What people are saying
Simply Music is fantastic. I finally took my children out of piano lessons because they were never practicing! My kids, of all ages, love this! My 14-year-old son, who complained a lot before, now sits down and plays forever with this new method! They all do, actually!
This is a wonderful music program and the results are astounding! Even if you don’t consider yourself musically talented, this program is designed for you! It is easy to understand and easy to play a full repertoire of beautiful songs from a variety of genres.
I am so happy with this program! In just 3 weeks my family is now having mini-jam sessions, something I’ve wanted to do for the 13 years I’ve been married. I took 4 years of piano as a child — never memorized a song, never accompanied anybody. Now, I’m accompanying and having fun with it. Thanks for offering Simply Music.
I’m an 80-year-old. I started Simply Music to stimulate my aging brain. The effect it has had on my cognitive function has been extraordinary. I’ve gone from feeling lazy and being disorganized, to the exact opposite! I’m living proof that you are never too old to learn, and that learning the piano slows the decline of an aging brain. The amount of work and talent that has gone into creating this program is extraordinary.
I have seen a lot of music programs over the years. Here’s one that has it all. In terms of presentation, effectiveness, philosophy — you name it — there’s nothing out there that compares!
My family simply loves Simply Music. Honestly, we had just about given up on learning piano. We have tried private lessons, self-teaching manuals and also purchased other programs. Within 3 weeks of starting your program, my 7 and 9-year-olds, and myself, are all learning new songs. My children are enthusiastic about piano now and I am thrilled. Thank you so much!
Simply Music has broken the mold and set a new standard for what can be accomplished in a very short period of time.
I wanted to let you know what a great gift Simply Music has been for my children and me. I have a Doctorate in oboe performance, but never got the knack of piano in graduate school. Simply Music has given the gift of piano playing to my family and has established a love of music for my kids that will stay with them forever!
I have played since I was 4-years-old (almost 40 years) and piano was my principal instrument in college. All my life I struggled with performance and memorization. Oh my goodness, if only I had known how to look at music this way way back then. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for opening up the world of music to me. Five years of being a Music Education major, after many years of being a piano student, did not do for me what Simply Music has done in two short years!
Thank you for sharing this incredible method of teaching and learning to play piano with the world! I have twin 10-year-olds who absolutely love what they are able to play. I love that they can play blues songs, classical songs, accompaniment songs, as well as contemporary songs! Thank You for the difference you are making in the lives of my family. Keep up the great work!
Let me begin by saying just how thrilled I am with the Simply Music program. I’m playing better now than I did after years of traditional lessons. I hope you continue to provide ever more advanced studies for a long, long time to come.
I have to admit, I was skeptical about Simply Music… I was wrong! I bought this for my 11yo daughter. BEST. CHOICE. EVER. And I am not exaggerating. I literally showed her the program and said, “Here, just do as it suggests.” She has since been at the piano two or three times a day. I am over the moon happy. Thanks SO much for offering this program and making it available to all! We love it.
Frequently asked questions
A. Quite simply (as is the case for the vast majority of our students), if you start this week, you’ll be playing great-sounding songs by next week. Many, many of our students who start today, will be playing songs by tomorrow. And for a lot of our students, you included, it’s absolutely likely that you’ll be playing complete songs, with both hands, the very same day that you start.
A. Here’s what happens: You begin playing music right away – within the first 5 minutes. Yes, 5 minutes! You’ll start with simple but beautiful improvisations over a gorgeous, professionally-produced soundtrack that you’ll play right from your computer, tablet or smartphone. And immediately thereafter you’ll begin building a repertoire of songs. It's immediate! Of course, your results are even better if you can practice regularly for a small amount of time. Having taught millions of Simply Music lessons over the last 2+ decades, we’ve found that the ideal practice routine is about 15-20 minutes daily, 4-5 days per week. Naturally, if you’re able to practice more often, then we guarantee even more fantastic results!
A. You don't need to have any attention on, nor even any interest in reading music. In fact, the traditional approach, where students are required to first learn how to read music as a means of learning to play, is one of the main reasons why piano lessons have such a disastrous failure rate. The traditional ‘read first, play later’ approach would be equivalent to every parent insisting that their child first learn how to read and spell as a means of learning how to talk. Preposterous!
As is the case with all of Simply Music's programs, our Music & Creativity program temporarily delays music-reading and draws on your natural and existing aural, visual and kinesthetic skills. Our ‘play first, read later’ approach is just like learning a native language — ‘talk first, read and spell later’. Our unique and revolutionary way of teaching gives you immediate access to your innate musicianship. You’ll build a huge repertoire of great-sounding songs learned through our natural ‘playing-based’ approach of seeing music in terms of shapes and patterns. Remember, the brain is a pattern-seeking device, and as such, the Simply Music approach is perfectly aligned with the way that the brain loves to learn.
A. With the Simply Music playing-based approach, you’ll play with both hands immediately. There’s an experience of success with each new piece that you learn. The pieces are fun and sound quite advanced. If you're willing to play for others, they won't believe what you've done in such a short amount of time. The positive feedback you get, combined with your own joy, success and satisfaction will be powerful in keeping you engaged.
A. Simply Music is unlike any other piano program available. We start with playing — not with reading. No arduous scales and exercises. No tedious drills and theory. You will learn to play by being immersed in the experience of playing and making real music. Exactly like how you learned to talk! Right from the start you’ll be playing great-sounding songs that you’re excited about.
With Simply Music’s playing-based approach, you’ll be playing immediately — with both hands. There is an experience of success with each new piece that you play. The songs are fun to learn and great to play because they sound rich and mature. When friends and family hear you play, they won't believe what you’re achieving in such a short amount of time. The positive feedback, combined with your experience of success, will be powerful in helping to keep you engaged in the process.
A. Piano lessons have one of the highest failure rates of any taught subject. The way instructors have traditionally approached piano teaching has left a vast number of students feeling as though piano is only for those who have a special talent or ability, or those who work very hard for a very long time before achieving any ‘real’ success. Traditional approaches have made it both astonishingly easy and, in fact, quite likely for the majority of students to get discouraged and give up.
However, Simply Music's breakthrough approach is completely different. We believe that absolutely everyone is deeply, naturally and profoundly musical. Playing the piano doesn't require any special talent. It's not just for some people. It’s not hard to learn, and it doesn’t take a long time. It's for all people… (including you!). We draw on your existing aural, visual and kinesthetic skills and get you playing immediately by taking advantage of the brain's inherent design that looks for patterns and sequences.
Even if you’ve previously played for years and then quit, Simply Music will give you a fresh approach and immediate success. You’ll be surprised — maybe even shocked, by what you can do and what you can play by adapting to a new way of learning.
A. Here at Simply Music we have an overarching goal for every student: That they will have music as a lifelong companion. Learning to play any instrument, or to be successful in any endeavor, requires a long-term relationship. As a parent, it is important to recognize that long-term relationships have peaks, valleys and plateaus that last for any length of time and are constantly changing. Recognizing that will help you to stand for your child and their commitment to playing the piano and to understand that there is nothing wrong when your child hits a valley or plateau — it's all part of the journey.
When you sign up for the MAC program, you’ll receive a FREE digital copy of the book Music and the Art of Long-Term Relationships. Written by Simply Music's Founder, Neil Moore, this educational supplement will assist you in managing your child's progress and success.
