Whether you're an absolute beginner or already an experienced pianist, you'll find materials tailored to your skill level.
Each module is divided into three parts: technical exercises to improve your coordination and facility, theory exercises to improve your note reading and understanding of the music, and repertoire selections appropriate to your current abilities.

Hone Your Skills
Piano is much more than just finding the notes–it’s about feeling, expression, and interpretation. If you only learn from computer-generated files or automated apps, you’ll sound like a computer instead of an artist. At PPA, you’ll not only hear each piece performed by a world-class professional pianist, but you’ll also get countless tips on phrasing, articulation, dynamics, pedal, and timing- for every piece!
Each instructional video is accompanied by a downloadable PDF file. No more scouring the web for a great piano arrangement, and no more wondering if a piece is the right level for you.
