Have you ever thought about creating and filming your own course, but didn't really know how? Does the experience of other instructors tell you that you might need tons of expensive equipment and software?

My name is Kaiwen, and I am currently studying Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in Germany and have been teaching private piano lessons for 2 years.
Music among technology and automotive design, has always been a huge part of my life, ever since I started learning to play the piano at a very young age. Over the years I have developed a deep passion for this instrument and at some point decided to experiment with popular music.
I have been playing the piano for almost 17 years alltogether and arranging my own cover songs for almost 10 years now.
Having started out learning classical music I soon discovered that playing popular music can be more fun and is much quicker to learn by ear rather than using sheet music.
