      Whoa! That’s great! And now you have lyrics to your composition. 🙂

  • Macy Allred

    My favorite song is frog in the middle thanks for teaching me to play that song.

      I’m so glad you love that song! It’s one of my favorites from our early units. Keep up the great work!

  • oneil

      Yes, very much! They’re great at helping us teach piano.


    My keyboard has about 38 keys in all. Will it work with all your lessons?

      You will need to make occasional adjustments on a keyboard that size, particularly with the hand-over-hand finger power exercises, but it should still work as a starting point. Good luck and happy playing!

  • Ana

    I think that song was the hardest and the best.
    You are so AWESOME!!!

      Wow, thanks! Isn’t it a great feeling when something is really hard at first, but through hard work and patience you finally master it? Keep up the great work! – Mr. Hoffman

    new words for this song:

      I love it! Or here’s another one:

      Who’s that playing the piano?
      Who’s that practicing today?
      P B is practicing piano.
      P B is going to be great!

      – Mr. Hoffman 🙂

    why is everyone so worried about the camera woman!?

    • Ikeoluwa

      Thanks for making these videos

  • moriah

    i luv the puppets! but i doubt i luv them more than my little sister does! : )

  • Christine

    That was like THE first time you got to see the camera woman.What’s up with that?

  • barb

    Joesph, I have been seeing your piano lessons.

    They are AWSOME!

    Thank you for teaching!

  • samantha

    Hey I think you didn’t do this intentially but, you covered up the camera woman taping the whole thing which I thought was really funny.

  • Dante

    You’re a good teacher! But I couldn’t help noticing someone in the reflection in the piano after 4:49.

  • Gina

    I like this lesson very much. I’m glad that you have us use the D Pentascale in our materials at home so that we get used to playing different scales with our fingers. Thank you for everything that you do. I haven’t played piano in a really long time, and this is a great way for me to refresh and get stronger with my basics.

  • Luke

    Hey whats up everyone those puppets are cute. 🙂

  • Florence

    Hello Hoffman,why would you use other languges?



  • Santhiya

    Hello sir! Your classes are wonderful. I have a doubt when we play C major which finger to be used for A B and C

      When you are playing in the C Major pentascale, you will use your 5 fingers to cover C, D, E, F, and G. You will not have any finger on A or B. Later on, when you progress to harder songs, we will move our hands around on the piano more, but for now our songs just cover the range of 5 notes at a time.
