Pianoforall: The Incredible New Way to Learn Piano & Keyboard

Sound Like a Pro From the Start with This Innovative Approach to Learning Piano

By Robin Hall | in Online Courses

Pianoforall is far different from the music lessons you took as a kid. Designed to take you from beginner to intermediate levels right away, this training starts your music education off with popular rhythm style piano, similar to Billy Joel, Norah Jones, and the like, meaning you get to sound like a pro right from the start! From there, you'll expand step-by-step into ballad-style, blues, jazz, ragtime, and improvisation and eventually move on to creating your own melodies.
