Description

Brand new to music? 

Have some music theory gaps you need to fill? 

Always wanted to play the piano, but didn't know where to start?

If any of these are true, take this course!

I want you to learn piano and music theory quickly.

That's why I worked hard to make this the most compact, engaging, and easy to follow piano and music theory course on Udemy. 

I cut out the fluff, logically structured lectures, and worked hard to lay out concepts clearly.

By the end of this course you'll understand

  • Proper piano technique

  • The white and black notes of the piano keyboard

  • The elements of music (notes, intervals, chords, scales)

  • The Major and Minor Keys

  • Rhythmic Subdivision

  • How to read sheet music (the notes on a page)

This will give you a solid foundation to pursue more advanced study.  Whether that's with a private teacher, or more advanced piano courses on Udemy.

Learning the keyboard / piano is also a great instrument to start with and will help you learn other instruments faster.

I think you'll really enjoy this course and I look forward to seeing you on the inside!
