Achieve musical freedom with the

Your time is precious. And it matters.

If you’ve tried learning the piano before, you’ll know the frustrations. How you put in the work, and did everything right, but you didn’t get the results you expected. So...

What went wrong?

Most piano courses teach you one thing at a time, and one thing only. And then you have to practice that one thing over and over again.

But that’s not the best way to learn. That’s like going to the gym and working out only your legs for a month, then moving on to your back, then your arms…

It won’t give you the results you want.

The Pianote Method is different. It has been designed with YOU, the student, in mind. That means you’ll learn and develop the core skills that every piano player needs. And you’ll start from day one. And because you’re using these skills all the time…

They get stronger, and you get better, faster.

So you can play the songs you want to play. And you will, because EVERY level of the Method includes REAL song tutorials.

You won’t be practicing boring technical exercises for months before you can play the songs you want (and the songs people want to hear). You’ll be playing them from the very beginning.

And that’s not all…

All the songs in our huge library have been matched to a level in the Pianote Method. So you can quickly and easily pick songs that you CAN play, no matter what level you’re at.

The end result is more fun. Less frustration...

And a better use of your valuable time.

Your clear path, frustration-free
guide to playing the piano.

"You … make piano playing tons
of fun. The way it should be!"

I like that when I have questions there is always someone there to answer them. And if I can’t find an answer right away there is usually a video you guys have that I can find the answer, or sometimes I’ll find it on the forum.

In a nutshell... you all make piano playing tons of fun. The way it should be!

"It’s no longer
difficult to practice."

I took piano lessons 55 years ago. I wanted to be able to play pop music but my instructor told me if I learned classical I could play anything. I got frustrated and stopped.

With Pianote, it’s no longer difficult to practice. I can play whenever I want and I have a teacher on demand. One of my best decisions ever!

Lynda A. Hypnar
Michigan, USA

"I took private lessons
for over a year, but…"

I work many hours and I’m a mom of a teenager and a 5-year-old. I took private lessons for over a year, but it was hard for me to continue because of my busy schedule.

Pianote’s lessons are laid out so well, mimicking private lessons but allowing you to learn at your own pace. I’m super happy and pleased with my decision to join Pianote!

Erika Espinosa
Washington, USA

"I tried another
online site…"

I tried another online site and took a few private lessons. The site wasn’t bad, but it was impersonal, while I found the private lessons to be serious, dull, and expensive.

I watched some Pianote lessons on YouTube. I decided to join because of Lisa’s bubbly and enthusiastic personality.

Mike Gibson
Redcar, United Kingdom

"I love the flexibility to
practice at my own pace"

I got a piano last year and signed up for two app type tutorials for piano, but they didn’t gel with me. I watched YouTube for a year, selecting various song tutorials to learn by rote. Then I saw Pianote.

Lisa’s infectious enthusiasm had me hooked. And I love the flexibility to practice at my own pace using the online site or the books (which are fabulous).

Roberta Huby
Clifton, United Kingdom

"I’m learning to read sheet
music quicker than I ever did…"

I’ve taken piano lessons in the past, but not recently. I thought I’d give Pianote a try, and I’m glad I decided to.

I’m learning to read sheet music quicker than I ever did while taking private piano lessons.

Lynda Burton
Wyoming, USA

"I know other sites
have got to be jealous."

I want good instruction that I can learn at my own pace, and I want to have a say as to what my learning journey should look like.

I love the variety of approaches to learning the keyboard, the structured lessons, the forums for students and teachers and all the song tutorials. I know other sites have got to be jealous. I love everything about Pianote.

Dennis Earle
Maryland, USA

"I’m 66 years old
and I’m having a ball!"

I first wanted to play the piano as a child. I also wanted to learn ballet. But we couldn’t afford both so I said I would learn the piano sometime later in life. Well, I’m 66 years old now and I’m having a ball!

Anyone should try this and it is never too late to learn!

Janet Ketchen
Victoria, Canada

"I was nervous about paying
for online lessons, but..."

I was nervous about paying for online lessons, but now that I’m a member I’m comfortable with my decision -- I’m learning quickly, the teachers are very clear in the explanations and demonstrate at a good pace.

It’s a great website!

Kurt Roth
New York, USA

"I get instant responses
to my questions."

Despite not having too much talent for the piano, I learned a lot during the first year on Pianote. And what’s the most important to me is that I still love every minute of playing.

