Beginner Piano Lessons
Anytime is a good time to start piano lessons. HomeSchoolPiano is a program which teaches you from the ground-up how to be an excellent pianist. By combining music reading with improvisation and ear training, HomeSchoolPiano creates a “total” pianist who is just as comfortable reading music or creating their own music.

Maybe you haven’t found the right piano teacher or perhaps your current teacher moved away or stopped teaching? Many families also question spending hundreds of dollars each month on private piano lessons.
Many families are turning to online piano lessons, not only for the convenience…but also the cost savings.
Each year, families spend thousands of dollars for one-on-one piano lessons. This cost becomes a burden on some families and causes them to stop lessons altogether. This made me think…
There’s got to be a better solution for families, right?
After all, there is nothing worse for a piano student than to start lessons, be working toward a goal, then have that resource taken away. This could be due to time, money or maybe their teacher just moves away!
Or, what about the student who doesn’t practice every week?
It’s a fact that traditional learning modes are changing in our Internet-connected world. It has become easier than ever before in human history to learn on our own schedule.
The way we learn is cyclical. Sometimes we are really focused and driving hard, but at other times we need a mental break and we kind of ‘check out’ for a while till the cycle starts again.
It’s impossible to have 100% focus all of the time when we are learning. As parents we see these cycles in our children and know when they are at the top of their game, and well, when they are not.

With today’s technology, I realized I could use video and the web to deliver my lessons to students and help them learn the piano from home. Since HomeSchoolPiano lessons are all video-based (this means you see your teacher in the video) students are able to learn more effectively than by using software.
HomeSchoolPiano adapts to how the student learns. If the student is in ‘drive mode’ and is excited about learning, they don’t have to wait till the next lesson to move forward. The videos and quizzes are ready for them at any time.
However, if the student is busy with other activities, vacationing or core academics need more attention right now, no problem. The lessons are always there waiting for them to return. Best of all students can login from anywhere.
Every time a student logs in at HomeSchoolPiano, they can see exactly where they left off. Whether it be a day or a week, the student can always pick up exactly where they left off.
Going on vacation? No problem! There is no private lesson to cancel, no bill to pay.
Find you learn best at 7am? No problem! Since the lessons are always available, always waiting for you, you can learn any time of day or night.
Worried about needing special equipment? I’m happy to say you don’t need any! The HomeSchoolPiano program works perfectly with any computer (including tablets) and any piano or keyboard is fine.
HomeSchoolPiano is a pay-once-own-it-for-life program. This means you own HomeSchoolPiano and there are no monthly fees.
HomeSchoolPiano is a great deal. After all, for that price you get piano lessons for up to 6 people in your house! The math is easy. Piano lessons usually cost around $20-30 per lesson. That’s upwards of $400 per month for piano lessons.
In one month’s time, HomeSchoolPiano easily pays for itself but you continue to get access to all of the lessons and quizzes for life!
My student’s mom, Jennifer, summed it up best:
“It’s an excellent program all around. it encourages creative thought by teaching how to read music and create your own music. It also helps train your ear, encourages improvisation, and at the same time is full of musical theory that is needed to be able to read and play music at all levels. Practical, simple and engaging…What a winner!!” — Jennifer, A “Peace” of Mind
HomeSchoolPiano’s 6-step program is a unique blend of traditional piano technique along with creative improvisation and composition lessons.

Songs That Are Fun To Play!
Learning The Piano Has To Be Fun. Let’s face it, if kids are not playing fun stuff at the piano, they’re much more likely to want to quit. Our HomeSchoolPiano songs have been designed to teach students a wide range of styles including classical, jazz, blues and latin.
This diverse collection of musical genres allows for new learning opportunities. For example, when learning a blues song, you might decide to learn about blues musicians like Otis Spann, Robert Johnson and Bessie Smith.
Our Students & Families Say…
What makes HomeSchoolPiano unique for us is the instructor, Willie. He obviously enjoys music, and his enthusiasm is contagious. He isn’t a dry instructor that comes across as a drill sergeant. He loves music and wants to inspire others to “unlock the pianist within.”

I am loving HomeSchoolPiano! I love the encouragement to have fun and be creative, and the broad base of skills being taught.

