    Loved it! Thank you, danke schön, merci, tack!

  • Not bad at all.which means it's really helping me

  • Thanks for giving us your time freely and with so much enthusiasm, even for this lesson!

  • Kevin Lordianto says:

    Hey Sir 🙂 nc to see ur promotion on my fb's wall.. Now i am 14 years old.. I know this basic since i in 3rd grade school.. But we have a same problem.. Lazy to practice.. Any solution? #until now i can play songs like sugar, payphone, counting stars, etc but i dont know wht i push.. Which chords etc.. I just follow the youtube by synthesia.. Hmm i just hope u will make me better 🙂

  • Sidsel Winther says:

    Yes great looking forward to continue:)))

  • The first chord I ever learned and even made up my own little song as a child. I always wanted to learn to play properly but never was given the chance. I'm looking forward to seeing how this all goes. Thank you.

  • I already know the basics but am going to follow along with you. Thanks for this site!

  • Hello there! Just went through the 1st lesson. I am thinking no way this is all there is to it 😉 I'm willing to stick with it though and see how serious it gets. When I played the C Chord my index finger was sticking out and up. I kept trying to keep it curled under but it had a mind of it's own lol. Is this okay or do I need to keep working at keeping in curled under or at least not sticking out so much?

  • Pretty simplistic. Just the "c" chord for an entire lesson? I really like you though, and love the accent.

  • Thanks for the tips. Looking forward to your next lesson.

  • Very informative. Looking forward to more .

  • Wow so simple. You make learning fun Thank you so much.

  • Danke vielmals!! Das hat mir geholfen lernen, besser und ich genieße es auch!

  • Thank you so much for the lesson.. Actually I only know play piano with one hand and I just listen to my favorite song and try to play it even though I don't know if it's the right chords(it's sound like it though). I don't really know about chord and other stuff about piano. I think I'll learn a lot from your other lesson.. Thank you so much...

  • Mashael abdullah says:

  • Hi!
    I'm very glad I took your course, because for a long time I've wished to learn piano and now with your lessons it might be possible. Thank you so much!!

  • Thank you for these lessons, I wanted to learn how to play the piano for a while now and I just didn't know where to start.

    Looking forward to the next lessons, when will I be able to attend those too?

  • Thank you, I just bought my first keyboard (It's a midi keyboard) and I can't find any Instructors here in Egypt so I'm depending on you 😀 . Also My keyboard is extra weighted and since I am a complete beginner I get cramps after 1 minute of playing any Tips Maybe software that can let me play with the touch response anything will do
    Thanks again 🙂

  • Yomen Tohmaz says:

  • Hi Thomas
    Thanks for making your lessons available. I am a late starter in piano and have just developed this interest maybe a couple of months ago. What I like about your sessions is your patience. Hope that there are many more sessions which make it easier for late beginners like me to play songs that we like.

  • I'm waiting for lesson 2 I hope I will get one..and I love this kind of way of piano lesson..thank you..

  • Thank you very much for this first lesson. I'm exciting to see the second lesson. I'm beginner, and my project is to play "comptine d'un autre été" i have seen on youtube your tutorial, but it's too hard for me. I don't play with the 2 hands together. Do you think that is posiible for me a day this song? I'm trying since 3 month, but nothing to do!! Thank you Thomas for your advice. Happy new Year!

  • Dear Thomas,
    Thank you very much! I first came across your Youtube tutorial on Comptine d'un autre ete, and I managed to play it following your instructions. I enjoyed the way you teach piano, it is great fun and I can actually learn much!
    Here I am, hoping to learn more!
    Best wishes for you in 2017!
    kind regards,
    Shuang ^^

  • Thank you so much, it really helped me! And thank you for giving your time.

  • Louise Tate says:

  • Christina Honigberg says:

    Young man I had one piano lesson as a child and the teacher told me never to come back I am 71 now and I think teaching me to play the piano would be the challenge of a life time . Thank you from this Scottish Transplant.

  • Debbie Blair says:

    So excited to see this! I've always wanted to play the piano, have had some lessons but got frustrated because I felt I wasn't getting anywhere! Haven't done anything in years so I'm looking forward to learning from you! My name is Debbie, wife, mother and granmother from Spring, Texas USA

  • Thank you for the opportunity to go learn this way. I will be 70 this year and I first took lessons 20 years ago for about 9 months. I love the beginning course . Thank you.

