In this class, Jacob Lamb takes you through the basics of learning piano, with no prior knowledge necessary! Consider this your first piano class. We'll start with the basics: Notes and terminology - using countless graphics and views of the material to make sure nobody gets left behind or lost.
We dive into playing two notes at a time, and how to play any chord in the world - which unlocks any song in the world!
Each lesson video features closeup views, as well as pictures to help you grasp new information quickly and easily. There is also a workbook attached in our course for you to follow along and practice the songs shown in the videos.
By the end of the course, you'll be able to search for any song online and begin playing through like a natural!
