Piano Lingo

by Piano Couture

The Pop Piano Academy

Learn to Play Anything, without needing sheets, by fundamentally understanding how music works

Piano By Chords. By Ear. By Heart.


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.

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

the no-sheets approach

piano "like a guitarist"

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

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.

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

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

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

Earn points, grow levels and unlock extra course-modules, bonus lessons & extras.

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 15 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 120,000 people worldwide how to play piano.
