Today's the day 🙂 We'll finish our song. Playing both hands together is always a challenge. But you will make it.

Take your time!

Best,

  • How many hours a day should a beginner practice? This is very new to me and I am loving what I am learning. Thank you so much for your patient teaching.

    Thanks so much!,

  • Thanks Tomas!
    What is the name of the song we are learning? I am really enjoying your lessons.

  • kushang nagardhankar says:

    I can play song but I have problem playing with the both hands

  • Michelle Roth says:

    I haven't of quite mastered left and right hand together but I will keep trying, Thank you for this method of teaching piano

  • Anthony Sanchez says:

    This turned out to be a real nice sounding song. You taught it well. I think this would make for a great practice exercise both to learn chords and hand coordination.

  • Thomas,

    You are 100% correct in correlating the brain function to learning the piano. The is exactly why I am taking keyboard lessons, besides the musical related awards. A book called "Soft-Wired" by Dr. Michael Merzenich, PhD states how the new science of Brain Plasticity can change your life. This book is well worth reading. Now to get back to Lesson 7. I will need to replay it numerous times to gather all your instructions using both hands. Thanks again.

    Richard

  • Shiela R Bailey says:

    I absolutely love the way you teach. I never knew I could learn to play. It has always been a dream for me. Thank you so much. When I listen to you play my eyes tear up because I can feel so much emotions .

    Anshika:)

  • Dear Proffesor,

    thank you very much for wonderful lessons.

    I am rather an old man, I finished music lessons in my early youth at the Schumann - Fröhlicher Landmann von der Arbeit zurückkebrend. I like to play and I try to improve the performance a little, to guide the phrase, not to mention the polyphony.

    I observed the Professor's lessons to play "FÜR ELISE" on the Piano Tutorial
    and I am delighted with them.

    I send my cordial greetings to Professor.
    Sincerely
    R. Wojnar

  • Tony P{edroza says:

    Hello Thomas, Thanks for the lessons they are great....and easy to understand. Getting the coordination between the left and right hand is a bit of a challenge but i am making great progress in only a few days.... so i am motivated to keep going..

    Thanks again

    Tony

  • Sir Thomas,

    I just started the lesson 7 it's really slow for me but I am very willing to learn and do more practice, but I don't have the lesson 6 so I am looking forward to see on my email.

    Thank you,
    Theresa

  • I'm doing a considerable progress. Slow but just doing fine. Thank you

  • Thanks Thomas. I am enjoying your lessons. A little slow with stiff fingers but I am getting there.

  • Thanks sir for helping thousands of people and also me. from 7 months I was just stuck on the right ✋ now I am really very happy that I can play with both hands thanks I search at so many channels but I never understand there methods but know I can play with both hands

  • Thanks you for your lessons. It may look easy. In theorie i already know much more. But making the two righthandnotes sound like one takes a lot of practice, aspecialy for me as a lefthanded person.

  • Hi Thomas
    I am French speaking. What seems difficult to me here is the lack of a "road map". Usually when I start a new song with my favourite instrument, guitar, I analyze it to define its structure, its flow. I draw it like an architect's plan. Your approach is very new and innovative since it is more focused to auditive and muscular memory. Till now it is working well but i feel compelled to add some written comments.
    Your teaching method is a very interesting experiment. Thanks a lot!

  • I am 62 years old and just started playing the piano and have been practicing for only 2 weeks. I am making progress and contribute this to your lessons. I'm so happy I found you and subscribed to your website and purchased one of your programs.....Thank you!!!!

  • Christine says:

    Hi Thomas,

    I really look forward to your emails and wonderful lessons . Todays Lesson 7 arrived with no visual of the piano keys, only voice.
    Could you please re-send it for me.

    Thank you
    best regards
    Christine

  • Christine says:

    HI Thomas

    Appologies. The visual finally came through. My battery was low. Sorry.

    But I am now thoroughly enjoying Lesson 7 !

    Christine

  • Jan Burgess says:

    I have been sick, but getting better. I am only up to lesson 4 but loving the course.

  • Lola Dumpasan says:

    Hi Thomas,
    I am having fun,!. I can play "Silent Night" now. I am with you from lesson 5 to 7. It's fun. Thank you.
    Lolita

  • Hi Thomas, I’m glad I signed up for this tutorial lesson. I’ve been thinking of learning to play piano since I was younger. I’m now in my 70’s & I’m loving learning how to play piano now. I was excited to learn my first Christmas song, Silent Night, & trying to familiarize with the keys. Thank you.

  • Thank you so much!
    You are awesome, I did not know anything about playing a piano, thanks to you I can play a piano and I am so happy!
    My dream comes true!

