Frequently asked questions

Synthesia visuals originally come from the Synthesia Game. The idea of the game is a Guitar Hero but for piano. It has become a very poplar practice to upload piano songs to YouTube using these visuals. With proper understanding of piano strategies, learning using these visuals will boost your progression speed and potential. Almost any song you can think of can be found in this format with a quick YouTube search. If not, you can easily create one. We show you how in every course.

No. The lessons you receive with your course are prerecorded. However, each course comes with free, live virtual lessons that are unlimited until you complete your course. 

If you do not understand a lesson, contact us and we will schedule a time to have a virtual lesson with you, totally free. There are also places throughout the course to offer feedback, which we will use to optimize all of the lessons.

It’s not a matter of being better overall. It’s a matter of being the best option for an ambitious person who wants to progress rapidly on the piano. This is the only guided learning experience we know of that offers this without a mountain of unnecessary information dressed up as important. 

Any 88 key weighted keyboard with a 3 pedal unit will be fine.  If you’re looking for a starter piano, you do not need a 3 pedal unit. Most keyboards come with a single pedal. It’s the most commonly used pedal. However, it is still strongly recommended for you to have a full 88 key weighted keyboard. I personally have a P125 Yamaha with a 3 pedal unit. The Williams Allegro III was my first piano. I learned a lot of Unravel on this Keyboard.

Yes. You will see faster progress. You will not get to say you are a piano connoisseur, but you will have the results of one. Just without the fancy terminology. If the end result and an easier path is what you’re looking for in learning the piano, this method is it.

Yes. We have multiple lesson packages put together for total beginners. Ambitious beginners and those who just want to dip their toe in the water to try it out. We also have a course for beginners dedicated to learning Animenz’s Unravel like I did personally.

Yes. The new perspective on piano learning will actually boost how fast you are able to learn even more than if you had no sheet music knowledge at all. This is the case even if you’re only familiar with sheet music for different instruments. You will see faster progress with our strategies in general, which could also be applied to sheet music in many ways. You will become a more well-rounded pianist.


You don’t need anything special. Just all of your fingers, eyes, and ears. If you have those, you have all the talent you need! Especially after taking sheet music out of the equation. If you’re willing to practice, you have what it takes. Motivation to play a specific song that challenges you could open up a gift you never thought you had.
