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.



 Piano Skills Foundation:
Build Strong Foundation of Piano-playing Skills

The Piano Skills Foundation is a series of video piano lessons. This series of lessons is designed to help you build your piano skills from a beginner level all the way up to advanced levels.  Step by step, the lessons will help you develop your keyboard awareness, your piano fingering, your technique, your rhythm, your ear, and your overall musical ability.  You will learn these things through practicing tunes, scales and chords, music reading, and learning and memorizing piano pieces.

A gradual progression of learning will take you through 3 beginner levels, 3 intermediate levels, and 3 advanced levels.  Once all 9 levels become available, any piano player of any variety of experience should be able to "plug in" to the appropriate level for their situation.

At this moment (as of November, 2016), only the Beginner Levels are available. 

Each level consists of 12 Lessons.  In order to work through the lessons you need two things: the videos and the accompanying materials.  You will find links to the videos of the lessons below.  The accompanying materials are in the form of an ebook for each level (12 lessons per ebook).  The links for purchasing these ebooks can also be found below.


The Cost Of Lessons/Support This Website:

The average cost of taking piano lessons with a private teacher around the country (USA) stands at about $60 per hour.  Most teachers offer a 30-minute weekly lesson for a monthly tuition price of $120 (4 lessons).  Thus, tuition for 12 lessons would cost $360.  Though video lessons do not offer the immediate feedback of a personal private teacher, they can still offer the motivated do-it-yourselfer a very effective way to learn and develop piano skills.  Plus, these videos cover as much ground in each lesson as can be covered in private lessons of 45 to 60 minutes.

Your cost to enjoy these video/ebook lessons is a much more affordable (hopefully), yet still helpful for supporting this website:

 $25 per level (12 lessons) 

(Now includes a bonus: free download of ebook "Piano Player... You")

Here is a link to the ebook for Beginner Level 1 (12 Lessons) for $25.

Here is a link to the ebook for Beginner Level 2 (12 Lessons) for $25.

Here is a link to the ebook for Beginner Level 3 (12 Lessons) for $25.

...however, I do not want anyone to not learn to play for lack of money.  So...
