In this piano course I will take you from a complete novice, someone who has never played the piano before, to an intermediate piano player. How is that possible? Whether you have been playing piano for 1 month or 1 year, or maybe have not even started yet, it's all about 2 things: Practice your piano skills, and learn about music and piano theory. You see if you do not know what yo play on your piano, you cannot practice it either. On the other hand you might know exactly what to play, but if your hands to work along, you will stuck either way. This course is not just for beginner piano players, instead, it can also be used by people who play instruments that are different, think about guitar players, saxophone players or even drummers. Drummers? Yes even people who play the drums benefit from knowing basic musical principals so they understand what it is, the other musicians are playing. So, instead of paying insane amounts for piano classes, a piano teacher or music school, let's start here, so you can learn to play the piano, all by yourself, from the comfort of your own home.

There’s piano lessons for beginners, and though there are no specific piano lessons for kids, they can still use the lessons to learn how to play their favourite songs, like for instance this lesson!

You shouldn’t consider the lessons to be piano for dummies, instead think of them as a way Zelda to teach yourself piano. This is the main reason Back To You I started PGN Piano. I found myself in a place where I wanted to learn piano online, and I simply couldn’t find any good lessons for specific songs. After learning some songs myself, I decided it was Back To You to spread my knowledge, and gave it a go. My first piano lesson ever has now reached nearly 1.000.000 views, and is still being watched many times each day.

Keep Playing!
