Playing the piano doesn't need to be complicated. All you need is to learn the building blocks.
Get ready to learn the basic building blocks of all music: chords.
Experienced instructor Nathan Lawrence guides you step by step through the process of learning to play piano by chord. Many online piano methods teach you what you need to know, but in an impersonal way. You might be able to see the piano and what to play, but there’s no human being there to make it feel like you’re learning in a personal lesson setting. That’s why this course has a fundamentally different approach. Every lesson is taught with a simultaneous view of both your teacher and the keyboard, as if you’re looking in a mirror.
Piano Building Blocks uses one-of-a-kind, shape-based approach to chord learning. All 24 major and minor chords are taught in intuitive groups by hand position shape, with memorable descriptions like “mountain” or “valley” to help you remember how to place your hand.

"I loved the course. You are a great teacher and I found your shape-based way of teaching chords to be really helpful to me. I now understand how chords are constructed which is amazing as I never thought I would learn it so easily. This will help me with both my piano playing and guitar playing. I have started writing songs so this knowledge will help me to bring more variation into my compositions. Your course was brilliantly done. Thank you so very much for doing it." - Amanda
