Rooted in early child development and learning theory, the Hoffman Method teaches children to not only play piano but to truly comprehend music. 

Its multi-sensory approach engages their natural curiosity and creativity while providing a high level of musical proficiency. 

Your child will love becoming a well-rounded musician with Mr. Hoffman! Kids start playing music by ear to build a strong foundation of musical understanding. Students will progress to understand music theory, learn to improvise, read sheet music & rhythms, and more!

“I have two children who have learned to love practicing the piano because of your fun, information-packed videos! Thank you!"

The Hoffman Method was created by Joseph Hoffman. When he started teaching piano, he tried various methods. None of them provided the kind of complete musical training he wanted his students to have. Some methods emphasized note reading and others mostly focused on playing “by ear.” None of them seemed to have it all. So, he created his own approach: the Hoffman Method!
