‘This course was incredible — as I finished going through all of the lessons I felt a shift in how I felt about music and what I could possibly accomplish in the area. This all came about through this instructor’s easy way about conveying what you can do in very little time — you just have to get a couple of skills under your belt! Thank you so much Eve — you’re truly an inspiration!’

‘This course is amazing very easy to follow and really helpful. Thanks.’
If you are a singer but not an instrumentalist and want to be able to accompany yourself so you don’t need to hire accompanists or you had piano lessons in the past that just didn’t gel for you, this is the course for you.
In this course you will learn to play piano so that you will quickly be able to perform live, record videos for YouTube and Facebook and find gigs without having to split the money with an accompanist. Piano is a beautiful instrument and it will open up a whole new musical world to you.
I am a signed songwriter and performer. As a singer I have released 3 albums and undertaken tours and major festivals. At first I had to bring other musicians on board to accompany me as a singer until I learned to play piano accompaniment using chord sheets. I want to pass on this method to you. If you hate sight reading this could very much be the course for you.
This course is really aimed at providing a piano accompaniment for singers, so it won’t be the course for you if you want to be a straight pianist. Hopefully if you are a singer who doesn’t yet play, you will learn to love this beautiful instrument and start out on a voyage of discovery. The course is beginner level.
Music theory especially harmonics and rhythm
Time signatures common to popular music
Creating a ‘bed’ for your vocal
Improving your internal timing
Playing to the right standard to go out and get gigs

After the course you can go out and accompany yourself with confidence. You will also notice an improvement in your singing due to increased knowledge of harmonics and timing.
To get out gigging as soon as possible, please enroll now and I look forward to working with you!
