3 Tricks To Learning Chord Piano
In Less Than A Year!
Stop Struggling With Traditional Sheet Music...
The Common Struggle
Being a piano teacher for over 22 years now, I know what students tend to struggle with, and I know the techniques that will help students overcome these struggles.
In 22 years I've only had a handful of adult students stick with piano lessons. Most quit in the first year. Others hang on a little longer, but over 80% of adult students finally throw in the towel within 2 years of starting lessons.
The problem is standard sheet music. Learning to read piano sheet music takes most students a good 4 to 6 years.
Utilizing my 3 tricks to learning chord piano in less than a year, solves the major problem facing busy adults.
Trick #1: Simplifying Sheet Music
If you've watched my 5 Sample Lessons, then you already know the techniques that have brought so much success to my adult students.
If you really want to learn how to play the piano, then I suggest that you work through the 5 videos. Even if you're a complete beginner, the melody and chords are easy enough for anyone to pick up the basics.
Don't worry if it doesn't sound perfect. You're 6 to 10 months away from really perfecting the chord method.
Trick #2: Reducing Sheet Music
Once you have a dozen or so chords under your belt, and understand the basics of chord piano, you can then begin to create fuller, more professional sounding piano arrangements, which I covered in video's 4 and 5 of my sample lessons.
You may remember that I supplied Advanced EZ Read Sheet Music so you could see exactly what I was playing with my left hand, but to be honest, I really didn't need to look at it, and in a year from now, neither will you.
I created the advanced piano arrangements from the beginner sheet music that you downloaded from Video Lesson #1. This is the sheet music that showed the right-hand melody and the chord symbols above the melody notes.
Once you understand the chord method, you'll join a select group of piano players that are only limited by their imagination.
Trick #3: Eliminating Sheet Music
And the promised land for any musician is when they can play without any sheet music at all, which is why I tell my students not to be all that concerned with the EZ Read Sheet Music.
I've had a number of my adult students worry what people might think if they see them using this simplified sheet music. I have to remind them that once they finish my play by ear course, they won't be using any sheet music.
Even if you can only play 2 chords, which is all you need to start my Play Piano By Ear Audio Super Course, then that's enough to start the process of eliminating sheet music altogether.
As your ear grows, you'll progress to 3-chord songs. At this point, learning the melody is very easy, but adding just one extra chord can really complicate the process.
I've had students who could barely hear the chord change to "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" in week 1, and then 16 weeks later they'd be moving on to 4-chord and multiple-chord songs.
I've taught these techniques in colleges, online and to my private students - and if they follow my organized method and let their ear grow and its own pace - the results are absolutely amazing!
Adults don't have to join the 80% of students who quit piano in the first 18 to 24 months of lessons.
By simplifying, reducing, and then eliminating sheet music altogether, the dream of playing the piano at a high level is possible, and it doesn't have to take you years of expensive, private lessons to do so.
I'll send you Sample "Play By Ear" Lessons 1 & 2 in a few days, and then a few days later I'll send you Sample Lessons 3 & 4.
I'll even send you my complete Master Class Lesson 17 so you can see how much your ear will grow and what you'll be playing by ear within the next year. Enjoy!
