Description

Have you always wanted to play the piano, but were not sure if you want to fully commit to private lessons or an expensive course?

If so this course is for you!

I wanted to create a very basic course for a complete beginner.  

This course does simply one thing - demystifies the keyboard.

If you look at a piano and think, "this is too complicated to learn", this course will hopefully dispel those thoughts.

The piano is much more logical and easier to understand than most people think.

I will teach you... 

  • How to purchase your first keyboard (amongst the many, many, many keyboards that are out there)
  • The 12 unique notes that make the 88 keys of the piano easy to memorize
  • How the piano is spaced out
  • How the piano relates to other instruments
  • How the piano relates to singers

By the end of this course the piano itself, will make a lot more sense!


Who is the target audience?
  • Complete beginners who have never touched the piano
  • This course is not for someone who has taken a piano lesson before
