Overview of the PianoForAll Program
PianoForAll is a comprehensive program that provides you over 200 lessons for learning how to play the piano. From the basics of a keyboard to playing like a pro, everything you need to know can be found in these self-taught lessons. The program is separated into 10 training modules that are put together in a strategic sequence for gradual learning. For example, one module covers the basics of hand positions to play the blues, and the next module builds off of that.
The first four modules provide you with the foundation of the program that will be used for all of the training modules moving forward. All of the modules also come with detailed instructions, as well as video and audio lessons. You’ll also find plenty of photos, diagrams and examples to help you implement the techniques you learn.
Here’s a quick breakdown of what you can expect from the 10 training modules:
Book 1: Party Time/Play By Ear / Rhythm Piano (83 topics)
- Getting to know the keyboard
- The key to playing piano instantly – CHORDS
- Practice progressions
In the first training module, you receive the basic information needed to use this program and learning the piano. As such, it teaches you the different parts of a keyboard, the rhythms, chords, white keys and the black keys, the same 12 notes at higher and lower pitches, and so much more. You’ll find plenty of diagrams in this module as well that show you what hand and finger to use for the different keys. It’s basically your beginners guide all wrapped into one.
Book 2: Blues and Rock n’ Roll

Book 7: Advanced Blues and Fake Stride
- Instant transposer instructions + chart
- Advanced blues music diagrams
- Different riffs
In this training module, you learn how to add in right-hand chords when you’re playing the blues. For example, it teaches you about the sevenths and inversions, off-on rhythms and much more, so you can advance your blues-playing to the next level.
Book 8: Taming the Classics
- Getting to know the keyboard patterns
- Key signatures
This is where you learn how to play more advanced songs. It comes with tutorials that are highly based on what you’ve learned from the first module, but that have a few extra steps added in so you can enhance your skills and process to the next level.
Book 9: Speed Learning
- Memorizing the scales and arpeggios
- Practice routine in the key of C
- Other tone scales
In this training module, you learn simple tips and techniques for playing the piano faster and exercises for doing so.

For example, you learn how to connect your keyboards to the computer and the different types of keyboards available on the market.

Frequently Asked Questions
As mentioned previously, PianoForAll is a digital program so there isn’t a hardcopy, nor will you be able to find it in a physical store location. Instead, the program is sold exclusively on the official website and all of the content is digital and stored right on your personal tech devices, such as your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. However, you can always download and print off the written guides you have your very own personal hardcopy.
The program and lessons have been designed for all ages, so anyone can learn how to play the piano. Depending on the age of the child, you may have to assist them with understanding the lesson by reading the steps for them. Otherwise, the video and audio lessons make it easy for people of all ages to sign in and start practicing all on their own.
No. The eBooks (training modules) have the video and audio files embedded into them so that they can be viewed offline. However, you will need an active internet connection at the beginning so that you can access and download the content for offline use.
The lessons come with written, audio and video descriptions, directions and guidance, so it’s really easy to learn what you should be doing in each lesson. You don’t need any tests either, as you work at your own pace. Therefore, you only progress onto the next lesson/level when you have mastered the one you’re working on.
Either a piano or a keyboard will work with this program and the lessons provided. However, if you are going to be using a keyboard, you will want to use one that has at least 61 keys (the standard 88 keys is recommended) and that has a ‘sustain pedal’ option as there are lessons on using that setting.
