About PGN Piano:
PGN Piano is THE Place To Learn How To Play The Piano! It offers you online piano lessons, wherever you are, whenever you want! With piano lessons added each week, you’ll never get bored, having to play the same type of songs over and over again, you can simply pick the songs you like and start to learn to play piano right away! On the YouTube Channel you’ll find lessons suited for everybody! There’s piano lessons for beginners, and though there are no specific piano lessons for kids, they can still use the lessons to learn how to play their favorite songs, like for instance this lesson!

You shouldn’t consider the lessons to be piano for dummies, instead think of them as a way Sober to teach yourself piano. This is the main reason Back To You I started PGN Piano. I found myself in a place where I wanted to learn piano online, and I simply couldn’t find any good lessons for specific songs. After learning some songs myself, I decided it was Back To You to spread my knowledge, and gave it a go. My first piano lesson ever has now reached nearly 1.000.000 views, and is still being watched many times each day.

I hope you’ll enjoy my free piano lessons, and if you do make sure to subscribe to the channel, so you receive an update in your feed whenever a new lesson is released! Furthermore, you can visit:

To teach your child to play piano, you have to learn it yourself. Understand this lesson and teach your child the basics of piano playing and reading.

This is our first piano lesson in which we explain the basics of reading piano music. We start with 5 notes but using both hands, separate. Master this piece before moving to the next one.

It’s been 1 year this month since I started learning piano and it’s been an amazing and somewhat life changing experience! You may think life changing is a little over the top… but for me it really is true, as this September I will become a full-time music student at University and I’m beyond excited for that!

I decided to make my own 1 year progress video, after watching so many myself before finally committing to purchasing my own digital piano. Who knows, maybe if it wasn’t for those videos I wouldn’t have ever taken that first step, which is crazy to think looking back now! That’s why I decided it was important for me to record these clips and make a video, in hopes of motivating someone else to take up an instrument, giving it there all and seeing where they can go with it too.

Up until month 8 I used Jane’s piano tutorials to learn 99% of the music I learnt. She is a retired math teacher and dedicates her free time to playing through requested pieces by viewers every single day! Mostly all classical pieces have a tutorial and many popular video game, anime, TV shows and movie compositions can be found on her channel. If you really want to learn but can’t afford a teacher, I think this would be your best option.

In this piano lesson we will learn how to take a very childish and simple chord progression and turn it into something that sounds harmonically sophisticated, by altering the voicings using some simple concepts to create mature-sounding voicings. The ideas presented here will not only give you an exercise to practice, but also help you build up your chord vocabulary.

The idea shown here was also discussed in a previous video about inverted pedal notes:

Who is this Lesson Aimed At?

This lesson is aimed at piano players interested in expanding their chord voicing vocabulary. Although some theoretical concepts are discussed throughout the video, YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW ANY THEORY to make use of the forms presented! Just watch, listen and copy what I play, and enjoy! These chord voicings are not difficult to play and do not require any special piano technique.

More About Chord Voicings from Wikipedia:

“In music composition and arranging, a voicing is the instrumentation and vertical spacing and ordering of the pitches in a chord (which notes are on the top or in the middle, which ones are doubled, which octave each is in, and which instruments or voices perform each). Which note is on the bottom determines the inversion. Voicing is ‘the manner in which one distributes, or spaces, notes and chords among the various instruments” and spacing or “simultaneous vertical placement of notes in relation to each other.'”

Cheers Theme Song (Piano Lessons)

Take some piano lessons from Scott Houston “The Piano Guy.” In this video, Scott and his guest, Dave Powers, show you how to play the TV theme song from “Cheers.” Dave and Scott suggest listening to a recording of the song and trying to imitate it. You don’t want to play a song exactly as it is written in notation. Good players interpret the sheet music. Scott and Dave discuss the difference between playing the song solo style vs. accompaniment style. This song is unique in that it sounds good when you play just the melody line because it is easily recognizable. Dave gives some suggestions on how to play stride piano. They discuss in detail how to read and play slash chords.

Scott’s life goal is help you learn to play piano through piano lessons that you can take anywhere and at any time to get you started having some fun at a piano or keyboard as quickly as possible.

The following skills are covered in this video: pedal tones 170, pedaling, slash chord & stride piano. The video concludes with a great performance of the theme song from “Cheers.” Dave accompanies himself on piano.