It is the perfect way to learn if you need to fit piano lessons into your busy schedule. I get instant responses to my questions, both online and offline. I’m so happy to be making progress!

Antal Venczel
Budapest, Hungary

"Learning the piano is easier
than I thought it would be."

Life is busy and it’s tough to predict when you will have time to practice and learn, but learning the piano is easier than I thought it would be.

I love that I can learn on my own schedule whenever I have an opportunity. It feels modern and progressive and it can work for anyone.

Nico Human
New Westminster, Canada

"I was looking for
a piano tutor."

I live in the country away from any major cities, so I was looking for a piano tutor. Your foundation course is just what I wanted with step-by-step lessons that fits every level of piano playing and you are so supportive when contacted.

Jeffrey Tubbenhauer
Murray Bridge, Australia

"Inspiring! Encouraging!
I’m addicted to Pianote!"

This is the equivalent to a music school where you can learn music no matter where you are in the world. And the best thing is that you are not limited to just practicing - there is so much more you will learn and be able to apply in your piano journey!

I honestly love everything about Pianote! It’s inspiring! Encouraging! I’m addicted to Pianote!

Maria Elena
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

"It’s the best place
to learn piano."

It’s the best place to learn piano. You get a new song breakdown every week and a step by step program with lots of piano teachers - and you get a fast reply when asking questions.

I’m happy I joined!

Brian Bilbey
Toronto, Canada

"I just wish Pianote would have
been available to me sooner."

I’m a little older than probably most piano students, but I’ve had this dream of playing the piano for a while. With Pianote, I can learn at my own pace and there’s tons of info at my disposal.

I just wish Pianote would have been available to me sooner. And considering the going price on piano lessons these days, Pianote is a good deal!

George Charron
Cornwall, Canada

"True online music
education professionals."

I am an academic musician, with a music and education degree from the University of Haifa and a teaching diploma. I know what good music education is when I see it - and I can’t stop saying my praises on Pianote.

I found a well-organized system, easy to use interface, high level of teaching and instructors, and fun experience which motivates me. True online music education professionals.

Dotan Ben Tur
Haifa, Israel

"The continuous new lessons makes learning dynamic and fresh."

Learning to play piano is a good investment, and Pianote is definitely cheaper than private tutoring. The community is really encouraging and supportive and the lessons are easy to understand and follow.

I love the combination of video tutorials with provided sheet music and how easy it is to progress through the lessons - and the continuous new lessons makes learning dynamic and fresh.

Christopher Foo
Eastwood, Australia

"Learning to play
piano is hard."

The lessons are the closest thing to real private lessons - technique, theory, and application. You always know what you can work on, one thing at a time, and get good at it before moving onto the next lesson.

And you’ll get all the lessons to work through at your own pace. Learning to play piano is hard. Piano lessons by Pianote made it easy.

Yuriy Frantsev
Samara, Russia

"I decided to leave
Pianote for a while..."

I loved the lessons but felt like they were becoming too advanced, so I decided to leave for a while to practice what I had learned without the expense of paying.

It was the most disappointing feeling when I realized I could no longer access my lessons! Pianote is fantastic and gave me absolutely everything I ever needed to learn to play piano.

Anne Russell
Canterbury, Great Britain

"It’s saving me
a ton of cash."

When I joined Pianote, it was some 20+ years since I last touched a keyboard. I was looking at getting my muscle memory back again… and the exercises that you offer are doing just that!

I found the site easy to navigate and I like the way it keeps track of my progress as I move through the lessons. But most importantly, it’s saving me a ton of cash.

Mike Ackland
Basingstoke, England

"I’ve used other
piano lesson websites..."

I’ve used other piano lesson websites, but the interfaces are too complicated and there was always issues with different apps. I wasted so much time troubleshooting rather than practicing.

Pianote gives me nice step by step lessons in progression and a sense of satisfaction. Lisa is so nice to watch and there are always PDFs that go with each lesson.

Steve Rafferty
St. Albans, United Kingdom

"It’s like sitting down with a friend who’s teaching me how to play ..."

I’d been self-taught but hit a wall and wasn’t progressing anymore, so I decided to try Pianote.

It’s like sitting down with a friend who’s teaching me how to play while explaining the logic behind what they’re doing. The lessons are well thought out and I can do this all on my own schedule.

Paul Bucci
Duxbury, Massachusetts USA
