Piano for All: A Brief Review / First Impressions

Piano for All is a piano teaching program that comes with 10 eBooks, 500 audios and 200 videos.

Just to be clear, I have NOT gone through to the entirety of it yet to give you a complete overview of the course.

What I have done instead is practice early tutorials for hours – because I am bad at it. So, consider this more like a first impression rather than a comprehensive review.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

With your one-time purchase of the course, you’ll receive:

Nine e-books plus one bonus book – These comprehensive e-books take you through various styles of piano music with chords, tunes, and exercises, teaching you just enough theory for each lesson. I’ll go into detail on each book below.

200 video lessons – Embedded in the e-book itself, these videos reinforce skills with explained keyboard demonstrations by Robin Hall.

He plays the lesson on a lower keyboard while an animated keyboard above shows you which notes he is playing, making it clear which notes you should play, what your hands should look like, and how it should sound.

500 audio tunes and exercises – These are beside each exercise to show you quickly what it should sound like. Auditory learners especially will benefit from hearing each exercise before attempting it.

PROS AND CONS

Pros

Visual and auditory lessons. Unlike classic ebooks and printed curricula, Pianoforall provides you with visual and auditory ways to learn the content, which is especially helpful for beginners who aren’t yet comfortable reading music.

Having the videos and audio clips embedded in the ebooks makes it super easy to access this content when you need it.

Jumps right in to playing. You’ll feel like you’re making progress from the first session.

Uses well-known songs. Not only does this make it easier to play by ear, you’ll enjoy being able to play songs that you recognize.

Promotes musicality. Playing by ear, improvising, and composing melodies are often mostly ignored in piano methods for beginners.

Pianoforall teaches these skills thoroughly, giving you a solid base of musicality and ensuring that you’ll always have something to play.

Makes you use your left hand more than traditional piano curriculums.

As is the case for many piano players who take the traditional approach, I was accustomed to focusing on the right hand. As my pieces got more complex, I had to devote a lot of time to practicing the left-hand parts alone.

Since Pianoforall encourages you to practice more with the left hand than the right, students of this program will be less likely have a “lazy” left hand.

Information is laid out clearly and easy to understand. While a bit plain compared to printed curriculum like Faber’s Piano Adventures, these e-books are well-organized and visually clean.

Cons

Little focus on technique. Traditional piano teachers remind their students of their hand position, posture, and their wrist, finger, and body movements.

While lack of this teaching is an obvious drawback of online piano courses in general, Pianoforall in particular does not address it.

I recommend supplementing the course with lessons (YouTube counts) that teach posture and other techniques.

Avoids reading music. Even in the books that rely more heavily on sheet music, the names of the notes are usually provided, and sometimes you’re given the option to improvise.

Therefore, even though one of the goals of the course is to teach you how to read music, it would be easy to come out with a less-than-stellar grasp of this skill.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Pianoforall makes big promises, but for the motivated student, it just might be able to deliver. As long as you understand what the course will and won’t teach you, Pianoforall can help you reach your piano goals.

This course does not prepare students for advanced classical music, but you will come out with many skills that are useful for playing in bands, taking requests, and sitting down at the piano and being able to just play.

In addition, your skills will give you a great foundation for exploring the kinds of music that you want to play.

The value of understanding chords, progressions, keys, and the structure of music cannot be understated for any style of music.

Hall likens his course to learning the alphabet so that you can write whatever sentences you want. It’s an apt analogy.

Piano for all truly builds your skills from the bottom up, giving you the building blocks necessary not only to play other people’s music, but also to play your own.

It’s a unique approach that often feels like putting the cart before the horse – but it works.
