Hi my name’s Andy and welcome to ‘The Piano Hero’. Last year I launched my first Kickstarter and after an amazing response from all of you I was able to launch my website www.thepianohero.com.
With over twenty years of experience I’ve developed a new way of teaching the piano which focusses on shapes and patterns within the piano, speeding up the learning process and making it far more enjoyable! Old methods of teaching focus on reading music which means that you need to learn the language of music first. This can often be quite frustrating and boring and in many cases leads people to quit. The aim of ‘The Piano Hero’ is to bypass this and because it’s a visual way of learning it’s so much quicker and easier to pick up. This means that you’ll be playing the good stuff at the start which gets you inspired and wanting to learn more! After that if you want to learn how to read music it will be so much easier because you’ll have already gained a good understanding of the piano. I’m pleased to say we now have many more Piano Hero’s in the world and I hope you’ll soon be one too!
A bit more about the courses
The first course I launched the ‘Blues Hero’ takes you from complete beginner to Blues Hero level in just 10 weeks! It can be used as a little party trick to impress your friends or as a good introduction to playing the piano and learning something fun. For all those of you who missed out on it last time now's your chance to get your hands on it again. Here’s what you can learn after just 10 weeks:
Well here we are a year on and I’m launching my second course the ‘Pop Hero’. Most pop songs consist of just a few chords and simple progressions. So once you learn how to play these chords and recognise certain progressions you’ll be able to play the songs you’ve always wanted to. This course is also great for songwriters or those of you who want to start writing your own music and shows you progressions and chords you can freely use as your own. Once again this is a just 10 week course and you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll pick it up.
'VIRTUAL CHORD BOOK'
Alongside the ‘Pop Hero’ I’m also launching a ‘Virtual Chord Book’ that you can access through the site on your computer, tablet or phone. This is a photobook collection of all the chords you need to know in all their positions. Because it’s visual you can quickly pull up the chord that you want to play and simply mirror it with your own fingers. Often when you come across songs online or in a book you are just given the chord names or guitar tab and so you have no idea how or where to play them on the piano. The ‘Virtual Chord Book’ solves this problem and you’ll be playing those songs in no time.
Risks and challenges
So why do I need your support?
After a lot of hard work and time I have designed a beautiful platform to learn from. It’s simple to use and works smoothly tying in seamlessly with the learning process. I want to continue developing this site and adding additional features which takes time and money. I also want to buy some additional filming equipment so that I can film all the content myself. This is one big factor that has held me back over the past year and once I am self-sufficient I can generate content at a faster pace adding more courses to the site and more for you to learn.
So that's my Kickstarter. Please support this project. Become a 'Piano Hero' yourself or gift it to a friend or loved one. If you’re giving or getting a piano for Christmas then it’s the perfect addition, or if you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution then let’s make 2019 the year of the piano! Thanks again for taking the time to look at my Kickstarter and if I successfully hit my target, I’ll look forward to turning you all into Piano Heroes!
