Dear fellow piano-lover, 

If you suffer from “sheet-music-dependance,” “stuck-playing-the-same-old-boring-tunes-inertia” or just have no clue how to listen through the “cloud of sound” that is music and actually reproduce what you hear on your favorite records… 

if you are tired of putting in all that time learning a tune only to find out you are not sounding like your favorite artist at all, or feel insecure and incapable when you do not have your sheet music at hand then this message is just for you. Here’s why…

There is a system you can learn that allows you to play any of your favorite songs within minutes in stead of days, actually sounding like the pianos on the record (because this is the very system actual pro players use themselves) without ever needing any sheet music.

And you need to realize, there is a cost to not dealing with this…

If You Ignore The Fact That Something Is Inherently Wrong With Learning Piano The Traditional Way, It Just Gets Worse

What most people do when they try to learn piano and face the fact that they can’t quite get “that sound” of their favorite artist, is take lessons from a certified (but classically trained) teacher… try to find the sheets online… maybe scavenge YouTube in search for that perfect tutorial or try every shiny new online course. 

But for most people, none of that works.

  • The primary problem is having the wrong mindset. Thinking that, to play piano, one needs to be able to read sheet music (you don't).
  • Certified teachers are “classically” trained. They have a traditional approach to playing, which is at best decent for learning classical music, but doesn’t work for any pop style (rock, blues, jazz, funk, soul, jazz, hiphop, dance, singer-songwriter etc.) at all.
  • Most of the stuff you’ll find online are gimmicky schemes that are bad for your form and even the way you’ll approach learning music for the rest of your life - stagnating your growth forever.
  • Every half-decent lesson that is out there - that is at least taught by a credible, trained professional - falls back on that dated, traditional system, because that is how piano is “supposed to be taught.” (spoiler: it’s not)
  • Let me ask you this: Have you ever seen your favorite artist look at sheets when playing? Exactly. That’s because they understand how music works - that is what you should be after too.

And what happens if you just do nothing? If you just keep doing what you’ve been doing? You’ll never understand how those “talented” guys (they are not) are able to just sit down and play dozens of YOUR favorites by heart and sound so fricking awesome. Nor will you ever be able to play anything like that yourself. You’ll just be stuck fidgeting with those same old sheets, finger wrestling for weeks on end, to finally be able to play a few boring tunes that nobody enjoys listening to.

How I “hacked” the piano and discovered the secret to sounding like an actual musician.

I’ve got an answer that works. Here’s the story:

As a child, I went down the traditional, “classical” path too - and failed miserably. Abandoning piano entirely out of sheer frustration. After hours and hours of decoding those horrible lines-and-dots-on-paper, having boring exercises crammed down my throat while never seeing any exciting progress. I still didn’t sound like my favorite tunes AT ALL - just like you.

Then, years later, I asked a guitarist friend of mine - who could literally play dozens of songs by heart - how ON EARTH he was able to do that, without needing any sheet music!?

When he told me “you just need to know your chords!” - this got me thinking.

What if I could play “guitar chords” on piano? Was piano really so different...?

Turns out it’s not.

After figuring out how to translate these “guitar chords” to the piano and how to turn them into flowing, moving, grooving piano parts by adding “patterns” (pretty much like those strums and plucks that guitarists use) not only was I suddenly able to learn dozens, even hundreds of my favorite tunes REALLY fast (and play them by heart), but also: I actually sounded like the original records!

Turns out this is actually the “secret” that pro “pop” (think jazz, rock, funk, soul, dance, hiphop, singer-songwriter - basically ANYTHING not classical) players use to sound the way they do.

After this exact method got me into the Conservatory after just 4 years of playing, I figured I needed to create a framework out of it to teach people that there is a better way to learn piano.

So I worked really hard to create a system that makes learning piano (and actually understanding music) really simple.

I started testing this system on my students and - although they all had the same amazing experience as I had - because they had to come see me in person to learn it, they were also each paying me a premium of $8000+ per year..

Another downside was that my limited time allowed me to help only a few students at a time. Then I had an idea:

“What if I deconstruct my entire approach the way it had helped me deconstruct music, then write down and film every step of the way?”

“What if I could create an experience that would be virtually the same as having me there at the piano in person...

...explaining every little nuance to sounding like the big artists - the Eltons, the Billies, the Stevies...

...that could help many more people learn my exact approach, in their very own tempo, on their own schedule...

...and that I could offer for only a fraction of the costs?”

It Worked For These People, And It Will Work For You

Here’s what Chord Piano did for me... 

..play anything within minutes, without ever having to decipher any sheet music... improvise... get into the Conservatory of Amsterdam after just 4 years of playing (no I’m not that talented - I simply found this better way)... write my own music and publish a solo album... get collaboration deal offers and my system (this very system) featured by Yamaha and Roland... be the “Piano Man” when having the best time singing our favorite tunes at family gatherings.. find dear friends through playing.. hone an amazing creative outlet for relaxation and fun.

And it’s not just me.

Over the past 6 years, more than 130,000 people from all over the world have been learning to play their favorite tunes in no time using my system:

"This is most likely to be the best that you'll find when it comes to learning how to play the piano. I've been taught classically for over 10 yrs now but was jealous in seeing a guitarist being able to pick up songs very easily, this program will enable you to that. It's top notch."
"Coen teaches in a manner easy to understand that makes the student eager to learn more... I love that I get to choose which music I want to learn/play... No matter the reason you are coming to the piano this is the program you want to take."
"This method has saved me time and effort. It opens a pathway of consciousness into the world of music. Wow I am glad I purchased this and so will you be if you are looking to fulfill your piano dreams. Worth every penny."
