You don’t want to play Mary Had a Little Lamb for ever and whilst Frere Jacques is the first song here, The Maestro Online easy piano songs are far more engaging! You’re definitely excited to give it a go. You will learn your craft with expertise from the beginning.

These easy piano songs contain only 3 different notes. As you will learn, this bespoke methodology will have you doing so many things with such few notes that you will significantly develop as a musician from the first lesson.

Do Ti La So

At level 2 piano courses, you understand solfege and you are using more pitches, chords, keys and improvising. By adding notes below “Do” you have a much greater melodic vocabulary. These easy piano songs will have you playing in your style already. Easy piano songs give you the freedom to experiment, to be creative and to create your own cover versions already.

Easy piano songs also give you the opportunity to learn The Maestro Online method and become used to this unique style of teaching. Please note that as a library member you are entitled to request bespoke courses. Can you think of another easy piano song that should be in the library? You can also request a short zoom call if you need support. This is not an app, this is a personal service!

piano courses summary

Online Piano Courses: Train the Musician In You

1. Complete Musicianship

This subscription piano courses are not a ‘copy me youtube tutorial’; they train you to be a real musician with thorough musicianship skills. Each piano course has many pages, using relative solfege, videos teaching melody, two independent hands, chords, counterpoint (completely different things happening at the same time), adjusting textures, improvisation ideas and guidance and then notation if you would like it: chord symbols, treble and bass clef, sight-reading derived and guided based on elements within snippets such as Who Wants to Live For Ever or classical pieces such as Dvorak’s Largo.  The purpose of the piano courses is to allow you to play the way that you want from the get-go, think “in keys”, improvise and give you the skills to play anything on the piano that you would like by ear or by reading.

2. Tasks, Objectives & Certificates

Each piano course includes clear tasks and objectives on every page which you tick off as you go. By the end of the course you see the summary of your objectives and a light-hearted quiz on what you have learned. On completion of all objectives and the quiz, a downloadable certificate becomes available. There are even league tables for logging on and for gaining certificate points should you be up for a bit of gamification!

3. The Human Touch

There’s a human being behind this library – once a member, you can even request specific courses. There’s also the opportunity to make contact and discuss your challenges.

Low monthly fee, cancel any time. Learn at your pace, when you want, in the comfort of your own home.  

Special offers for schools and institutions available.
