As a professional Music Education Teacher with more than 18 years of experience teaching all music instruments to all age levels, I first joined Piano With Jonny (PWJ) in August 2019 to strengthen my understanding of Jazz and increase my technical and improvisational Jazz skills. For the past 13 months, PWJ has not only heightened my Jazz knowledge and Jazz playing abilities, but above and beyond those learning skills, PWJ has provided connections and support with a world-wide, on-line music community that comprises the friendliest, kindest, most spirit-boosting collection of talented musicians I have ever had the opportunity to meet in my entire life.
PWJ offers an amazing treasure trove of piano lessons geared for every playing level and encompassing every Jazz genre you can imagine including: Jazz playing foundations; monthly piano challenges; student collaborations; live on-line members’ events; quick tips about jazz playing techniques; monthly live student recitals; special guest teachers; and a huge library of Jazz arrangements; plus so much more.

I discovered PWJ via YouTube. I started playing piano in Jan 2020 and, despite buying a course on Udemy, didn't feel I was making any real progress, so signed up for PWJ in June.

You get a few welcome emails to get you started and these were really useful for helping you find your feet. The site itself has a forum where members ask questions, provide suggestions, or PWJ make announcements.

A private Facebook group allows members to post progress videos in a closed, supportive environment.

The best things about the site are:

1) The amount of content is mind blowing, enough to keep you busy for years
2) The content is well arranged in various ways e.g. learning tracks aimed at different levels, music styles, or focus. There are also regular Q&A sessions, student recitals, and more
3) The sense of community. PWJers are very welcoming and will always provide positive feedback. Want some constructive criticism? Just ask, but it will still be nice. This is great for people lacking confidence.

I would highly recommended signing up for PWJ to anybody interested in learning piano or indeed existing players wanting to take their playing to the next level. You won't regret it.

The Price to Value is Outstanding and the Lessons are the best around!

As an adult learner who likes the appeal of online learning as my preferred method for learning how to play the piano, I can't say enough good things about the Piano with Jonny membership.

Although I've always wanted to play the piano, sadly I never made time for it during my youth. Now that I'm near 50 years old, I still have this 'life goal' and decided to do something about it. When I began researching "online learning for piano," I was initially thrilled to see so many online apps that promised to help beginners like myself learn how to play the piano. However I quickly discovered that none of the apps could actually deliver on that promise - even after signing up for memberships with Flowkey, Simply Piano, etc, nothing was working for me - yes the apps were a good starting point, but they always left me wanting more and I didn't know where to turn for answers. Worse yet, I almost decided to give up on the piano because it just seemed like it would be too hard.

Thankfully, I found Jonny May on YouTube and that's when everything changed. Jonny shared amazing free content on YouTube -- all of which was better than the paid apps I was using. Unlike the apps, I could understand Jonny's teaching style & his DETAILED explanations on the vids were exactly what I was looking for.

I signed up for a free trial on his membership site and was blown away by HOW MUCH CONTENT Jonny has on his site for members - the sheer volume of online vids is incredible! Many of the vids are 30+ minutes and there are more topics than I can count. I can't imagine how much time it took Jonny and his staff to product so much content but I'm grateful they did.

Best of all, I can say that (although I am still a very green novice at the piano), I've learned more during my first few weeks with Jonny, than I have in 6 months on Flowkey, etc. Being able to learn new techniques AND begin to learn how to play actual songs has been fulfilling. I especially enjoy all the 'jazz cocktail' lessons Jonny has - they are incredibly fun! I'm so excited about the piano now and I really feel like Jonny has given me a clear path to becoming a piano player!

The price of a memberships is minuscule compared to the value (and quantity) of the content available for learning and the ability to sit at the piano and actually be able to play it is priceless! If you are considering a membership, take my honest advice - it's worth it.

Learning about improvisation; getting to know other musicians who are passionate about their craft; the fact that there are courses in most styles of music and just about every aspect of music theory.

There is an art to teaching, which many of even the best players have not achieved. Jonny's teaching techniques and strategies are absolutely on par with his consummate pianistic abilities. In my opinion, whatever your starting skill level, there is no better learning platform for piano than Jonny May's.

I have been studying piano for many years and have a degree in instrumental music. However, my skills have always centered around classical training and technique.

I discovered Piano with Jonny through Facebook and began watching the free videos and tutorials. The thing that impressed me was the methodology that that Jonny uses with his lessons. The lessons are very thorough and well paced. Jonny does a great job explaining the basics and helping his students understand the music theory behind why things work the way they do. In other words, the lessons are about more than just learning lines, runs, riffs, and chords. Instead, the lessons are structured around solid music fundamentals.

I began working through the lessons a few months ago and I have been focusing on the Blues Lessons and Challenges. Since then, I have learned how the blues patterns and scales work and I’m now able to improvise in the blues style. Thanks to PWJ, I have improved in an area of my playing that has always been a struggle for me as a pianist.

Piano with Jonny is more than just a membership. It is a family of musicians who share and encourage each other through videos and comments. This is important because musicians need a circle of friends who who are working toward the same goals.

Piano with Jonny offers lessons for beginner, intermediate and advanced musicians so the lessons will work for any level of proficiency.
Based on my experience, I am convinced that students who begin at their proficiency level, follow the courses as they are presented, and consistently practice, they will improve and meet their goals.

So I’ve always wanted to learn how to play cocktail jazz / improv / soloing. I went through 5 or 6 piano teachers without any luck.

I stumbled upon PWJ in Facebook. I couldn’t sign up fast enough for the jazz trial class. Loved it.

That said, after I finished, I balked and didn’t take advantage of the deeply discounted member price. Regretted it.

December rolled around and I got an email from PWJ with a special holiday price. I didn’t hesitate this time. I couldn’t pull the MC out of my wallet quickly enough.

Two things I love about this program:
1) the variety of courses and how they are structured. They start with the basics and build to an advanced level.
2) the community is SO supportive. It doesn’t matter where you are on the piano spectrum of playing, everyone is pulling for you to achieve and advance.

5 STARS !!!

Jonny beautifully brings together the classical and jazz piano worlds in a way I've never seen! I wish I had access to this when I was young, and am so grateful for an opportunity to learn again from a world class teacher at an affordable price. Highly recommended!

I’ve been a member for 9 months now. I will say that this is definitely a top tier learning platform. There is just so much content. Jonny is not here to get as much money from people as possible. He TRULY cares about his students learning experience. He is constantly putting out loads of great content every month. PWJ is also great, because there is a wide variety of learning topics, so it is very appealing to almost all piano players. I HIGHLY recommend you start the free 14 day trial, and if you don’t like it, just cancel it. What have you got to lose?

Having struggled for many years trying to learn the piano, with a few brief lessons here and there, I had reached a brick wall and truly thought my learning potential and growth had ended. However, since joining PWJ a year ago, I have been given a whole new outlook to the piano and so grateful for this learning experience. The results so far are fantastic and PWJ Facebook community is so encouraging, it just keeps my drive and motivation on fire.

Where should I start? In short I would simply say that Jonny makes learning piano easy and fun!

But I'll have to say a little more than that...

I tried to self teach myself for a while but I realise now that I wasted precious time! I learnt so much more with Jonny the past 2 months than I did the past 2 years!

First of all, the learning platform is second to none. There is a huge amount of content there that's very well organised. With the great filter system you can easily find courses, lead sheets, smart sheets, arrangements or anything you can think of.

Jonny's way to teach is fun and he nearly makes it easy. It's hard to explain but if you watch any of his tutorial videos on YouTube you will probably see what I mean.

There is a monthly challenge running every month based on a different style of music or particular song. I didn't take part of it yet as I prefer to focus on learning all my foundations properly first but I can see the community getting heavily involved and learning so much from it. I look forward to take part of it.

Which brings me to mention the Facebook Group/Community. I've never been part of such an amazing community, filled with supportive people. No judging or negativity there, only support and constructive feedback which has an immense value.

