Her lessons are available for all ages. To improve your piano skills while attending her piano lessons, Doris recommends practicing regularly. Unfortunately, if you’re the type of person who travels frequently, you might wonder how are you going to practice regularly? 


It’s actually not that difficult. Here are some tips you might want to consider. 


Listen to the Piano Piece Your Studying 

While you’re on a plane, a bus, or a train, try listening to the piano piece you want to master. Just make sure you have your headphones with you. 


Visualize Yourself Playing It

Seeing yourself playing the piece is a powerful way to practice. Keep in mind that athletes are doing it. They just close their eyes, meditate and see themselves performing their sport. You can follow it while playing the piano. But you need to concentrate. It’s actually a skill that you need to cultivate. Visualization is a powerful tool to help you improve your piano skills. 


Invest in a Portable Keyboard

Indeed, visualization is helpful. But you also need to consider practicing with an actual piano. The good thing is that there are portable keyboards on the market that you can use to let you practice while traveling. Most portable keyboards require a connection to a computer. Once connected, you can play the piano anywhere. The price for these keyboards? They are surprisingly affordable. Some of them are even available at less than $80. 


Check in to Hotels with Pianos 

Some hotels have a piano that you can use. Ask if you can use it for at least 30 minutes. Chances are, no one is going to bother you while you practice. However, if you do so, you should be at ease playing the piano with an audience. Keep in mind that you’re in a hotel. However, if you wish to get into serious practice, you may find a hotel that will let you practice in an empty event room.
