Is there a piano piece that is more well-known than the first movement of the Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven? Well, maybe. But, Moonlight Sonata is right up there at the top of the list.

Before I started my YouTube channel, I had never heard of Yiruma. I know, I know. But I promise, I actually don’t live under a rock. Anyway, I have gotten so many requests for his music, more than for any other artist. So, I’m starting a series of tutorials for his pieces, and here is the first one, River Flows In You.

I’ve received so many questions from my viewers about the basics of reading music and playing the piano that I decided to put together a course that allows everyone to learn all the basics at their own pace.
Piano lessons with a teacher are great, but if you don’t have the time or finances to invest in searching for just the right teacher, or you’re unsure about whether or not you can fit weekly lessons into your life, then this online course may be just the thing you’ve been waiting for!
I give you all the basics in lessons that are less than 10 minutes long, so you don’t need to carve out a large chunk of time. If you need to repeat lessons, you can! If you want to speed ahead, you can! Once you purchase the course, you own it, so there’s no time limit and no schedule to stick to.
You can watch a couple of lessons for free and use coupon code THEPIANOKEYS for a huge savings off the list price of the course!
Let me know if you have any questions!

This is the first in a series of posts I’ll be doing about practicing.
The questions I’m most commonly asked are about practicing. How often should I practice? How long should I practice? When will I be good enough to not have to practice anymore? Continue reading “How Much Should I Practice?” »