So in conclusion Jonny he is an enthusiastic teacher and fantastic piano player - he really care about our piano journey and success.

If you consider getting the Piano With Jonny membership it's not just a list of courses and music sheets, it's an evolving and engaged platform that will fast track your progress and piano goals!

I’m a singer/songwriter and have always wanted to sing to a piano accompaniment by myself, not rely on piano players but haven’t tried seriously for so long as I didn’t have confident. Along the way, I had piano teachers but most of them are using very difficult theory which I had allergic to.

Specially I was trying to be able to do impro for Jazz standard songs but haven’t received lessons that enable for me to play it. When I first watched Jonny’s lesson video, I was able to play and was a sensational moment.

Specifically, the lesson is built by very small steps and the 360 degree input style (verbally, vision, scores, backing track and all) are super easy to understand as well as the lesson videos are organized so well in the site and help us easy to start, restart or enjoy different types of music simultaneously.

Not to mention the network among lesson mates. People with the same enthusiastic about music encouraging each other and that giving me and my daughter a great motivation to practice.
I joined PWJ with my 11 years old daughter. She's really enjoying practicing.

I encourage people who are considering to join PWJ, this is the place to enjoy practicing piano and share the joy of music with friends!

After 6 years of classical piano school, I needed a new challenge. I considered learning another instrument or taking a new direction with piano. So I searched YouTube and was led to Jonny May. After seeing his Quick Tips, I felt so enthusiastic about learning, so I decided to give PWJ a try! I have been a member of PWJ for 8 months now and have had the most fun on my piano ever! None of my previous teachers taught me this way, and I find that I am progressing fast with PWJ. Even though learning takes time, Jonny is very efficient in how he teaches. Whatever your level is, whatever style you want to learn, you'll find lots of courses for your interests! With these lessons I am set for the rest of my life! I've already made my decision for this next year: instead of classical music school, I'll be studying at PWJ!

A great added value and incentive is also the community. You play for a very enthusiastic, positive and worldwide audience, you always get applause whatever your level is! I have no stress at all to play for the students and I spend hours watching their videos! They are all very inspiring and educational. If you want to learn jazz, blues, latin, bossa nova, gospel, pop, and rock and roll... come to PWJ! You will not regret it! Thanks, Jonny, for all these extensive, challenging, fantastic courses and Quick Tips. Thank you for the solid advice, for being so responsive to us, and the fun and beautiful songs we learn!

I've been intending to learn the piano for most of my adult life but I'm a confessed serial quitter and have never stuck at it... that is until I found PWJ. I signed up because I loved Jonny's bluesy style of playing, but I was delighted to find so much more than online lessons. I have tried other online platforms in the past but have felt very alone in my practicing, and have given up just weeks later. At PWJ though, I feel like I'm part of a community. Jonny and my fellow students know who I am. They know what I'm practicing and how I'm progressing. I love that I can share my progress with everyone because the accountability keeps me motivated. I enjoy the monthly challenges that keep me on track and achieving my goals, because I have a deadline to work to, I love the student collaborations where we all get to play together, and I eagerly await the live shows and parties where we get together and chat with Jonny. The best part of PWJ is that there is so much on offer - take what works for you; leave what doesn't. No one judges. Everyone is friendly and I can promise you, you'll start to love practicing and will make the progress you have been dreaming of!

I would like to take this opportunity to share with new members, and with existing members of pwj, what is, for me, the main benefit of this program. I find that I am learning how to learn. The structure of the many lessons found here on pwj is based on establishing firm foundations in theory, technique, and style and then building upon those foundations. For me the results are coming quickly and to my surprise and delight are being retained in my memory. I believe the reason I am able to remember what I am learning is because the lessons have this “structure” I mentioned before. It all makes sense to me in a way it never did before. Maybe it wasn’t that I had bad teachers when I took lessons before, maybe they were bad, I’m not sure. Maybe I wasn’t taking lessons for the right reasons, but I can tell you this- this program works whether you are beginner, intermediate, or advanced. It works because of the structure but it also works because it is fun! What good is all the structure in the world if learning is boring? I confess that prior to joining pwj I had begun to see myself as a lost cause musically, incapable of learning new techniques, unable to break bad habits. I was proven blessedly wrong on both points and now feel completely revitalized. I do not dread practicing, I look forward to it. I lose track of time doing it. Jonny’s teaching method is very special in that the student never feels inferior or incapable. The tone of instruction is the same whether he is dealing with beginners or experts. I took one of the beginner courses to brush up and noticed that even though Jonny could easily speed through these early lessons, he doesn’t. He takes his time, is genuinely enthusiastic about the sounds he is producing and teaching no matter how rudimentary and I never sensed impatience or condescension. This, I think, comes from a mind that truly believes in the ability and potential of the student. No one will be sorry for taking this course. Students reap 10 fold over what they sow.

I thought I was signing up for online piano lessons. But PWJ is so much more. I am astonished by the vast amount of material available 24/7. The monthly Live Workshops are amazing. And the community forum has been a wonderful way for members to connect, encourage, inspire, gently nudge and challenge each other.

I have loved the piano since childhood. But my own musical creativity has been stifled by five decades of playing other people’s music, handicapped by a total dependence on written notes, and an inability to memorize or play anything by ear. I am learning things that I never heard before. I am having so much fun jamming with myself as I learn to play Boogie Woogie and Cocktail style. And I am excited to learn how to improvise and uncover the creativity that has been suppressed all these years.

Jonny is the best teacher I’ve ever had. And PWJ is enabling me to give my own piano students a richer experience than I ever had. I am so thankful.

Having worked in education for more than thirty years, in my country, Argentina, I easily recognize a well-structured curriculum, course, lesson, a proficient teacher and a motivating
environment.
All these qualities I've found in PWJ educational platform.
From the very first day of my membership I've been blown away by the difference between this way of learning versus taking private lessons, which is a solitary task.

First of all I'd like to say that on PWJ I find very interesting :
#The huge quantity of well-prepared resources available at any time.
#The interesting extra-activities that keep us happily busy many hours, and that make us lose the notion of time we've been sitting at the piano.
#The proficiency of Jonny as professional and teacher. His genuine interest for teaching and for the improvement of his students. He not only answers quickly all the questions, gives
advice, shares his musical secrets with everybody, but is also an extraordinary human being, very sensitive , always attentive to the emotional needs of the members of this community.
His uplifting messages cheer everybody up.
#The awesome Facebook Community, so supportive and inspirational.

Finally ,I can say that I've learnt more musical theory in these four months I´ve signed up to PWJ than in all the years I've been taking private classic piano lessons.

I would describe Piano With Jonny as having two main components: 1) The website with all the course material, and 2) the interactive community that you become a member of.

At first I joined for the course material. Specifically, I loved Jonny's course on blues piano, and how he breaks down his complex blues playing into small, manageable techniques that you can practice separately, making it easier to track your own progress. In these lessons Jonny demonstrates each technique individually and slowly, with an overhead camera view, along with the sheet music of what he's playing. So for me, as an aspiring jazz pianist, his lessons are an amazing opportunity to see and hear great piano technique that is very difficult to learn in any other way.

But I soon realized, after having joined for a couple of weeks, that the real value of Piano With Jonny--very difficult to put a price on this--is the interactive community of pianists of all levels that you become a member of. This community turns out to be an incredible source of motivation and encouragement. It centers around an exclusive FaceBook group, in which members post videos of their current progress on whatever they happen to be working on, and also provide words of encouragement and advice on the videos of others. This community has a fascinating dynamic; many members find others working on the same thing, and their postings become motivation for each other. Others find themselves overcoming performance anxiety by taking the first step of posting a video. Your lifetime goal of one day finally learning to play the piano--which you might put off for years-- is suddenly transformed into small, daily, achievable goals. I find myself practicing more than I ever have, and actually enjoying it!

