These aren’t 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. Do you like popular tunes, classical music, movie music, game music, or holiday songs? There are video lessons that teach songs within all of these categories! 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.
