You have a dream. A goal. You want to be able to use the piano to express yourself. To play anything you want to play.
Accomplishing this requires a few things: understanding, practice, discipline and a clear path to follow. A plan that tells you exactly what to do and when to do it.
Without it, the process can be overwhelming.
Hack the Piano, its brand new 6-week chord piano bootcamp and Piano Lingo’s feature set provide this support – showing, guiding, holding you accountable and making sure you actually follow through.
They’ll fast-track your growth and save you years of frustrating trial and error.
Like any language, music is built from word-like blocks called “chords.”
Hack the Piano’s building block approach will teach you to how to use music’s universal concepts that are the foundation of all music
Whether you’re just starting out and don’t know a “c” from a “b,” want to make your playing sound more mature by choosing more interesting voicings & broken-up patterns, or are ready to start adding fancy extensions and licks, Hack the Piano will help you:
Understanding music means freedom – being able to paint your own musical canvas, playing anything you want – exactly like all contemporary musicians. Whether that is copying what someone else has played, or writing your very own music.
The only aid you’d ever want to use – if any – are convenient chord-sheets.
Regular lessons teach how to copy one song. Hack the Piano does things a little different. It teaches you the concepts behind the music.
Fundamentals that can be re-used in all music – so you never waist time blindly imitating, but always grow as a musician.
All its lessons work on any device, anytime, from anywhere.
Part of Chord Piano Formula
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 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 needing any piano lessons or read a single sheet.
The new and unique 8-week online “Chord Piano BootCamp” revolves around six core modules, weekly online training sessions, workshops and coaching calls with Coen, plus worksheets, exercises and assignments that make you dive deep and fly through the entire Hack the Piano curriculum.
During these eight weeks you are expected to do both preparation (mostly reading) as well as 10-30 minutes of practice every day, depending on your skill level.
Perfect as an overview-, introduction- or even a recap of the Hack the Piano methodology, this Program is suited for anybody, stepping in at any level, to greatly enhance your progress and insights of the world of chord-piano
The online companion course is essentially a tightly compressed version the Hack the Piano method. Each module goes into one of its six main pillars: Musical structures, chords, rhythms & patterns, extensions, embellishments, (re-)harmonization
As this is an intensive bootcamp, 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.
Video workshops and instruction videos go over each of the main piano hacking subjects.
In the live coaching calls Coen answers any question you might have. Missed a session? Simply watch the recorded version.
Whether you are more of a beginner to get an intensive overview-introduction out of this (before going over the full Hack the Piano program yourself) or a more advanced player, reviewing and diving deep into chord-piano practice and theory, this scalable BootCamp will boost any player's progress.