I came to Piano with Jonny (PWJ) with a long background in music, including some classical piano training. I had also tried various other methods, including private instruction and other online sites. While those had their benefits, I have progressed farther and faster at PWJ than using any other method.

Jonny May is a fantastic instructor. His courses are not short, show-off snippets, but in-depth skills teaching. Jonny always explains, shows, and guides in ways that are easy to understand. I always learn from every course I take, even in so-called beginning courses Jonny teaches things that took years for me to discover by other means.

And you cannot beat the price! I consider PWJ easily my best piano investment (other than my piano itself) I have made. I encourage anyone to check it out. You'll be glad you did!

PWJ is a game changer! My children (age 10 and 11) and I have been learning from PWJ for almost a year. Before PWJ, we were learning piano the traditional way that often entails playing unrecognizable music that makes it challenging to stay motivated especially today when the numerous distractions leave our children with the overwhelming desire to quit. PWJ has so many well-structured lessons with music that is extremely FUN to play and enjoyable to listen to while helping students build a solid foundation and technique the FUN way. Unlike before, we are now having a blast developing a repertoire of beautiful music with super cool rhythms, melodies, harmonies and applicable styles that we are happy to share with friends and family. For example, my 11-year-old son has recently enjoyed learning a song called "Jonnylito". The rhythm and melody are so captivating that his friends and family dance and groove to it when he plays. That is just one of many examples. PWJ has a magical way of making even beginner songs sound quite advanced, amazing and cool like no other. We also enjoy the benefits of learning at our own pace at the comfort of our own home from a true professional who is also very personable. As a member of PWJ, we have enjoyed the friendly community that provides much positivity, motivation, inspiration, support and encouragement. We see our journey with PWJ as a lifetime pursuit and we are excited and proud to be a part of the amazing PWJ family.

I studied jazz with a teacher for several years and he was OK. He had learned piano jazz at Berkeley. But he never gave me structure or exercises. Whenever I asked him How could I play this piece? he would rattle off a dazzling rendition of the piece which I couldn’t grasp and then say, Well you can do something like this ! Jonny actually gives you the KEYS to playing jazz, improvisation , blues, chord structures etc

Piano with Jonny completely renewed my love for music. I took formal classical lessons for 10+ years, but it wasn’t until I started PWJ that I was introduced to a whole new world of music. Blues, Jazz, Swing, Ragtime, Disney, etc. I had no idea what I was capable of playing. I learned more in 1 month at PWJ than I’ve learned in the past several years! The best investment I’ve ever made 🎶

I can without hesitation recommend Piano with Jonny as a fantastic learning environment for anyone who wants to go beyond simply reading sheet music. I have looked for years for someone who could teach this approach, and have tried learning what I can from books, but progress was slow until I found PWJ. I am amazed at how far I have come in just 3 short months. The courses are very well designed and easy to follow, in part because Jonny is wonderful at breaking down concept into simple steps that are easy to follow. But one of the greatest values and unique parts of the site is the community support. Sharing progress and asking questions of others in the group is motivating and inspiring, I can't praise this feature enough. It is never a chore to "practice" the piano, most of us find that on the contrary we have to force ourselves to sometimes take a break and attend to household chores or work. Joining PWJ has been life changing for me!

PWJ gave me back the joy of playing the piano. Last years I was playing obligatory in church.
Already playing for 40 years and dreaming of playing blues and other styles like latin and jazz (and integrate them in worship 😀)
Jonny learned me to play the blues, to improvise and above all: the understanding of scales, fingering, harmonisation and so much more…
Jonny is an excellent teacher and the PWJ platform (video’s, learning tracks, activity registration, etc.) is very helpful for my practice routine.
Also the interaction with other students is great and very stimulating to keep on developing new skills.
Practicing and playing piano 🎹 are now the most joyful moments in my life 😍

Before joining Piano With Jonny I was getting bored with my playing because I didn't have music that was challenging me or that was fun to play. Now with PWJ I have so many styles, arrangements, and lessons to choose from, and it's not just another lonely online course- it's a community of pianists of all levels who encourage and inspire everyone, AND you can get one-on-one assessment from Jonny May himself! How cool is that?! I only wish I had joined sooner!

PWJ is one of the best things I’ve done for my piano playing in years!

First, some background: I’m an advanced pianist and piano teacher in Chicago, Illinois. I’ve been playing for over 50 years, I have a degree in music theory, I’ve studied jazz piano with a well-known teacher. I’ve been teaching piano (mostly classical, but some jazz) for the past 28 years, and maintain a studio of about thirty students. I also have extensive experience playing piano at private functions, in restaurants and hotel lobbies, certain department stores known for their live piano music, and on dinner cruise ships.

But I’d grown bored of my playing. I knew that studying one-on-one would be expensive, and my work schedule is such that finding a time both I and the teacher were available would be difficult. I was somewhat hesitant to sign up for PWJ, because I thought that it would just be more of what was available from books or for free on YouTube. Why should I pay when I could just watch videos and teach myself? Nevertheless, I looked at the various online lessons available, and of those, PWJ seemed to me to be the best option. So somewhat reluctantly, I signed up.

Wow, what a great experience it has been in just the short time (a few months) I’ve been a member! Already I’m learning new ways to play pieces that I’ve been playing for years, I’m learning jazz theory that I’ve either learned and forgotten or never learned. I’m learning ways to freshen up my playing, which had become stale to me (and probably to those listening as well!). As a member, I have access to dozens and dozens of courses (with more being added every month!) so I can follow my interests and needs. I can, of course, schedule my lesson time to suit my work schedule; when I have time I can watch and work on a lesson or two, when I don’t have time, I don't have to show up for a lesson unprepared nor do I have to pay for a lesson I can’t attend.

In addition to the courses themselves, which are excellent, the PWJ community is a wonderful group of piano students who encourage each other, support each other, create study groups to work together in the same course, and most importantly, cheer each other on. I’m not really a “joiner” in that regard…. in groups both in person and online I’m usually a lurker. But this group has brought me out of hiding. We are encouraged to share videos of our progress, which I and many of my new PWJ friends do on a regular basis. When I first heard about this, I thought, “Yeah, that’s going to be dominated by a bunch of show-offs. No thank you.” I couldn’t have been more wrong. The videos people share range from beginners just starting out at the piano to advanced players who have regular gigs and have been playing for years, and of course everything in between. And there is no fear of having to post a “perfect” video. Just like the best in-person classrooms, people post where they are, mistakes and all. In fact, I’ve often told my own students who are learning to improvise for the first time, “You have a disadvantage in that it’s only you, the beginner, and me, the teacher. When I first learned to improvise, I was in a group with five other people, some of who had degrees in piano performance, all learning, making mistakes, and growing together. It made it much easier (and more fun).” The PWJ community helps create that same atmosphere, that we’re all learning together, and there’s no competition, no shame in being a beginner, and no shame in making mistakes or not knowing something. We’ve all seen rude, critical, and even cruel people in the online groups we’re a part of. But I’ve never encountered that in PWJ. It’s simply not part of the group dynamic. I can’t imagine it would be tolerated, either.

I’ve never met Jonny, but I can tell you that he is not only a good teacher, but it’s obvious that he is a warm and generous person. He didn’t set up a website and walk off to let it run itself. He regularly adds new courses, he has monthly workshops — long workshops in which he answers questions and teaches new things. He creates monthly challenges that many in the group participate in; he interacts with us in the PWJ members Facebook group. It’s clear to me he’s always thinking of ways to make PWJ even better for the members.

Since joining PWJ, my piano growth has gotten back on track after having been on a plateau for many years. I’m excited about the new things I’m learning and putting into practice. I’m not isolated (as playing the piano can be!) because I connect daily to others around the world who are also learning and growing. I’m watching them progress, I see my own progress, and I feel encouraged to keep my own practice going.

I heartily recommend becoming a PWJ member!

