The piano is–hands down–the best instrument to begin learning music on. If you want to play another instrument eventually, learn piano first! It is an endlessly complicated instrument, but it is also one of the easiest to play. Other instruments like guitar, trumpet, and violin, take weeks or even months of work just to get the hand coordination or mouth embouchure correctly. With piano, you can easily play right away just by pressing down on a key. It’s also the easiest for understanding music theory, because scales and intervals are all laid out visually.

Yes! We have accounts specifically for piano teachers with multiple students in a studio. A piano teacher can add seats and create assignments with our unit books and extra resources. Many students go home after their piano lesson, and (unfortunately) forget what they learned. With a teacher account, the student can review the new theory concepts or repertoire using our video lessons during the week, plus extra theory worksheets and online learning games that we provide to help the learning go even deeper.

Yes. Outside our series of online piano lessons for beginners, online piano games, and practice sessions, we have many additional learning resources for download that can help students learn to play the piano.

Begin by creating a teacher account, and add a seat for every student. To determine which lesson to begin with, look at our Piano Lesson Library page. That lists all the content for our online piano lessons in one easy summary.
