Learning Material for Teens and Adults with Zero Background in Music

This introductory course teaches you how to play the piano, and gives you the necessary fundamental piano-playing skills. It begins with the basics of the piano, including proper keystroke and posture, fingering techniques, and how to read notes. In addition to employing a clear curriculum that makes you familiar with the keyboard one hand at a time, you will also experience playing simply arranged songs with both hands from an early stage. And even the simple exercises can be played with beautiful accompaniment data.

Finger Exercises Sample

By the combination of one-handed practice with two-handed practice, you can develop basic skills through introductory arrangements of well-known songs. With the helpful exercises and repertoire, you’ll soon be able to play with both hands.

Repertoire Sample

By the end of the curriculum, you'll be able to face the challenge of learning the famous Edward Elgar composition, “Pomp and Circumstance.”
