The fundamentals of learning to play piano for enjoyment are really very simple, but many teaching methods are either inconvenient, expensive or will leave you bored and unmotivated.

If you just love the instrument and want to play piano for fun, if you want to know enough so that you can learn a song you love, or write your own songs: I’m here to tell you that you don’t need all the complicated stuff that leaves your head spinning.

What you need is someone to guide you through your piano learning step-by-step.

It all starts with my piano essentials mini-course:

Super Basics - Learn To Play Piano Course - The Essentials of Playing Piano.

In this course you will learn:

• the layout of the keyboard and how to identify the notes easily

• how to number the fingers to quickly learn new patterns
• the small steps we use in music

• the finger techniques used to play scales

• major and minor scales - how-to build from scratch

• what exactly is the key of a song? The great unlocking!

By the end you will be able to:

• find Middle C and play a song just by reading numbers!

• play major and minor scales up and down the piano!

• play a final song along with the band in three different musical styles!

Kia ora! I'm a lifelong pianist and piano-music enthusiast from New Zealand! After my music degree, I cut my teeth as a developer and presenter of the highly successful Rocket Piano DVD method (teaching 90,000 students worldwide), then spent 8 years as music editor for Europe's largest print music publisher.

While working in the industry I noticed a lack of accessible, easily-digestible piano resources online. So in 2016, after moving home for the sunny beaches of NZ, I began creating online courses with the primary goal of making the piano quick, simple & fun to learn: Piano Picnic was born!

Three years later and I've taught over a thousand students how to make progress on the piano without becoming bored with the whole thing! My specialty is coaching piano in a way that feels like a friend is at the piano with you, motivating you toward real progress!
