In Piano Technique and Ear Training, I have captured all of the technical requirements that pianists need into a practice routine that only takes 10 minutes a day.

Seriously! A short, to-the-point routine that you can get through in 10 minutes and then move on to whatever else you need to practice.

Every week we tackle a new key until you are able to play in all 12 major and all 12 minor keys with ease.

Each lesson incorporates singing and ear training exercises to help seamlessly develop your musicianship.

Piano Technique and Ear Training is fully customizable to your skill level and the amount of time you have available.

More experienced pianist? Tackle one key a week, while you perfect your technique and work on speed and agility.

Less experienced pianist? Take a few weeks to master each exercise until you feel ready to move on.

The course consists of video lessons with clear practice instructions and meticulously notated print materials. You'll know exactly what to practice and how.

Watch as your technical skills grow while you simultaneously develop your ear training skills.  It's amazing!

Once you've worked through the material, you'll be able to play securely in every major and minor key. Watch your confidence grow as your fingers and ears build measurable skills!

I'm excited to recommend Piano Skills for Singers. This is a fantastic course and an absolute game-changer for voice teachers. Seriously. If your piano is just for scales, and you're convinced that you can't learn to play, think again! Brenda Earle Stokes is a wonderful teacher and her course is super organized! Each section gives you the confidence to move on to the next section. What I really loved was learning that you don't have to be a brilliant pianist to accompany your students! Thank you, Brenda! This is a course that was long overdue!
