In Unit 1 you’ll begin learning:

  • Proper piano playing technique 
  • The basics of reading piano music – 
    • including simple rhythm and
    • how to read your first music notes in treble and bass clef, 
  • Music theory
  • And, you’ll get your fingers ready for developing more coordination!  

Unit 1 is the first of 6 units in Year 1 Comprehensive Beginner Piano Lessons

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!