I started playing the keyboard on stage at the age of 16 without taking lessons. Since then, I have been trying to take piano lessons for a while, either with a teacher or on several online sites. I did not find my pleasure, I felt alone in my learning because for me music is not to play for only yourself. I discovered Jonny's site, I first took a monthly subscription, then an annual one (which I rarely do ) because I felt that I was no longer isolated in my learning.
I found through courses, challenges and this wonderful community that feeling of playing with others like in a band. It's great 👍

Since recently that I am on the site, I can say that my motivation has returned, my dreams have become possible.
I highly recommend Piano With Jonny for the quality of the lessons, the approach which is from the start to play different styles, and without forgetting this sharing in this extraordinary community which never leaves you alone in front of a question

Do I progress? yes it is undeniable.☺️

I am French, and it is not a barrier to subscribe to the site in particular by the clarity of the explanations and of the documents accompanying the lessons.

I have been trying to teach myself jazz for 40 years. I only got so far, I needed some help. I decided on PWJ mainly because the blues courses appealed to me, but there is so much more! Now I find myself playing several genres in multiple styles. I am impressed that Jonny shares "trade secrets" unlike some other courses, that keep that private. I am now using devices that I only dreamed of doing. Also, the course motivates you to practice! Playing is really half the battle and knowing WHAt to play s the other half. I no longer need to rely on just reading, I am free to improvise at will. Such freedom not needing sheet music any longer. I never thought this would happen, and it likely wouldn't have with out PWJ. Thank you Jonny for help getting me get a little closer to my piano dreams!

I am 45 years old last and I've never learned to play until last year I suddenly had the desire. I played a little electric guitar, but it is very difficult to play the guitar alone without a band. But with the piano, I could play alone with both the accompaniment and melody. I started watching some videos on YouTube and accidentally stumbled an offer to participate in 10-Days Blues Challenge from Piano With Jonny. This turned out to be exactly what I needed, and Jonny May captivated me with his approach to training. His course had an excellent combination of fully understandable material and pacing. I realized that Jonny's courses taught my favorite styles of music that I have always wanted to play... the rhythm of the blues, boogie, and rock and roll. I also realized that is very difficult find motivation when you play by yourself, and Piano With Jonny has an amazing Facebook community. In the community, I upload videos with my progress and peoples' support means a lot to me. I am very grateful to Jonny and his program! This is the best program and I sincerely recommend it to all fans of the piano!

Piano with Jonny (PWJ) is the best thing since sliced bread! I have played piano (self taught) on and off over 45 years. Since retirement I have been drawn back to the piano but found myself only brushing off old tunes previously learned. I came across the PWJ course and Wow, I am really on fire to learn. Jonny’s course is so thought out and so well done, it’s incredible. I feel like a kid in the candy store trying bits and pieces of the numerous offerings before I lock into a specific style area. My interests are blues, jazz, gospel, funk and Jonny covers it all. I have been working at it for a few months and my playing has improved considerably. The course is logically structured with progressive lessons for beginners to advanced. I particularly love the built in song sheet function that allows you to slow down the music, see notes on a keyboard, transpose, and print out. The courses also have professional background tracts that you can play along with!
Jonny May is not only a talented and accomplished musician, he is an exceptional teacher- clear and concise. You can see he really cares about what he is doing. The PWJ community is a terrific worldwide network of people who share a common interest- the piano. You can video and share your progress, get feedback and support. I find this very motivating. I could go on and on... but the bottom line is, this a great course, a great bang for your buck, and a great find in this era of online instruction. I highly recommend it.

Before I discovered piano with Jonny I was so bored. I had tried taking more piano lessons. I even got a new piano thinking that would get me excited about playing again. I wanted to learn new things like improv and how to play without sheet music. When I came across the PWJ Blues Challenge, all of that changed. I wasn’t even through the challenge before I knew I was going to become a member. Jonny and his crew are responsive and engaged in my learning and I don’t feel isolated in my piano education journey. Most of all, it’s brought the fun back into playing and learning.

I had been taking classical piano lessons for several years which I really enjoyed but I also felt the urge to expand my horizon and to learn different styles, especially jazz. I looked at dozens of online courses, but most lessons seemed to be of the kind where the student is supposed to copy the teacher and play the exact same arrangements.
Fortunately, I discovered Piano with Jonny. What struck me is how much effort Jonny puts into explaining the techniques that lead to those arrangements. He really provides a set of tools that I can use on other songs or improvisations. I also like the fact that the same base material (lead sheet) is used to create different styles of music (swing, Latin, ballad, ragtime…)
Although I feel I have gotten more than my money’s worth with these courses & workshops there is one thing that completely took me by surprise and that adds an enormous amount of value: The Piano with Jonny community. This is a place where people upload videos showing their progress. The community is super friendly & helpful. It is a real help in keeping me motivated.

I’ve been a member for about 6 months and have to say it has been the best decision. Prior to that I’d been having private lessons for a few years but having got the basics I wanted to move away from classical and more towards jazz styles and my teacher wasn’t able to help with that. I therefore turned towards online lessons on you tube and came across Jonnys free challenge. His lessons are so structured and break down concepts for any level of playing - I was hooked and enrolled for membership within a few days. My enthusiasm for learning is sky high and I love being able to access the lessons online so I can turn to it whenever it suits. The community is brilliant and provides massive support and encouragement - something else which was lacking with private lessons. The membership is such value for money; there’s always something going on with Q & A sessions, workshops, monthly challenges and member collaborations. I love PWJ and know that my piano playing is improving; better still, I’m really enjoying the journey.

The Piano With Jonny site is amazing just to start! Before starting PWJ, about year and half ago, I was trying to teach myself and this was not the most efficient way to learn. Since joining my playing has definitely improved just by learning from the instructional videos and monthly challenges that Jonny has put together. I am learning to play different styles I had no idea where to even start (blues, stride, bossa nova!!) His teaching method is easy to follow and challenging at the same time, but just like anything else you have to practice to get better! If you want to learn piano, you have come to the right place!

PWJ has helped me learn and really understand the theory, from a very simple way. I can actually see my progress, learn to play new genre, I find it cool to play with the backing track, specially when I'm starting a new course. I feel more confident when playing without a sheet music, even if I started learning with one. Thank you so much Jonny!

Piano with Jonny provides great courses to everyone form beginners through advanced players. I've picked up improvisation techniques that I currently use when playing jazz, and I'm starting to learn ragtime piano. Piano with Jonny also has great tips for improving blues accompaniment and soloing which I use when play gigs with a band that I am a part of. My only problem is that there is so many lessons provided, that sometimes I cannot decide which lesson to pursue (but actually Jonny has tips for handling that as well). There is also a great supportive community through facebook that provides feedback and inspiration. I'm very glad that I have joined this community.

I started playing piano since I was young, but never took it seriously. Since I finished school in year 12, I decided to take piano into my stride. Self teaching myself Jazz through various YouTube videos and books. Until I came across Piano with Jonny. PWJ offered me a platform that I was able to work at my own pace and my own ability, building my confidence in many genre's such as: Ballad, Stride, Ragtime, Blues and Swing, to just name a few. I quickly joined the facebook group, that is filled with over 1000 other members of this platform, to share our own progress and encourage others. This was been super beneficial for my growth, as it has provided me with a sense of community.
If you are wanting to progress your musical ability, I would highly recommend PWJ, as Jonny has a way of teaching that does not discriminate against any playing levels. Whether you have been playing for 10 years, or 10 minutes, you'll find something to learn.

Additionally, there is monthly challenges offered, that come in a weekly episode. By the end of the month, without realising it, you have learnt a new style/piano piece. Do yourself a flavor, give it a go. You wont regret it.

I came here to learn jazz and improvisation.
I had 2 teachers from whom I learned the fundamental things for which I am grateful and some things are also found here, but none taught me to improvise in the true sense of the word.
I think anyone can improvise, but not everyone can explain or make you understand.
I mean, I improvised and before I came here, I was doing it by ear but without understanding and I couldn't explain what I did there in that improvisation and evolution is slow.
Improvising is an art, a science, more precisely, always discovering something new, but it is absolutely necessary to have knowledge in your tool bag if you want to discover that something.
Now I want to learn other genres: blues and Latin and ragtime and boogie and gospel and funk even Disney and the list can go on.
I am very glad that I made this decision to join Piano With Jonny, and if you want the same thing as me you will definitely find what you are looking for here.

