I am able to do so much more things in piano because of you. Your biggest fan.
Wow, thank you! I’m very glad you’re feeling more confident in your playing as you work through our lessons. Keep up the great work!
I’m terrible at this
I’m sorry to hear you aren’t feeling confident in this lesson. Is there something in particular that I can help you with?
its funny i just found one of my friends comments i think the same thing he said
You a really a great pianist and teacher
Wow – thank you! We’re glad you’re enjoying our lessons.
yeah they are so awesome!!!!
The fall was so funny!
I love it
I love hot cross buns!
I ran out of keys for the exercise please help me
A piano or keyboard with at least 61 keys is required to successfully complete all the songs and exercises in my lessons. If your piano is that size or larger, try starting an octave lower (that means finding the next G down in the low direction of the piano). If your keyboard has fewer than 61 keys, you will find yourself occasionally running out of keys while doing finger power exercises, but just keep working with the notes you have and practice the hand-over-hand movement even when the keys run out. You may want to ask around to find out if a friend or relative – or even a local school, library, or church – has a full-sized piano that you can play on sometimes to practice the full exercises. I hope that helps! Good luck and happy playing. – Mr. Hoffman
Mr Hoffman I can never get the three note chords down its almost impossible for me to get the hang of it.I’m not sure if I’m going to ever be ablfree note three note cards.I just can’t play those three cords at the same time,it’s just too hard.Any suggestions?
Hilarious! A total classic.you will be recognized for that unforgettable fall maybe even become a comedian
Thank you Mr. Hoffman, I learned a lot from you. I’ve been watching this videos for a long time now. I’m in unit 2. I like the end of lesson 35, it was funny.
noah its me jeremiah your friend
Thank you, Mr. Hoffman. I love the way you demonstrated how to fall off the piano bench. You are the best!
Cathy isn’t my real name it’s Elizabeth. I’m having trouble with the three note cords. Any tips you give me to help me get better? Thanks! Elizabeth
I agree, 3-note chords are quite tricky at first. I simply suggest that you watch Lesson 34 over again, as many times as needed, and follow my suggestions in that lesson carefully. Finally, just keep practicing a little every day, and I bet you’ll get it within a few days. Let me know how it goes! Best, Mr. Hoffman
the ahhh! part was funny at the end!
i know right
thank you *
Thank you so much for these videos! I used to take piano lessons from my mom (an amazing pianist) when I was younger. I quit, but one of my new years resolutions was to learn to play piano. I have had so much fun with these lessons! You are DEFINITELY making the world a better place, because these are free, and you explain everything so it is so easy to understand. I just finished Lesson 35, and I can’t wait to keep learning!
