Perfect introduction to the piano!
Jonny is an amazing teacher! Thank you!
Excellent Introduction
This is a superb primer on the basics of beginner level piano. It is much better than any lessons I had as a child with teachers who were much more pedantic in their approach to imparting knowledge. In this course, you will learn more as Jonny walks you through the very approachable material than you could ever get from a teacher who has to worry about dealing with dozens of other students, all at different levels and all who have different needs. The improvisation lessons in this course make it fun and exciting. Definitely begin here if you're new to piano.
Absolutely Phenomenal!
