Dear piano player,
if the following situation sounds familiar to you, then you are among the people who I want to support with all my heart. Why, I hear you ask? Because you spend your free time creatively, with the nicest hobby in the world: playing piano.

Do you know that too?

Sometime you sit at your piano, look at the keys and wish that learning piano would be easier? Do you often feel insecure and fear your own failures too much to want to learn how to play the piano?
Do you have difficulty coordinating playing the piano keys with left and right hands at the same time?

Does your motivation dwindles and so does the fun you get from to learning the piano, because your music does not groove as well as it should?

If you are learning piano for the first time or have not played improvised piano for more than one or two years, then you will certainly have been in this situation before.

But don't worry, because there is a very special piano lesson that will help you overcome these problems and your joy of playing will increase again: Using my many years of experience as a piano teacher, I will show you how to learn to play improvised piano.

The online piano course with PDF reports, videos and audio files is free for you on the website. Take advantage of the helpful tips from the PDF reports with their videos and start to improve your piano playing in an effective manner. As I said, with just three chords you can begin, and it’s easier than it seems.

If you like this free online piano course and you are confident with your learning, then you have the option to continue piano lessons with me, in the form of books, videos and earning weekly online piano lessons. I will show you how to get there in the free online piano course.

"I am 63 years old, with the intention to practice the piano. I was practicing piano lessons from other websites. Including the use of various exercise books. Who admitted that it is difficult to perform. I'm not following the training. Until I found your tutorial. You have to teach the piano a clear, easy to understand (although I have no knowledge of English is not so good), especially video presentation includes explicit instruction. I was encouraged to play the piano next. I sincerely compliment."

"I'm very proud to have like teacher of music. I play all lessons that you send to me. when you have time i would like you send to the chords many ways Ican use them when I play a song. Iwish you don't leave me early because I love music. I think you will understand, thank you."

"Dear Katrin,
To tell you the truth I admire the way you teach on how to play the piano. I don't even know how to play the piano, I am already 70 years old, a Senior
Citizen who believe no matter what age you are but it is the determination to learn something like the piano.
I am a lover of music since my childhood, we are very poor and I need to work to help my mother who at that time was a single parent. Okey we go back to piano lesson. the chords you are teaching us were all okey to me. I would like to request to you if you don;t mind that give us a song and with the chord to follow. For I will learn more on this by chord just teach us very slow. We pray that God will keep you always healthy and strong.
Your Student who sincerely believe in you. To be a piano professor is a very difficult job. I remain,"

"Hi, Katrin,
I appreciate the help you have extended to those who are interested to learn how to play organ for free. I am already playing but my knowledge is just basic, very elementary i may say. Everything is just self-study because i am so much interested to really learn how to play the keyboard.

When i saw your site offering a free lesson, i was so excited. But i became more excited and enthusiastic when i read the first lesson you sent with a video for me to follow the lesson well. I never knew, till then, that there are various ways and keys to press with only 3 chords (F-C7-Bb) and in a different position. One day, i tried to play the chords of SEEK YE FIRST and tried to press the corresponding notes. After several try, my keyboard was already playing.

I was able to play the chords with notes without having the actual notes in front of me. It's amazing. I am going back every now and then on the lessons you sent me. I am trying every now and then and i believe i need to practice more... practice playing, as really playing the keys of the keyboard... and most importantly, practice to listen.

Thank you, Katrin. I hope to receive more lessons from you. You speak clear in the video, you explain well and the pdf notes really helps me so much.

God bless you for your kindness and help.
