& the Hack the Piano Methodology

Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Coen.

Like virtually everybody, when I started out playing piano at age 4 I was "forced" down the traditional path of learning how to read sheet music too. That didn't work out ...

... and so I quit.

Many years later, at age 17, when I saw my fellow classmates playing like rock-stars at our yearly school concert, I promised myself I was going to learn to play too. So, I went back to that old way of playing from sheet music, which -again- did NOT make me sound like my favorite artists AT ALL... and I almost gave up entirely.

Then, following the guidance of a talented guitarist-friend of mine, I taught myself how to play piano using his approach: by Chords. 4 years later I got accepted into the Conservatory of Amsterdam (major Pop-Piano / Vocals).

Now, over the course of 18 years of playing, I've performed on stage extensively -both solo and in multiple bands- written and recorded with many different artists, became a Roland-featured instructor & one of the top-5 Youtube piano teachers in the world and taught over 135,000 people worldwide how to play piano without sheets.
Hack the Piano is the methodology and backbone of all my playing & teaching.
It's the definitive guide on how I accomplished all of the above without ever reading a single sheet.

Chord Piano Formula is Hack the Piano evolved into a fully guided, Premium Online Training Experience.

It will teach you the exact ways I used to accomplish all of the above and create beautiful piano accompaniments that sound just like those of my favorite musical heroes - Elton, Billy, Stevie - without ever having needed a single sheet.

That's why I built this Roland-featured system ...
... that has already helped over 135,000 students from all over the world Hack the Piano

What does playing "Pop-Piano" mean to you?

For everyone it’s different…

For some it means being able to just sit down at any piano and "be the piano-(wo)man" - entertaining the crowd, accompanying your vocals or their singing along, blasting out the occasional impressive lick...

For others it means creating your own arrangements, whether for existing songs to make covers and post them to Youtube, or even composing your very own music, in the studio or with a band...

and yet others … are just looking to enjoy yourselves and/or your friends and family in the comfort of your own home.

How to STOP being a slave to sheet music ..
.. & never quite sounding like your favorite artists do.

Dear fellow Pop-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 "Normal" (i.e. 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 sheet-music 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 short 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 singer-songwriters like Elton John, Billie Joel, Stevie Wonder, Jamie Cullum, Norah Jones, d'Angelo, Ben Folds, Chris Martin -Coldplay-, Tom Odell, Bruce Hornsby, Paul McCartney, John Legend, Alicia Keys etc.) players use to sound the way they do (and enables them even to play tunes on the piano, that are originally played on a guitar!). 

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 mould it into an online-program experience like no other..”

“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?”

How to Use Music's Building Blocks to Play Anything By Heart

Playing music shouldn’t be so hard to learn. Sadly though, for many people, it forever remains a “cloud of sound.” Structures lift the cloud to show you the fundament hiding below and how to use that framework to quickly learn, remember and play any song by heart.


How to Build, Grab and "Say" Music's "Words"

Most budding pianists don’t sound like the real deal at all, because they approach music on a by-note-basis. Real musicians play by Chords, which is why they sound so full. Chords show you the way real musicians play, using the full harmonic spectrum, which opens the door to playing full and rich-sounding.


How to Add Rhythm and Flow to Your Playing

Unfortunately, for most people, creating flowing piano parts is like trying to speak fluent Chinese - hard, at best. Patterns will teach the building blocks that allow you to turn any set of notes into a flowing, grooving, moving piano part.

How to Spice Up and Sophisticate Your Chords

Unfortunately, most chords played on piano still sound bland. Extending & advanced voicing will show you the next phase in voicing, “sophisticating” your chords to take them from juvenile to mature.

Grooving & Embellishing

How to "Perk Up" Your Playing With Licks & Fills

Licks, riffs, fills. Alluring to most and - as nothing but “cheap tricks” - misused by many. These 2 mini courses will show you the correct ways, mindset, origin and application of any type of improvisation - from a quick grace note, to a full-blown solo.


How to Use Music's Building Blocks to (re)Write Music

Expressing yourself through music shouldn’t be a mystery. Sadly though coming up with anything not written on paper remains a guessing game for most people. These 4 mini courses will teach the different value each chord has within a song and how you can use that to your advantage when composing yourself - either when improvising, adapting a known tune, or when writing your own, full-blown songs.

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

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

..play anything within minutes, without ever having to decipher any sheet music...

... which has saved me a cumulative years of precious time, not spent slogging, but spent with loved ones ...


...get myself 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 music...

...hone an amazing creative outlet for relaxation and fun.

And it’s not just me.

Over the past 8 years, thousands of 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, Hack the Piano will enable you to that. It's top notch."
"..a breath of fresh air. Coen offers thorough piano theory along with chord knowledge backed up with superb videos providing visual demonstrations of the subject of the lesson. He also provides wonderful tips for effective practice. This is not work, this is fun."
"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."

Piano Hacking Is Perfect For (Aspiring):


Learn how music is built and how to use those building blocks to play and create your very own renditions.


Whether you'd like to play with others in a band, or accompany anyone's singing (including your own).


Understanding music's foundational building blocks will improve your arrangements, hooks, licks and riffs. 

... and all piano-enthusiasts looking to play arrangements like they are actually played by artist like Billy, Elton, Ray, Stevie, Jamie, Alicia et. al. - enjoying themselves, friends or family.

Finally It's Your Turn

Chord Piano Formula, will give you the key to...

