Description

Do You Want To Play Properly, Quickly And Beautifully?             

Do You Want To Get Compliments On Your Piano Playing?

This course focuses seriously on two often neglected topics: piano technique and improvisation. Most piano and other keyboard players don't even know how much they are lacking in these two key areas. When you have a solid technical base, everything becomes easier. And improvisation is an essential skill for any serious musician. 

The course is designed to be modular and flexible, so that you can quickly learn no matter what your initial level is. The only thing you have to do to guarantee yourself success on the piano beyond what you previously thought possible is to put in the time, as described in the course introduction.

Who is the target audience?
  • Full-time musicians, producers etc.
  • Singers who wish to learn how to accompany themselves
  • Full or part-time music students
  • People who already play one or more instruments and are looking to add keyboard skills.
  • Piano and other keyboard players who want to improve quickly.
