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.

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.
