THIS COURSE IS AN UPDATE TO AN OLDER COURSE “Learn Piano for Beatmakers and Producers”.

Learn Piano for Beatmakers and Producers has received MANY 5-STAR REVIEWS!

This course will teach how to learn piano by yourself, and is just like taking piano lessons for beginners.

With me continuing to create these online music production courses, I have acquired much higher quality video production gear, allowing me to achieve extremely high-quality courses.

Here’s some reviews from the previous piano course (this course is very similar, but way higher quality, and a bit more in-depth.)

  • [Fantastic course. I had a hunch that trying to learn to play classic piano wasn’t really going to help me produce. This course solidified that and I’m now on my way to actually making great music. I highly recommend this course. – Chad Fox (5/5)]

  • [This is what i been looking for!! Thanks!! – Gina Sloan (5/5)]

  • [The content so far is excellent and understandable so with a little practice I can achieve my personal goal I set at the beginning of the course. Awesome course!!!! – Rob Young (5/5)]

  • [Riley (GratuiTous) is a great instructor. I have a done 1 on 1 with him in the past regarding vocal mixing and a bit of mastering and he knows his stuff. If you are a beatmaker and have little to no experience with playing the piano and want to learn for production or just to learn to play the piano this course is for you! This course brought my music productions back to life – Andrew D Brown (5/5)]

So what’s all covered in this course, and what’s all the hype about?  Why such good reviews?

Well, I’ve been creating these music production courses for many years now, and I would not have continued if it wasn’t for your amazing feedback.

Students continually tell me I’m able to break down concepts in such an easy to way to understand, which still relates to the real world when it comes to music production and how we can apply these theories to real world practices!

As a beatmaker, I discovered we beatmakers actually play the piano differently than a classical piano player.

If you’re trying to check out YouTube tutorials on “how to play the piano for a beginner”, or, “how to play piano to make beats”, you will not find your answer.  Trust me, I was at that point in my production career, too!

Classical piano players have a different mindset behind the piano.  Sure, we beatmakers and classical piano players use the same instrument to make our music, but our outcome is different.  Therefore, our mindset should be different, and how we practice and use the piano should be different, too.

So how do we beatmakers use a piano differently to make our beats?

We need to focus on two main areas:

  • Improvisation (creating melodies on the fly, knowing what notes we’re allowed to play; spontaneity)

  • Catchy loops (we need to train our ear to know what is catchy, and what will and will not work for our loops as a beatmaker.)

With that knowledge in mind, our course focuses on what is necessary to learn these two main concepts, and excel in this field of music production.

There is absolutely no prior knowledge of a piano required to take this course, as everything is covered from beginning to end.

We start at the basics, explaining how a piano works, what notes are available to you, how to play chords, but then keep referencing back to music production, and how these parts of a piano actually relate to music production.

For example, choosing to play an instrument up or down an octave can really help in the mixing stage, and prevent instruments from clashing in the same frequencies!

You may ask, is it necessary to learn piano for music production?

The answer is actually no.  You can click notes in to make a beat, but if you don’t learn piano, it will take FOREVER to click notes in, and it is much harder to create beautiful compositions and great ideas if you don’t know the piano.

In my opinion, I’d say yes, it is necessary for a beatmaker to learn piano for music production to become a great music producer.

You can enroll into this course above, and I’ll be happy to teach you how to learn the keyboard for music production.

Here’s a quick list of what you’ll learn:

  • Differences between beatmakers and classical piano players

  • How a piano works

  • How to make practicing fun on a piano

  • Learning and Interaction (I show you cool tricks you can use, then how to practice using them.)

  • How to actually play a piano to make beats (we even create a beat in this section!)

  • How to play with both the right and left hand together, and improvise!

  • Tips to practice the piano efficiently

Sound like a useful course?  You bet it is.  The previous piano course continues to help thousands of students every year learn the piano.

And now with my new video equipment, the piano course has gotten even better.

Enroll now, and take these online piano lessons for beginners.  You’ll learn how to produce music in any genre, as the information relates to music production as a whole.  (hip-hop, edm, etc.)

Who this course is for:

  • Producers wanting to learn the piano to make amazing beats and compositions
  • Beatmakers wanting to make fire beats and program their MIDI notes from their MIDI keyboard

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.


  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
