If you're comfortable with left and right hand technique, familiar with the keyboard, and have a basic understanding of theory, then this course is for you. By the end of the course you will comfortable playing numerous styles all by ear. Yes, that's right. This course is all about playing by ear.
Hi! I'm Kelsey! I first started taking classical piano lessons at six years old, and I hated it. Piano seemed boring, and one of my teachers thought I was so hopeless she threatened to quit. Then three years into my piano career, I discovered playing by ear, and suddenly piano made sense! I couldn't get enough.
I've lead worship for congregations of thousands. Recorded multiple albums, played weddings, led bands, and performed solo shows. Learning how piano worked, instead of copying exact notes, made me fall in love with music.
The only thing that tops my passion for playing, is the past seven years of teaching hundreds of students. Within just weeks, my students go from never playing a note, to being capable of playing dozens of songs. I accredit their fast progress to making music fun, and showing them that understanding how music is made makes anything possible. With the same simple foundation, you can play Worship to Broadway, Ragtime to Jazz and all styles in-between with just a few tweaks!
I'm excited to introduce you to a love of music, and hold your hand as we take this journey one step at a time!
