thank you very much, thanks to you i’ve learned the d’s on my piano!
That’s wonderful! Keep up the amazing work. 🙂
Can u learn piano even if u don’t have one,because I only have a synth.
Yes, it’s perfectly fine to start learning on an electric keyboard. While it’s best to have an piano, or a keyboard with 88 weighted keys, it’s also all right to start out with a smaller keyboard.
Yo where is my easter egg ending?
Even finger puppets need a vacation sometime. Don’t worry, they’ll be back soon. 🙂
Hello Mr Hoffman, thank you soon much for your lessons. I enjoy watching your videos and I have learnt a lot of things I didn’t know.
You’re very welcome! I’m glad you’re finding the lessons helpful and learning new things!
Wonderful lessons and charming instructor, my daughter has been practicing everyday for two weeks. The practice and games are also a lot of fun. Thank you so much!
You’re very welcome! We’re glad you’re enjoying Hoffman Academy. 🙂
Hi sir Hoffman I like every video you posted and I love your way to explain and I would like to thank you sir and I appreciate that . I have only one question is every lessons you did free or we need to pay for next levels!? 🙏
Thank you! We’re glad to have you learning with us. To answer your question, the video lessons are free. If you pay to upgrade to a premium account for a monthly or yearly fee, you gain access to sheet music, practice sessions, games, and other supplementary materials, but anyone can watch any of the videos for free.
don’t practise until you can get it right practise until you cant get it wrong.
thank you for the great lessons 🙂
You’re welcome! And that’s a good way to think about it. Keep up the great work!
Is there a way to see what’s been accomplished or already complete for the lessons? I find we have to just remember on our own (which is dangerous)!
There isn’t currently a way to do that, but thank you for the suggestion! We’ll consider adding that feature in the future.
I really enjoy your teaching! It is understandable and I hope to become very good at playing the piano! Thank you!
Thank you! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the lessons. Good luck and happy playing!
Hello Mr. Hoffman, thanks for the amazing lessons. Although I am quite wondering a couple of things. First of all how many lessons should I do to not “overload”? I want to learn, I have no rush but I’d like to be skilled soon! Also how long would it take to learn th Epifania skillfully if I did that quantity of lessons every day, all 7 days and practiced those lessons skills’ after I watch the video for 30 minutes?
Learn the piano skillfully not Epifania!
Thanks! I’m so glad you’re finding the lessons helpful! The rate at which you should be watching them will depend on your individual circumstances. When you feel like you’ve mastered the material in one lesson, it’s fine to move on to the next one. Check out our blog post, When to Move On to the Next Lesson for some more ideas about deciding how quickly to move through the lessons. The rate of improvement will be different from student to student, but if you practice diligently, there’s no limit to what you can accomplish! I hope that helps! Good luck and happy playing!

You’re very welcome! I’m glad you’re enjoying the lessons.
My son, Ryan, would like you to know he loves learning the piano and he is “the master of it”.
That’s great! I’m so glad he’s enjoying the piano and that he’s feeling confident in his mastery of the instrument. 🙂
i love this this is Bret’s message
Thanks! I’m glad you like it!
I’ve your piano lessons
what is the name of the song?
Are you talking about the song that we’re learning in this lesson, or the song that you hear at the beginning and end of the video? The name of the song that you’re learning is “D Journey” and the song that I’m playing at the beginning of the video is “All of Me” by Jon Schmidt. Does that answer your question, or were you talking about a different song?
Great , really great , so appreciate his method
I played piano years ago I picked up up and started your course
That’s great! We’re so glad to have you learning with us!
Is it ok to have a 49-key keyboard?
Yes, using a keyboard with 49 keys is just fine! If you’re using a keyboard with less than 61 keys, you may need to make a few adjustments to some of the songs and exercises used in the lessons, but other than that it shouldn’t make too much of a difference.
How should I practice “D Journey” with a 61-key keyboard? I don’t have 4 D’s for my right hand…
That’s a good question! For this song, you don’t necessarily need to start on the same D that I start on in the video. I would suggest starting on a lower D, which should give you enough space to play the whole song. I hope that helps! Good luck and happy playing!
No surprise at the end
Yeah there was no surprise.😕Maybe it’s only on some of them.
No surprise at the end…:(
Sometimes even puppets need a vacation! 🙂
Where did they go?
I agree with Kimberly that it would be nice to have a practice session for this video.
While the materials and the audio are available, and maybe not finding them was the issue there, it’s great to have that few steps worth of instructions to follow. For example, read the instructions on the D Journey Music Sheet, play this 5x. Having had a look through the materials I see that for each lesson that there is a second video there is no “practice session” so maybe there’s a good reason as to why there aren’t those for multi-part video lessons.
While that might seem fairly basic to where its not been included already, I for one feel lost when it comes to what to practice and this would help alleviate this for me. It would also give the sense of “this is what you need to do to practice this” to my 5 year old, without me having to impose that on them.
We were not sure if there needed to be more than one practice session for multi-part lessons, but it sounds like it would be very helpful for students to have the second practice session. We will definitely take this into account for future improvements to our program. Thank you so much for your valuable feedback!
It would be really useful to have a practice session for this video. Possibly with the track for playing D Journey, so that we don’t have to search through the video and then rewind to practice again.
