Piano Tutorial Interface

Whilst searching for piano tutorials to publish on the blog I came across the OnlinePianist.com

This is a great resource for pianists of all levels who want to learn how to play actual songs and pieces of music that aren’t just in the public domain.
There is an extensive library of songs in many styles with literally hundreds of examples.
The songs are not exactly tutorials but if you go to the site you will see the innovative method they have used to offer their tutorials.

There is a keyboard onscreen which shows you the notes of the song as they are being played. At first glance it appears to be a video but actually it is more like an interface. The good thing is that you are able to adjust the speed of the playback and start and stop it.  in actionThis way you can watch and copy in slow motion as you learn. Another really useful feature of the interface is that you can choose to split the performance up and view either the left hand on its own, the right hand or both hands together.

The basic interface is free and you get access to the hundreds of songs and pieces of music available however after a couple of plays you need to sign up via Facebook to retain access. There is a piad version as well that offers some advanced features.

New Piano Course looks VERY Promising

I have found a new piano learning course which at first glance seems to be very promising indeed.

The course is called Learn Piano in 30 Days and stands out from the other best selling piano courses in quite a few ways which I will go into below.

Scan with your mobile - Learn piano in 30 days QR codeThe best thing of all is that the whole course can be tried out for just $1. The 14 day $1 trial allows you to check out all aspects of this very complete course so you can decide whether to continue and pay the  the very reasonable $27 monthly fee.

The course offers tuition from the most basic level for absolute beginners to a fairly high intermediate level.

One of the best features of this course is that they have a large selection of song tutorials in video format so you can watch and play along whilst you learn some of the most in demand popular and modern songs available. If there is one thing I have learned from offering help on learning the piano it is that most people want to learn how to play real songs and this course certainly has this covered.

The inclusion of thousands of pieces of sheet music alone is worth the cost of the course. As you may have discovered, sheet music can be very expensive and to find free sheet music is a nightmare with hundreds of shady rip off sites all getting you to jump through hoops of signing up for memberships only to not deliver in the end.

Here is a list of some of the song tutorials that they have available.

Song Tutorials

There is a forum manned by a team of real piano teachers so you can keep in touch and get any questions or doubts answered by the professionals and there is also an online help system.

Just going by the amount of material that is available with this course I would go as far as to say that the course would be attractive to even the most experienced piano player just for the sheer amount of tutorials and sheet music available without even going into the course details.

I plan to do a video review of this product as soon as possible… keep an eye out for it.

If anyone would like to share their opinions of this course I would be very interested to hear about it. Please leave a comment in the comments section below…  Thanks

Extensive collection of piano tutorials

Here is a great piano site I found that has a really comprehensive collection of piano tutorials.

I was astounded when I took a deeper look into the collection they have up here. There are a staggering 300 tutorials showing you how to play many of the classic piano based songs from John Lennon’s Imagine to Bruce Hornsby’s that’s just the way that it is.

In fact any song you can imagine is probably here in this collection of tutorials.

The tutorials don’t appear to be in any logical order which is a shame and it makes finding a song more of a pot luck event. There are some really advanced pieces and some really simple ones and there is no distinction as to playing level in the list.

All of this is however totally excusable as this has to be THE most comprehensive list of piano tutorials available at the moment.

I hope you get a chance to check it out and learn some of the all time classic piano pieces. The more you learn from others the more different styles you will be practicing. All of that will make it a lot easier to progress in your piano playing even though you might feel you are making little progress and simply copying other people’s piano parts.
