Description

This course has a single goal in mind: to teach you how to play any song on the piano in a practical way without needing notes or sheet music. Most often you wont be carrying around a binder full of sheet music to play for your friends or family or even yourself. Therefore it is essential skill to be able to play any song with just an online chord sheet or purely by ear. This is exactly what this course is going to teach you. You will be able to play any relatively contemporary song on the piano, whether it's a song you heard on the radio, or a friend has just requested you play her favorite song. Most courses focus on intense music theory, notation, and note reading which are all impractical and not usually available to you when you need it most. Its time to learn how to play without these. Whether you're a virtuoso or you've never touched a piano in your life, join with us and many other students to learn this invaluable skill.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to learn piano or has learned before and doesn't want to rely on sheet music or simply wants a different perspective.
  • Any age, any level, all welcome.
