Musical Structures

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.” These 5 mini courses 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.

 

Chords

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.
These 9 mini courses teach you the way real musicians play, using the full harmonic spectrum, which opens the door to playing full and rich-sounding.

Patterns

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. These 4 mini courses will teach the building blocks that allow you to turn any set of notes into a flowing, grooving, moving piano part.

Extensions

How to Spice Up and Sophisticate Your Chords

Unfortunately, most chords played on piano still sound bland. These 3 mini courses will show you the next phase in voicing, “sophisticating” your chords to take them from juvenile to mature.

Embellishments

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.

Re:Harmonization

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.

Scales

How to Use Music's "Dialects" To Add Color & Flair

Many people consider scales to be boring sequences of notes that have to be repeated endlessly, purely to create nimble-fingeredness. The 4 mini courses in this "sub" layer, will show you that scales are far from boring when you use them in the correct ways - as musical dialects for a profound musical understanding.

... and how YOU can implement his tricks-of-the-trade into all of your playing!

Elton is a Master...

A master of Chord Piano.

As one of the founders of modern pop-piano, he has managed to create and record some of the most inspiring contemporary piano parts.

So, how does he do it?

How does he transform seemingly simple chords into his magical piano accompaniments, riffs and intros? How does he think? What does he play exactly?

That is what this Play Like Elton BootCamp shows - step by step.

Get step-by-step help to implement & apply Hack the Piano's concepts... to play like Pop-Piano legend Elton John

Here's What You'll Get Included With This FREE Bonus Course

In this four-week Premium BootCamp, based on the Roland-featured Chord Piano Methodology “Hack the Piano,” we’ll deconstruct every single little detail of Sir Elton’s piano style into tangible, manageable chunks.

We’ll demystify his parts, take out any guesswork and learn exactly what makes Elton sound like Elton - and help you, step-by-step, implementing his traits to improve all of your playing.

Clarity

Using the appraised “Musical Layers”-framework, we’ll dig deeper into gradually more advanced levels each week.
You’ll be shown exactly how Elton’s mind and fingers work to learn to understand his approach - allowing you to take those skills into all of your future playing.

Guidance

With the email accountability course to support you through the journey (making sure you follow through with reminders; exercises, tips), personal assignments and class-like workshops - we've taken out all the guesswork and paved the clearest possible path for you to implementing Elton's traits.

Personalization

The main workshops, built from 100% scalable content - truly feel like personal classes.
Choosing your own favorite songs to do the weekly exercises and assignments give this program an unmatched personalized touch.

Training

Play Like Elton is built around weekly, 90-minute workshops that grow more advanced - and more exactly like Elton - every week.
Clear, scalable weekly exercises and assignments help you progress and learn as fast as possible.

Sir Elton's Signature Style

Elton John has that distinct sound. A sound that's be heard in any of his songs and has been so influential that it can be recognized throughout all of Pop-Piano.

In this BootCamp, we'll deconstruct and take a look at which techniques make up that sound. 

You'll learn not just how to play something in a specific song, but how to use his musical traits in all of your playing.

Here's What This Bonus Course (included FREE) Will Teach You

4 Weeks.
4 Iconic Style-Traits.

This step-by-step program is built to help you apply, implement and execute.

Each week we'll tackle a specific trademark stylistic layer of Sir Elton's iconic sound [chords & voicings - patterns, techniques & feel - signature fills & licks - overall style] using one or more of Elton's fantastic songs as vessels to exemplify and demonstrate.

Week 1 - Elton Chords & Voicings

The first step in learning how to sound like Elton is to learn how he arranges his notes on the keyboard. In week 1 we’ll take an in-depth look at Elton’s favorite way of grabbing chords, which is the harmonic foundation of all the rest of his style.
Week 1

Week 2 - Elton Patterns & Techniques

Although simply laying down week 1’s voicings like Elton does, will already get you sounding surprisingly close to him, his patterns and techniques - the way he breaks up those chords and connects them to each other - will add the livelihood and make it sound musically, like Elton.
Week 2

Week 3 - Elton Embellishments

Sometimes Elton just likes to riff-and-run. Or even just to add his sparkling improvised piano flare to a tune. Growing a bit more advanced still, we’ll deconstruct and learn typical Elton embellishments - those that he has recorded, as well as those he likes to “throw in” live.
Week 3

Week 4 - Elton Style

Putting everything together, we will take a look at the signature piano-parts of a handful of his song, before wrapping up combining everything we've learned.
Week 4

Elton's Songs

Some of the songs we'll analyze in-depth: 

"Your Song," "Rocket Man," "Tiny Dancer," "I'm Still Standing," "Daniel," "I guess that's why they call it the blues," "Border Song," "Burn Down the Mission," "Bennie and the Jets," "Amoreena," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me" and more..  

Accountability & Guidance

What's the single biggest hurdle with starting any new endeavor? Bringing up the discipline to follow through. Baked-in to this BootCamp is this fail-proof, step-by-step email accountability course.

Exercises & assignments

Clear, step-by-step exercises and assignments to quickly learn, understand and implement Elton's tricks-of-the trade.

weekly workshops

In each of the four 90-minute+ masterclasses, we'll take a thorough and deep dive into Elton's music and style of playing.

Dedicated online course

Find the recorded workshops, handouts, extra info, materials, lessons and assignments in this dedicated, always-accessible online course.

Incredible Value

People have paid up to €999 to attend the live edition of the the Play Like Elton BootCamp, with the downside that they could only pick up and remember so much after each of the four workshops ended. 

