Quick, what’s the number one thing keeping people from learning to play the piano? If you said not enough time, you’re right. We never seem to have enough hours in the day to do what we want to do.
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!

Well, an etude is an exercise designed to work on a specific skill. Chopin, as well as other genius composers, took the idea of “exercising” at the piano to the next level, composing masterpieces that have become favorites of concert repertoire.
