Pianist, Music teacher and Computer Engineer

My name is Oluwayanmife Akintola although you can also call me Yummy. I am a teacher at udemy. I am also an experienced Pianist/Keyboardist and I have been playing for many years. Furthermore, I also have a Computer Engineering Degree.

Currently I have 2 courses on Udemy and those 2 Courses are: 

1. "How to play Piano - Go from a beginner/intermediate to a Pro"

2. "Learn to Read & Write Music to play Piano & more Instruments"

"How to play Piano - Go from a beginner/intermediate to a Pro" Course - Paying for offline lessons with a teacher for Music lessons can be expensive and there are people that can't afford it; this course offers a better alternative for offline lessons and at a cheaper price. This course is for everyone that wants to learn how to play the piano or/and for people that want to learn about Music Theory.  This course is designed to teach you how to play the piano by taking you from a beginner level (with absolutely no experience) to a professional level. In this course, you will learn about many Scales, Chords, how to play by ear, Music Theory, Modulation, Transposition, Rhythms, Modes, Improvisation & more skills. By the end of this course, you will be able to play any song you like. By the end of this course you would have mastered all the different topics that the course includes.

"Learn to Read & Write Music to play Piano & more Instruments" - Knowing how to read & write music is a valuable skill. Knowing how to read music will aid your learning of many musical instruments. Knowing how to read music can also help you to write your own song. The skill of knowing how to read music is something that can be applied to playing many instruments because the music theory behind many instruments is the same. Knowing how to read music will help you to know how to play many instruments like the Piano, the Violin, the Saxophone and other instruments.
