"For years I've been wanting to learn the piano, but always postponed it as it seemed so difficult. Half way through this course I was already trying all kind of things out on my piano, and was in shock that it all worked out." Gregory, One of our students.
"Making something that appears extremely complicated into something simple and understandable is an art. This course is the first I have ever done that had me hooked from the first minute and Simon is a superb instructor" Gerry

It's pretty clear to me what actually works when explaining things to people. However good our intentions, long courses that offer 40 or 80 hours of instruction just gather digital dust, remaining unwatched, however good your intention is to eventually get around to watching.
What actually works for most people are short bite sized practical courses, that scaffold knowledge. If you want people to really flourish in their piano playing then you help learners discover for themselves the joy of playing the piano as quickly as possible - learning through playing. The words joy and fun are the most important and motivating when learning!
This course is designed to be just long enough to give you exactly the knowledge and confidence beginners need to play what they want to play, yet it is short enough that you can actually complete it (with no filler or rote learning).
Just think for a second about actually being able to play the songs you love on the piano after just an hours practical demonstration. How cool would that would be? Thousands of online students have discovered it really is possible, in just one hour, to learn enough to have a lifetime of fun and enjoyment playing the piano. And you can do it using a completely different approach using shapes and patterns rather than notes and theory.