  • Jeane Scott says:

    I'mJe very excited to have this chance to learn some basic piano so that I can play a little. Thank you for making this available to me.

  • Thank you so much, Thomas, for your lessons !

    My problem with the first one is to play C, E and G only, and evenly. The D and the F sometimes come along with the C, E and G. And my pinkie lacks strenghs. Please, have you any helpful suggestion to correct this while practicing ? Thanks again !

    Kind regards,

  • can u recommend a siutable piano for me as abeginner , and it make abeautiful sounds like yours 🙂

  • Joyce Ferguson says:

    Hi. I really want to learn to play, but to be honest, I tried to learn before; many years ago. My teacher gave up; she told me it was no use; so I gave up too. If I never learn it is not your fault ----- it really may be no use.

  • Alexandra Indries says:

    Omg, you made my life so beautiful with your lessons ! Thank you ! You are awsome !

  • hi Thomas
    thank you so much for the first lesson.

  • This is great! I used to play the n stopped when I was 17. I decided it was time to get back to what I wished I had never stopped. This has been a good refresher for me.

  • Bro! what digital piano should i buy? what digital piano you have?

  • Ellen Oliver says:

    I have been searching on the internet to find something I could play. I found you and you are very easy to follow. You are slow and very clear in your teaching. I just bought a used piano for $200.00 and now I am learning to play thanks to you. I am 74 years old and never played before. I just want to thank you for offering these lessons for free.

  • Thanks!
    I always hated practicing too when I was younger. Now, much later in life, I only know how to play scales! I hope your lessons will help me learn fast without practicing!

  • Hey, Thomas I play the flute and it's a lot of fun by my parents asked me if I wanted to take piano lessons or flute lessons and I said I not sure I will think about it and my mom said she took flute lessons but she played the flute and she wished she took piano so I wanted to ask you what would you do if you played the flute but you had the option to take flute or piano lessons. Also is it okay if I have a keyboard instead of a piano.

  • Marti Montoya says:

    Thank you for sharing your talent with so much has passion. !! It's contagious !!

  • Hi. I am from Azerbaijan. I liked your playing. Actually have a diploma from a music school but I can't play any song. I just know notes. I guess I will learn how to play songs from you. Thanks a lot))

  • Hi! This was a really simple yet handy lesson I have learned today, I'm really excited for the next one!

  • so if you played the flute would you take piano or flute lessons even if you like the piano as well?

  • Venkateah says:

  • Swag legend says:

    ive already learnt Yrimas river flows in 2 days coz of your video and I just started playing .....I don't know any chords yet but thanks to your videos I'm learning a lot ...THANK YOU THOMAS .... Really helped

  • Hey Thomas,

    As a kid I've always loved music, especially the piano, Hearing those pieces being played so fast and beautifully moved me a bit on the inside, each and every time again. I would have loved to play myself, be able to bring that feeling onto others. Too bad we did not have the financial requirements for music lessons, and my parents weren't too keen on music-making.

    Now, many years later, I realised how important music still is to me, and now I got enough to make the ends meet.
    so I finally set myself to learn the piano, thanks to you, and I will be forever greatful.

    Nanook.

  • SUBHRAPRATIM says:

    Dear Sir, I don't have words to thank you, have been waiting long for such a great teacher like you and now the long waiting has come to an end

  • Thanks Thomas for the very helpful first lesson!

  • this is amazing! 🙂 I really appreciate it! my sis had one for years and never knew how to use it so she gave it to me

  • Thank you so much for your piano tutorials on youtube.

    As a child I've played the piano by improvisation (like a lot of kids) but I didn't had the courage to really learn how to play...

    When I became 29 years old, I said to myself: just do it, now!
    It's because of you that I can play 'Comptine d'un autre été' just in 4 weeks.

    You are amazing Thomas. The best online teacher. My dream came true.

