Course Description

If you want to play the piano more fluently, then this course will give you the resources to achieve that goal. We have several ways to learn, including videos, sheet music, and finger exercises. Beginners as young as 4 can use it to start getting the muscle memory to become a great pianist, but it can help players at any level.

Try this course out if you want more speed and accuracy in your piano playing.

What are the requirements?

  • Students should have access to a piano or a keyboard. Size and style doesn't matter.
  • All ages are welcome to take this class but children who can't read should be accompanied by someone to navigate and read select sections.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Increase the speed and fluidity of your piano playing
  • Play five piano exercises with consistency and ease
  • Play piano exercises with two hands confidently
  • Bring your piano playing up to the next level, whether your just beginning or have played for years

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is great for people who are interested in learning piano. It will take off months of private lessons which could save you hundreds of dollars.
  • This course can help intermediate or advanced students as an addition to their own practices.
  • This isn't a course for someone who wants to learn just a song or two. It's for someone who wants to have the muscle memory of years of practice even if they don't plan to start learning piano for a year or two.

Instructor Biography

Micah Blake, Owner of Speaking Music, Piano teacher, and Music Consultant

About the Owner Micah Blake

I have been into music my whole life. I have my Masters Certificate in Music Theory and Harmony from Berklee and have been playing instruments for over fifteen years. I'm so glad that it's something I can now do full time and help other people explore music. I am always trying to get better at what I do and help others progress along his or her own path. It doesn't matter if you're 7 or 70, you can progress in what you love to do. Speaking Music is just another step to help you get there. Learning music is so much more than becoming the best, it's about developing yourself and getting a more balanced life emotionally and physically.
