Learn your favorite pieces

From Beethoven to the Beatles and beyond. You’ll learn pieces that match your current level, so you progress quicker and without frustration. The custom player even lets you loop a tricky section!

Improve your technique

My piano course teaches you how to improve your speed, dexterity and endurance at the piano with many of my favorite exercises. The scales and arpeggios every pianist should learn are taught as well.

Learn music theory

Understand the notes you’re playing by learning about key signatures, intervals, chords, the circle of fifths, and much much more. Includes interactive quizzes so you can check your progress.

Whether you're an absolute beginner or already an experienced pianist, you'll find materials tailored to your skill level.

Each level 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.

Testimonials

I've tried other online piano courses, but this is the only one that really goes beyond the notes and discusses things like interpretation and technique.

I love the way the pieces and exercises are graded to perfectly match my level. And so much more professional than Flowkey or Skoove.