  • Ricardo Pierre says:

    Ricardo thank you so much God bless you

  • Liza Diamond says:

  • Thanks so much for the lesson! I am enjoying this very much and I guess for me, you'll be that 'special teacher' ♡

  • Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I am a single mom of 2 girls with one that has cancer. I work 18 hour a day 7 days a week. I was in badly need of a stress reliever or a diversion. I got inspired by Yurima's live performance of the river flows in you, i told my self i need to learn that, i found your tutorial video and in a week i learned it. Oh by the way i have no backround in music, i dont know how to read notes or chords, i only play by ear, but because of your enthusiasm and sincerity i was able to learn. So again thank you! 🙂 i have my diversion and it was an inspiration. 🙂

  • Hi 🙂 ich bin auf dich Aufmerksam geworden als ich mein erstes Keyboard jetzt zu Weihnachten bekommen habe. Hab River flows von dir entdeckt und seit 1 er Woche nichts anderes mehr gesehen 🙂

    Ich komme sehr gut voran und wollte mal schauen was deine Videos noch so zeigen.

    Habe mich gerade bei dir angemeldet und das erste Video bekommen.

    Dank deines River flows bin ich natürlich nun schon etwas weiter. ;P

    Nun zu meiner Frage: wann bekomme ich die nächsten Videos und sind die ähnlich anspruchsvoll wie River flows?

    Nochmal vielen Dank, dafür dass es auch noch umsonst ist 🙂
    Ich finde das ist eine tolle Sache und das sind super Videos.

    Habe sehr schnell Erfolge erreicht und es macht mir riesig Spaß mich jeden Abend nach deinen Videos anlernen zu lassen 😉

    Grüße

    Daniel

  • Lovely lessons to learn 🙂 great jobs 🙂 thanks you a lot

  • Hello Thomas,
    I just had my first lesson, not really but after almost 50 years.
    I'm an "elderly " lady and I made a promise to my friends that I will give them a "concert " before is too late. So, as you can guess, learning to play the piano is one of a few requirements on my "bucket list".
    I have plenty time to practise and I'm hoping you can help me.
    I have selected you for your calmness and for speaking slow.

    Sincerely,

    Ilona

  • Hello Thomas,
    I have received your first lesson and i enjoyed it. Learning to play the piano is on my "bucket list ". I have plenty time and now when i decided it's time to learn I'm ready for the challenge. How often can i be receiving your lessons?
    I won't disappoint you.

    Sincerely,
    Ilona

  • Hi, Thomas!

    Thank you so much for your piano tutorials! I have never imagined myself playing the piano, although I have always dreamt of. But with your help and a lot of practice I have learnt to play Fur Elise....well, not the whole song...just studying the five parts. I am really excited about that and eager to learn the whole song, and not only.

    Is it possible to have a piano tutorial on La Boheme, Charles Aznavour?

    Thank you!

    All the best,
    Mirela

  • GONZALO H LOZANO says:

  • This is actually awesome. I wanted to learn and I was just on YouTube trying to figure all this out, then I saw you're video. It directed my to your program! And it said it was FREE. So I tried it. Now here I am. I was confused at first but, now I'm understanding thanks to your video here.

  • this music you played at first made me get so emotional and so ready to do anything just to play this magical way ❤
    I actually dunno anything about reading music sheets, chords, and these things... I just play piano following synthesia on youtube and I was so proud that I played something finally but later I feel like that's not the music .. I don't enjoy this .. I knew it was the wrong way to learn .. then I finally found someone who gives free lessons on the internet... thanks a lot, sir I hope I can play like you one day

  • can I reach this lesson after some lessons later?

  • should I use same fingers that we used in this lesson?

  • Thanks you so much. Just started the first lesson hire after spending 100+ hours on YouTube for mastering your tutorial on " river flows in you" I'm an beginner and it doesn't feel like I have any talent. But I love the sound of a piano. And happy with, how the song sounds while I play it.
    Looking forward to your lesson s.
    Thanks again.

  • Thomas thank for the easy and simple lesson. I'd love to keep going and learn how to play the piano like a pro.

  • I have always wanted to be a musician since I was a kid, but life got in the way. Now decades later, as an adult more in control of my life, I can consecrate the time (and the discipline) There are many good tutorials on Youtube along with many good teachers. But YOU, Thomas, may be the magician that makes a pianist out of me. Let's see how long it takes me...Vielen Dank!

