    Mr. Hoffman, I hear that the Hoffman Academy is soon going to be teaching guitar lessons online…….If that is true Mr. Hoffman, are you going to be teaching us how to play the guitar?????

      That’s a good question. Since my specialty is piano, most likely we will have a different teacher teaching the guitar lessons.

      We don’t currently have any online guitar lessons, but we are planning on eventually expanding our curriculum to include some other instruments.

        Thanks! At the moment I am learning the guitar on the internet, as I have no teacher.

    Hi Mr Hoffman, I’m Darius. I live in England for nearly 3 years. I am enjoying your lessons. If it is possible, could you make a lesson teaching Fur Elise? Thank you.
    Darius.

      Hi Darius! We actually have some tutorials for Fur Elise already. You can find them in our list of Popular Music lessons. I hope that helps!

        Thank you! I actually found your Fur Elise tutorials on the internet. Then I found out you have them on Hoffman Academy. Sorry to bother you!

    Mr. Hoffman, thank you for all you are doing for us, your students. However, I am unable to open pages 18 and 19 theory for this lesson. What should I do?

      Thank you so much for pointing that out! We’ll get that fixed as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can download the complete materials for unit 6, which will include those pages. To get to the complete materials, click on the little circular icon in the top right corner of the page, then click on “account.” From there, click on the box that says “materials” and it should let you download the complete printable and audio files for the unit you’re currently working in. I hope that helps!

    If you do V7 Chords in contrary motion, is it Ti Fa So or Do Re La?

    • Hoffman Academy logo

      That’s a good question! The V7 chord would still be Ti-Fa-So in contrary motion.

      These finger exercises are prepping you for a lot of exciting and advanced techniques!

      Yes, we do! In addition to piano, we also teach guitar, voice, and a pre-k introduction to music class.

    At 75 I might be one of your older students. Just completed lesson 108 but am still practicing LADY LADY.

    It’s good for people at any age to be learning something and your website is a great source for learning piano. It is well arranged and easy to follow.

    I’m sure that many are benefiting from your website.

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Mr. Hoffman, about how much time does it take you to make a full unit? And while we’re at it , when do you think you’ll finish unit seven (if you started)?

    • Hoffman Academy logo

      It takes quite a while to prepare the curriculum, then the script, and then to film and edit the videos, but have started Unit 7 and plan to have it all ready sometime next Spring. Keep up the great work! – Mr. Hoffman
