How to play 'Polly Put the Kettle On' on the piano

Playing 'Polly Put the Kettle On' is fun and easy. Learn the three things you can do to play this music better and how you can increase your enjoyment and satisfaction. Get inspired, here.

Listen to recordings first

It is a good idea to listen to recordings of the music first, before you play. If you can, find several recordings so that you expose yourself to the different playing styles. Since you are playing the music, it is best to get instrumental recordings only. It is easy to see how you can be inspired in this way. Do this in a free-flowing manner and let your intuition run on its course. Enjoy listening to the piece in various styles. You may be surprised at what comes up when you play afterwards.

Sing it!

You can sing it in any way you like, be it singing the song or the tune itself. What you are really doing is priming your intuition. Enjoy this and do it with your kids if they want to come along for the ride. When you are confident, try singing and playing at the same time, even if you can only use your right hand. In time, the left hand naturally 'itches' to join the fun on the keyboard and with you. There is nothing fixed and there are no tests. Everything happens naturally. You can surely enjoy the creative process! Some people put on the lyrics on the music sheet, but there is likely no need to do so. In fact, who needs the music sheet? When you enjoy yourself, everything happens intuitively.

Act it out

If you have kids, this one can be much fun, especially if there are at least two of them. This is because one will be Polly and the other, Sukey and the more it is, the merrier will it be. You certainly don't need anything fancy as simple toys are all that is necessary. The key lies in the theme of enjoyment circulating among all of you since toys are merely tools. Even the music that you play is a tool, only more advanced. You can start this off without playing any music. Later, act out the little skit in accompaniment to your playing. It is indeed a simple family skit that everyone can join.
