mr.hoffman is there a way you could delete your other profile(s)
Do you mean delete other students from your account? If your student or profile you want to delete has a free account, go to the account dashboard, then click on Students, and then click on that student’s avatar. That will take you to their profile page. There’s a red link below “save changes” that says “Delete [student’s] profile.” Click there and that should get rid of the profile. If you want to delete a premium student, you first need to go to the manage premium page and toggle their subscription from Premium to Basic (Free), and then follow the instructions above to delete the profile. Let me know if you need more help!
that was pretty bae
what? what do you mean
Hello Mr.Hoffman, I really enjoy your online courses. I’m just curious, do you use your own method books for piano teaching?
Hello! Yes, I do teach using a method that I developed. You can learn more about it here on our “about” page.
can you do a video for Amazing Grace?
Thank you for the suggestion! I will add it to our list of potential future songs.
i love this piano playing leans
At my middle school my music teacher says that so is Sol. Do you know which one it is,or does it even matter?
Both are correct! Traditionally, Sol is used but the L is not usually pronounced. So, I have chosen to use So in an effort to simplify solfège for beginning piano players. I hope that helps clarify. Happy Playing!
you are welcome, sir
Dear Mr. Hoffman I love your lessons there so fun and amazing I’ve never seen anyone teach music like this it’s an easy way for me to learn and it’s free I’m so happy are you learning skills you’re so fun and I specially love when you do bonus lessons keep on making my lessons Mr. Hoffman I encourage you you’re the best teacher other bonus lessons keep on making my lessons Mr. Hoffman I encourage you you’re the best teacher !!!!!!!🏆🏆🐬🏆👍🏻👍👍👍🏻👍🏻
Wow, thank you so much! I am so glad you are enjoying the lessons! 🙂
Hello Mr Hoffman,
I am an adult learner and love your lessons. Thank you so much. When analysing the music I can manage to get the rhythm and write it down but realise I have a problem analysing pitch, ie whether the notes repeat, step up or step down etc. (although I can sing back the notes). When you do the solfege/show the answer I can then hear it but I can’t yet do this independently. Is this something that will come eventually do you think or is there something I can do to practise this skill? Many thanks for your time.
I am so glad you are enjoying the lessons! Ear training is definitely an important component to being a well-rounded musician and is also a skill that can take time and experience to gain confidence in. If you keep practicing and working on it then you will most likely see improvement! I would recommend reading our article on Developing a Musical Ear which has some helpful information as well as ideas of how to practice these skills.
I hope this helps. Good luck and Happy Playing!
Many thanks for your feedback. I will read that article.

Got my piano for Christmas (been asking for 3yrs now)
RSVP ASAP ???? ????
And thanks for lessons !!!!!!!!! Also play violin????
You’re welcome! I’d love to offer online violin lessons at some point, as well as other instruments. First we want to get our piano curriculum up to intermediate and advanced levels, so it may be a while. I hope that helps! – Mr. Hoffman
Mr. Hoffman, I think I’m better with the C major pentascale since its flatter and smoother.
Same, and it is for most people but me need to learn how to play scales we are so frailer with not just the easy ones.
I love rain come wet me. I think it sounds graceful.
I like this song to. I wonder if we can add chords to this, like frog in the middle?
Absolutely! You can try adding chords to just about any song, in any key. We’ll get more into chording in future lessons, and eventually with patience and diligent practice you will start to “hear” how chords could be added to melodies you already know. Thanks for asking! – Mr. Hoffman
my new favoret song rain come wet me it is so cool
Do you have any lessons on E major pentiscale or any other letter?
Yep. My first lesson teaching and using the E major pentascale is Lesson 58, and many other lessons introduce and use other pentascales. When you reach Lesson 120, you will have learned every single major and minor pentascale there is! – Mr. Hoffman
Could you send me the accompaniment for Rain Come Wet Me? email@example.com Thank you so much for all your work!!!
It’s on its way via email. Enjoy! – Mr. Hoffman
Can you please send the accompaniment for rain come wet me. firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks.
Why don’t you do a challenge were you do the song crossing your hands HT eyes closed?
That sounds like a great challenge! You could also try singing the lyrics or solfege alone, then as you play. Another challenge is to try playing the song while someone else is singing – it takes some skill to play your own part well while also listening and following along with another person. Good luck! – Mr. Hoffman
Can you give me some really hard super challenges for this song? The ones on the worksheets were too easy for me because I know this song by heart. Thank you Mr. Hoffman
I LOVE YOUR LESSONS!!!!!
If possible, could you please send me the sheet music for the song “Rain come wet me” to email@example.com. Thank you very much.
It’s on its way!
Can you please send it to me too? Or is there a downloadable file link? We have already purchased the worksheets and it’s not there.
We live in a remote location in Australia, so one-on-one piano lessons weren’t an option for us. After a google search for “free piano lessons”, there you were! 8 year old really loves the lessons, and we find it breaks up our homeschool day having a ‘different teacher’ in the room with us 😉 Thank you and God bless your work.
I’m so glad you are finding our lessons helpful! We’ve sent the sheet music via email. Good luck and happy playing!
I made a huge rain stick with a LOT of nails,
a cardboard tube, a LOT of (stinky) duct tape and a lot of beans.
