  • I took the 2 first lessons the same day. (I didn't remember I subscribe! ☺).
    I get a little problem: my old piano needs to be tuned (and mended, surely!) - but no money..). So it's a little bit hard to play the "high" C.; and so, hard to play regularly. I can practise anyway! Thanks a lot again!

  • Thank you roe the second lesson. I learned to focus more one touch & tone. Looking forward to lesson #3

  • I learned to focus more on touch & tone. Looking forward to 3rd lesson. Thank uou

  • Thank you so much, Thomas!
    You teach us perfectly with all the possible wrong finger moves we could make and should avoid.

    Yes, its fun just taking in the technique
    How much more would it be playing it on the key board.
    Looks forward to the next .Yes I did get lesson 3 where you introduce the chords .Shall go back and see it again
    Take care.

  • Thank you much ,Thomas.
    I did get all the instructions to play smooth, the c major seven keys!

  • I've never had a piano lesson in my life but went straight to playing difficult songs such as "the river flows in you" which I have almost mastered so I decided to try the basics to improve my skills even if I do know the notes and I feel like I'm being slow I still practice all the basic stuff every day.

  • Thank you so much for this lesson I am looking forward for the next piano lesson. 🙂

  • Hi Thomas! Your music lessons have boosted me to a level I never thought I'd reach, even though I'm only on the second one. I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you, because I'd have never been this good being self-taught. Thanks again!

  • Thank you so much for lesson 2.

  • Thank you so much Thomas - I am totally loving your method of piano teaching - it is fun, clear/concise and has quick results. I can't wait to get home from work and pick up from where I left off with your teaching. I loved you five part Fur Elise - so easy to follow and the practice has been a pure joy! I live in Bath in the UK and am delighted to hav found you on youtube all the way from Cologne! I am now enjoying your crash course with the view of buying your courses. Though please can you help I have had lesson 1, 2 and 4 of the crash course but not 3 - please can you send it through to me??? Thank you for your amazing piano teaching method , your energy and motivation. Best wishes. Lisa

  • Hi Thomas!
    I learned how to play I'm Blue - Eiffel 65 as well as Fur Elise in a few days. Are these tutorials for me? they seem a bit simple(I started playing the piano two weeks ago, so I can't read notes yet).

    Kind Regards

  • Hi,

    I just purchased my Piano Komplete off of Facebook, was charged on my card but DID NOT received the link to start my lessons 🙁 Perhaps the link was sent to the wrong email address?? Hoping to get help with this ASAP as I have paid and want to start learning piano right away. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

  • Shokhrukh says:

    Hi Mr Thomas.
    I find it very fantastic way to learn playing piano from your website. I really appreciate you and your website. Every content is concise.
    But one problem is I have no piano yet nevertheless I am trying on keyboard from my laptop is it beneficial or not.
    And my main ambition is to play the “Amelie” song. In How many I can learn it?
    I look forward to hearing from mr Thomas.

  • Mary Ann Mangahoc says:

    Many thanks Thomas for sharing your knowledge and expertise in playing piano. My late Dad is a pianist too but unfortunately never got the chance to teach me, as I grew up with my grandparents far from my parents. I'd like the way you teach us coz it is very precise and clear. Looking forward to our next lesson.

  • Hi Thomas, Thank you for the course! I'm Will based in mainland China. I have a light problem that it takes me years to load the video that you send no matter with or without VPN. And I'm sure there is no problem with my network. Is there any other way I can get access to the video? Thank you!

  • Paul Cochran says:

  • Finished lesson 2!! Thank you so much for all your hard work & time you’ve put into these lessons - it is so much appreciated!
    Question: Is the C major scale considered to be made up of 7 notes or 8?

  • same day I smashed day 1 and day 2 really catching fun with this lessons... catch up with the next lesson soon.. THUMBS UP Thomas

  • Hi Thomas,I'm on my second free lesson.I am I I interested in your technique. Your approach is bite size that I can follow and practice on without being buried under all the technicalities of how to play a piano.I know I gave to learn those eventually but it helps to learn on the simple steps first to help us struggling beginners .You take your time and with repetition, it really help" us beginners " understand hand placement while trying to concurrently memorize the appropriate notes.We do appreciate your dedication to teach and share your skills.I am older and have problems with my hand flexibility, coordination and endurance so I usually quit before I finish the lessons I have taken before. I also have Carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands so my hands starts tingling then it gets numb in 15 mins of constant practice. With your lesson, I was able to take short breaks and go back if I have time.I would love to finish all your free lessons first before I formally subscribe. I have bad habits of subscribing to a program then being lazy to follow thru which is a waste of money.I work in another city for 8 hours plus 2 hours total drive home daily ,just drain me out at night so I 'am just being honest as far as time commitment..I sincerely Thank you again!