I joined Piano With Jonny to learn jazz, blues - anything improv! Despite 10 years of lessons and playing by ear since I was 4 years old, I am constantly learning something new from Jonny!
My playing has definitely improved since branching out into these new genres. My favorite thing is the monthly challenge - it's just that, a challenge that gets me out of my comfort zone and encourages me to share my progress with the facebook community. Side bonus - the community is FANTASTIC. You won't be disappointed!

When I moved to E. Coast from Seattle, I looked for a new blues piano teacher, but didn't find a great match. Most of the teachers only teach classical. When I found Piano With Jonny it was like hitting the piano learning jackpot! The flexibility and range of choices is awesome and Jonny breaks down each bite-size segment into practice routines that pay off immediately. The community challenges are encouraging, uplifting and inspire me to be a better musician. The result is I'm having fun and learning more every day. My playing is demonstration to me that this is a great value. If you have always imagined sitting down to play beautifully, know that it is within reach sooner than you ever imagined with a little daily investment of your time and attention.

Piano With Jonny has been an amazing experience. As someone who took classical piano lessons from ages 8 to 18, it has been nearly 20 years since I've played piano regularly. I have always wanted to learn jazz piano, so I decided to join Jonny's program. The experience has far and away exceeded my expectations. What I love most about Jonny's approach is the way explains everything and makes it very clear no matter your skill level. I have learned so much about theory and how to play these fun piano styles. He lays everything out for you in the lessons, and the PWJ community is full of awesome people that support you along the way. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned player, I highly recommend Piano with Jonny if you want to grow as a pianist.

I’m so happy I discovered Piano With Jonny! I’ve played piano on-and-off throughout my adult life and have felt stuck and frustrated. The PWJ platform is so well thought out and user friendly and supports my goal of going beyond the classical approach to explore different grooves, music styles and even improvisation! I’m like a kid in a candy store with all that’s offered on the PWJ website. Jonny is a fantastic and motivating teacher and the PWJ on-line community is so supportive. I’m excited about the progress I’m making and my renewed enthusiasm for piano!

Since I discovered PWJ, my playing has changed rapidly, it has improved technically and has become more colourful with new chords and styles.

Learning how to make music is the most exciting thing and makes me feel free, not just playing what is on the sheet.

Each lesson has its learning focus and I can learn them step by step at my own pace everyday.

I enjoy practising with backtracking and sharing my progress with other members, getting motivation and inspiration from them, not like practicing alone.

Now, practicing is my daily routine, what I keep in my mind is consistency and to finish what I've started.

As Jonny says "learning piano is like a journey", and as long as I have a destination, I'm sure he will guide me the right way.

I LOVE Piano With Jonny; in fact I’m kind of hooked. I used to play the piano when I was a kid, playing ragtime on any open public piano I could find. But regrettably I took 30+ year break before starting it back up again about 4 years ago. When I resumed I couldn’t find a focus or structure in my playing, as I kept trying unsuccessfully to start exactly back where I left off as a kid. Piano With Jonny helped me to reassess where I am currently at, what I can do now, and what I would like to do in the future. Jonny is a smooth instructor who is able to teach at all skill levels. The recorded on-line lessons are allowing me to learn, re-learn, and refine piano skills and music genres at my own pace. There is no pressure, unless I want to get the challenges in on a reasonable time with mutual support from fellow members attempting to do the same. PWJ is a VERY supportive on-line community of piano students who want to help each other out. And PWJ has helped me to finally set up a practice structure and focus that I lacked when I started back up.

Arpeggios. That's all I really knew how to do when it came to improv. As a result, I had some very boring arrangements with no excitement and life. I'm in the thick of learning here in PWJ and my arrangements are morphing into more exciting pieces. I find myself sitting at the piano to practice jazz ballad soloing instead of scrolling through Instagram. Can I play Baby Shark in different styles now? Yep, and the kiddos love it.

Jonny is a master teacher with an incredible knack for building curriculum that teaches far beyond the notes on a page. Just a beginner? He's got it. Advanced piano player?
Yep, he's got you covered. I've played piano for 30 years and am amazed at breadth of material I'm learning: the new techniques, scales I didn't know existed, jazz chords, and ways to practice to become a proficient soloist. Jonny provides the tools, then shows us how to use them so our piano playing can soar with the stars. I highly recommend Piano with Jonny!

Los vídeos están detallados y las partituras están súper claras.
También el hecho de saber que formas parte de una comunidad te anima a seguir .
Estoy muy contenta de pertenecer al grupo.

I think he knows how to make the difficult easy because he shreds your work in such a way that you are progressing gradually but surely. The videos are detailed and the scores are super clear.

Before I joined Piano with Jonny, I actually tried other online courses but it didn't work. I only practised and watch the videos 3x in a year.
Since I joined PWJ from mid August 2019, I practise everyday now, it gives us motivation.
Jonny breaks down the courses for us so it's easy to follow and the community of Piano with Jonny is AMAZING....

I'm looking forward this musical journey with PWJ will take me. Thanks Jonny for sharing with us your knowledge.

My college degree is in music education and piano was my major instrument. After graduating I was tired of it and didn’t play for 30+ years. Then I wandered back to playing the piano, but there was still another dimension missing. I started looking around online to expand my musical horizons, especially with improvisation. Some sites were very expensive. Some hadn’t updated their site in years. Some had too much of a focus on one musical style area. And then I found Piano with Jonny. Wow! What an amazing experience this has been. There are so many lessons, with more created each month, that I will be kept busy and challenged for years!! Not only am I starting to improvise, which was impossible for me, but I have found other musical styles that excite me. An added benefit of PWJ is the vibrant and active Facebook group. We share videos of our playing and interact with each other. Jonny is also there as our teacher providing positive feedback. Now I consider these members as friends. We’ve never met, but I hope to meet some of them when I’m traveling. Jonny has opened up a whole new piano-playing world for me! Thank you, Jonny, for what you do to inspire each of us. You are truly the best!!!

The video posting, feedback, and interaction with other students from all over the world is priceless. I have only been a member since April and I truly feel I have made incredible progress. This is a working community. We have work shops, monthly Q&A’s , daily tips, incredible website, and more. The website will provide beginners and pros with monthly challenges, downloadable backing tracks, lesson sheets, incredible arrangements, etc

Don’t miss out! Price to join for one year is what I would spend for 3 one hour lessons
Looking forward to getting to know all new members.

I have literally played the piano most of my 71 years and love all genres of music but could only play if I had the music in front of me.I have wanted to be able to just sit down and play anything without music and have it sound amazing, but I lacked the know how. I have looked at other online programs but they were really expensive and seemed complicated. Then the 10 Day Blues Challenge with Jonny came in my email in April of this year, 2019. I did it and was hooked; and the price to sign up was affordable. Jonny's teaching is clear and there are printouts to practice. I am motivated by the many courses and challenges he offers as well as the great community of musicians that post and give encouragement. I am learning how to play a variety of chords and scales and use them to improvise songs and make them sound amazing! The courses are geared to every level from beginning to advanced. Jonny and his team is highly interactive with each student. Jonny is the best! Thank you, Jonny!

I have a musical education, but have never played jazz music. Having discovered PWJ site for myself, I realized that this is the source that I have been looking for a long time. Jonny May is really a wonderful musician, teacher and organizer!
This is really a great platform for learning, because the site has a clear structure, on which all lessons are built and there is feedback. I am very happy to be part of the community, not to be a loner. I began to master blues with great pleasure. I try to regularly share my results with friends on our Facebook page. Gradually, I hope to master the other sections. I wish all of us inspiration and success! Thank you Jonny!!!