  • I didn’t receive lesson 6. Could someone please send me the link. Thanks

  • Saksham Khalkho says:

    Thanks ,loving it
    Can't wait for next lesson

  • Hi Thomas,

    I love your lessons a lot. Even though I am totally a beginner but I am able to play this song and River flows in you (your YouTube tutorials) as well. I love that with you I can learn the song that i love to hear and play at the very early stage of learning.

    Could you please make tutorials for Pride and Prejudice (2005) soundtracks? “Dawn” and “Liz on top of the world” are my favorite! I know these are more at intermediate level. On YouTube there are some tutorials for these as well but none of them has your kind and easy to follow style of teaching.

    Love your lessons!
    Annie

  • Roger Attard says:

    Hello Thomas. I have a question for you. In lesson 5 when start playing the C chord you start on the middle C or the next C higher(to the right side) Thanks.

  • Really enjoying it Thomas. I have played before but not really made the progress I would have liked being taught in the traditional way. Your method so far seems to be more productive to me. Looking forward to Lesson 8. All the best.

  • Hi Thomas I am starting to get it.
    Can’t wait for the next lesson!!!!!

  • Paul Coveney says:

    Hi Thomas. thanks for that lesson it is a beautiful song & I’m really looking forward to playing it Perfectly (but I think it will take me a lot of practice ) .. the only thing is it doesn’t seem to use the method you taught in lesson 5 ? was this an excercise to get us to help with lesson 6 ? ?
    Many thanks
    Paul

  • It’s so nice ! I really like it!Thanks a lot!

  • This way of learning play the piano is so great!Thanks a million!

  • Many thanks.
    I am enjoying your lessons

  • David Forrester says:

    Hi Thomas, I trust your well. I am trying to do your lesson 6 playing the chords in 2 parts. The problem I seem to be having is my finger 4 fouls the key.Example, when playing ‘C’ chord I play C on its own with thumb and then the EG keys together with middle finger and pinky but finger 4 fouls the F key. Any tips to avoid this? Is it just perseverance until I stop hitting the key with my finger 4. Did you have this problem in the early days? Is this a common problem or is it just me? I am no spring chicken at 61 but should be able to achieve this If it is just sold practice to learn to keep finger 4 out of the way! I have very good new piano, ( Yamaha CSP 170) , and have been learning now for around 6 months . Looking forward to your honest advice. David Forrester

      • I have the same issue. I hope Thomas can show us a way to fix this issue. Finger is really tough right now. LOL!!

        • Thomas Forschbach says:

          Hello Ricardo, no worries you are not alone! Indeed this is a common issue happening with nearly all beginners. I started like this as well. Give it some time and you will see how practicing pays off. It will fade like magic… 🙂

    Hi Thomas, I am 64 year old male and started playing the piano in May 2020. I am registered with another online teacher and thoroughly enjoy his method but a little more advanced. I am a bit slow at getting the hang of things. Your method is more hands on and broken up in smaller parts, I feel this is my learning method and gives me more confidence to continue. Thank you for your program and look forward to learning and playing beautiful music.

    Can you direct me to them now so I can learn how to play beautiful music

  • Gillian Cleverly says:

    Hi Thomas I have been learning the keyboard since February this year but your lessons are amazing. The correct fingerings and thumb tucking is great I am a bit slow but getting further each time. Thank you so much you are an amazing teacher very clear and good explanation for each movement. Not too sure about 2 hands together, fingers are sore from practice but I love it. Thank you.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Gillian,

      Thank you for the wonderful feedback! It's truly rewarding to hear that my lessons have been beneficial for you. Remember, every learner progresses at their own pace, and the dedication you're showing is commendable. Playing with both hands can indeed be challenging, but with persistence, you'll master it. Continue to enjoy your practice, and always feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Your passion for the piano is inspiring!

      Warm wishes,
      Thomas

  • Hi Thomas, thank you for sharing your style in teaching piano lessons. It's easy to follow through step-by-step. Although I don't practice as much as I should (I practice secretly when nobody is around the house) I still learned a lot from you. Thanks again. One more thing is about your
    Premium Course "Piano Complete", is this a workbook that I can read or a CD that I can play, or your sending it by emails too? Thanks again

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Beth,
      you are welcome. I am so happy that you join here.
      Try to practice regularly and then you will make great progress.
      Piano Complete is an online download course. After the purchase the class is uploaded in the library. Here you always have access to the class. You can download the videos, burn them to DVD or copy them on a stick. You don`t get a hard copy.

