Hi, my name is David Brogan. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn the piano. Today, the internet makes this possible. You can master the keyboard on everything from a phone app to a grand piano. 

Why learn from me? Well, I hold a Masters Degree in Music. It has been my life since turning professional 32 years ago. I am not only a teacher, but a touring musician also. I walk the walk as well as talking the talk. 

My dream is very simple. To help create success stories one student at a time. On Udemy my piano courses have already helped 1000's of students reach their goals. Why not join us?

You know that great feeling you get when you hear your favorite song? Now imagine learning how to play it as well. Allow me to offer you the best solution. Put my courses to the test. Invest in your future self. Hit the "Take this course" button now. You won't regret it. 

"I wish I had never learned to play the piano." Said no-one...Ever.
