What Sets Chord Piano Formula Apart From Any Other Program?

01 | Learn Piano Without Sheets

Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to read sheets to play piano. Think of guitarists. They learn to understand chords - music's building blocks. Piano and guitar are in fact very similar. Chord Piano Formula teaches piano using this "guitarists' approach" - you won't need sheets.

02 | Work A game

Even though music might already be the coolest thing ever, it still requires discipline to learn. Chord Piano Formula eases that pain, making learning fun by being set up like a game. Grow levels by acquiring eXPerience- & Ability Points completing lessons, exercises and passing quizzes to earn badges, certificates and unlock cool extras.

03 | Made By conservatory-graduated, performing professionals

The Hack the Piano methodology is based on years of experience from within the field. Made by actual musicians who have been doing this for a living for decades. This is how we do music. In Chord Piano Formula we add that level of unprecedented guidance to help you learn the language of music.

04 | 120,000+ Students from all over the world

There’s a reason this program is so popular. Our strategies work across all styles of music and for musicians at virtually every stage of their journey.

05 | Unmatched guidance and help

Next to a carefully planned out, comprehensive, step-by-step online course plan, the 8-week BootCamp adds coaching calls, workshops, accountability, feedback, exercises and assignment-grading. It's the closest you'll get to actual private lessons from a professional musician.

06 | 100% Money back guarantee

We’ve always backed our programs with a 100% satisfaction money-back guarantee. So you can rest assured that your investment is safe with us.

How Does It Work?

Whatever you wish to play - with scalable lessons, exercises & assignments; select your own music and add-on courses to personalize your journey; plus accountability built right into its 8-week BootCamp- Chord Piano Formula shows you exactly what to do when. It guides you every step of the way so you can focus on what you want to learn in the fastest, most convenient way possible

Clarity

Every week you'll receive an email with detailed instructions + link to the online course, where you'll find that week's lesson, exercises, assignment and workshops (2 per week).

Personalization

During the week, you'll practice your newfound skills using the scalable exercises and dive deeper into the main lesson's subjects, applying them in self-picked add-on course modules.

Guidance

At the end of the week, you turn in your assignment to have it graded, receive feedback and collect your points to unlock custom extras - all using music of your own choosing.

Training

Twelve, 90-minute workshops with demonstrations, exercises and hands-on musical breakdowns - all completely scalable - is where you'll get your hands dirty and mind spinning with all the new musical ideas.

What is Included?

Chord Piano Formula consists out of 6 core modules that each break down one of music’s 6 layers plus 28 add-on courses that allow for a deeper dive into the subjects of your choice. All course materials - including workshops, streaming videos, audios, transcripts, handouts and add-on modules - are within the online student environment.

Chord Piano BootCamp

The Master Course

Dedicated Online Course

The Formula's master-course guides you, hands-on, through each of music's six layers: musical structures, chords & voicings, rhythms & patterns, extensions, embellishments, (re-)harmonization.

Assignments

As this is an intensive training program, you're expected to put in some work yourself. Complete assignments, 10-30 minutes of study time per day and prep reading for the next lesson.

Weekly Workshop Sessions

12 full 1 hour+ workshops (16hrs total) go into each of the main piano-hacking layers in a hands-on matter.
In the coaching calls Coen answers any question you might have.

Fast-Track Your Growth

Whether you are more of a beginner to get an intensive overview-introduction, or a more advanced player, reviewing and diving deep into chord-piano practice and theory, this scalable program will boost any player's progress.

5/5
"The advantage the BootCamp afforded me was a crash course on the concepts, tools, rules of thumb, and “tricks of the trade” of pop piano that I can begin to apply on my path forward. A “normal” process would not have allowed me to see that path forward as Coen laid out in a comprehensive manner and yet a very short period of time."

"This is most likely to be the best that you'll find when it comes to learning how to play the piano. I've been taught classically for over 10 yrs now but was jealous in seeing a guitarist being able to pick up songs very easily, this program will enable you to that. It's top notch."

Coen Modder

Roland-featured author/instructor
Founder of Piano Couture & Piano Lingo
Creator of the Hack the Piano Method

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 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 of the world and taught over 120,000 people worldwide how to play piano.

Hack the Piano is the backbone-method of all my teaching.
It's the definitive guide to learn how I accomplished all of the above without ever reading a single sheet.

Chord Piano Formula is Hack the Piano evolved into a fully guided, Premium Online Training Program.

"Coen teaches in a manner easy to understand that makes the student eager to learn more... I love that I get to choose which music I want to learn/play... No matter the reason you are coming to the piano this is the program you want to take."
