Introducing Creative Piano Patterns

Sit At That Piano - Play Beautiful Music - Discover The Musician Inside Of You...

“To be able to sit down at that piano and play beautiful, inspiring music that you love to play and others love to listen to is a skill every pianist can have (even as a beginner).

I'll show you how!” - Josef Sykora, Creative Piano Academy

Watch the video below to find out exactly how to get those fingers finally making music you WANT to play...

Creative Piano Patterns is a collection of 30 piano patterns designed to get you sat down in front of that piano and playing beautiful music whilst having fun, learning your core skills and discovering your inner creative musician...


Maxine purchased the beta version of the course a few months ago and this is what she got out of it...

  • Name
    I'm so glad I found this course! I'm 63 yrs old and have been trying to learn the piano off and on most of my adult life.  But whenever someone asked me to play, if I didn't have the sheet music of what I'd been practicing in front of me, I couldn't play a thing. It was so tedious and frustrating. But these lessons show you how to play improvisationally, something I've always wanted to learn but didn't know how to ask for.

    The patterns are great for developing hand coordination and I'm finally getting a feel for rhythm.  The patterns sound lovely too. I sound like I really know how to play.

    It's all just so much more fun! And Josef explains it all so patiently but in a fun, light-hearted manner. If his enthusiasm and encouragement for making beautiful music doesn't infect you, you better check your pulse.

Greg also purchased the course. This is what he had to say...

  • Name
    I had attempted to learn to play piano over the years in fits and starts. I’d often lose interest repeating boring scales and finger exercises over and over. 

    With Creative Piano Patterns I was able to learn by playing things that actually sounded musical – which kept my interest much longer and allowed me to make real and noticeable progress.

    After following Creative Piano Patterns for a while, I even began to be able to pick out the specific musical patterns in songs I’d listen to on the radio. Using skills I gained from the course, I was even able to translate that to playing patterns I had then picked out from radio music.  Finally, Creative Piano Patterns had even given me the extra knowledge to then add/change those patterns to create my own unique pattern; something I was never capable of doing before the Creative Piano Patterns course!

Do you want to FINALLY sit down at that piano and just... play!

Josef Sykora - Your Friendly Neighbourhood Piano Teacher

Creatives,

Wouldn’t it be fantabulous to have everything you need to sit at any piano and be confident you can play beautiful, original music that you enjoy to play, people love to listen to… AND you can practice your core piano skills at the same time?

If that sounds good, my new piano course “Creative Piano Patterns” is made for you!

Let me tell you a quick story...

I remember... it was 2006 and I was at a family wedding.

One of those big posh do's with a main entrance hall and a big sparkling grand piano.

You know that break time in the wedding when everyone was just milling around, talking and not knowing what to do? Well, my dad decided to pressure me into playing that piano.

“Go on Josef… Its right there” He said! Nudging me on.

I didn’t particularly want to. I wasn’t that confident but people weren’t listening anyway and my Dad wouldn’t shut up so…

I sat down and thought about what I could play.

I had no music with me. Nothing was springing to mind.

So I decided to just start and see what happens.

One key after the next. One chord after the next. Then a musical pattern. Then a little melody…

Before I knew it, everything around me dissolved and it was just me, that piano and the music I was playing!

I don’t know how long this lasted but when I stopped the room was dead silent.

I looked around and everyone was watching and listening.

I had everybody’s attention.

Then, I even got a round of applause.

That was actually a good feeling.

I remember thinking at the time…

Wow I didn’t play anything complex. In fact it was very simple stuff. I didn’t play anything difficult or what could be considered much passed grade one standard.

And yet... here I was commanding a room full of people.

What I did, was use a few simple techniques to take a simple musical idea and play with it. Weaving beautiful melodies together that actually work to create REAL music I loved to play and others around me loved to listen.

I turned heads and grabbed attention not by being the fastest or the best, but by using a few very simply techniques and playing real music that touches people!

Beginner or Intermediate.... You can play music you love and others love to listen to

And I'll show you show!

I want to give you the tools, the skills you need to be able to sit at any piano, regardless of your ability level, and have the confidence to just play!

Play music you love, and music others love to listen to.

Without sheet music and without worrying about what to play.

Whether you’re at a wedding, a friends house, on your own or just playing for your wife, hubby or even the grandkids.

Because ultimately why do we want to play piano in the first place? Putting all those hours into learning…

Is it to sit and play scales and exercises all day?

Although they are necessary it’s so easy to get bogged down in them and frustrated that you aren’t playing real music or putting those exercises to real use!

  • Name
    Michelle Lewis - I've been learning piano for three years and although I was enthusiastic, all the teaching methods and teachers I originally tried were boring, difficult and repetitive.

