ACCOMPANY SONGS ON THE PIANO
Classical piano lessons mainly consist of one thing: reading music. And although this is an important topic, it takes a while to master it well - after all, we have two different keys on the piano, one for the right and one for the left hand. But there is also a shortcut: learn to play chords. With a few chords you can accompany your favorite songs very quickly, after all, most songs only consist of 4-5 chords. Learn the most important chords, rhythms and how to combine hands in over 50 video lessons. You can read what you have learned in the detailed PDFs and also practice using audio files - or you can start right away with your favorite songs!

WITH ONLY A PAIR OF CHORDERS
ACCOMPANY OVER 100 SONGS
Accompany more than 100 songs with just a few chords? That sounds a bit sensational, doesn't it? Yes, but it is true. Most songs have very similar chords, the songs that are coming out today can be learned to accompany really quickly once you understand chords. Of course, it's also important that you learn rhythms and be able to create a bass line as well. This course is based on these three pillars and you will acquire sound knowledge in all 3 areas.
