Piano-ology is so much more than a collection of music and piano lessons...

Piano-ology is not a “method”. It’s a huge multi-media library of know-how and learn-by-doing lessons that cover the entire range of things you need to master if you want to play like an artist.

Piano-ology is an unflinching rejection of all pedantic teaching methods–and dispels many widespread myths about music-making and piano practice.

Piano-ology demystifies the many things that make music seem harder than it really is.

Piano-ology instills the attitudes, knowledge, and habits you need in order to become your own best teacher!

Piano-ology is for you if…

  • You are a self-motivated STUDENT who desires to study music for the right reasons: love of life and the love of people.
  • You are a self-motivated TEACHER who wants to deepen their practice and share their love of music with others.
  • You LOVE music. You do not even have to be a piano player. Musicians and artists of all kinds will discover universal musical and life lessons here.
  • You know that “overnight success” is a myth–that real SUCCESS requires love, work, and discipline.
  • You are tired of being a “BEGINNER”. Despite all your dedication and hard work, you feel frustrated by painfully slow progress and feel like you haven’t really mastered anything.
  • You know that there is an ARTIST inside you, despite being told that you are “untalented”.
  • You are an accomplished player who wants to take their playing to the NEXT LEVEL.

If you can sway to the rhythm and be moved by a beautiful melody, you are already musical. You already possess the raw materials to play at a level far beyond anything you’ve ever dreamed possible. All you need is the love of music, the will to study, and expert guidance from someone who’s been there.
