Modern Piano Isn't Played From Sheets
ASPIRING POP-PIANISTS BEWARE

Traditional Sheets Will NOT Get You That Sound You're After

Don't try to learn modern piano parts, using an ancient system...

Piano Hacking is...

Piano Hacking | The Modern Approach

Become Everyone's Favorite
Piano (Wo)Man.

Finally actually sound like your favorite artists ..

.. without ever needing sheets again

Have you ever seen your favorite artist look at sheets while playing? Exactly.

Our "chunking" methodology focusses on learning re-usable blocks: chords & patterns, that are much like words and pronunciation in language.

Learn how styles like Pop, Soul, Blues, Funk, Hip-hop, Singer-Songwriter etc. are made, and played.

We use a rhythm- and harmony-theory approach - the founding pillars of all music. So you learn to sound exactly like the record, or improvise to create your very own unique rendition.

Conservatory-graduated and tons of experience in the actual music business. This is how we do music.

Isn't it strange that guitarists never read traditional sheets, while even beginners are often able to play dozens of songs by heart, with everyone singing along? Learn that "guitarists' approach."

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

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 lessons 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.

Extensions

How to Spice Up and Sophisticate Your Chords

Unfortunately, most chords played on piano still sound bland. These lessons 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 lessons 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 lessons 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.

Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Coen.

Like virtually anybody, 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 138,000 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.

Piano Lingo 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.

What Fellow Piano Hackers Say:

The No-Sheets Approach

Piano Like A Guitarist

Have you ever seen your favorite artist look at sheet music?

Probably not, right?

That's because modern music isn't played from sheets.

Actually, since music is in fact a language, learning to read before you can speak seems completely backwards - whatever style we're talking about.

Guitarists get this. They first learn to strum chords - the equivalent of saying some words

99% of them keeps approaching music this way forever, learning how to build riffs, licks and even entire solos out of those fundamental musical "chunks" called Chords (& Patterns).

But while guitarists are having all the fun, piano is still stuck in this outdated system. 

Here we do things differently.

We teach our students how to understand the musical language and "say" (play) anything they want, using its foundational concepts - chords (music's "words") and patterns (music's "pronunciation") - just like guitarists.

You'll learn building blocks that can be re-used in all music - so you never waste time deciphering lines-and-dots on paper, blindly regurgitating, but always grow as a musician.

We call this Piano Hacking

It's the ultimate shortcut to finally actually sounding like you want - by ear.

And - beneficially - it's the actual language ALL pro musicians "speak" too. 

Not just piano-players. ALL musicians. 

So if you'd want to play something that's originally written for another instrument ... 

... or play together with other musicians ...

This is how we do music.

Don't settle for information-overload, learning stuff you're never going to use anyway or one-trick pony approaches that only teach you one song without any context. 

Start Hacking the Piano today to learn how music works and be able to apply what you learn on any tune you want - finally actually sounding like your musical heroes while cutting the time to learn new songs by 90%.
