Play Music with Freedom

Piano Lessons for Music-Loving Adults

Amy, a classical pianist, always wished she could sit down at the piano and play her favorite songs by ear. Amy spent years studying ear-training at the collegiate level. She could sight-sing melodies and transcribe rhythms. But harmonic progressions remained out of reach.

She began to think this couldn’t be taught. But then, she joined popMATICS. Amy started studying in the context of real songs. She began to hear chord colors and bass lines. Each song Amy learned was helping her learn the next.

Amy is finally on a path toward achieving her goal of sitting down at the piano and playing any song that comes to mind, without relying on sheet music. And she is enjoying the process more than ever before. Amy recently told us, “I wish they would teach harmonic ear-training like this in college! Each step in approaching this goal is more clear, exciting, and rewarding than what I experienced in college.”

So what exactly is popMATICS?

popMATICS is a comprehensive musical curriculum that focuses on all the skills you need to become a musician. You won’t get stuck wading through sheet music, or watching YouTube tutorials, to painfully master songs note-by-note. 

Instead, you will be able to sit down and enjoy the piano. Play along with your favorite songs easily, or relax and improvise. We encourage both from Day 1. (We use sheet music too, we just don’t want you to be limited by what’s on the page.)

Our online group lessons provide a premium experience at an affordable rate. And there are zero scheduling hassles for you if something comes up last minute.

  • If you can’t make your normal class time, come to a different one.
  • Or come multiple times per week to stay motivated and accelerate your learning. All at no extra cost! 

You’ll be surrounded by a community of supportive musicians with similar goals. Learning the piano doesn’t have to be a lonely journey.

I couldn't imagine having had a different teacher - as I'm more than certain my interest in music and the piano would have faded long ago . Your abilities to connect with and cater to your students’ needs are a genuine gift. I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again - thank you for teaching me to love music.

Tony, you inspire me to be a better piano player. You’ve always been a great teacher and a great friend. you make learning the piano easy with your explanations. Your teaching style is fun and exciting. I like that I don’t have to be perfect around you. Just realistic.
