Our Approach

Foundation

First we start with the melody and chords. These are the essential building blocks for making music.

Style

Next we apply stylistic tools to bring the music to life. This could include jazz chords, blues riffs, walking bass lines, and more.

Improvisation

Finally we solo over the chord progression. Discover the patterns and techniques to improvise with freedom.

Following this approach, you will finally understand the music that you are playing, and you will be able to apply the techniques to hundreds of other songs.

"I have had the pleasure of having an amazingly talented instructor for over a year and a half. I went from only knowing classical to having fun learning lessons with Jonny exploring jazz, rock, swing, ragtime, and freestyle. I absolutely love what I have learned from Jonny you will too!"

Levi Johnston

"Jonny May has been the best piano teacher I have ever had. His teaching techniques are very unique and very helpful. He has taught me multiple types of styles ranging from ragtime to blues. His years of success playing the piano and talent have inspired me to practice hard and become a great pianist. I have learned more and become a better player in the past 10 months with Jonny, than the years of lessons I have taken with other teachers."

Hi, I’m Jonny May.

Teaching piano is one of my greatest joys, and over the past 15 years, I’ve helped over ten thousand students take their piano playing to the next level. With my unique style-based learning approach, I’ve guided complete beginners to full-time professionals in my online courses and live learning events.

I believe it’s important to make learning the piano fun from the start. This is something I learned from performing as the Main Street Disneyland Pianist for over 9 years, and from entertaining over 30 million people with my Youtube Videos. I can’t wait to show you what you’re capable of.
