For those students who, for whatever reason, aren’t able to learn with an educator, or for those who prefer to learn on their own without the support of a teacher or coach, this online, ‘Learn Piano at Home’ program gives you a taste of the Simply Music Piano method, quickly gets you up and running, and will immediately have you playing a repertoire of 20 or so ballads, classical, accompaniment and blues pieces.
We’ve partnered with Heroˣ, the world leader in incentive challenges, and we’re offering a million dollar prize to anybody who can create a virtual piano that’s viewed and played entirely through wearable eyeglasses.

The world, more so than ever before, needs creative thinkers who inspire possibilities. The younger that children are immersed in music, the better prepared and developed their minds are to to contribute to the new technological world we’re living in. The Music Rhapsody program, developed by world-renowned educator Lynn Kleiner, lays an extraordinary foundation that nourishes and nurtures the creativity and self-expression of every child. This beautiful music making program, starting from birth through age 5, is designed to transition seamlessly into the Simply Music Piano program.
The accordion remains one of the most accessible and diverse instruments in the world. Since its creation in the 1800s, it’s maintained prominence throughout South America, Europe and Asia, and was one of the most popular instruments in the USA until the1950s.

In partnership with world leading accordion manufacturer, Hohner, as well as world-champion accordionist and educator Patricia Bartell, we have translated the Simply Music Piano methodology to the accordion, and are excited to transform the education and recognition of an instrument that has such a rich and long-standing global tradition.
