I help busy adults learn to play piano fast with my unorthodox, but proven method.

Teaching busy adults to play piano quickly has been my passion for over 30 years. Contrary to popular belief, learning to play the piano doesn't have to take years, or even months. It can be fast and fun to learn what YOU want to play. In fact, I can show you everything you need to know to play piano this way in about three hours. Let me prove it to you...

Change that "one day" to DAY ONE

Isn't it true? It doesn't matter what we do, we can't seem to have enough time to do everything. You have it on your bucket list. You want to learn to play piano. You promise yourself that "one day" you'll get around and make it a reality. Then life gets in the way. Then you get older. And your dream starts to drift away and out of your consciousness.

But deep down you know it's still there. The light might be flickering, but it's not out. You just need a little push and the "right" time to do it. Turn that one day into DAY ONE today. Now is the time and I'm going to help you get there, quick! One year from today, you'll be glad you did.

Why traditional piano lessons don't work for most of us

Let's face it... the traditional method was designed for a very small percentage of the population who wants to become concert pianists. The problem is most of us do not care to become concert pianists.

Besides, you'd have to start young if you ever wanted to become a concert pianist. The majority of us just want to play for fun and personal enjoyment.

That's why I refer to my method as "piano lessons for the rest of us." But even that is troubling for me because I don't really give piano lessons. I hold workshops and it only takes me three hours to teach you everything you need to learn to play piano this way. The good news is you don't have to practice hours upon hours a day to enjoy playing the piano.

Is it too late for me to learn to play piano?

A common misperception is that it's too late to start learning piano as an adult. Some adults may feel discouraged or self-conscious about their abilities compared to those who started playing at a younger age.

Cast your worries aside. Science has proved that the human brain can continue to make connections at any age. It might require some patience, but yes, you absolutely can learn to play piano.  

Don't let age prevent you from learning to play piano. It can be a fun experience, especially if you learn the Instant Piano way. You'll discover the joy of playing the piano in record time.

Is it hard to learn piano as an adult?

The short answer is yes, IF you choose to learn the traditional way, which means you'll have to immerse yourself in notation reading, theory and technique. And prepare to spend plenty of time reading notation.

On the other hand, if all you want to do is play chord-based accompaniment style piano, it is not hard to learn. You'll learn to read chords and basic treble clef notation reading.  

You'll discover that learning piano this way is not intimidating at all. In fact, many adults appreciate it. I'll show the shortest way to get there.

How long does it take for an average adult to learn piano?

If you try the traditional route, it might take you months, or even years to really enjoy playing the piano. Because it's a reading based approach, your ability to read notes dictates your ability to play. In other words, if you want to play well, you have to spend a lot of time reading notes.

If you choose the chord based approach, then it shouldn't take long. In fact, give me three hours and I'll show you all you need to know to play piano this way. 

 "Your technique is a god send and simple; just breaking it down is such a joy from the old reading one note and measure at a time." 

What makes instant piano different?

We specialize in teaching adults, not children.

9828415 png

We only cover pop music, as opposed to classical.

9828415 png

We believe one must learn through the aural process, not by reading information from a book.

9828415 png

We believe you are your own best teacher. Some of the best musicians we’ve ever heard are “self taught.” We show you how to teach yourself.

9828415 png

We respect your time. Instead of an indefinite series of weekly piano lessons, we concentrate the learning experience into short workshops, audio and online videos.

We realize our teaching philosophies fly in the face of many commonly accepted teaching techniques. We mean no disrespect to the countless piano teachers who teach in the classical tradition. We merely offer an alternative.

Pop Music vs Classical: Why Instant Piano is Changing the Game

At Instant Piano we teach pop music and only pop music. Yet ninety five percent of piano teachers as a whole teach only classical. In fact when students learn pop tunes from a traditional piano teacher, they most likely learn to play them in classical style.

The result is often disappointing. There’s a world of difference between the classical and pop methods of playing, and the two systems should not be used interchangeably.

Pop music differs from classical in many ways, starting with the learning process itself. For starters, pop piano players seldom depend on written music. Many pop musicians cannot even read music notation at all. So how is it pop music professionals learn to play?

Consider this. Music has always been an important part of the human culture. Thousands of years before musical notation even existed, people created and preserved their music, using only their innate senses. They learned music similar to the way we all learn languages — by imitation and repetition of the sounds they heard.

We believe all humans are born with the ability to be creative through music. But in our culture the creative seeds are often misdirected — even stifled — through well meaning but needless regimentation.

Formal classical music studies came about some 500 years ago, and linked music education with mastering music notation. This changed the notion of how one learns music. In a sense, the notation system took music away from the people and entrusted it to the educated few.

But now, thanks in part to audio recording technology, we’re learning music once again through the aural process. Now almost anyone can participate without a tedious lifelong dedication to mastering the notation system.
