Many piano students do not know how to practice at the piano. They sit at the piano, and they are bored to tears trying to do drilling exercises. Is this your situation? Months and years go by, their piano playing does not improve. The reason is that they do NOT know how to practice at the piano in a worthwhile and effective manner.

Do you want to take your piano playing to a higher level?

Learn how to practice at the piano in a FUN way!

Here's the Secret: The Circle of 5ths is a musical instrument that teaches us a lot about chords and chord progressions in songs. In this course, I am going to show you a 'magical method' of using the Circle of 5ths to play a song in ALL 12 Keys EFFORTLESSLY in only 12 days. Yes, only 12 days!

For many people, to try to play in 3 or 4 keys is a big task already. After this course, you are going to find out my magic method of using the Circle of 5ths to help you master 12 Keys EFFORTLESSLY in 12 days. Why Effortlessly? Because you will discover for yourself that you only need to learn ONE NEW Chord a day in each of the 12 days to play a song in all 12 keys.

Isn't this fantastic? The Method is already embedded inside the Circle and I am going to reveal to you how you are going to practice a song in all 12 Keys in only 12 days.

In traditional music learning, we need 3 years to master all 12 keys. Here in this non-traditional method of using the Circle of 5ths, it will just take you 12 DAYS. I've seen this happening quickly to my students after taking this course, and it will happen to you too.

You need to embrace this method to shorten your practice time and to enjoy your time at the piano!

And I will even show you 5 techniques to play a song beautifully in all these 12 Keys:

1. Open 10th Technique

2. Melody in 3rds, 6ths, Octaves

3. Chord Inversions

4. Raindrop Fillers

6. Open 10th Ending.

Enroll into the course and have fun,

Instructor Biography

Rosa Suen, Piano Teacher, Church Pianist, Learn Piano With Rosa

Rosa is the Pastor and Church Pianist for a local community church in Hong Kong for over 30 years. She graduated from University of British Columbia and received her teaching certificate specializing in Chemistry and teaching English as a second language. She taught public schools in Canada for a couple of years and then went on to receive her Master's degree in Christian Theological Ministry at Ontario Theological Seminary in Toronto. She started full time ministry with her husband in 1989 and received intensive Pastoral Counselling and Discipleship Training at Christian Disciples Church. They were ordained to become church ministers as Pastors in 1996 in a local church in Tsuen Wan and have been ministering to this same congregation for almost 20 years now.

Over the years, she has gone on church missions to Mongolia, Sydney, Nepal, India and expedition trips to the Holy Lands: Israel, Greece and Turkey. Wherever she went, she found herself taking up the music ministry and became the church pianist for that church.

Many people at church have asked her to teach them to play piano. As a result of her passion in playing piano, she started developing piano courses initially for church pianists online since 2008. The piano courses are very unique because she was finally willing to share her Unique Piano Method: Color Chord Improvisation Method known as CCI. The CCI method works for all types of music: Gospel, Pop and Standards.

This Piano Method is easy, fun and creative that you learn to play piano not only from music score sheets, but to play chords from fake books and eventually to play by ear. Students all over the world have requested for courses to teach them play standards and popular songs. As a result she developed 3 Great Reharmonization Method courses for them to play from fake books and play by ear. The Dreamy Piano Techniques courses, especially the one on Autumn Leaves is her students favorite. She has a piano website at Learn Piano With Rosa where she continues to offer new courses to her students. She also holds piano workshops for her local students and train church pianists.

With her education and expertise in teaching, her students love her piano courses and found her piano lessons extremely easy and fun to play piano. They are highly motivated to play piano and playing piano had never been more fun and satisfying for them. You can read their testimonies on her website.

She is now an instructor at Udemy. Come and join her hundreds of students to play piano in a fun and creative way.
