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.
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!
