PI-101 Top 10 Classical Piano Pieces for Beginners 

In this course, I will show you how to play ten of the most beautiful and famous classical piano pieces for beginners. I am always available for feedback, dialogue, and questions. As a teacher, my goal is to help you master the piano as I do. Teaching you to play the piano is more than a task, it is my passion. I am only satisfied when I see you succeed! It is my hope that you will like my teaching style and that we will hit it off as we together venture out on this musical journey towards piano mastery. Don’t worry if you have never played the piano before: the first week I teach you all you need to get started. On the other hand, if you already know clefs, notes, scales, and chords you can jump straight to the first song. 

Easy piano is my mantra and making it as easy as possible for my students is my goal. I show you how to play the piano one hand at a time: first the right hand, then the left hand, and lastly both hands together. We start with easy songs and gradually move on to pieces that teach you new and better techniques. This is fun: you start out knowing very little, and before you know it you are playing famous classical piano pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Antonín Dvořák! I can’t wait to get started.
