Why Choose HSP?

HomeSchoolPiano has been designed to teach even absolute beginners how to play the piano. Built on solid methodology that integrates throughout all 18 units, the rhythms and technique that you learn at the beginning of each unit carry over into the reading, song and improvisation learned later in the unit.

HomeSchoolPiano is different than other piano methods because we focus on developing the entire musician. Far too often students learn only to read music and their musical ear suffers. HomeSchoolPiano develops the ear, reading, improvisation and composition skills of each student equally which makes them a better pianist and a full musician.


What Kind of Songs Will I Learn?

At HomeSchoolPiano you'll learn easy to intermediate songs ranging in styles from blues to jazz and rock to classical-type songs. 

Regardless of style, these songs teach you techniques that you can use in ANY style of music like worship, gospel, pop and more.

Here are some examples of the songs you'll learn: 

Book 1 - Unit 4 "Frisko The Disco"

Book 3 - Unit 4 "Montuno Man"

Book 3 - Unit 5 "Finally Summer"

Book 3 - Unit 6 "Rockin in D"

We Begin By Learning Proper Technique

Each step of the way, you'll have 24/7 access to our step-by-step videos that show you everything in HD detail. We begin with proper piano technique because without it, you will always hit a "wall" in your piano playing.

Next, We Focus On Rhythm 

Rhythm is the engine in music. Without proper rhythm your playing will sound "off." We fix this by learning a vocalization approach invented by HomeSchoolPiano creator, Willie Myette.

We Also Learn To Read Music

You'll learn how to improve your ears if you like to 'play by ear' but you'll also learn how to read music! This important skill allows you to play virtually any song at the piano or keyboard.

Learn The Song

The song will be broken down for you step-by-step so you can easily watch the video to learn the song. Combined with the rhythm, technique and music reading lessons earlier in the unit, it is easy to learn the song because all of the elements have been properly prepared for you.

You'll Learn How To Improvise

Improvisation is when you create something on the spot using the tools you know and have practiced. Anyone can learn to improvise and compose. At HomeSchoolPiano we believe that a full musician is one who feels comfortable reading music...or improvising their own music.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is this program for kids or adults?

HomeSchoolPiano is for beginners...kids or adults. If you're brand new to the piano (been playing less than 6 months) then HomeSchoolPiano will be perfect for you. If you already have some piano skill, check out our main Jazzedge membership instead.

I'm an absolute beginner, never played piano, is HSP right for me?

Absolutely! In fact, our CorePiano™ program is included with your membership. CorePiano features 4 hours of step-by-step lessons on the notes of the piano, basic rhythms, how to sit at the piano and more fundamentals to get you started the right way.

Do I need special equipment or a real piano?

No. Any basic keyboard will do. Also, nothing connects to your piano or keyboard. There is no special computer equipment that is required. And, if needed, inside the member's area I share with you some different keyboard/piano options if interested.

How is HomeSchoolPiano structured?

HomeSchoolPiano is divided into (3) Books or "Levels."

Within each level you'll find (6) units.

Each unit has 6 lessons along with a quiz. When you pass the quiz you will receive a certificate. Quizzes are timed and you can only take them 2x.

How does HomeSchoolPiano compare to ABRSM or Royal Academy

ABSRM and Royal Academy grades and exams usually test students in 4 areas: Pieces, Sight-reading, Scales and an Aural exam. While HomeSchoolPiano does not teach traditional classical pieces and instead uses a mix of original and traditional songs, you will learn how to read music, play scales, theory, ear training (aural skills) and more importantly...improvisation.

HomeSchoolPiano is different than other methods because improvisation and the student's creativity are developed and focused upon more than traditional piano programs.

See the HomeSchoolPiano Unit Summary to see what students learn at each level.

Should I start with HomeSchoolPiano or Jazzedge ?

Jazzedge® and No Bull Piano™ are larger lesson libraries that are for typically for more advanced students.

While students at any level can benefit from Jazzedge/NBP, it is suggested that students that are brand new to the instrument (never played piano before or have less than 6 months of practice) begin with HomeSchoolPiano first.

I want to learn ___ style of music. Will HSP help?

The songs found in HomeSchoolPiano range in style. We have songs that sound like blues or jazz, while other songs have a classical or latin feel. the style of music is less important because the concepts that you are learning are applicable to all styles of music.

How many credits will I earn with HomeSchoolPiano?

You'll earn a certificate for each unit that you complete. You can take these certificates back to your homeschool organization for credit transferral.
