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

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 premium program, 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 You'll Learn

4 Weeks.
4 Workshops.
4 Iconic Style-Traits.

This step-by-step program is set up to help you applyimplement and execute.

 

Built around hands-on workshops, 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 by 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..

The "Self-Serve" (aka "recorded edition") of the premium "Play Like Elton" program, which includes: Access to the 4 recorded workshops, email accountability course, online master-course with handouts, downloadable materials, assignments and workshop recordings.

A perfect fit as an addition to your Hack the Piano book, since Elton John is one of the most exquisite Pop-Pianists, who plays purely with a Chord Piano approach too - this course will show you exactly what to do, step-by-step, and how to implement the Chord Piano strategies, tactics and techniques.

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. 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 this course.

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 course 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, step-by-step way.

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" Elton tricks, traits and techniques to actually understand his style. This works on ALL of his songs and you are free to choose your own songs, to do the exercises and assignments with. 

Having said that, 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: $229

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 sound?

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 look at sheet music at any of his performances? Exactly. 

That's because he plays pop-piano: piano by chords. He knows his chords, harmony-theory, voicings, patterns and how to play with those. This is how he forms all of his piano parts and this is exactly what you'll learn in this BootCamp too.

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, this unique course 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. Here's a quick recap of everything you're getting:
