I Invite You to Join the Follow-Up Course
This is an important step because it is not a crash course, but more like going to a real music school and having a private piano teacher.
Changes and decisions often require energy to be done. And the moment is now. If you have gone this far and you feel deep inside that you love the piano and wish to learn it thoroughly then just do it. Later you will be hesitative and the energy surge will fade.
I am sure that you might have questions about the course and its technical side. For example:
Why Should I Choose Jaak Sikk’s Online Piano Course?
There are so many online piano lessons and courses offered on the Internet. You are probably struggling to make the right decision for you.
I think that it will help you to make a choice when I speak about my principles in teaching the piano.
1) One of the trends of today is to get everything as fast as possible. This course differs from that attitude and follows step-by-step thorough method, that has stood the test of time and honours worthy and valuable teaching traditions combined with the newest piano and methodology related discoveries.
I believe that an instrument can not be learned fast. You can quickly learn the notes and chords etc., but to really master and acquire something it takes time. There are so many detailed habits combined with knowledge and motion. You can enjoy playing the piano much more, when you build a meaningful and deep relationship with the piano over a longer period of time.
2) The two lessons per week pace keeps up the excitement and a good learning rhythm – two exciting lessons with new secrets and tasks will be revealed every week. This will make it easy to learn systematically and in an organized way.
3) You are not alone in your learning process. I am offering free personalised support by email, video sharing via YouTube or Skype and on discussion boards – ensuring every problem is quickly resolved for you
I strongly suggest you to use the possibility to post your recordings of the pieces that you learn during the course (and also independently) to get personal tips and feedback.
4) I only teach classical pieces in the follow-up course.
So if you share my opinions and are interested in really learning the piano step by step, then this is the right place for you.
Is It Possible That the Follow-Up Course Is Too Fast-Paced for Me?
If you are commited to learning the piano and make time for practicing, then it is definitely not too fast-paced or intense.
On the other hand, if you already know, that you do not have sufficient time for the course, you can choose to work at your own pace. It is possible, because I offer different payment and subscription plans depending on your learning possibilities.
What Happens If I Want to Take a Break from Learning?
The course lasts for eleven months, but that does not mean you have to take the whole course in one session. Depending on your payment plan you can always take a break for as long as you need, be it 1 month / 2 months / half a year.
The system is flexible and you can advance to the next month whenever you want. Then when you decide, that it is the right time to start learning again, you can continue exactly from the point you left off.
And also all the lessons you have already paid for are available to you forever.
What If I Want to Stop Learning the Piano Completely?
If you decide halfway through the follow-up course that learning the piano is not for you and want to opt-out, then you can just stop learning. There are no contracts.
What If I Want to Start the Follow-Up Course At a Later Time?
When you have completed the free basics course, you can start the follow-up course whenever you want. Your account will never expire and you can continue your studies when it best suits you.
What If I Did Not Complete the Free Basics Course?
If you did not have time to complete the free basics course in one month and want to catch up before you start the follow-up course, you can always take the free basics course again.
How Much Is the Follow-Up Course Going to Cost?
The regular monthly price is $38 and you can pay with PayPal, Stripe or credit cards. Discounts apply depending on your payment plan. You will receive 8 piano lessons a month for 11 months (88 lessons altogether). The payment plan is not just the way you choose how you pay. It is actually more important, because it influences strongly the learning process. Also, each person is different and therefore the style how to learn might need a different approach.
I am also offering a 30-day 100% money back guarantee. No questions asked.