I highly recommend Piano With Jonny (PWJ). The main challenge that I had before becoming a member (student) of Piano With Jonny was recording and posting my practice sessions within the PWJ member community. I've been playing piano for 15+ years. However, since becoming a member (student) with Jonny my playing is improving on daily basis.
Jonny is an amazing teacher, and motivator. The Piano With Jonny community of members are very positive and supportive, and they always give encouraging feedback. If anyone is looking to improve their piano skills, or if you're new to the piano and looking to learn, this is definitely the place to be!

I highly recommend Piano With Jonny (PWJ). I've played piano from a young age, but one day, I wanted to take it to the next level. I didn't really know how or where to start. I did tons of research into online piano instruction (both free + paid) and even started taking lessons again. I signed up for PWJ, not really knowing what to expect and just to try it.

After being a member for some time, I can say without a doubt, PWJ is the BEST instruction around. It is one of the best investments in my musical education I've ever made.

PWJ offers lessons on many styles (jazz, pop, rock, blues, etc.), along with downloadable sheet music, backing tracks (to play along), and quality instruction from Jonny himself. Jonny continuously adds content and engages with members in a friendly and responsive way. Not only is PWJ content-rich, it is evident that Jonny truly loves teaching and helping others achieve their musical dreams. PWJ has helped me reach musical heights I honestly never thought possible! I can't recommend it enough.

I highly recommend Piano With Jonny. I have been playing piano for many years now. Since I was 7, I’ve had many teachers that tried to motivate me to practice daily, but most of my practice happened only during a lesson. Then when I was 15, I couldn’t stand it anymore and quit the lessons, thinking I could do it by myself. So I did it for a few years before other priorities took over. From then on I’ve played every now and then, but it wasn’t structured. A couple of years ago, I was asked to be in the already established band – they needed a piano player for a concert they were going to have in just one month. I decided that I must practice more and in need of a teacher that could motivate me and teach me something new to develop my skills further. I have played during that concert and became a permanent member of the band, but I still couldn't find the right teacher. So I’ve expanded my search and found Jonny May’s piano school. It took me a few months before I became a member, but I should have done it years ago, because I’ve learned so much in such a short time! I could choose exactly what I need to learn from all kind of different styles available in the course. In addition, Jonny May was personally available, despite having hundreds of students. Membership in PWJ also allows access to the forum with other piano players, who shared their experience and challenges. There is also question and answer section where I could get live answers to my questions. I have learned more during the last year in PWJ than in my previous 20 years of piano lessons. Most importantly, I stay motivated to learn more. I have learned some pieces by heart – something I thought I could never master. So just throw yourself into it – you won’t regret it. It is worth every penny!

I’ve taken piano lessons off and on for years, but none of the teachers has taught and inspired me more than Jonny May. I’ve been a happy PWJ member now for almost two years now. I originally discovered his work on YouTube, specifically, how to play a very impressive and fun Happy Birthday performance piece in 7 different styles, traditional, latin, swing, ragtime, etc. And I get to learn from the guy who played at Disneyland for 9 years! I KNEW this arrangement was far beyond my skill level, but Jonny’s videos broke down the fingering, the timing, the dynamics, and the notes so clearly, and with lots of encouragement, that I kept at it, and I can play it now! Along with Jonny’s instructional videos are support resources like “Musicnotes”, where you can see the sheet music, slow the tempo down, or transpose the key if you need to! A great help! I also love the fact that he makes himself available for LIVE Q&A sessions regularly, and he’s very responsive to his student’s questions and challenges online, I feel like I’ve definitely come to the right place to learn the style of piano I’ve always wanted to learn, and styles that I didn’t even know that I wanted to learn! Latin jazz is FUN!! Jazz, ragtime, blues, rock, improv… Jonny is a master at these styles, and lucky for us, he’s also a passionate, patient, encouraging teacher who clearly appreciates and loves to engage with all of his students. He has hundreds of hours of curated piano lessons for all playing levels and styles, and he’s created a passionate community of supportive members from all over the world. Come join us!

For a long time I was just teaching myself, and not doing a very good job at it. Then I moved overseas and didn't have access to a piano for over 11 years, just small keyboards, and during that time I progressively lost a lot of skill (though I didn't really know that until I was finally able to buy a piano and tried playing it!). I've had to go back to basics re-learning scales and other exercises to try and build up the skill, but I wasn't really going anywhere. So, I bit the bullet and bought a course from Piano With Jonny, and it was a revelation. I learned so much about improvising while rebuilding lost skill. I then bit the bullet again and bought a second course, and the wow-factor hit again. I loved every moment of doing the courses, and especially the frequent interactions with other students in the Facebook group. I loved it so much I bought into the 12 month membership.
I'm still working on finger agility, and rebuilding lost skills, but in much more interesting, fun and beneficial ways. I'm now learning swing with walking bass, and so much more. I've always enjoyed playing ragtime, but could only play what was written, but since doing the December monthly challenge I can now improvise with it, and improvise non-ragtime songs into ragtime. PWJ isn't just about learning to play the piano, it's about learning how to be creative, original, fresh. It's about sharing where you're at, no matter how good or bad you are, and knowing that you will only receive advice and massive encouragement in return. It's about building mutual supportive relationships with others in the online community.
Jonny's teaching style through the online platform is far better than anything else I've ever encountered, including face-to-face lessons, and I would strongly recommend that anyone give it a go.

As a guys that trained in classical piano from 6 years old until 18 I have continued to play in other arenas until now 58. I stumbled upon the blues challenge and really had a blast improving improvisation skills but most importantly HAVING FUN! It brought back some memories and techniques from jazz and improvisation lessons from years ago and it was very well taught. I decided to buy a membership to PWJ for a year and don’t know how much time I will be able to spend on it but feel like it will be well worth it. I will get out of it what I put into it. God bless PWJ!

I played the piano since I was 13 years old. Largely without guidance and tuition, I tried out a few teachers but we either didn‘t connect as they were classically trained and I only wanted to do, jazz, blues and rock’n’roll piano, or the money was too tight, or a combination of both, so the relationship never lasted long. I largely played what I had learnt in a course for electronic organs back in the seventies, chords in my left, melody in my right, and so I played for decades, having fun, enjoying myself but not making any headway musically. Then I discovered the internet and youtube, which was better than nothing, and I came across Jonny‘s youtube channel. I was instantly hooked but didn‘t sign up. Instead I spent a fortune with a piano teacher at my son‘s music school who either checked his whatsapp messages in our sessions or lamented about his ex-girlfriend. Meanwhile I kept contact with Jonny, and - surprise - although I was not a paying member at that time but only a youtube follower, I always got nice, positive replies within 24 hours, and I got hooked by his unique teaching style which exactly fitted my needs. Easily accessible well-structured lessons at my preferred practice time, no commuting to sessions with teachers, no last-minute cancellations, no being afraid about delayed trains, no waste of time, advice just a mouse-click away if needed, and he even told me when he would make temporary discounts available for new members.

It still took me about two years for finally signing up, and all I can say is I fail to comprehend why it took me so long, but I‘m so glad I finally did. Jonny and his team were extremely helpful with setting me up on the system as we had to master a few technical problems, and when I finally got access to the full curriculum I was blown away by the mass of well laid-out courses now available to me. And on top comes this wonderful PWJ members facebook group which instantly became my virtual musical family. When I posted my first video I was literally sh****ing my pants, and I was overwhelmed by the positive, heartwarming and constructive feedback I received. The group creates a positive atmosphere where everybody is willing to grow and to share which really sucked me in, and this gave me a tremendous motivational boost.

I have played more piano in the last three months since I joined PWJ than in the decade before, and everybody in my environment keeps telling me that I get better and better. Jonny is always there to help with questions about the courses or certain technique-related questions, he gives fantastic feedback (don‘t know when the man sleeps) to every video I post, he is always available on FB messenger, he does fantastic monthly live Q&A sessions and Live Workshops on Facebook which are now like family gatherings, and he puts out great monthly challenges and new courses all the time.

