Home School Piano


Perfect for ALL Levels of Piano Players… HomeSchoolPiano has been designed to teach even absolute beginners how to play the piano. Built on solid methodology that integrates throughout all 18 units, the rhythms and technique that you learn at the beginning of each unit carry over into the reading, song and improvisation learned later in the unit.

This method is important because it gives you the opportunity to “get it” later in the cycle. If you miss something at the beginning of the unit, it will be presented again later for review.

Developing Musicians, Not Just Pianists! HomeSchoolPiano is different than other piano methods because we focus on developing the entire musician. Far too often students learn only to read music and their musical ear suffers. HomeSchoolPiano develops the ear, reading and compositional skills of each student equally which makes them a better pianist and a full musician. Students access all of the HomeSchoolPiano content directly through our website. The program is divided into three “books” which are PDF files that you can download and print. Each book is further divided into 6 units. Each unit contains a lesson on:

Technique – where you’ll learn how to play faster and more accurately Rhythm – think you have bad rhythm? You won’t after these lessons! Ear Training – train your ear to hear melodies, rhythms and chords with ease Reading – learn how to read music faster and learn how to create your own accompaniments using techniques I’ve learned from years of training Song – learn to play really fun songs that are catchy and turn heads Improvisation – unlock your creative side and create your own music Bonus – each unit includes an extra bonus section for students to learn advanced techniques. This is particularly useful for advanced students Each unit is about 60- to 80-minutes of video lessons. It takes most students 2-3 years to complete the entire system.

With today’s technology, I realized I could use video and the web to deliver my lessons to students and help them learn the piano from home. Since HomeSchoolPiano lessons are all video-based (this means you see your teacher in the video) students are able to learn more effectively than by using software.

HomeSchoolPiano adapts to how the student learns. If the student is in ‘drive mode’ and is excited about learning, they don’t have to wait till the next lesson to move forward. The videos and quizzes are ready for them at any time.

However, if the student is busy with other activities, vacationing or core academics need more attention right now, no problem. The lessons are always there waiting for them to return. Best of all students can login from anywhere.

Every time a student logs in at HomeSchoolPiano, they can see exactly where they left off. Wether it be a day or a week, the student can always pick up exactly where they left off.

Going on vacation? No problem! There is no private lesson to cancel, no bill to pay.

Find you learn best at 7am? No problem! Since the lessons are always available, always waiting for you, you can learn any time of day or night.

Worried about needing special equipment? I’m happy to say you don’t need any! The HomeSchoolPiano program works perfectly with any computer (including tablets) and any piano or keyboard is fine. Convenient and Cost Effective Private piano lessons can get expensive. On average, it costs $99 per-month for private piano lessons. HomeSchoolPiano gives you 2-3 years of video-based lessons which would cost upwards of $2,376 with a private teacher. Multiply this by more than one student per household and it can be costly.

We are strong supporters of private piano teachers. However, we know that the time and cost involved with private instruction does not always fit into a family’s budget. HomeSchoolPiano gives you the freedom to learn at any time of day or night from the comfort of your home. Best of all, you get to go at your own pace.

Often students feel embarrassed or nervous playing in front of their teacher. Our lessons remove this barrier to learning by making the lessons fun and engaging without being stressful. Need to see something played for the 100th time? No problem, just rewind and play it again!

Our virtual keyboard makes seeing what is being played a snap. You will see every single note played light up along with the note name right above the piano keyboard.
