The purpose of this website: helping you learn to play the piano.  Building a strong foundation of piano-playing skills will lead to a lifetime of piano-playing joy.


Easy Piano Lessons

At the start, your easy piano lessons should consist mainly of getting your hands on the keys and beginning the process of building your keyboard awareness and finger awareness.  The idea that piano playing is easy is absurd. But that it can be accomplished through a long series of easy steps over an extended period of time is absolutely true.  If you start now, with these simple lessons, and then stick with it for many years, you will someday be able to play extremely difficult music as if it were easy.

So start here with a few "easy" piano lessons, and then hang in there with it for the next several years.  Along the way, you will add more and more complexity as your skills grow and as your piano playing foundation becomes more solid.  Never go faster than your development will allow.  Be patient and take it one step at a time.  You will start "easy", but you will achieve much more over time.

Right away, you can watch the videos below and get started on two areas of piano study ("tunes" & "exercises") that will get you playing and start you on the path to getting to know your piano and your fingers.  First, though, watch this video on how to sit and hold your hands on the keys, as this is what every piano player could use before playing anything.

After the first exercise and the first tune, you will find a link to a continuing path in each area.  Ultimately, you will want to add music reading and music learning & memorizing to your growing foundation of piano-playing skills. Easy piano lessons can be found these areas as well.  Approach each area with patience and a good attitude, and you will be able to build confidence and competence at the piano.


To get a perspective...

For the best approach to your piano journey, you could use an overall view of it to show you where you are headed and how to get there.  I tried to put the piano journey into an easy-to-understand and easy-to-see perspective in the ebook "Piano Player... You".  You may want to consider reading this book as you begin your own piano odyssey.  It will help you understand what you need to do and how you need to do it.
