• Wolfgang Amadeus Motzart

Hi mr Hoffman, love your lessons and could you please teach us He’s A Pirate from Pirates Of The Caribbean?

Thank you! And thank you for the suggestion. I’ll add it to our list of requested future songs.

Mr. Hoffman, my son Arnold wrote this to you:
I really like your piano lessons because it is so fun and useful for kids. And, I always wanted you to make a lesson to this music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5iEfPWRSds . I hope you can do it!
P.S: If you can’t see the link, just go to Youtube and search, Dancing Line The Autumn.

Thank you Arnold! We’re so glad that you’re enjoying the lessons, and I’ll add your suggestion to our list of requested songs. Happy playing!

Thank you! I’m glad you’re enjoying it.

I’m glad you liked it.

Speaking of love, could you do a video (or two) on for King and Country’s “Proof of Your Love”?

Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll add it to our list of requested songs for future lessons.

• Mandy

That after video was really funny!

Thank you! I’m so glad you liked it.

• Shruthy

I enjoy all lessons of Hoffman academy. Thank you very much for providing such lessons.

You’re very welcome! I’m so glad you like them.

• Valerie

Why do you teach about a pentascale(5 notes) when there are seven notes in a scale?

That’s a good question! We decided to start with pentascales because they’re a little simpler. We’ll move on to full scales later in the lessons.

Hi Mr Hoffman thanks for all your lessons they are super awesome .
I have a question for you is it okay to learn the piano with in the European style it’s like Do instead of C no letter names
and no the solfage is constant .

I’m glad you’re enjoying the lessons! Yes, it’s certainly all right to learn using solfège instead of letter names. And in some countries, as you said, a fixed solfège system is used instead of a movable one. This blog post, What is Solfège? explains more about why I’ve chosen to teach the musical alphabet as well as a movable solfège system. I hope that helps answer your question! Good luck and happy playing!

• Jimmy

I have a ❤️ but it’s NOT a secart

• Andrea

Is the ladie singing your wife ????????????

• Jaime

the yes i do parts in the song are backwards.

Do you mean that they use the same notes, but one line goes up and the other goes down? If so, that’s right! Great observation.

• carla

You know, i LOVE LOVE LOVE this class but i also have a question ,Do i have to play all the songs i have learned so far? I mean, every time I practice?

That’s a great question. Once you’ve learned more than a handful of songs, it can take up all your practice time to review every single one! Instead, make it a habit to review several songs from your most recent unit at each practice time, rotating them as needed. As you progress, it’s ok to drop off your practice of your earliest songs, reviewing them only occasionally. Later this year, we plan to launch a new, subscription-based program that will include personalized practice instructions to help with these sorts of questions! In the meantime, I hope you continue to enjoy my lessons! – Mr. Hoffman
