Did you wish you could tick a few more of those “I Can Do This” boxes in the Musicality Checklist?

If you’re like most keyboard and piano players you’re probably tired of feeling trapped in reading sheet music – and wishing you could just sit down and play.

That’s exactly how I felt back when I was learning piano…

I desperately craved that natural creative freedom on the keys – but didn’t know where to start.

And to be honest, I doubted I would be able to learn those skills like playing by ear, improvising, having a great sense of rhythm, and so on.

Now, years later, I know the truth: these skills are learnable – and it can happen much faster than most people realise.

That’s why I’ve set up a special offer for you to upgrade your musicality in just 30 days:

Upgrade Your Piano Musicality in 30 Days
… with just 15 minutes per day!

Piano Musicality Jumpstart

We’ve put together a unique 30-day course for pianists focusing on the five most important topics in musicality.

In just 15 minutes per day you will learn new ideas, techniques and skills that will transform how you play the piano.

Every week for five weeks you’ll be introduced to one essential skill, based on five “Resource Packs” from inside Musical U. Each one is like a mini masterclass densely packed with the most important and useful things to know and do to develop your ears and instrument skills for each topic.

Each Resource Pack contains:

  • A 10-15 minute “mini-masterclass” video
  • A “Quick Reference” PDF which you download or print, with all the exercise instructions and details
  • A set of downloadable practice MP3s

We’ve created a special 30-Day Action Plan to guide you through using these Packs. You’ll know exactly what to do each day to maximise your progress.

And although it’s written as a 30-day plan you get access to everything on day one and can work through it at whatever pace you choose.

Up until now these Resource Packs have been available exclusively to Musical U members paying $399/year for access, but today you can get them for a single payment of $59 $27.

We’re providing this because we know a lot of musicians believe they don’t have the “talent” or “gift” required to play freely, confidently and creatively. We want you to discover how easy and fun it can be for you to become more naturally musical.

In just 30 days we’re going to introduce you to 5 essential musicality skills – and give you the personal, practical, hands-on experience of learning them, so that by the end of 30 days you’re equipped with some powerful new skills and you’ll know for sure that you personally do have what it takes to feel like “a natural” in music.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a one-time offer, available on this page only.

These resources are not normally available outside of full Musical U membership.

If you buy the Musicality Jumpstart you will have access to it for as long as you like – but you will not be able to buy it once you leave this page.

  • Mini-masterclass video

Week 1: Learn Improvisation Essentials

It can be intimidating to improvise on piano because typically you’re expected to provide both harmony and melody using your two hands. But improvisation can actually be possible for you, whatever your ability level – and it’s a great starting point for all the other skills in the Piano Musicality Jumpstart. In this Resource Pack you’ll learn some simple but effective ways to get started improvising great-sounding arrangements.

  • One great scale to use for improv and a simple chord progression that goes with it
  • How to completely change your sound with different left-hand patterns
  • Tips and tricks for feeling relaxed when exploring improvisation

Rhythm

  • Mini-masterclass video
  • Quick Reference PDF
  • Practice MP3s

Week 2: Tighten up your rhythm

In this Resource Pack you’ll approach rhythmic precision from the question of “what trips piano players up, when it comes to rhythm?” and get answers including practical tips, exercises, and tech resources to help you improve your own sense of rhythm.

  • The most common rhythmic pitfalls to watch out for as a pianist and how to overcome them
  • Useful left-hand patterns that can help you keep the beat
  • Tips for keeping good rhythm when playing with other musicians

Audiation

  • Mini-masterclass video
  • Quick Reference PDF
  • Practice MP3s

Week 3: Using your voice and “mind’s ear” to play by ear

Pianists sometimes struggle with singing – because their fingers are so far from their ears! In this Resource Pack you’ll learn to bridge that gap through “audiation”, helping your singing and equipping you with the “instinct” for which notes your fingers should be playing.

  • Audiation: What is it? How can you do it? And most importantly, how can audiation be useful for pianists?
  • Audiation and singing exercises that you can use to sharpen your skills
  • Demonstration of specific ways to use your voice while learning to play a song by ear on the piano

Melodies

  • Mini-masterclass video
  • Quick Reference PDF
  • Practice MP3s

Week 4: Learn to Play Notes by Ear

Learning to recognise the different degrees (notes) of the scale can let you play keyboard by ear. In this Resource Pack you’ll learn how to develop the two component skills: recognising which degree a note is, and applying that directly with your fingers on the keys.

  • How scale degrees can be helpful when figuring out a melody by ear, whether with numbers or “solfa” (do re mi)
  • A simple chords exercise that will help you hone your ears for this
  • Two tips that will help you apply your knowledge of solfa to figure out melodies that have tricky leaps or chromatic alterations

Chords

  • Mini-masterclass video
  • Quick Reference PDF
  • Practice MP3s

Week 5: The Essential Chords to Play By Ear

In this Resource Pack you’ll learn about the “three-chord songs” that are everywhere in music and some creative ways to improvise arrangements or accompaniments yourself.

  • An easy way to figure out the essential “one, four and five” chords in any key
  • Four different accompaniment patterns of varying difficulties which you can apply to any three-chord song in any key
  • Tips and tricks to learn and play three-chord progressions