    One day I happened upon Josef on YouTube. I purchased Creative Piano Patterns and have thoroughly enjoyed working through each pattern. Josef has brilliantly crafted this course to enable me to understand music theory and progress through different levels and styles of playing while still making wonderful sounding music.

    His tuition is succinct and the course has comprehensive printed notation, play along sessions and variations. Josef has a unique and friendly way of communicating his love of music. I absolutely recommend Creative Piano Patterns to any potential piano student

In fact, if someone asked you straight up to play some music for them… Could you do it?

 

For me, nothing excites me more about playing piano than knowing I can sit down on demand and I have the tools to be able to lose myself playing MY OWN beautiful and impressive music.

Its all about the music. If not… why bother playing piano at all.

So “Creative Piano Patterns” is here and gives you everything you need to just sit down and play music.

But much MUCH more than that…

Lets get a bit deeper into the course...

Lets Unlock That Musician Inside Of You...

Introducing Creative Piano Patterns

30 Creative Piano Patterns designed to get you sat down in front of that piano and playing beautiful music whilst having fun, learning your core skills and discovering your inner creative musician...

Okay, let’s get down to business. How will Creative Piano Patterns Get You Playing Beautiful Music Now?..

Glad you asked Creative,

In a nutshell, its really quite simple.

Step 1 - Choose Pattern

Step 2 - Play awesome music

What? You want more... Ok, ok.

I have spent a long time organising this course so its very simple to use. You can just dive in and get going straight away.

Every pattern is contained within one of 3 “series” or collections of patterns.

We have...


The Beginner Series - 6 Creative Patterns

Hand coordination a struggle? Maybe moving between chords or just getting those fingers moving and familiar with the keys...

The beginner series is all about simplicity. Not overwhelming you with everything under the sun... just great sounding music to get you familiar with those core skills you need as a well rounded pianist but also to get the most out of the rest of the course.

Pattern 1 is dedicated to nailing that sustain pedal - the number one thing you can learn to sound like a pro even as a beginner - Plus infinite creative musical ways to train it.

So Beginner routines, short and sweet, great to get you going and those essential core skills developed!


The Blues Series - 6 Creative Patterns

The Blues!

Nothing gets me more pumped up and energised than a good round of the boogie woogie.

So here's where you can get a quick dose of inspiration, of energy. Something to get you going.

Boogie woogie not your thing... well you will still find benefit here because there is NOTHING better for developing hand independence than the blues. In fact, pull off just pattern 1 in the blues series and you'll see immediate benefits.

So blues series - 6 patterns, get the heart going, get energised, get coordinated... Done!


The Kick-Ass Series - 18 Creative... Beautiful Patterns

Ah, the Kick-Ass series.

I LOVE this series. This is where the magic is.

If you've seen my patterns on the old U-toob and liked those, you will LOVE these.

They are richer, more detailed, more melodic, more complete and just out and out better in every way.

Want to explore simple techniques to generate melodies that sound amazing, on demand and just work? Follow the principles laid out in Kick-Ass pattern 15(the river flows over and under) and 18 (open chords and flow). A Fool proof technique that just works!

If you want to work on your rhythm skills while playing beautiful music... Kick-Ass Patterns 1 and 2 are for you (Joining Einaudi - Infinite variations)

If you want to use simple, step-by-step techniques to create beautiful melodies, inspirational chord progressions and impress yourself and those around you with your piano playing… This series is for you!

If you want to sit down and play beautiful music - Here's 18 Kick-Ass patterns that will show you how!

So we have our sections, but this is how every single pattern is broken down to help you get the most out of each pattern...

Inside every pattern we start off with the video lesson, the notation and then your lesson notes.

The lesson notes are a fantastic breakdown of the pattern.

We have...

An Introduction

The story behind the pattern. What its all about and how the pattern might link into the other patterns in the course...

Skills

A breakdown of the core skills you will learn inside the pattern

Tips

Various tips to help you through the patterns sticking points and various common mistakes / struggles!

Resources

Where appropriate, i've put together some further reading, lessons and guides to help you with the relevant skills inside the pattern.

Every pattern helps you become the musician you want to be whilst playing beautiful music...

 

Firstly - Your skills!

Every single pattern helps you with your essential core skills. Whether its hand independence, changing chords, your sense of rhythm… or those skills which tap into your inner musician like your sense of melody, injecting feeling into your playing and discovering what sounds good to you as an individual musician.

This means you can improve your skills whilst playing music at the same time! Less boring… more fun! Win-win.

Secondly - Get creative - Become the musician - Play for hours

If you think of the overall essence of the course... this is it! How to develop your inner musician.

