Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming sites in the world. This platform attracts tons of music producers and artists from all over the world, each of them trying to sell their pieces of art to the public. As such, many pianists have started using Spotify as a platform to start marketing their covers to the people. However, finding these covers is not always an easy feat, especially if you have not interacted with the platform enough. As such, you might need some help to maneuver through easily.
That said, if you aren’t conversant with Spotify yet, it would be advisable first to get the app and interact with it for some time first. You can download it from the Apple Store or Play Store, and it is compatible with any mobile device, be it android or iPhone. However, it is essential to note that even though it is free to download, some of the best features that come with the app will attract a premium subscription from you. However, this should not be cause for alarm, as the prices are affordable enough to fit within your budget.
After downloading the app, you will have to sign in for you to get a customized music account made just for you. Over time, this account will pick out your music “taste” and tailor your playlists that match.
How do you find these covers on Spotify?
Once you have logged into your Spotify account, you will see the search bar right at the bottom of the homepage. The position might be different, as you might be using different versions of the same app. However, it will be in a conspicuous position for you to see it.
Here, you will type in the name of the piano covers you are looking for. From here, the Spotify algorithm will analyze the millions of songs and covers and select you several covers that match your search. Additionally, the app will also recommend several accounts that post such covers regularly. With all these options to choose from, you can start from the top selection downwards, examining each of them and determining whether it’s what you want.
You might be lucky enough to find an account with multiple covers for genres you are interested in. For further references, you can follow these accounts so that they can appear in your library every time you open the app. This way, you will never be left behind, even when they update their media.
Why Piano Covers?
As a piano player, piano covers are critical in your journey towards growing your talent. For one, they will help you grasp music theory from top drawer pianists who have been doing this for ages. With these covers, you can take your time to learn about the song, the components harmonized to bring out a beat or melody, and many other parts of the music theory. This makes you a better player all around, as you can use them (covers) to break down the songs into their essential elements, grasp the basics, and use them to improve how you play.
