Piano Lingo

The Chord Piano Academy

Learn to Play Anything by fundamentally understanding how music works...

& how to apply the chord-piano tactics in a hands-on way.


Music is a language

We Teach Freedom

Normal lessons teach how to to copy one song.
Here we do things differently.
We make our students understand the musical language, by teaching its foundational concepts.

Word-like building blocks that can then be re-used in all music - so you never waist time blindly imitating, but always grow as a musician.

We call this Hacking the Piano

On Piano Lingo, you'll not just learn how it works, but also how to do it.

the no-sheets approach

piano "like a guitarist"
- By Chords. By Ear. By Heart.

Have you ever seen your favorite artist look at sheets while playing? Exactly. This is not due to some fancy trick or "talent." It is simply "the guitarists' approach" of playing music - understanding its language and saying whatever you want - by heart.

Piano Lingo hosts the chord-piano concepts, -strategies and -tactics, as well as the practical, hands-on training for implementation.

Meet Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Coen.

I love to play the piano, sing, write, stay fit, eat, be healthy and take unconventional approaches and chances in life while teaching others how to do the same.
At age 17, I taught myself how to play piano. 4 years later I got accepted into the Conservatory of Amsterdam (major Pop-Piano / Vocals). Over the course of 19 years of playing, I've performed on stage extensively -both solo and in multiple bands- written and recorded with many different artists, became one of the top-5 Youtube piano teachers of the world and taught over 125,000 people worldwide how to play piano by chords.