  • Glad to be one of your students

  • Hi Thomas, leider läuft das Video bei mir nicht...hab einen Apple ...vielleicht liegst ja daran..

    🙂 Grüße aus München

  • I had been interested in playing piano for a long time, but had lack of motivation for the practice. I recently got a 1953 Hamilton piano from a friend, I spent days reconditioning it and I love it! I hope to bring the piano back to life by learning how to play it, and your recorded lessons gave me the final push and hope to practice. Thanks!

  • I am so happy I have found you on the internet. It has been my desire all my life to play piano. I am a senior now and am able to devote time to this but could not get passed all the theory before starting a song. You have made it easy to do and your English is clear and precise so it is a pleasure to listen to your instructions. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent with so many of us.
    Sincerely Old joe crow

  • I learned from this and I have always wanted to learn piano

  • Thanks for the free lessons! it helps a lot!

  • You are a good teacher and also inspiration person. I hope you can keep up your good work on youtube and your lessons

  • Thank you very much, Thomas.
    It's a nice chord. But I have wonder note C on piano, I always use C4 because I count the first C note on left is it right or wrong? why note C3 ?
    Best regards,

  • Dear Thomas, sir,
    This is a wonderful idea...to spread the joy of music to everyone . I am 15 years ild, my birthday was 27th August, and I go for professional lessons, and give a theory and a practical exam every year with the Associated Board Of the Royal Schools of music(ABRSM). I am set to give my grade three exam in December, and I must say your lesson have proved to be a HUGE boon. Please never stop., .
    Love,
    Donovan Dexter Figg

    Hi Great Thomas Froschbach! First of all, my CONGRATULETIONS by your fantastic website/course/technique! Its was a surprising pleasure to me find your website! I'm from Rio de Janeiro/Brazil and started learning your amazinbg "Pour Elise L.V.B. tutorial". Unfortunately I found only 6 lessons, which includes only the initial pieces part. How can I receive the next lessons (following the # 6 tutorial) in order to complete my knowledge about it? I will be very happy receiving this information. If I should pay for it, doens't matter to me, once you let me know how much and how to pay. Thank's my new and great teacher.

  • Hmmm....It was very nice. You are really doing a good job,sir. But,what if, you add subtitles to your videos...You know,it gets a problem to concentrate at both keyboard sound and video sound at same time

  • Thanks for this tutorial, I know that you will be my last stop to playing good sounds out of piano.
    Looking forward for my next lesson.

    Hi Thomas . Thanks for a great first lesson.. I noticed you used your left hand in the video.. is that the correct way to learn or are you left handed? I’ am right handed but I guess that doesn’t make any difference when learning to play ?
    Kind regards
    Paul

You teach so selflessly, so effectively, so patiently, so methodically, in such detail that I can almost play RIVER FLOWS IN YOU even though I am a beginner! In India, we consider a Teacher (Guru) to be greater than God. Much love to you Sir! Let all the success be with you!

    A small request. If you are familiar with Indian music, please create a tutorial video for an Indian song 🙂

  • Elizabeth Hansen says:

    Just learned my first C3 chord tonight and I am already excited to go through this piano course with you. You are very encourageable and I look forward to learning to play piano again with your method. I was 9 yrs old when I started piano lessons, did 3 piano recitals but stopped at the age of 11. Since then I never played the piano again. I thought of taking piano lessons again but had a busy life with work, family and children. Now I am a grandma and would love to spend time playing the piano again. I have to start from the beginning since I don't remember anything anymore after all these years. After listenning to you I feel encouraged and excited to learn to play again!! Thank you Thomas!!!

  • Hi Thomas

    I have just signed up to your 10 piano lessons and completed the first yesterday. I was already using your youtube tutorial and have learnt to play River flows in you by Yiruma! It was challenging but it’s my favourite. I am an absolute beginner at age 47
    I have always wanted to learn piano since I was a little girl and finally I bought my first full size digital keyboard.
    Your videos are helpful and you are very encouraging in them which motivates me to keep trying.
    I wondered is it important to be able to read sheet music to play piano?