  • Shannon Moreino says:

    New on board, already inspired. Thank you Thomas, you are a light in these difficult times.

  • Thanks for todays lesson. Looking forward for tje 3rd one.

  • Thomas
    I am on board and looking forward in learning more with your lesson.

  • Thomas
    Thanks for your reply. I really like your teaching approach and I am learning a lot.
    I have some Questions....
    1- The Piano package program that you are offering for $96 does it includes hard copy books?
    2- If yes , what are some of the song included in your program?
    3- How do you provide the piano lessons, is it through your website or videos ?
    4- Do you teach how to read music notes and play the piano at the same time?
    5- The VIP card, is that unlimited?
    Hope to hear from you soon!

  • Thank you Thomas for my second lesson I appreciate that& God bless you.

  • Thanks for this tutorial.. I'm really glad to be here

  • Christallin Johnson-Smith says:

    I really enjoyed the extra slow pace you took with this C Major scale. I took piano lessons for many years as a child but I stipped at about age 18. I'm 59 now and relearning everything. I am relearning how to read music, I remember a lot; but I also enjoy your method. The way you went so slowly was excellent. It's important to develop proper form and memory. I found this repetitive emphasis very helpful . Thank you and God bless you Thomas.

  • Ravi Shankar says:

    Hi Thomas,

    Hey, thanks a million for your lessons.

    Got me on my musical journey and aint i glad for you.


  • Hey Thomas,
    How do I practice to make my left hand as strong. As the right hand

  • Seriously I'm really glad that I found a teacher like u and without paying ❤my parents will never allow me to go out n learn but bcz of u I can learn sir a big thnkuu from india ❤

  • Scott Everett says:

    Hi Thomas ... thanks for the lessons. I really like how you break everything down and repeat the steps over and over and slow it down. Practice makes Perfect, right?! - Keep up the good work!

  • I have trouble with my ring finger it doesn’t stay up when Ido my first lesson.what can I do?

  • Ishaan Kumar says:

    Hi Thomas
    It’s me Ishaan Kumar
    I really enjoy your lessons . Thank u so much

  • Why do we start at C and not at A? Illogical, bugged me since I was a child and part reason I abandoned music as teacher never avle to explain.

  • David Forrester says:

    Considering a subscription

  • Thank you for my second lesson today and the encouragement to play all of the notes with the same pressure. I am using an inexpensive keyboard (have to see if I can to this before purchasing a real piano), and all of the notes sound like the same pressure with little difference if I push hard or not so hard. Is this just normal with keyboards? :>) Janice

  • Vaibhav Sati says:

    The course video is very good sir thank you for this awesome video


  • Thank you so much for today, now I keep practicing to get smooth sound..

    • Dear Sartiman,

      Fantastic! Keep practicing and soon you'll see great improvements. Remember, the path to mastering the piano is all about patience and consistency. I'm here to guide you every step of the way, so keep up the good work and keep enjoying the process.

      Best wishes,

  • I really enjoyed my 2nd lesson cant wait for tomorrow thank you

    • Dear Veda,

      I'm thrilled to hear you're enjoying the lessons and eager to continue! Your enthusiasm and dedication are the driving forces behind your progress. Keep up the excellent work and remember to take your time to understand and practice each lesson before moving onto the next. Looking forward to hearing about your progress!

      Warm Regards,

  • Great lessons, Thomas! As always I love your teaching method and style. Fantastic for a beginner like myself.

    • Dear Danielle,

      Thank you for your kind words! It's wonderful to hear that you're finding the lessons helpful and that the teaching style resonates with you. Remember, every great pianist started as a beginner, and your enthusiasm is a key part of the journey. Keep practicing, and never hesitate to reach out if you have questions or need additional guidance.

      Best wishes,

  • Great piano lessons thank you.

  • Hi! I love you way of teaching.

    • Thank you Patrick! Gald to hear that 🙂

  • Robert Godwin says:

    I enjoyed your first two lessons. I can play the C scale (one octave) and then I like to swing it. Also I find to strengthen finger 5 I play thumb-1-2-4-5 up and down starting on C and then repeat starting on D and so on up the piano. Note: finger 3 is missing (ha ha).