Being a lawyer by profession, I am normally not overly emotional in my communication but I have to say it, I simply love this man. He brought so much good to my musical life, he really turned it around completely, and he did what nobody did before - he made me proud of what I have achieved so far, and he made me looking so much forward to my musical journey with him and the PWJ members. Thanks Jonny, glad to know you!

Hi, I’m a new member. I joined last week after taking the Blues Challenge. I want to tell you that I am very happy I became a member. I returned to the piano about 4 years ago after a long hiatus and had been relying on youtube instructional videos and band workshops to learn. I found the youtube videos helpful but your lessons as a member of piano with Jonny are much better because they are structured in such a way that they really lock in the concepts and skills needed to be able to play many styles, transpose, improvise and really get comfortable with the instrument. Each lesson has building blocks that take you the next step and since they are presented in bite size pieces you don’t feel overwhelmed. I have already completed your blues and jazz challenges studied Sugar Cubes, and Funk. I need a lot of practice to get them perfect but can take the concepts and apply them to my playing right away. Your program is quickly filling a lot of gaps in my knowledge. Receiving your email today with yet another lesson prompted me to write this testimonial for you today. I really appreciate your dedication and willingness to share new things so often to keep us motivated. For anyone on the fence about becoming a member I can tell you this is well worth it. Thank You Jonny May!
A smile,
Liz

I studied classical piano at a conservatory for 5 years and was pretty well rounded pianist when I left. But, I wanted to learn to play jazz and improvise. I got stuck and plateaued.

Jonny and his team have scratched that itch and my skills have grown substantially. I’m amazed by the progress shown by his other students, from beginners through professionals.

The content really is top notch, and Jonny is always adding new stuff.

Before I discovered Piano With Jonny I spent quite some time trying to find the proper piano teacher online, and I struggled learning their teaching styles and staying motivated. Ever since I joined PWJ I have been able to learn the main foundations, different piano styles, and have raised my playing-level of difficulty. Also, being part of such a supportive and fun PWJ community is incredible, I am truly thankful for Jonny's interaction and dedication with his students. It is not usual to find a piano teacher with such great teaching skills and knowledge, I now understand why Disneyland Park hired Jonny years ago as the youngest piano performer...forever grateful I have landed on Jonny's land :)

What makes Piano With Jonny so special?
1. The Coach - Jonny explains difficult techniques in a very simple and easy to understand way. There's sheet music for those that like to read music, and there's a clear visual of the keys and proper fingers if you like to play by watching.

2. Types of Music/Quality of Material - Ragtime, Jazz, Blues, Contemporary, and you get to move at your own pace.

3. Amazing support group on Facebook - Pianists need encouragement, or they have more questions that can be answered by fellow students that have worked on the same song.

4. Q&A support/liveworkshops - You really get to interact with Jonny! That's pretty special. 😃

I hadn't sat down at a piano for 50 years until last year. Found Jonny's site, became a member and off and running. He teaches all levels of instruction. You can start, restart the videos, learn at your own pace. You can learn theory or songs or both. If you want to play the piano and add enjoyment to your life, this is the site.

Hello everyone,

Since I suscribed on the website, I've been learning a tone of things. Thank you Jonny for teaching us all these piano styles. It is such a pleasure to work on your lessons everyday. Before joining the community, I wondered several times where to find well-structured jazz, rock, boogie lessons and it seems I've found you 😄. Thank you all for your precious advice and kind words.
From France with love ❤

Prior to starting with Piano with Jonny I had looked all over at online Piano instruction. I was so overwhelmed with the amount of info I didn’t know where to start or what to work on. There was no clear path.

Jonny teaches songs. True story. More importantly though Johnny teaches you theory and why something works and how something works so you can apply it to other songs and styles you want to play.

Lastly- Jonny is engaged. He is always around and is quick to answer questions about a course or an issue you are having. He cares about the students.

It also helps that Jonny is fun! Listen to the man play- how. An you not be inspired?

My piano had been sitting idle for years....and before that I didn't bother to invest in a piano.

Lacked inspiration, and was frustrated and stuck. Seemed like too high a hill to climb to learn things like the blues or jazz....anything I played wasn't enjoyable after listening to the great piano players. Jazz music and improv exposes your level in a big way, and it caused me to stop trying and focus on other fun pursuits.

Then I heard one of Jonny's performances on YouTube....and got curious. Written arrangements got me interested to dip my toe in the water again. Then I was exposed to short skill-based challenges that served as the building blocks of many of the different genres of piano music. Improvising lines started to become fun, even though I was essentially just starting from scratch again.

I'm a new student here and love Jonny's passion and talent specifically in breaking down all kinds of music into small, digestible parts. It makes the goals seem achievable. I've had jazz teachers in the past who were masterful players but couldn't articulate what they were doing, or how they put it together. So a lot of it felt disjointed and piecemeal, or simply went over my head. Love how Jonny blends classical training with the world of improv piano music and theory. There's a lot of depth there and a patience to both pull up to explain concepts from a 10k feet view, as well as get nitty gritty at the molecular level of piano playing. I also love how Jonny's materials teach you to become both a solo piano player as well as a part of a multi-piece combo.

Stylistically I love how Jonny plays, arranges, writes, and interprets. Pure entertainment...virtuosic and complex enough but not too esoteric at the risk of alienating people.
Love the passion, love the positivity, and the care Jonny brings to his work. It's definitely a genuine labor of love!

Looking forward to learning more from Jonny as well as my fellow classmates.....!!!

There are so many choices when it comes to learning music now:

You could try to find a local teacher, but it's really hard to know what you're going to get. Will you get along, will you do your practice in time for the next lesson, will you be able to learn styles that motivate and challenge you?

You could find a whole bunch of random lessons all overt the internet, but will there be enough structure for you to understand and progress?

Piano with Jonny presents a great hybrid model. You can watch Jonny on YouTube and know that you'll love the styles he plays (and teaches). You can take the lessons at your own pace, but if you commit to uploading one video of your practice each week, you'll have the same accountability as you get from going to private lessons. It doesn't take long to learn Jonny is one of the nicest guys around and loves teaching. The community is super active - Jonny's always answering questions and giving great feedback. Everyone else is super-supportive too.

All of the lessons are structured into pathways based on style (swing, latin jazz, blues etc.), or in the fundamentals group (keys, scales etc.). When new content is added, it gets put in the right pathway and at the right level so it's easy to know what's coming next.

I like the teaching style. There's sheet music if you want it, but with video, you can learn by watching and trying. Jonny is determined to teach people the tools necessary for improvising! We learn by starting with a "lead sheet" - it's just the notes you would hum and all of the chords. Then we build the piece up with great techniques in the left and right hands for a rich sound. We're not just learning to play the piano, we're learning to be musical!

I'm looking forward to learning to play solos and improvise with confidence. I'm sure Piano with Jonny will help me get there.

Before Piano With Jonny I was really stuck as a musician. I was bored with what I was playing and felt very limited. I understood theory but not how to apply it. I now know how to voice interesting and beautiful chords and apply them to standards and originals. This has been especially helpful to me as a vocalist who accompanies herself.

I am also gaining a much broader understanding of styles and how to get certain sounds and grooves.

In my year and half of being a member, I have grown more than I ever through possible. I now have about 30 songs in my repertoire (and counting) and I am able to play one hour gigs on my own. I am writing more than ever too.

Jonny is not only an amazing musician, he is a gifted teacher. Those two gifts don't always go together. I am also a teacher and it has been fun to apply what I learn with Jonny with my students.

Jonny's is actively involved in the community. Yannick is as well. Their constant encouragement and feedback is incredibly meaningful. I also find the encouragement and feedback from fellow PWJ members makes this a very special place to learn and grow.

There are so many lessons available to us as members and Jonny is always creating more. The monthly challenges, quick tips and live sessions are amazing. I have to remind myself to focus because there is truly so much offered. Such a huge return on a small financial investment.

