Description

Can I really learn the piano on my own?

Yes! If you have the right method, you can learn virtually anything on your own.

Hold on a second…we’re missing something aren’t we?

You know what it is too…desire.

Let’s face it, if you’re willing to put in at least a few minutes a day to practice the piano, you’ll make a lot of progress quickly.

However, if you think you can just get the course, do nothing with it, and it will magically teach you piano…you’re wrong.

That’s why I made Core Piano both easy and fun.

The entire program consists of 32 lectures for a total of over 3 hours of material. Each lesson helps you overcome typical challenges that new students face. My 30-Day Success Playbook is a set of lessons that are designed to quickly get you started playing fun stuff at the piano. If you are a beginner, you should start with Day 1. If you are an advanced player, try starting at Day 19. But, this is the cool part: since you can own the course for life, it becomes an encyclopedia for you to refer back to time and time again.

If you’ve wanted to learn the piano, or need to ‘dust off the piano bench’ this is the course for you. Easy-to-follow and fun!

I’ll see you on the inside!
