more prominently at churches who prefer these media over keyboards.
It is mainly because they offer a warmer tone while still remaining light on volume compared to other types like synths which produce louder noises when played loudly enough without being too booming.
4. Pop/rock genres.
Pop/rock is one of the highest-paying styles around, with lots and lots of paid work ranging from cover bands to wedding gigs; session recordings or even touring performances.
This music genre has such great flexibility in terms of sound exploration because it changes constantly – there’s no telling what you’ll end up playing on any given day (or week!) What makes things even better though? That all these benefits come packaged together under one genre: pop/rock music. With this style comes both singing ability and exquisite keyboard skills which look outstanding during live shows too.
