Robin, I’ve been working with the course for about a week now, and it’s incredible. Just the practice aids and the different scales and memory techniques in Book 9 are worth the price of the course, alone! There are two things that make this course stand out. First, all the video and audio files are embedded in the lesson. I have yet to find another piano course that makes it this easy. It’s so nice not to have three files going at the same time!
The second thing is that you actually get to play in each lesson! And the songs are not “Mary had a Little Lamb” types! From the Beatles to Bethoven, it’s all there. I have several piano courses that I have ordered over the internet. This is the one I use because it makes learning fun! I’m amazed! Once you get the rhythms down, you really can sound like a pro! Great fun! Thanks for making this available at such a reasonable price. Anyone who doesn’t grab this up is going to go the long way home! Joy!
Hi Robyn, I bought the lessons a few weeks ago I’m virtually ecstatic with how I’ve finally managed to play after a year of slogging away trying to learn to read music. I’ve given up on that and I’m really learning so quickly now by applying what you teach.
Please feel free to put my testimonial on your website. I have literally tried everything I found online to learn and I was considering giving the piano away to a friend when fortunately I found your lessons. Thanks a lot! Cheers
Hey Robin, Just wanted to say thanks for this course. I live in Nashville TN and so naturally I write songs. I play the guitar but I wanted to start writing on piano.
This is a great course for that. Someday I’ll get around to sight reading and maybe playing some classical music but this is a great way to get up and running fast for song writing on the piano.
Hopefully in the next six months I’ll have some piano style demos up on my website http://www.thejottedline.com to go with the ones that are already there. I feel like I owe you more money.
Robin, I purchased your course a couple of years ago and I must agree with all the other comments that your course is absolutely fantastic. It is simple, straight forward yet very effective.
It makes the complex understandable and for those of us who don’t want to master music theory, it gets us playing quite well in a short time. I can’t say enough good about your program. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
Hi Robin, Thank you so much for the course and I will look forward to receiving the other books next month. You have a lovely teaching style and I will benefit as I am the lead vocalist in a function band http://www.fairplaylive.co.uk but also a very frustrated pianist!
This course is exactly what I have been looking for with all the shortcuts that have been such a mystery to me for years. Well done Robin an excellent product. Kind regards. Paul”
Enjoying the piano like Ive never – bless you for your insight into teaching – it works!! Please accept my highest respect for possibly the best tutorial of all time – I am 74 and have seen a few. You have made me a happy slave to my keyboard and sound!
Robin, I just wanted to give you my kudos for a fabulous course. I’m a late starter, and don’t have as much time as I’d like to give theory and background their due diligence. However, your course is making what was previously just an arduous task in memorization (with other methods), a much more structured, understandable, and fun process.
I’ve picked up more in the short time I’ve had your course (I’m up to Ballad Style) than with the all the other methods I’ve tried. Thanks!
Again, thanks so much for the most logically arranged, easiest to follow, and best ‘bang for the buck’ piano course I’ve seen, and used. Sincerely,
Just wanted to say THANKS! for a terrific course. I worked through book one last night and was thrilled with the style, the ease of use and the chock full of information. Thank you. Beats the hell out of little brown jug. Cheers, G.”
“I’ve perused thru all 10 books and from what I’ve seen so far, I must say, this is a great course and you have an unique approach.
One I haven’t seen before and I’ve tried a lot of them. Unsuccessfully, I might add.
Your course seems to be what I’ve been looking for for quite a while. I seen a gazillion of them out there but nothing compares to the way you present piano lessons. Good luck with it.”
I just wanted to Thank You for the incredible program that you have put together. I must say that you over delivered on this one. Although I’ve played guitar “by ear” since I was 12 ( I’m 61..you do the math) I’ve never played piano before in my life. (I take that back, I tried to play chop sticks when I was in my teens but couldn’t get it right). I’ve always thought it was too difficult and for some reason I was never able to get the hang of reading music so playing piano was just a dream I have had all my life but thought was out of my reach.
My grandson (6year old) started piano lessons so we bought him a nice keyboard for when he comes to visit and I don’t exactly know how I found your offer on the internet but I did. At $39 I thought it was too good to be true but I thought what’s the most I could lose ($39) so I gave it a try.
I couldn’t believe it, and neither could my wife! Within an hour, I was making music. I’m not ready for the public yet but I am actually playing chords to rhythm and The amazing BROKEN CHORD BALLAD lesson blew me away to see how really simple it is. That one lesson intro and about 1 hour of practice has me sounding like I’ve been playing for a while and my whole family can’t believe I really learned all I have in less than 3 days!
I’ve always thought most of the testimonials that I read online are more hype than fact but Piano for All is everything you said it is and more (and I am only on Book 1 about page 35) I will tell everyone I know, who’s ever thought about playing piano or keys that this is the real deal and I hope if you use this testimonial that all who read it will believe me. Most people who know me personally will testify that I’m an honest man who tries to always tell the truth. God bless you,
Thanks again Robin. I purchased your software and to my amazement my 10 year old daughter has taken an extreme interest in learning the piano via your lessons.
She has spent hours and hours playing over the last two days and has progressed independently through 47 pages of the lesson 1 book. She is having the time of her life and it is fun to watch. Thanks. Dave
(later update) Thank you for the tips Robin. My daughter has literally practiced all day long today and has progressed through books 1 and 2. I found your tips to be most helpful and timely. In regards to the testimony. I would not mind at all if you included my testimony and offered my email. I will also get you a picture of my daughter playing the piano to include as well.
Thanks for everything. With two days of use I already feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of your course. I think my other daughter, my wife and I are all anxious to learn too. If only we had another piano and possibly an additional computer to learn on
A belated note to say a very big thank you for putting together such an interesting, motivating, straightforward approach to piano playing! I absolutely love the techniques.
I’m playing everything now and it’s so exciting!!! I’m still only on Book 1 and I’ve learned so much already, I can’t imagine what you have in store for us in the other books. Anyway, I’ll keep you updated with my progress. Thanks again! Best wishes, Jane X”
“Hi Robin, Yes, I am! I’m taking it one stage at a time as I don’t want to miss anything. However, I have taken an advance peak at the blues section (for “Hideaway”, you may remember?) and I now fully understand how to “adapt the formulas” as you put it. We have a band rehearsal on Tuesday so I’m hoping to surprise my fellow musos! Happy to oblige with the email idea for fellow students: I’ve even got my Mum playing again thanks to you! Keep up the good work. Best wishes. Jane”
Robin, Your instructions for the downloads were helpful and easy to follow. I did need those instructions, but I just went through them step by step. I had no problem downloading for my PC and also adding the info to my iPad. I love that, by the way.
It’s fantastic to have the iPad on the music stand and be able to play, then read, then listen to an audio clip and watch a video clip. The only problem I had was that I wanted to keep going through the book and playing. It was very late by the time I went to bed. I’m sure I looked ridiculous because I had earbuds to listen to the iPad and larger headphones over it for the keyboard. I didn’t want to wake up everyone in the house.
Loving it so far. I haven’t read music in over 22 years. It’s coming back to me though. I played the saxophone for 7 years in school, but I have never played the piano. Thanks for your quick responses, Stacey
