We’re doing things a little bit differently today.
This post is all about taking you INSIDE the Pianote membership so you can see exactly what’s in store, and why so many people have decided to learn with Pianote.
But a warning! There A LOT of stuff in there, so we are only going to be able to skim the surface today. But I hope it will be enough to give you an idea of what’s in store if you’re interested in joining me!
This is the backbone of Pianote! It is our curriculum, designed by professional teachers (including me) and structured to take someone from never having touched the keys before to being able to play songs, read music and even improvise and solo over some jazz music!
Within the Foundations Learning Path, there are 10 levels, and each level has 10 lessons. So there are 100 lessons in total that are all laid out step-by-step so you NEVER have to go looking for that next lesson. It’s always there for you. Plus there is progress tracking so you can always pick up where you left off.
But that’s not even the best part…
So you can IMMEDIATELY practice what you’ve learned along with a teacher. This is awesome because often it can be hard to know WHAT to practice.
With Pianote you’ll always know what you should be practicing and you’ll know when you’re good enough to move on to the next lesson. That helps you avoid frustration by either staying at one level too long or moving ahead too soon.
The Foundations Learning Path will make you a complete piano player. But we all know why you want to learn the piano…
To play songs!!
This is where we store our entire database of song tutorials (and we are always adding more).
You may have watched a few tutorials on this Blog, but the lessons inside the Membership are at a whole other level.
For starters, you just GET a lot more. Each song comes with a lead sheet, a FULL score (treble and bass), plus a backing track with a full band or just the piano.
There are also practice-along assignments for EACH part of the song so you can master it quickly (just like in the Foundations lessons).
Plus, the tutorials themselves are much more detailed, going into every section of the song and providing separate tutorials for an accompaniment version and an instrumental version.
And the best part is that ALL the music is included for FREE. You’ll never have to pay for songs or transcriptions.
In my opinion, this alone makes a Pianote membership worth it. Because as a member, you get access to EVERY one of our digital training packs. These are separate packs that we sell, like500 Songs in 5 Days ($99), Faster Fingers ($99), and Sight-Reading Made Simple ($19).
But they’re included for free as part of a membership.
On top of that, we have a lot of courses that are specific to different skills and genres of music. Love Gospel? Boogie Woogie? How about Jazz? We have entire courses on all of them (plus more!).
I can’t overstate how much I LOVE our Student Focus section. This is what sets Pianote apart from other online learning platforms, and it’s what will make the most difference in your playing and your success.
EVERY week either I or Sam host a LIVE Q&A lesson where you can ask us anything at all about music, the piano, lessons, etc.
This is like having access to your own private teacher and being part of a lesson. But if you can’t make the weekly live, that’s ok. We record and put every single live lesson up on the website so you can watch it whenever you can.
And now the student focus. As a Pianote member, you can send in little video clips of yourself practicing and playing the piano, and I will watch them and provide feedback in a separate live lesson. Again, this sets us apart from any other online piano school in my opinion.
You can get PERSONAL piano tips and suggestions from me. And just like the Q&A lessons, we also record and post these so you can watch them later. It also helps to watch other students to see how they are progressing and it’s a great way to support and encourage each other.
I know I’m biased. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think this was the absolute BEST way to learn the piano online.
The simple truth is this. Traditional lessons are expensive. And they’re not always convenient. With Pianote you get the care and attention of traditional lessons with the bonus of convenience, and all for a tiny fraction of the cost.
If you’ve ever had questions about Pianote I hope this tour has helped answer some, and if you have any more I’d love to hear from you!
