Get the most out of your lessons, get the e-books!

You can just watch the videos, but if you’re serious about learning piano you’ll want to practice. The ebooks are available unit by unit or as part of a larger discount bundle.

The lessons of Year 1 are progressive, so you’ll be moving forward with each lesson you learn. It’s a good idea to do some review as you learn as well.

I would suggest doing no more than 4 lessons in 4 days. Then work on that material, practicing until you have ease. Protip: Practice slowly, your brain learns faster when you are relaxed! Some people will take just a day or two to review become comfortable with the material and others might take a week or more! This is the beauty of self-paced online learning!
