    Hoffman do you do any other instruments

      We do hope to someday post lessons for other instruments, but first we want to get our piano curriculum up to intermediate and advanced levels, so it may be a while.

        Hi Mr. Hoffman! I just saw this comment and wanted to ask in the future you could do violin? My sister really would like lessons for violin. I am more into piano while she would like to get into violin. Thought I should ask! Thanks!

          Thanks so much for the suggestion! We don’t know for sure which instruments we’re going to teach in the future, or which one we’ll make lessons for next, but we will definitely keep your request in mind!

      The materials for units 1-8 are available for purchase in our store. You can chose to purchase the materials for the units individually, or you can get a premium subscription, which will provide you with access to the materials for all of the units on a monthly basis.

      To download materials you have already purchased, log in to your account, click on “Materials”, then click on “access them here”. Find your order and click on “View” and it should provide links to download the materials.

      If you are already a premium member there are multiple ways to access your materials. If you go to your account dashboard and click on “Materials” it will let you download the printable and audio files for the unit you are currently working on. You can also go to the practice session after any lesson and download the materials needed for that specific practice session. I hope that helps! If you have any trouble, feel free to comment again or contact us!

    in lesson 5, you mentioned about tall back when you are sitting, but when you are standing, is it the same posture?

      A tall back with relaxed shoulders is a great part of posture whether you’re standing or sitting, but if you’re talking about standing while playing a keyboard you’ll probably find it more difficult to stand tall while reaching down to the keys. It’s important to remember that good piano posture is all about keeping your body healthy and comfortable while you play, so if your circumstances require a slightly different position, it’s ok. If you tell me a little more about your set-up, I’d be happy to answer more specifically.