Since we have now decided to make this *scalable* program digitally available in streaming format for you to re-watch and re-do as often as you like (scaling up with every go-round) while keeping all of the live-program's benefits, the actual learning value and convenience has increased dramatically, while the price has come down significantly (in fact, I'll give it to you for free with this unique upgrade offer!)

NOTE: The Play Like Elton BootCamp course is NOT available anywhere outside of this page

Whenever you want to!

As of this newest release, to bring down costs and make it more accessible, we have decided to make the program available in digital streaming format. It is still presented to be taken in the four week time-frame, to give you the benefits of the live program, but with the added benefits of taking it whenever it fits your schedule.

Apart from the fact that students who did follow the live edition (at a significantly higher price tag) in fact benefitted the most from the recordings, we've still kept all the guiding facets that make this program so step-by-step and valuable active with the email accountability course, coaching and lesson-grading. 

As soon as you activate the program, it takes four weeks to complete it. After that, because the program is scalable to your level at the time, you can choose to retake it however often you like, each time at a gradually more advanced level. 

All of my teaching, including all premium content you'll find inside of Piano Lingo (our premium online Pop-Piano academy) is based on the Hack the Piano methodology - as is the Play Like Elton BootCamp.

Elton John is one of the grandfathers and founders of modern day pop-piano. Whether you are a true fan of his, or even if you don't like his music at all - studying his playing will add HUGE insights to playing piano by chords. 

This BootCamp can either function as a perfect introduction, or as a more specialized deep-dive into the world of chord-piano, putting Hack the Piano into practice in a guided, structured, hold-you-by-the-hand, step-by-step way.

Piano Lingo is our "members area" where - among other lessons - you'll find Hack the Piano's + Advanced Piano Hacks' Online Course Program: The Chord Piano BluePrint.

In a nutshell: how to play and sound like Elton John. 

This doesn't just mean you'll simply learn how to copy some of his songs.
You'll learn how he thinks when playing. How he chooses his chords and voicings, how he writes songs, which (combinations of) patterns he uses and some of his favorite fills, riffs, licks and techniques - so that you'll be able to use that either for tackling more of Elton's songs by yourself, or to upgrade your overall playing by implementing these tactics and re-using them in any future song you'll play.

We will learn "universal" tricks, traits and techniques to actually understand this style of piano. This works on ALL songs and you are free to choose your own songs, to do the exercises and assignments with. 

This goes for the BluePrint, as well as the Play Like Elton course - even though that is obviously geared towards Elton's music. To analyze and learn his way of playing we will of course use his music. Some songs we will deconstruct include: 

"Your Song," "Rocket Man," "Tiny Dancer," "I'm Still Standing," "Daniel," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "I guess that's why they call it the blues," "Border Song," "Burn Down the Mission," "Bennie and the Jets," "Amoreena," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me."  

Since we are Amsterdam -and thus Europe- based, you'll be charged in Euros. The dollar price depends on the current conversion rate and optionally costs your bank or credit card company charges for the conversion. These costs are outside of our control unfortunately and conversion rates vary by day. 

At the time of writing Google states that the current price converts to: $247

Please note that we cover any taxes.

That's the beauty of this new edition: all live sessions are recorded! The recordings can be accessed in streaming format (meaning you can also pause, rewind, fast-forward etc. all things that were not possible when the sessions were held live) in the online master-course as often, and for as long as you like! 

Was it more fun to join the sessions live? Possibly, but it also came with a price-tag that was 5 times as high. 
Is it possible to get an equal amount of value out of the program using the recordings of these live sessions? Absolutely - hence this offer.

How does lifetime access to the Play Like Elton BootCamp sound?

You'll have access Piano Lingo's Premium content (Chord Piano BluePrint Program, Virtual Workshops- & Practice Room) for 6 full months initially, then as long as you stay subscribed. 

Everything in this program is scalable and using the 6 pillars of chord-piano, we'll deconstruct and then build everything we do back up, gradually growing in level of difficulty. 

You can "stop" (stick to) the level that's challenging, but not too difficult for you, which -whatever level that might be for you- will get you sounding very close to Elton. 

The nice thing about a streaming edition like this version of the course, is that you can then redo the course later, going up to the next level.

Having said that, it's advised that you at least have a basic understanding of chords, triads, inversions, quarter- and eighth-beat patterns and extensions - hence us offering a bundle that includes Hack the Piano (in both the enhanced ebook form, and its online course program "the Chord Piano BluePrint" in Piano Lingo), which will teach you all of that and more. 

Let me ask you this: Have you ever seen Elton, or any one of your favorite artists look at sheet music at any of their performances? Exactly. 

That's because they play pop-piano: piano by chords. They knows their chords, harmony-theory, voicings, patterns and how to play with those. This is how they form all of their piano parts and this is exactly what you'll learn too, both in the BluePrint (general) as well as the BootCamp (more specific to Elton traits).

Chord-piano. No sheet-music (only chord-sheets).

That's not a question! 🙂 

Just kidding. You can ask me anything by simply sending an email to coen@piano-couture.com

This special offer will help you have success faster. It's not for everybody, but for those of you that are serious about learning how to play pop-piano, the Play Like Elton BootCamp will add an unprecedented level of guidance, accountability and structure, while demystifying and teaching you the traits of one of pop-piano's greatest players - adding huge insights to your musical understanding. 

On top of that, the Chord Piano BluePrint gives you access to the most complete A-Z, beginner-through-advanced Hack the Piano (+ Advanced Piano Hacks) Online Program at only a fraction of the cost, plus access to the practice room and hands-on "Chord Piano Mastery" workshops that take the Piano Hacking concepts and put them into practice on real music.
