It's a very useful course for those who doesn't have strong music background. I learned piano 20 years ago and thought it would take me 3 months to practise a pop song but this course teaches me the skills and techniques that enable me to pick it up fairly easily. And most importantly, my interest in piano comes back, I am now feeling like I would love to play a song (and enjoy) rather than "forced" to play one and take exams.
I love piano but music notes are all Greek to me. My son introduced me the pianohk website and the youtube demos which aroused my interest in learning how to play piano. I attended 4 lessons only, started playing the songs though not very smoothly and kept practising it every one or two nights. The better I play, the happier I am. I tried not to be aggressive as what Derek had advised the class, just practised two sentences at a time and added on bit by bit.
Miraculously, I could play the whole song within a month. Self entertainment is my goal for this course. The course did help me and inspired me to learn by myself. A four-lesson course is rather short for a layman but it is an important key for self-learner to realize their dreams and achieve contentment. I understand that Rome was not built in a day. Therefore, I bought all the courses and started the journey on my own. Hope that some day I may enroll other courses to enhance my skills. Thank you.
I must admit that I was extremely skeptical about your method when I first got the video course.
I'm finally convinced that your technique is an excellent way to learn to play piano by ear. Much better then any of the methods I've tried so far. I've been practicing the Raymond Lam song, which I never thought I'd even come close to learning to play, with amazing results.
I am an adult learner. It's so lucky to find "POPPIANO". I have no time to join the course or seminar either. That's why I bought seminar and group video courses.
You know, it's amazing and splendid! Following the course, even first time & first 30 minutes, you can achieve the skill to playing chord with melody. It is really clear and easy to understand even A STARTER!!!
I gained more from this video course than from my one-year tuition at a big piano company. If you are a shift worker or busy guy, try to find the magic in the video course, You must have a great improvement shortly. Thanks for reading my sharing here, bye.
