Inception – Time – Piano Solo by Kyle Landry

Hey guys!
This week I’ll be sharing a piece played not by me, but by someone else. Most of us have heard of him, Kyle Landry.

Check out his channel for his works. He has some great renditions of well and unknown pieces. He even makes his own songs sometimes. Definetely one of the best guys on Youtube!

Enough of this great guy, time to talk about the song. The name of this song is “Time” from the Motion Picture “Inception”. The movie is and should seriously have been seen by anybody who watches movies. Leonardo DiCaprio at his best 😀

The song itself is very reminiscent of time – hence the name.  The piece has a nice progression till the climax at around 3:20. The piece itself is one I really wanna play later on! Seems like a very moving piece to play as it is to listen to.

Here’s the piece for you to judge yourself:

Maurice Ravel – Prélude

Well guys, I know there’s been some delays and I’m very sorry for that.

T’was working a lot on my gaming forum/blog (will reveal at the end of this month) and that made me very tired. Hence, I wasn’t able to upload a new video for like a month. (Make that 5 weeks.)

I’m very sorry for this. Some of you may have thought that I’m dead, but I’m not. School has been very busy as well and just trying to get time in to relax doesn’t leave time for taking 10-30 takes to get a nice recording of a song.

Anywho, been practicing this song for a while now. This song was originally used for sight-reading tests of Grade 8 Piano students. I didn’t do it as a sigh-reading thing… I just played it like I normally would.

The middle part of the song (where the hands go over one-another) is the hardest. The way to learn it? Practice, practice and practice.
As we all know, practice makes perfect – it’s even been shown if you practice a task for 1’000 hours, you will get very good at it. Now, don’t forget that it isn’t all in time. If you practice for more than 2 hours, then you’re doing something wrong. After 2 hours, your mental capicity and concentration gets very low; which translates into not much progress any more. (Might even hinder progress at times.)

 

Enough rambling talking…
I’m sure you’re here to see the next song I uploaded. It’s a short classical piece and-