      Have fun playing piano

  • Hallo Thomas, I am German living in Northern Califirnia. I really enjoy your lessons and slowly making progress on my keyboard.
    I practice every day a little, since I had problems with my wrist; I have a loong way to go but I need my brain to get thinking of the tthe new 2 finger system. Thank you for your video.
    Annette

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hello Annette, wie geht’s? I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying my lessons and making progress on your keyboard. Practicing a little every day is the best way to improve, especially when dealing with health constraints like wrist issues. It's impressive that you're persevering despite these challenges. With patience and persistence, you're sure to succeed. Remember, every small practice session counts and can lead to significant improvement. I wish you continued success and look forward to supporting you on your journey.

      Best,
      Thomas

  • Hallo Thomas,
    Vielen Dank für die Videos. Ich lerne sehr langsam, übe jeden Tag. Es dauert und ich muss mich gedulden. Mein Ziel ist es gut zu spielen. Ich habe noch einen langen Weg. Ihre Lektionen sind sehr hilfreich und Sie erklären diese wunderbar und leicht verständlich. Ich schreibe alles mit, da ich keine Noten lesen kann, habe ich ein cheat sheet auf meinem Keyboard. Ich schreibe mir alles genau auf. Danke, sie erklären alles sehr gut.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hallo Anette, wow! Und hier noch mal auf deutsch. Danke für deine lieben Worte! Ich freue mich sehr, dass du hier bist und werde alles geben, dich weiterhin zu unterstützen. Viele liebe Grüße, Thomas

  • I took my 7th lesson today and feel I'm making progress. I plan on practicing ALOT! Thanks Thomas 😊

  • John Kay, Edinburgh. says:

    Found this so difficult. All good doing left hand by itself for chords C to G. Right hand good doing same chords. However brain says NO when I try to do both hands together. So my Sunday is spoken for as I will give it my best shot. Fingers crossed. I do enjoy your lessons. Your English is very good so well done you.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Thank you, John, for sharing your experience! It's great to hear you're enjoying the lessons and making progress. Remember, every practice session strengthens your skills and enriches your learning journey. Keep going, your dedication is truly the key to success. Happy practicing!

      Have fun playing piano

  • Bill. At 79 years young with no previous musical experience what so ever but with a yearning to be able to play a piano I have treated my self to a new Key Board. Searching the internet I found your very encouraging lessons.I have just started lesson no 7. Your way of teaching is excellent I have enjoyed every minute so far. I must confess that this lesson is really testing my capabilities and I will need a week or two to master this bit.I will persevere!!!!!
    Many thanks for your exelent teaching.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Bill
      I think it`s great that you learn to play piano now.
      Keep up the good work. Make this in your own speed and take your time.

      Have a nice day and enjoy playing piano

  • Lori Birk says:

    Thomas I’m having trouble with my fingers playing. I have arthritis in them. It’s taking me a little longer with this lesson. But I love it. If I purchase the bundle of lessons for 97 dollars is that the same lessons.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hello Lori,

      Thank you so much for sharing your situation. I'm truly sorry to hear about the arthritis in your fingers. Please take all the time you need with the lessons; it's important to proceed at a pace that feels comfortable for you. Regarding the bundle, it not only includes access to the 10 lessons you are currently enjoying but also provides a comprehensive course with many more lessons to help you advance further. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact me.

  • Lori Birk says:

    Thomas are all the lessons in the bundle which is 97 dollars.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Lori
      thanks for your message. The free crash course which consits of 10 lessons is not part of the premium class Piano Complete.
      Piano Complete is a very extensive and separate course.

      I wish you a lot of fun playing piano

  • Edward Funnell says:

    Hiya Thomas, i am enjoying the lessons very much, I wish I had the money to buy a keyboard when I was in my teens, I have always had an interest but never had any lessons before. Now at 73 I have been given a Yamaha e203 , I am struggling a little as I have arthritis in hands and wrists but am persevering, the main problem I have is with my 4th finger in both hands hitting a note when I use the 3rd & pinky, do you have any tips? . I really like your method of teaching as it is beginning to open a whole world of dreams musically, thank you.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hiya Edward,

      Thanks for your comment! I'm really glad to hear you're enjoying the lessons. It's never too late to start, and it's fantastic that you're diving into music now.

      It's totally normal to struggle with your 4th finger, especially when using your 3rd and pinky fingers. Every piano student faces this challenge at the beginning. The most important tip I can give you is to be patient—over time, it will get better and better.

      Keep practicing, and don't get discouraged. You're doing great, and I'm glad you're enjoying the lessons!

      Best wishes,
      Thomas
