Free online piano lessons with videos — beginner / elementary level
These lessons are especially geared towards children and parents, and also piano teachers who teach children — but they work for all beginning piano students! I explain everything in very simple terms so that you can learn yourself, and also teach your child, without any prior knowledge of the piano.
I can't teach anyone piano to any advanced level (you'll need a teacher/lessons at some point), but I hope these lessons help people get started and help parents find out if their children are even interested in learning the piano. That way they don't have to commit to paying for piano lessons and waste their money if the child is not motivated. Parents can use these free lessons for starters, and then, if the child is progressing and is interested, they can sign the child up for piano lessons.
Choose a lesson from the list below.
