THE PIANO COURSE THAT HELPED 1000S OF PEOPLE TO FINALLY PLAY SONGS ON THE PIANO, TO READ MUSIC AND TO IMPROVISE
The way the course is created, with lots of songs and easy explanations of every detail, means that you will advance rapidly every day.
VERY QUICKLY, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY YOUR FIRST SONGS ON THE PIANO
At a very early stage, you will already apply what you’ve learned and start playing songs. First playing the melody with your right hand, later also adding your left hand.
And what makes it a real pleasure to practice, is that you play a song together with a band that accompanies you while you are playing on the piano.
This is what others say about the course:
This is exactly the course I was looking for. I love piano music since I was a kid, however I never had the opportunity to learn. I am a total beginner, I love the way the teacher explains and shows the most important and key things in order to move forward in any lesson. My dream is closer. Thank you so much!(Daniel Madrid Sanchez)
WOW! This is an amazing course. Thank you very much. Highly recommended.(Stefano Buiaroni)
I really liked the way the course was created, with lots of songs, advices, quizzes. It was a challenge, but with perseverance and with a lot of exercises the results appeared. I think the most pleasant moments were when I played the songs from the course, but by far I think it was when I managed to control both hands independently. It was like a revelation. Now I have the needed tools: scales, chords, improvisation techniques, the rest depends on me, a lot of exercises. (Csizmadia Miklos)
LEARN THE PIANO IN A FUN WAY, NOT BY ONLY ENDLESSLY RUNNING UP & DOWN THE SCALES
In order to play the piano or keyboard well, you have to practice scales. But only endlessly going up & down the scales is not very fun, that’s why in this course you practice the scales in songs that contain just the notes of that particular scale.
And of course, the band will accompany you in all the songs.
This makes practicing the scales a pleasure!

It only takes you one click to have access to ALL of this.
You will apply the theory and skills learned during the lectures in songs that you will play together with a band (play-along mp3 files and MIDI files included). In this way, practicing the notes in the scales becomes a pleasure!
