As the title implies, Piano for All seeks to take the piano and make it an easier instrument for people to learn. It essentially is a computer-based multimedia course that integrates text lessons with visual and audible elements to create a better learning experience than what’s commonly available through traditional mediums such as books and manuals.
One of the biggest pluses of Piano for All is that it gets you playing popular music extremely quickly. True, the tunes may not be terribly complex, but they’re definitely not “Twinkle, Twinkle” either. As a student, being able to play songs you actually enjoy makes the learning process more engaging, more fun and gives a greater sense of satisfaction.
There’s a lot to like with Piano for All. The teaching methods are progressive, engaging and make the learning process more fun for students. It’s also extremely affordable in comparison to most piano courses out there. Unfortunately we currently can’t give it a full endorsement due to technical quality issues, mediocre video quality, lack of visual learning aids such as light-up keys that you find in other piano courses, and possibly too much emphasis on sounding good and not enough on learning the theory behind how the music all works together. Still, when it comes to budget-friendly downloadable piano courses, it’s hard to beat the value that Piano for All provides. Here is a sample lesson video from the full course.
