Today you will learn all chords of a scale. And these are all chords you need to play thousands of songs.

Please leave your feedback below or send me an email. Your opinion is very important to me! I try to become a little bit better every day.

    You are an amazing teacher!
    I used to play the piano when as a child but I stopped.

    First song I learnt was für Alice from you, now I learn River flows in you, that's such a beautiful song, can't wait to know it all, plus your lesson...

    HI, these lessons are very easy to follow. Not too fast or too slow. wish you could teach in classrooms across the country such that children in minor grades receive a firm musical foundation. Thank you for sharing.

  • Thank you Thomas for your lessons so far , you are very dedicated to your art i have to put more time into practice, as i seem to get bewildered easy and i find it difficult to use my right hand and swapping my thumb, probably because i am left handed and it seems off putting to ask it to do something different.
    but i am determined to learn so i can make my son eat his words!
    Thank you once again, cheers, Peter B.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hello Peter,

      Thank you for your heartfelt feedback. Everyone has their unique challenges when learning an instrument, and it's completely natural. Being left-handed might indeed present some initial challenges with the right hand, but with dedication and consistent practice, you'll overcome them. Your determination is commendable, and I'm here to support you every step of the way. Keep at it, and I'm sure you'll surprise your son in no time!

      Cheers and best wishes,
      Thomas

  • Am I the only one that does not see any video?

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hey Gabby,

      I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble viewing the video. You're not alone; sometimes technical issues can arise. Please try refreshing the page or checking your internet connection. If the problem persists, let me know, and I'll do my best to assist you further.

      Best regards,
      Thomas

  • Thank you..I wish you would name the keys in each chord vs 1 up.I am not able to get to my keyboard.
    I love listening to you.
    Is there a chord book you can suggest?
    As well does the left hand play the same chords as the right hand?
    Do you have a book you wrote that we can buy?

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Rhonda,

      Thank you for your feedback and kind words! I understand the importance of naming the keys, and I'll aim to be more explicit in future lessons for those who might not have immediate access to their keyboard.

      Regarding your questions:
      1. While I haven't published a book, I highly recommend my online course, "Piano Complete." It covers a wide range of topics and should provide the detailed instruction you're looking for.
      2. Typically, the left hand can play the same chords as the right hand, but often in different inversions or voicings, depending on the piece or the desired sound.

      I'm glad to hear you enjoy listening to the lessons, and I truly appreciate your interest and enthusiasm. Looking forward to our continued journey together!

      Best wishes,
      Thomas

  • I learned more about basic musical theory from your lesson today than I thought was possible in such a short lesson. Thank you so much

  • Brenda Mox says:

    I am 73 and have never played any musical instrument nor do I know one note from another. But I received your email and was inspired by your approach. I just bought a yamaha E453 and have only just begun with the lesson. Stiff old hands! This will be an awesome challenge. Please speake slower and move slower on the chords.

    • Thomas Forschbach says:

      Hi Brenda,
      great that you join the crash course and that you want to learn to play piano.
      That`s a very good piano. Enjoy playing it.
      You can change the speed of the video. Like this you can watch the video slower. You can change the speed with the little wheel.

      Keep up the good work and have fun playing piano