The more patterns you play, the more creative you will be.

For every single pattern, we explore in step-by-step detail… how you can get creative and make each pattern your own so you can be proud of what you are playing.

We break every pattern down into main themes and variations.

Your main theme is the essence. The musical idea. The variations musical ideas based on the main themes.

Put them together and like building blocks, you can create your own sound. Your own piece of music.

Scattered throughout the course are solid foolproof techniques for generating infinite beautiful melodies that work, playing around with beautiful sounding chords for hours or generating infinite rhythmic variations to really make these patterns unique and develop your inner musician.

The Kick-Ass patterns really are Kick-Ass! Check out this perfect example - How to sound seriously amazing using this straight forward technique to produce beautiful music on demand!

Click play and take a listen...

I LOVE this pattern.

Its Kick-ass pattern 18 from the course which I’ve called “open chords and flow”.

I love it because this is a perfect example of what this course will do for you. You can learn the principle, the themes and the variations (which we go into in depth) and then just sit and play for hours. Exploring the music and developing your musical ear.

The video here is me restricting myself to everything we learn in the pattern and just playing around with it.

I absolutely love being able to do this. You can too! (And thats just one of the thirty patterns in the course!)

The Play Along Sessions - The most valuable videos in the course

If you feel overwhelmed and stuck...

These videos are the most valuable in the course.

Join me in real time as we play through all the main themes, all the variations for every pattern in the course.

We start out very slow... painstakingly slow but its super effective for developing smoothness and confidence.

Then a medium speed and finally full speed.

These videos are always there for you to turn to when you want to stitch those patterns together and make them sound fluent and lets be honest... like a proper piece of music!

But for a little icing on the cake here’s a quick breakdown of some extra stuff you will get depending on which option of the course you choose...

The play-along sessions +

  • Name
    James Heard - I am a 57 year old complete beginner and have always wanted to be able to play the piano but never quite got through the first few lessons.

    Learning scales and chords, while essential, can on their own make learning pretty dull.

    Well I bit the bullet and bought myself a digital Piano and started lessons. I started with scales again, learning the major chords, broken chords etc. and playing little ditties like Muffin man but it was becoming pretty boring after a few weeks.

    It was then I found Josef Sykora's videos with some real fun basic patterns that not only sounded good and more melodic than the stuff in my grade 1 book but also further developed my core skills and finger dexterity.

    I then joined his Creative piano patterns and became a Patreon so I could ensure that I would receive as much as possible on offer from Josef. It really has been a revelation, the next best thing to having Josef as your personal piano teacher!

    I am still having my weekly piano lessons but I can now play a number of really interesting melodic patterns as well that importantly keeps me highly motivated and is more interesting for my family to listen to in the background than me playing only basic grade 1 and grade 2 book stuff.

    The best thing of all is I have adopted the patterns and made some of them my own by changing some of the notes and order as the basic formula given allows me to express some creativity with my playing. Thanks Josef!

Have a Question...? No problem. Shoot me an email here - Contact - and let me know you're interested in creative piano patterns.

Before you send a question in... here are a few frequently asked questions...

  • Q.Do I get Lifetime Access To The Course

    A.Absolutely. Once you purchase the course, its yours forever. The course will be added to your account, or a new account created for you and you can use this account to access the members area whenever you want.

  • Q.Is this a one-time fee or a recurring fee?

    A.Your payment is a one time fee. No recurring monthly payments. The only exception is if there is the option to pay in instalments and you choose to do so. Only then will you be billed monthly and this will stop automatically at the end of the instalment period.

  • Q.Does the course include Notation?

    A.Absolutely. For each pattern and each main theme and variation in the pattern, i’ve included the notation as well as printable sheet music documents so you can print it out and stick up by your piano.

  • Q.How do I know this course is for me?

    A.If you’ve read through the whole page and still unsure if the course is right for you… You can try it out risk free for 30 days. If its not for you, shoot me an email within 30 days and I can issue you a full refund.

  • Q.Is this course suitable for complete beginners?

    A.Absolute complete beginners, never touched a key? No. However, there is no reason why you can’t dive into the beginner patterns as a complete beginner. Its just you may need to fill in a few gaps such as fingering, what the notes are etc. The absolute basics aren’t included in the course.

  • Q.Your demonstrations look quite advanced. I’m a beginner. Can I still use this course?

    A.Yes! Inside ‘most’ patterns, or where appropriate, I give you a variety of options to use when you play the patterns. I did this so that you can start out using the relatively simple method and work your way up to the more advanced method.

  • Q.Is this course included with my purchase of creative practice routines?

    A.No. This is an entirely different course with a different purpose. It needs to be purchased separately.
