As you progress through the sample lessons, you'll see why thousands of students have succeeded with my playing techniques after failing with traditional piano lessons.
This is the site where students come to when they've reached the point of almost giving up on piano, or simply don't have the time or energy to start from scratch with their busy schedules.
Let me just encourage you that if you try my sample video lessons for yourself, you'll discover the easiest, most enjoyable way of playing the piano on the planet!
First, let me tell you that I used to be one of those
typical 'by the book' piano teachers...
In 2003, I was asked to teach a 6-week chord style piano course for the continuing education department at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, New Jersey.
I was a firm believer that every student should learn how to read standard music notation. I also thought that every student should play scales, perform daily finger exercises and practice a minimum of 45 minutes to an hour each day.
I truly believed that this was what everyone had to do to learn how to play the piano at a high, competent level. I couldn't have been more wrong, but I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it for myself.
The chord style class that I taught was designed to get students playing complete songs by the end of the 6 weeks, which I thought, (at the time), was just flat out impossible. I was extremely skeptical that students would gain any benefit from the class, but I kept an open mind and agreed to teach the class.
Now I was already teaching the chord method to many of my private students, along with my play by ear techniques, and I had a great deal of confidence with those techniques, given 6 months or more - but I really believed that asking students to learn these techniques in 6 weeks was asking a bit much!
A Year's Worth Of Progress In 6 Weeks!
Well, let's just say I was amazed at the results of that first class. Most of the class did better than I ever imagined! (Of course,
there were 1 or 2 students who didn't invest much time into practicing).
By the end of the 6 weeks, the students were playing complete songs, with both hands, and most of them were absolute beginners just 6 weeks earlier.
If I hadn't taught the class for myself and evaluated the students at the beginning and end of the 6 weeks, I would have thought that most of the students had been playing a good year or more. The results were nothing short of miraculous.
I already knew how effective the chord piano techniques were with my private students, but now I knew that the method could be taught in an accelerated program and still produce the results that students with busy schedules were looking for.
After teaching Chord Style Piano for over a decade now, I have no reservations when I say...
I still offer my LIVE workshop at various venues throughout the South Jersey area and continue to be amazed. Chord Style Piano has forever changed my views on how to teach adults to play.
Even now, when the students in my workshops go home and play the piano for 10 to 15 minutes a day, the results are just as dramatic as that first class I taught back in 2003.
If I had to explain why my method is so effective in one or two sentences, I'd have to say the secret is found in all the little shortcuts that I offer...from my Instant Note Reading Method, to my technique on learning the names of the keys in less than an hour...to my chord structure lesson that will provide complete beginners with the ability to remember new chords within minutes.
I've taken out all the formality that you'd learn from a highly disciplined traditional piano teacher, and replaced it with quick, easy to use shortcuts that you'd learn from your best friend who's been playing for years!
How would you like to learn the same techniques that I
teach in my 6-week class, and more?
The straightforward nature of chord style piano makes it a perfect fit for online lessons.
I truly believe that online video and audio piano instruction is the next innovative step in learning how to play the piano, and you can do it in the comfort of your own home.
My online lessons are accessible any time, day or night, to anyone with an Internet connection. And as good as my 6-week class is, my online lessons offer a great deal more, including our new, updated PLAY PIANO BY EAR Audio Course.
In Less Than 6 Months Of Online Piano Lessons, One Of My Online Students Was Able To Serenade His New Bride At The Reception, Surprising Everyone!
"I learned the keyboard in less than 9 weeks, and surprised my wife with one of her favorite songs at our wedding! Thanks Guy!"
"I used this method to learn how to play the piano and completely surprised my wife and our guests at our wedding. Before these lessons I only went to a few piano lessons when I was really young. I never took piano seriously and never touched a piano in my adult life.
Then I took these lessons because I could study them online without my wife knowing, and in less than 6 months I learned to play several of her favorite Billy Joel songs, and since the wedding I even play some basic Jazz, and Holiday songs. Thanks again for the lessons!" - Gregory Alerte
Here's What Just A Few Of My Students Have To Say
About My 6-Week Chord Style Piano Class!
"You really can break some rules and learn to play the piano! I highly recommend Guy Faux's Chord Piano course. The approach really is incredibly easy and Guy's ability to simplify music theory equips you with the basics that make quickly learning piano both possible and fun! Once I started to see the patterns, it all started to make sense and fall into place. I totally enjoyed his course and feel I can now begin to share the gift of music with others." Sandy Welsh
"I heartily recommend this course to anyone who even thinks they want to learn piano, especially anyone who took traditional lessons and gave up because they were boring." Frank N. Hiejbel
"I learned that there is a set pattern for figuring out major chords, and from there it is easy to figure out minor chords, seventh chords, diminished chords -- all without having to flip through pages or chord charts or spending hours on memorization. I would definitely recommend the 6-Week Chord Style Piano Class to anyone who just wants to sit at a piano and play popular songs. The course is fun, easy and works!" Donna Marinelli
"All I wanted is to be able to play by favorites like Billy Joel and Norah Jones and now I can. Instead of being frustrated trying to learn scales and traditional techniques I now love to sit and just play. Thank you Guy!" Meghan Montague
"His techniques really work; you learn how to read music, play chords with the left hand, and play the melody with the right hand. I believe if you can type, then you can play the piano. I recommend Guy's piano class to anyone who is interested in learning to play popular music." Nauman Chughtai
Now you can be learning my time-tested, proven method...and you can do it in less than 6 months without having to take traditional piano lessons!
"I have played piano by
ear since I was 9 years old, however, I was only
able to play with my right hand. I never knew how
I have taken some piano classes on reading music
but that takes forever to perfect. So I decided to
take Guy's course. After the first week, I could play
songs with both hands. Guy has been a gift from
Heaven, I never thought I could play with both hands.
Guy makes chording simple and easy to learn. If you
are frustrated with trying to read music I recommend
you take his course. You will be playing beautiful
music in no time. Guy is an asset to his craft."
- Robin Fancher
"I have always wanted
to learn to play the
piano but didn't want
to take years of weekly
lessons before I could
play even a simple song.
After 6 weeks of Guy
Faux's course I am now
playing songs using both
hands. Guy makes learning
to play the piano
easy and fun."