    I am looking forward to your next lesson. Recently I wrote out ten C chords and then C# chords followed by D and so on up to C. By doing this, if the two Cs were different I knew I had made a mistake.

    • Dear Robert,

      It sounds like you're really immersing yourself in the learning process and it's great to see such enthusiasm. Your technique for strengthening your 5th finger is innovative and swinging the C scale adds a nice touch. I'm also glad to hear that you're finding value in writing out chords. This method is indeed a great way to test your understanding.

      I appreciate your eagerness to move forward, and I'm looking forward to sharing the next lesson with you. Keep up the good work!


  • Thank you very much for your useful lesson.

    Le Kim Ngan

    • Dear Le Kim Ngan,

      Thank you for your kind words. It's wonderful to hear that you found the lesson useful! I'm here to support you on your piano journey and am looking forward to sharing more lessons with you.


  • Elizabeth Sherk says:

    I enjoyed your presentation of C major scale with seven tones out of which innumerable melodies can be composed or improvised. I wonder whether you have considered suggesting that practicers SING
    those seven pitches up and down, not just speak them. I love the instruction that 100 repetitions of even toned playing of the 7 notes with the fingers of the R H., 1,2,3,1,2,3,4,5 does not take very long, but is essential to mastering Lesson number 2. I look forward to lesson #3.

    • Hello Elizabeth,

      Thank you for your insightful comment and suggestion about incorporating singing into the practice. Music, after all, is about engaging all our senses, and singing could indeed enhance the learning experience. I will definitely consider your idea for future lessons.

      I'm glad to hear you found the focus on repetitions helpful. You're absolutely correct; consistency is key in mastering any musical skill.

      I look forward to continuing this journey with you in lesson #3.


  • Hi Teacher,
    Thank you very much for lesson 2.
    I look forward to lesson 3.

    • Dear Dim,

      I'm thrilled to hear you've enjoyed lesson 2 and are eager to continue your learning journey with lesson 3. Your enthusiasm is infectious! Remember, take your time and enjoy the process of learning. If you ever have any questions or need clarification on anything, don't hesitate to ask.


  • Jane Flournoy says:

    Mr. Forschbach

    This piano lesson is almost exactly what I needed! I know the notes and their names, but this helped me remember them a little better. Thanks!

    • Dear Jane,

      I'm delighted to hear that the lessons are helping you solidify your understanding of the notes and their names! It's essential to have a good grasp of these fundamentals as you continue on your musical journey. Keep up the fantastic work, and remember, practice makes perfect! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'm here to assist you.


  • Arnold Taylor says:

    Hi Thomas,
    I just finished watching my second lesson and I couldn’t be more pleased.
    Now I understand why you say with your teaching method you will progress so much faster. Yes I want to learn to play songs but I would rather learn how to play the piano first.
    Thank you for the opportunity.

    • Dear Arnold,

      I'm thrilled to hear you're finding value in my lessons and understanding the rationale behind the teaching method. I firmly believe in giving students a strong foundation, so they can not only play songs but also understand the instrument and music on a deeper level. Keep up the great work, and never hesitate to reach out if you need any assistance along the way. Your journey is just beginning, and I'm excited to be a part of it.


  • Thank you for opening up my world. I played piano years ago, but discontinued for raising my children. Wasn’t sure how much I remembered until I started on the 2nd lesson. My piano key board came to me yesterday and I am very excited once again. Lesson 1 and 2 was picked up very quickly but will practice, practice and practice some more for the smooth technique that I’m a little rusty on. Oh, my name is Margie and I live in Oregon U.S.A.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Margie,

      Welcome back to the world of piano, and thank you for sharing your excitement with us! It's truly heartwarming to hear that my lessons have rekindled your passion for music. Your dedication and enthusiasm are inspiring, and I'm confident that with practice, you'll regain and even surpass your previous skills.

      Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need assistance along the way. Happy practicing, and welcome once again from all of us here!

      Best wishes to Oregon,

  • Heyy!
    Im really surprised how much fun it is to practice the steps, even tho I master them so quickly and am pretty impatient waiting to the next day for a new practice ^^" I love this method! And it makes so much sense, I even try to do it blindly as a challenge and it works pretty well too! Thank you for doing this, you make so many people happy

    • Thomas Forschbach says:


      Hi Leandra!

      I'm absolutely thrilled to hear that you're enjoying the practice steps and finding success with the method!
