ESSENTIAL PIANO EXERCISES by Jerald Simon
100 Left Hand Patterns Every Piano Player Should Know by Jerald Simon

Both of these books were #1 New Releases on Amazon (amazon.com) and 100 Left Hand Patterns Every Piano Player Should Know is currently in the top 10 Best-Selling music theory books on Amazon (Essential Piano Exercises is a new release and will soon be on the best-selling music theory list as well).

Join Piano Students Worldwide Who Are Enrolled in this Course.

We currently have piano students from 18 different countries around the world enrolled in this course.

In this course you will learn how to play the same song 100 different ways. I encourage students to practice and learn how to play every song or exercise in every key signature and I personally show you how simple it is to start playing any song in any key signature. Once you can play the music as it is, I teach you how to arrange any song any way you want and play it in any key signature. After learning how to arrange music, I teach you how to start composing music of your own. Learn music theory, improvisation, and composition on the piano - the FUN way. I often refer to it as piano FUNdamentals (emphasis on the word FUN). It is the practical application of music theory. I will show you how to apply the music theory you learn to create music of your own by improvising, arranging, and composing music in any style you want. 

This course was created for both traditional and non-traditional piano players. Every exercise is written out and you will have the PDF sheet music to follow along with. The video lessons demonstrate exactly what I am playing on the piano and how I am playing it. Simply watch the video and see the overhead shot of my hands on the piano keys. With each exercise or song I teach, I count out the rhythm for you, tell you the key signature, teach you the names of the intervals, scales, chords, etc. as I play the music and walk you through how to do exactly what you see me do in the video. 

I tell students I want them to be able to read anything placed in front of them. But, I want them to be able to play music by ear, from a lead sheet, or from a fake book as well. I tell students once they learn how to play the music as written, I want them to arrange the music, improvise, and start composing music of their own. In this course we will also go over how to use software to compose music of your own and I even show you how you can start to market your music to others, if you choose to do so.

Read this 5 Star Review from a current member of the course...
“Essential Piano Exercises is in my opinion one of the best online piano resources /platforms out there. I have tried other various online piano learning platforms but I feel Essential Piano Exercises offers the best and most comprehensive foundation for learning the piano. It will teach you all scales ,chords, intervals and modes in all inversions, but more importantly, Jerald shows you how you can use this theory and knowledge and apply it to your own playing. You also learn a plethora of various left hand patterns and various styles which is incredibly fun. Jerald's fun and awesome practice ideas will keep you coming back to your piano and you will enjoy making progress with this fantastic course filled with piano techniques, styles, voicings, theory, exercises and improvisational ideas. Every piano player should try this course!" - Clark Kostryca

COOL SONGS 
composed by Jerald Simon
I compose COOL SONGS to help motivate and inspire piano students!
To listen to some of these COOL SONGS, simply scroll down to the section below titled: "Listen to a FEW Samples"
One of the suggestions I present in my FREE PDF book, "20 Ways to Motivate Teen Piano Students to Want to Play the Piano - the FUN Way!", is having students play along with fun accompaniment minus tracks (drums, guitars, keyboard synths, and other fun sound effects). This can be done at performance and practice speeds so students can practice their pieces and even perform with the minus tracks at piano recitals, concerts, and for family and friends. It's such a wonderful way to help the students have fun while practicing the piano as well! The COOL SONGS I have composed were all composed for piano students!
Parents praise COOL SONGS, piano teachers rave about them, and piano students can't wait to play them! Every piano recital instantly turns into a really COOL concert when students perform COOL SONGS.
Join thousands of piano students and piano teachers worldwide who already use these COOL SONGS in their piano lessons.

"Jerald Simon goes above and beyond in his program. Not only do you receive the sheet music and exercises, but you receive the background tracks and practice videos. The practice videos alone are worth its weight in gold as Jerald goes through and breaks down the pieces and exercises completely. It's like getting a free mini lesson! Jerald also includes several tempos in his background tracks so students can build up to full tempo. Jerald truly knows what it means to set up students for success! The pieces and tracks are fun and motivating. I highly recommend participating in his COOL SONGS Club. You won't be disappointed."