    I have even watched some of your videos in german because I used to study german at school and was good at it( it was a long time ago though hahahha). I just wanted to see if I can pick up any words and I could.

    Anyway, just came to say hi and excited for lesson number 2. I haven’t received it yet.

    All the best

    Mrs Nazia Mahmood

  • Thank you so much. U r a great teacher.

  • I found your videos by accident and I am delighted that I did. You are my kind of teacher! I am working on Für Elise, (self taught , started as a older adult last winter) so struggling, but I also have your first lessons to refresh my learning and find your enthusiam brilliant- just what I need to encourage practice, practice , practice- which no-one likes, but your lessons make it enjoyable.

  • Hope to get back into my music again after 45yrs. Need this refresher so bad. Thank you

  • Laura DiSimone says:

    Thank you for sharing and teaching your method. I’ve learned so much already!

  • Hassene Soua says:

    Thank you so much, i started learning alone using apps like simply piano but your lessons seem more fun!

  • I'm a 40-year-old man of a 7-year-old boy who doesn't like to practice his piano lessons. So I decided to learn to play piano together with him. Wish me good luck.

  • Hi. I took classical piano from the age of 5 to 15. I stopped because I couldn't play the songs I wanted to play and reading sheet music was always a struggle. I'm very interested in NOT having to read sheet music and convey the feeling of the music. Is it possible to learn piano and play songs without ever having to read sheet music? Or, do you use lead sheets?

  • Thank you very much for your great instructions. It motivates me a lot to practice more and more every day!

  • Hi my name is tianxin and I am eight years old thank you for teaching me piano I started to play piano a few months ago and on YouTube then I saw your video on play fur Elise then today I joined your piano and had my first class and it was great thank you so much!

  • Thank you so much for teaching me piano you are the best piano teacher ever thank you

  • Hi Thomas, thank you for your free lessons and I'm glade to learn from you, I will practice the piano every day and I will be with you step by step, and thank you for your great taste ♥️

  • Perfect start to my journey of piano! Excited for lesson 2!
    Thank you!!!

  • Thanks Thomas!

    I started my musical journey just this past Thursday with your video from 2017, How to play piano: Your very first lesson + a wonderful EASY SONG for beginner. I think it is a great way to jump in.

    It took me two days to get through that video and now I just have to put the song together. Thanks!

  • David Hughes says:

    Interesting 1st lesson, I already play for myself (By ear) but have issues playing boogie woogie and using my left hand, I hoping your lessons will help me, I look forward to completing the course with you.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi David,

      Thank you for sharing your experience! Playing by ear is a fantastic skill. Boogie woogie, especially the left-hand patterns, can indeed be challenging. I'm confident that as we progress through the lessons, you'll gain more confidence and mastery in that style. Looking forward to accompanying you on this musical journey!

      Best,
      Thomas

  • How should I position my fingers, when playing chords

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Janice,

      Thank you for your question regarding finger positioning for piano chords!

      Relaxed Hand Position: Start with a relaxed hand. Imagine holding a small ball or an apple in your hand. This rounded shape is ideal for playing the piano, as it allows for flexibility and strength.

      Use Your Fingertips: When pressing the keys, use the pads of your fingertips. This will give you better control and a clearer sound.

      Thumb Position: Your thumb (finger 1) usually rests on the white keys, but depending on the chord, it might need to stretch to a black key. Ensure it remains flexible.

      Wrist Level: Keep your wrist at a level that's roughly even with the keys. Avoid dipping or raising it excessively.

      Finger Numbers: Remember the finger numbering system: Thumb is 1, index finger is 2, middle finger is 3, ring finger is 4, and pinky is 5. Different chords will require different finger combinations, so it's helpful to be familiar with this numbering.

      Hand Rotation: Sometimes, you might need to slightly rotate your hand (like turning a doorknob) to comfortably play certain chords. This rotation can help prevent strain.

      Practice Slowly: As you begin, take your time to position each finger correctly. With consistent practice, the positioning will become second nature.

      I hope this helps you in your piano journey. If you have any more questions or need clarification on a specific chord or technique, please don't hesitate to ask.

  • Hello and I am so Excited to start this program. Thank you for the free gift. I am 79 years old and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I just bought a Yamaha keyboard so off we go.