I will end by saying that the deeper I go with this work the more I learn about myself. It isn't always easy studying at this level. I am noticing that my commitment is starting to pay off and my learning is accelerating. I still hit plateaus but with each one I'm able say..."Ah! I've been hear before and persevered to the other side. It was so worth it. Remember how far you have come. Keep going!"

Piano With Jonny has changed my life. Thank you!

I first saw YouTube videos of Jonny playing, and was amazed at his skill and talent, so, after looking on his website, I decided to take the option of a free trial membership. I quickly realised that this was for me, and took the up full membership.
The tuition system at PWJ is ideal for me, as a relative beginner, everything is well explained in the video, and there is downloadable sheet music for music readers, and also backing tracks. Each lesson progresses in stages, so that an intermediate player, or an advanced player can start part way through, and yet a beginner going from the start can sound good quickly.
I played guitar and bass in groups as a teenager, and bought a piano and taught myself to play a few basic chords.
When I retired from work I decided to learn to play properly, and now, at the age of 75, this is my only hobby, and I love it. I am improving gradually, and, due to being asked to record myself and post videos to the members Facebook page, I have received lots of encouragement from people all over the world. I can also look back at them and see how I have improved, and that gives me great satisfaction.
I would tell anyone who is interested in learning to play the piano, this is without doubt the best place to learn. Thank you, Jonny May, for the hours of pleasure Piano With Jonny has given me.

I’m so glad I found Piano With Jonny! I started playing piano at age 7 and was classically trained. Through the years, I started playing less and less and really lost that love of playing that I had when I was younger! I first signed up for the free trial not knowing what to expect. After a day of working through a course on the website, I emailed Yannick at PWJ and asked if I could bypass the free trial period and get access to the full membership right away. I was really hooked from the beginning.

I remember posting my first video on the PWJ community Facebook page and being really nervous. I’m not the kind of person who likes to put himself out there and definitely not post videos of myself. After that first video, I got such great feedback from Jonny and the other members, that a spark had been ignited. Getting such wonderful encouragement from the PWJ community, gave me such a boost of confidence that I started practicing more and posting more. It’s cool to look back at all of the videos that I’ve posted on the PWJ FB page over the last couple of years. It’s like having a diary of my progress.

I love the way Jonny teaches and breaks down his lessons. He starts with basic concepts and then expands on those concepts. I have learned how to play so many great styles that used to be so foreign to me as a classically trained pianist. Besides all of the great lessons on the website, there is a monthly challenge which is one of my favorite things. Basically, every month you learn a different style or song, and it’s broken up into 4 weekly videos. The videos are so easy to follow and each video builds upon the previous video. By the 4th video you’re playing a complete song or have learned a new style.

Besides Jonny’s teaching style, the thing I love most is having this online PWJ community. This community, which feels like a family, is so supportive and friendly. We all have a common goal, to become better pianists. When we surround ourselves with like minded people who encourage us, we tend to grow the most. I think this online community is one of the things that sets PWJ apart from other online courses. For me, Jonny’s teaching style mixed with his videos, live workshops, monthly challenges, and topped with the support of the online community, makes PWJ a formula for success. I look forward to continue learning and growing as a pianists for many years to come with PWJ!

As a 55-year-old, who has been playing the piano for 42 years, who has had five private piano teachers over the years, who has also in the past been a student of several other on-line piano courses, I can honestly say that joining and becoming a member of PianoWithJonny has by far been the best thing I have ever done to improve my skills at the piano. Jonny is extremely dedicated to his online students and he provides very detailed lessons, in so many musical styles, that greatly benefit students at all levels, beginner through advanced. Jonny and his on-line students are also very motivating and very kind, as seen through the countless posts and comments on the PWJ Facebook page. You absolutely will feel like you a family member at PWJ. Under PWJ my piano skills have greatly improved and I couldn't be happier. The only regret I have was not finding and joining PWJ sooner. Sincerely, Joel Renk

I've been a member for a year and a half, and from the VERY first interaction with Jonny and the community, I was addicted. Some say hooked, some say drawn in, I say addicted. It's an ongoing community, we communicate almost every day out of the year and for me at least, everyone has been like family, simply put. That really is what sets PWJ apart from anything else, and the welcome dance we give. We love to see all the new members come in and post their videos, or ask questions that pertain to music. That's literally what we all look forword to. It's a learning platform that just keeps growing and growing. It's insane, it really is.
The biggest problem at least for me was the fact that I was banging my head against the same spot on the same wall repeatedly, over and over, day after day- not going anywhere. It didn't matter what song I learned or how I sounded, I just didn't have the know how to go about getting my songs heard. It wasn't untill about the first few weeks in that Jonny- the KING himself said to me to take baby steps, to realize that the only way to grow was to push yourself to do more than you thought you could, and the more you can push yourself out of your comfort zone, the more comfortable you will be out in public. And so far it's been proven to work. Let's talk about motivation- I used to have it- it was SKY high, but lost it somewhere along the way. It all came to a boiling point though when I first realized what this thing was all about. It was HUGE. And I kept saying to the other members how huge it was, and I was like dumbfounded at the fact that- in this day and age, why this has not been adopted yet. Who woulda thought, online lessons? Take it at your own pace and making it work for you... You no longer had to have a plan for the upcoming week or two untill you next at home lesson? I mean it was a no-brainer. Brilliance at it's BEST! And, the most exciting part isn't what it offers, it's who's running it. I mean who doesn't like disneyland, right? I'm like a 12 year old kid, I swear to god I am, when I take an online lesson on a different style or to learn a different disney song. I just love it here, it's like family- maybe I mentioned it already, but it's true.
With all the material that's been going up every month and the time you spend on it learning it, and the way he maps it out for you, you will just see what I mean. It's like it's magic. There's just way too much work to be done. At one point i was working on like 3 songs plus learning a different style as well as building my technique, which is one of the reasons why I think this is the real deal! There are so many other piano sites out there, and if you asked me, noone can compare. I don't care if you used to play in disneyland and ended up being an uber driver and your looking for other ways to improve your playing. This is IT baby, all in a nutshell.
Since I’ve been an active member- I have moved mountains and leaped the tallest buildings. All because of jonny and his unique teaching style- of how to bring the best YOU out! There is just so much going on right here, that it's literally growing as we speak!
And last but not least, you get out of it what you put into it... and trust me, if u want to get THE most out of ur time spent learning from Jonny, YOU need to put 100% in every little thing that you do!🔥🔥🔥🔥💪🔥🔥🔥🔥

A couple years ago, I sincerely thought I had a great fundamental understanding of the piano. If I tried my best, I could mimic any arrangement and play it well. After signing up for Piano With Jonny, I realized just how wrong I was about my skillset.

Not only did Piano With Jonny introduce me to new piano styles (Jazz, Stride, Ragtime, Blues, etc), it also helped me with something I never thought I'd be able to do - understand what I play instead of just following the sheet music.

Every course comes with a roadmap that builds upon one another to ensure you truly understand what you're learning. There are beginner, intermediate, and advanced topics for everyone! If I'm ever stuck on something, all I have to do is ask Jonny directly. He's extremely responsive and will go out of his way to make sure your questions are answered - he is the best teacher.

Every month, Jonny likes to give us a "challenge" in a different genre. One month you'll learn a Jazz Christmas arrangement, the next you'll work on improvising over a Blues pattern, then move onto a beautiful Contemporary arrangement, etc. Each one of these challenges, along with live-streamed workshops, gives you the building blocks to take any song and play it in any style imaginable.

One of the best parts of Piano With Jonny is the community Jonny has created. We are encouraged to post progress videos of whatever we're working on, and with that comes some of the most motivating, encouraging feedback one can imagine from this passionate community. I honestly wouldn't be anywhere near as excited to practice piano if it wasn't for them.

This program as a whole is fantastic, and I highly encourage anyone to sign up and join our passion.