  • Playing any of your favorite tunes - finally actually sounding like the piano on the record
  • Breaking free from sheet music - no more hours of deciphering, no more dependence
  • Being able to sit at any piano or keyboard and play what you (and everybody else) actually enjoys listening to
  • Playing freely, flowing, grooving, improvising, by ear, by heart.
  • Learning new tunes in minutes in stead of days.
  • Gaining oceans of time (and piles of cash) - saved on mind-numbing lessons and boring theory
  • Understanding how music works, allowing you to improvise and even write your own music.

That’s right. A skillset that - might you even be able to find the right person to teach it to you - would cost you over $12000 and years of tedious lessons... is yours for only a fraction of that amount.

It all comes as part of the Chord Piano Formula, the complete Hack the Piano online training program, which we used to sell for €999 (and that was without any of the insane bonuses I'm about to include here), but I'm offering it here to you starting at only €399 (nuts).

And you are 100% safe to try it out. That’s all I’m suggesting. Just try it for 14 days to see if it works for you.

If it does, you’ll be delighted - and I think that’s exactly what’s about to happen. If for some reason you’re not delighted with all the new musical insights and ideas, the speed you’ll improve, learning the songs you love and the way you’ll make them sound - just like they do on the records - then just let me know and you’ll get all your money back.

A final note from Coen

Piano Lingo - the pop-language

Sheet-music was developed hundreds of years ago... 

A time when there were no other ways to record a tune that showed you how to play it (or let you even hear it)

Today, we live in a day and age where music is written, played and recorded differently.

So - why revert to that ancient system, when you want to play pop music and can use modern means to learn?

Why not learn the same approach your favorite pop-musicians use?

That's Piano Hacking..

... a uniquely different system that teaches the actual approach that professional modern musicians use too ...

... an approach built on understanding music's foundational building blocks Chords ("what" to play) and Patterns ("how" to play).

It's much like learning a language - the language of music

Chords = words, Patterns = pronunciation. 

And like with any language, you'll understand and be able to repeat what someone else says (plays). 

P.S. People love it

Before using Chord Piano Bootcamp, I thought music was just a bunch of notes on the page that I had to strenuously decipher in order to play. The Chord Bootcamp taught me to create music within the structure of chords. I learned that chords have patterns and relationships. I now interact with music on a whole new level! 
Piano Hacker
Before coming across your BootCamp, I had been learning on my own for many, many, many years.  All I had to show for it was frustration and a very halted and hesitant sound.   After a few short months, your approach of “Chording” and music theory has replaced all of that with a significant improvement in my freedom, confidence and musicality.   I enjoy every moment I sit at my keyboard.   Thank you for your help!  It’s been a life changing experience.
Piano Hacker
This BootCamp was perfect for those that want to learn the ‘why’ behind their favorite pop songs! As a classically trained pianist, the focus was on the ‘how’ instead of the ‘why’. Now I have a much better understanding of chords and how they move the song where you want it to go. Thanks so much Coen!
Piano Hacker
I can't say enough about how easy to understand, and well put together this program is. I started letting my kids, ages 9& 11, work on this program and ended up having to buy two more keyboards because they were always playing and learning lol
Piano Hacker
..a breath of fresh air. Coen offers thorough piano theory along with chord knowledge backed up with superb videos providing visual demonstrations of the subject of the lesson. He also provides wonderful tips for effective practice. This is not work, this is fun.
Piano Hacker
This is a fantastic way to learn how to play the piano. In the past I have always been frustrated in learning to play the piano until I found Coen and the Hack the Piano Bootcamp.It is an easy to follow method and it is fun at the same time. The lessons are in bite sizes and are easy to understand. It does need commitment and after a short while, you get to play your favourite songs on the piano. Highly recommended.
Piano Hacker
The Chord Piano bootcamp make piano accompaniment accessible without any deep theoretical musical background. It’s accessible but not “simplistic”.
Piano Hacker
If you're looking to learn music in a more dynamic and less traditional way, then this piano bootcamp is definitely for you. It's very rare to come across this type of approach in traditional music classes, and I found it to be incredibly refreshing and inspiring. If you're feeling tired of reading music and like you're in a musical rut (like I was), then this course could be exactly what you need to reignite your passion for the piano. The instructor at the bootcamp is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and he really emphasizes the importance of understanding the foundations and nature of music rather than just learning specific songs. This approach helped me to gain a deeper appreciation for the art of music and feel more confident in my own musical abilities. Overall, I highly recommend this piano bootcamp to anyone looking to break out of the traditional mold and approach music in a more creative and dynamic way. It was an incredibly enjoyable experience for me, and I think it could be for you too.
Piano Hacker
Following this bootcamp has allowed me to progress my playing at my own pace. Although i do not nearly spend enough time practicing, whatever practice i do happen to have is usually on the back of an amazing classic song. This makes practicing chords and chord progressions so much more fun!
Piano Hacker
The advantage the BootCamp afforded me was a crash course on the concepts, tools, rules of thumb, and "tricks of the trade" of pop piano that I can begin to apply on my path forward. A "normal" process would not have allowed me to see that path forward as Coen laid out in a comprehensive manner and yet a very short period of time.
Piano Hacker
I took years of piano lessons but still was unable to play anything without sheet music in front of me. I also could not break down a song and understand how it worked. I have made some excellent strides in this by taking BootCamp.
Piano Hacker
I have tried other courses and I have always ended up giving up, because what I wanted was to play piano accompaniment while I sing. This is the only course that allows you to learn that in a clear and structured way. I recommend it 100%.
