What makes Hoffman Academy the best way to learn the piano? Read on and find out!

Not just piano lessons, it’s a complete music education

Our founder, Joseph Hoffman, holds a master’s degree in music and has years of piano teaching experience. He and his team of experts have put countless hours into creating a program that nurtures well-rounded musicianship in a fun, playful atmosphere. Students not only learn to read music and play songs, they learn to play by ear, improvise, compose, transpose, and understand music theory. This complete and carefully planned curriculum is easy to use and easy to learn for anyone, whether they have prior experience in music or not.

Lots of lessons for lifelong learning

We’ve produced over 300 video lessons (and counting!) presenting a full range of musical concepts while teaching songs students love to play. Hoffman Academy lessons can take you all the way from a beginner with no prior music experience to a confident, independent musician able to learn and play a variety of piano music.

Learn on your schedule, at your own pace

Watch Hoffman Academy lessons any time, from the comfort of your own home. Need extra time to master a concept? Rewatch as often as you like. Feel like you’ve got it? Go on to the next lesson.

Guided practice plans

Detailed practice plans take the guesswork out of what to do between lessons. Each practice plan walks through exactly what to work on each day.
