„It seems to me that you have the best serious beginner course on the net, and probably anywhere else too. I have never seen, or heard of a course that gives any useful attention to basic technique. Or any attention at all.“
– Cato Sæther

a) know the parts of the piano and how they work;

Is This Piano Course for You?
The online piano course is for beginners or those with limited classical piano experience. It is not a crash course, you will learn exactly like you would in a music school with an expert teacher. To take the pressure off and organise your learning, there will be 8 piano lessons revealed every month.
When you acquire a strong technique basis, the joy from playing your favorite pieces will be much greater, because your ability to play is better. To gain the skills perfectly you simply need to watch the videos and practice at least 20 minutes a day.
By the end of the free basics course you have acquired a nice variety of different piano skills and first steps in music theory. This does not mean, that you have to stop learning with me.
You explain in a very simple way so it is easy to learn, also you speak slowly, this is wonderful because it gives our brain time for things to sink in.

Continue Your Piano Studies
After the basics course there will be a possibility for stage two, where we will deepen and memorize thoroughly all the knowledge you have acquired. You will learn new interesting and famous classical piano pieces, polish your playing technique and abilities.
The concentration and quality level will be as high as in a good music school and the members area will continue with full support and feedback.
The following course lasts for 11 months and has 8 lessons a month. During the one year piano course you will memorize all essential information about piano playing and master the piano technique.
„Your piano technique and the lessons that presented those techniques are one of a kind. After many years, it’s only now that I could comfortably play with my pinky and ring fingers. This made me hopeful and got enthusiastic again to play the piano.
All the piano teachers I have mentioned [in the full testimonial] pale in comparison when it comes to piano technique. The way your hand and fingers move are way above their level of expertise.“
– Edward Evangelista