Seriously, this is a keeper. When you compare the price of this to individual lessons, the price can’t be beat.
Audra, Simply Audra Marie
The “portability” of these lessons has been one of my favorite things.
Lynn, This Day Has Great Potential
HomeSchoolPiano has given me the ability to learn piano comfortably. I found HomeSchoolPiano to be a top-notch piano learning program for children and adults.
Patricia, Raising a Self Reliant Child
Each level is divided into 6 units. Each unit contains a lesson on:

- Reading – learn how to read music faster and learn how to create your own accompaniments using techniques I’ve learned from years of training
- Song – learn to play really fun songs that are catchy and turn heads
- Improvisation – unlock your creative side and create your own music
- Bonus – each unit includes an extra bonus section for students to learn advanced techniques. This is particularly useful for advanced students
Is This the Right Program For Your Family?
This program is NOT FOR YOU if…
- you believe you can become a REAL pianist within an hour
- you think you’ll learn piano by letting this program sit on your shelf
- you only want to learn scales and exercises…never songs or improvisation
Anything that’s going to be successful requires work. You will learn some cool stuff within the first hour, but it usually takes students 18+ months to go through the complete program.
Lifetime, Unlimited Online Access!
As a member of HomeSchoolPiano you enjoy unlimited online access to all of the sheet music along with 18 DVDs of content…over 20 hours of streaming lessons!
You also have the ability to track up to 5 students progress individually along with quiz scores. Students accounts must be part of the same household.
How does this program work?
You begin with CorePiano™, a collection over over 30 lessons that teach you piano essentials. These lessons are created with the beginner in mind. If you are brand new to the piano or coming back after a break, these lessons will help you succeed at the instrument.
Next, you move on to Book 1 which is designed for the absolute beginner to the piano, featuring six original pieces that are fun to play and practice. You’ll learn how to read music, improvise and create your own music. Each unit improves your piano skills with graded quizzes.
Book 2 continues where Book 1 left off, working through rhythm, technique, music reading, songs and improvisation. If you have some piano training under your belt, Book 2 is a great place to improve your skills.
Book 3 is where you’ll learn how to create rich piano arrangements. By incorporating original pieces in a variety of musical styles, Book 3 helps you become a well-rounded pianist, ready for the next challenge.
Convenience, Cost & Benefits
Private piano lessons can get expensive. On average, it costs $99 per-month for private piano lessons. HomeSchoolPiano gives you 2-3 years of video-based lessons which would cost upwards of $2,376 with a private teacher. Multiply this by more than one student per household and it can be costly.
We are strong supporters of private piano teachers. However, we know that the time and cost involved with private instruction does not always fit into a family’s budget. HomeSchoolPiano gives you the freedom to learn at any time of day or night from the comfort of your home. Best of all, you get to go at your own pace.
Often students feel embarrassed or nervous playing in front of their teacher. Our lessons remove this barrier to learning by making the lessons fun and engaging without being stressful. Need to see something played for the 100th time? No problem, just rewind and play it again!
Our virtual keyboard makes seeing what is being played a snap. You will see every single note played light up along with the note name right above the piano keyboard.

Would You Like FULL Access To ALL Lessons?
I wanted to share a brief glimpse into our life from earlier this week. Emily was done doing the dishes and decided to sit down and play the piano for a few minutes before dinner. (She is now almost 17, & had never had formal lessons before HomeSchoolPiano.) She sat down and started playing Beethoven’s “Fur Elise” that she had found the sheet music for in the book that came with our keyboard. My husband walked by, realized she was playing it herself (not listening to the keyboard play it,) and walked over to me w/ a tear in his eye and whispered “She’s playing with both hands!” I whispered back ” I know, isn’t it wonderful?”
Thanks again for such a great program!
“No Brainer” Piano Lessons
As you can see the bonuses add up to more than online access alone! If you’re a beginning pianist and you want to learn the piano…this is the package for you.
I really wish I had access to these lessons 35 years ago. It would have made learning improvisation, reading music and composition a lot easier LOL!
The online system has been designed to allow up to 5 students per account, so your entire family can learn to play the piano. Watch the video.
The online quizzes make it easy to track your progress and having all of the sheet music printed in a beautiful binder makes it super easy to pick up right where you left off.