It is about half as tall as a man.
how do i know when to skip the fa or the mi or any other one?
I’m sorry, Albert – I don’t quite understand your question. Could you either clarify here or using our contact form? I’m happy to help! – Mr. Hoffman
Mr Hoffman I love your lessons
Such an emotional piece Mr. Hoffman. Wasn’t expecting it. Makes for a lovely change. Wish if I could play the way you played at the beginning of the video! Anyways, I want to get a clarification. The third line… it’s rhythm is like
Ti-Ti (keep-aw) Ta (ay) Ti-Ti (ever-y) Ta (one)
Yes, you have the rhythm correct 🙂
You’re both right! 🙂 I’m very glad you enjoyed hearing and learning this song, Shobhit.
Thanks a lot!! Your website helps me with my piano. 🙂
thank you Mr.Hoffman and thank you woman that is taking the video you do a great job.This is violet.Hi Mr.Hoffman I am already on lesson 30 ! = ) bye bye
I didn’t know the ledger line was plastic.
love your lessons. 🙂
Thank you so much for your piano lessons Mr. Hoffman. I enjoy learning piano. I am 60 yrs old. I want to learn and play in the village church we have in an Indian village. God bless you.
do you have a advanced class ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
GREAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
I Love your lessons 🙂
I love your lossons:)
Jesus our God will bless you! God bless you!
Mr. Hoffman by the way I have a younger brother who has done more lessons than me. 🙂 did the lesson wild horses today!
COOL RAIN STICK!!! great lessons I can’t wait for you to bring the finger puppets into all the lessons. 😀
what happened to the pupetts
I’m sorry that most lessons after Lesson 10 don’t have a little surprise at the end after the credits–yet. Lessons 11-60 are mostly lessons that I filmed over a year ago, before I got the idea to add in puppets at the end. But, don’t worry, the puppets come back in Unit 4, and eventually I hope to re-film all of the lessons with the fun endings. Thanks for watching and learning with me! -Mr. Hoffman
How,are we supposed to do all those keys and sing it’s hard to focus while i sing! Everybody thinks its easy to play all those keys in just like 10 seconds i mean whats up with that? And nigh or whatever what does it mean?
P.S. THX -:) 🙂 🙂 really helped me learn songs and keys thx for making this website! I think my favorite would have to be woodpecker tap tap!
you probably wanted mr. Hoffman to reply, but I have a suggestion: try singing without playing then playing without singing, then both for half of the song, then when you get that down, do the other half. I hope it works!
in this case nigh is an old-fashion word for near.
Thanks, Moriah, for helping out! It’s a great idea to work on singing and playing separately and then try them together. Another thing you can try, once you’ve mastered them separately, is to ask someone else to sing while you play so you can focus on the notes but also hear them together. Also remember that anytime you struggle with a concept, slowing down helps a lot. – Mr. Hoffman
My kids love the puppets too! Especially the ‘I’m playing with chords’ 😛
Hello Mr. Hoffman. My name is Rocio Rodriguez and I am a general music teacher in El Paso, TX. My school has a piano lab ans I’ve been using your lessons for two years as part of my curriculum. I appreciate you are providing lessons for free. My kids love them. Thank you for all you do. Ms. Rodriguez
You’re a great teacher… I had some lessons berore your course but you give good memorization and practice tools. I look forward to the more advance lessons, which I know I will be downloading the practice material.Thanks for the lessons! :- )
Thank you for your piano lessons. They have taught me a lot.
Hey Joseph Hoffman! It’s O’shea’s sissy! And I’ve been wondering if you can actually reply back to me and my brother.
I’d really appreciate it if you could, and by the way, my brother loves your finger puppets! That’s why I think he’s been telling you about them all this time, but please reply back when you can!
O’Shea’s Sis. Dearly
Hi O’Shea and Dearly, so glad you enjoy the finger puppets at the end of the lessons! Sorry that I haven’t added them to all of my lessons yet. I just had the idea to do that recently. So, when I re-filmed lessons 1-12, I added them, but I haven’t had time to re-film my other lessons yet, since I am now working on Unit 4: Lessons 61-80. Eventually I’ll probably go back and re-film all the earlier lessons, too, so they all can have a fun surprise at the end! Thanks for watching and learning with me. I hope you enjoy learning to play the piano! Your friend, Mr. Hoffman
I am working on it now, and it should be ready by the end of May 2014. Thanks for watching and happy playing!
Your SOO Awesome! My little sis is now 10 and she’s capable of doing everything! YOUR THE BEST! Anyway, she has so much fun when she learns new songs and music notes.
Hold on Joseph Hoffman, my sis wants to tell you something….
Hi Joseph! Your the best at everything in music I know! And I hope to learn from you and be as great as you one day! I know that I need more finger practice, ’cause I can’t make my hand bounce up and down like a trampoline… But also, what happened to your finger puppets? They’re funny! Last, can you please comment back to me? I hope you can when you have time
Thank you a lot, Joseph Hoffman! You’re the best! My little sister loves hearing what you say and plays along to everything! Once again, thank you!
my sister loves this course so much
Thanks a lot sir!I still did not get a proper hand movement and I cannot move my hands in a flowing way,but I know I can do it after more continuous practice.
