There’s more than 130 lectures. What are we going to do through all of those?

The short way of explaining it is: We will learn some basic informations, use it to play new pop songs and then use all of this to play by ear. After playing by ear we are going to make it sound fancier by playing in our full hands on literally all the piano keyboard.

It’s divided into 14 days:

I will go slowly in my explanation, leaving you with the time to pause the video and practice while I am playing. The songs are: Can’t help Falling in love – Elvis Presley and Easy on me – Adele

DAY 7: PLAY BY EAR

Here, and fortunately, I will have the chance to share with you the ways that I found the most effective to play by ear. And because I believe that we learn by doing, we will learn by discovering together how to play the song A Thousand Year – Christina Perri and A Sky Full Of Stars – Coldplay.

But it’s not all theory: We will learn a song called ABCDEFU – GAYLE, and trending song by the time I am writing this. My goal is to make you independent as much as possible, so in the future you don’t have to refer to tutorial videos on how to sound like a pro. I placed everything you need to know here, to make the songs that you play sound magic. You will be amazed by how much you can do with the knowledge we gained!

DAY 11: Improvisation

Here, we are not going to do in depth into improvisation, since we already are able to transform songs from boring to exciting. We learned how to play melody and chords in the right hand at the same time, and how to play octaves with your left hand all over the piano. But this section, is going to be dedicated on how to play a melody you like it. So it’s more like composition or improvise your composition. It’s a fun section if you want to level up in piano.
