I started teaching my daughters how to play piano years ago, but we had a bumpy start. At first, it wasn’t easy doing the traditional book. Then I found some great online piano lessons a couple of years ago that are Free! I was surprised by how much my daughters loved the lessons, and how much easier they made teaching. However, just when my girls were really starting to get the hang of it, we took a short, that become an extended break, and turned into almost a year off.

I wanted to start their piano lessons again, but I was afraid that they wouldn’t remember anything. Luckily, I started up again with the free Hoffman Academy online piano lessons, and my daughters picked up right where we left off.
Free Online Piano Lessons
My eldest daughter did surprisingly good and was still able to name all the notes of the keys. Thanks to the online piano lessons she was playing a song right away. We were able to skip the first half of the lessons.
I really like Mr. Hoffman’s method and the fact that I’m not really the one teaching. It takes the time and pressure off of me, and ensures that my girls learn from the a master. Mr.Hoffman has tons unique games and ways of introducing the sounds and notes of the piano. And Audrey and Emma love listening to his stories and playing along.
Learn to Play the Piano
The materials that go along with the lessons are a must. They reinforce the music that the children are playing and help them learn to read musical notation. All the video lessons are free, and there is only a small fee for the unit materials. It is such a minimal fee, and really worth it!
I had Audrey review the musical alphabet with a fun worksheet from his materials and also write the beats of the song that she played in her video lesson.
The exciting part is, now that Audrey is older, I can set up the video lesson for her and let her learn on her own. It won’t take me any time to do the lessons. I just scheduled it into her daily calendar and will be continuing the lessons from now on without interrupting my regular schedule!
