Description

A WELL-QUALIFIED AND FRIENDLY TEACHER

Hi, I'm Carl and I have been a piano teacher for over thirty years. I have a degree in music, a postgraduate degree in teaching and I hold a piano diploma through the Victoria College of Music.


PRIMER BOOK INCLUDED WORTH £9.99

Through my specially written 50 page piano primer book, full of engaging pieces and downloadable as part of the course, you will learn the basics of the art of playing the piano. Lesson by lesson I will discuss and demonstrate each piece, showing you the tricks and time-savers to maximize your practice. This is the same book that I use with my private students.


GETTING YOUR HANDS ON THOSE KEYS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE

Before you know it, in fact before you learn to read a note, you will be working on your first tune. As you move on to reading simple music you will learn how to practice in ways that support progress rather than waste time; learn how to read music with ease, going beyond letter names to utilize the underlying shapes of melodies; learn how to move around the keyboard with confidence using hand positions to allow you to keep your eyes on the music as much as possible - a sure way to succeed quicker; and learn how real music is about so much more than the individual notes.


FEEDBACK IS IMPORTANT

Like my private students, the issues you face as you progress through the course will be different from the next person. Because of this, feedback is extremely important. Therefore, as part of the course, you will have the opportunity to send me videos for critiquing plus I will always be on hand to answer any questions you might have.


REAL PIANO LESSONS

This is a deep dive into piano playing that will set you up for playing the piano music of some of the great composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Bach and will give you pleasure for years to come.

All in all my piano method is the next best thing to having one-to-one piano lessons, but at a fraction of the cost and with the ability to schedule your learning to times that suit you.


Don't put it off any longer, there's no time like the present and with a 30-day money back guarantee there's no risk. Start your wonderful journey into the world of the piano today.

Who this course is for:
  • People with little to no experience of playing the piano who would like to fulfill their musical potential.
  • People interested in more traditionally based piano lessons such as you would get by visiting a piano teacher.
