Why This Piano Training Is Different

My name is Tim Gross, and I've made my living playing keyboards for the last 30+ years, I currently tour the country with Grammy award-winning artist Rick Springfield (who sang "Jessie's Girl" along with 16 other top-40 hits). Most of what I learned taking piano lessons ended up being useless to me for what I wanted to do.  (So I'm not going to show you that stuff, heh.) In my line of work I need to learn songs quickly.

Here's some beginning training of the quickest way to learn piano. Watch the two videos below on this page to learn more about piano in 15 minutes than some beginning students learn taking months of lessons. You'll also learn my "Number System" that simplifies everything for you.

Here's Part 1:

Here's Part 2 Below:

(Covers adding your left hand, and how to use the Number System
to quickly learn lots of songs: Putting it all together.)


Thanks for watching. I hope you're excited about the power of learning piano through this "Number System" instead of the slow, painful way most people are used to.

I've really enjoyed creating these piano training videos... I've been on stage playing keyboards over 7,000 hours playing all kinds of music, and a lot of what I do the most can be learned quicker and easier than most beginning piano players would ever imagine.

Just promise after I teach you all my secrets that you don't steal my gigs. 🙂

One final thing: I'm not claiming that you can become a world-class piano player overnight (duh!) but many many people have said they've learned more from the 17 minutes of the initial 2 videos than they did in a year of taking regular piano lessons, that everything finally made sense, that it finally "clicked".

With that being said, there's a factor called "finger memory" that requires repetition to get used to changing chords and notes comfortably... with this training you'll be learning the most important things to commit to that "finger memory" instead of the silly stuff lots of piano teachers make you learn that can't be applied to anything else.

  1. A few months ago, I knew nothing about playing the piano.

    Then I read this: learn piano for beginners and now I play many popular songs perfectly by ear even though I had never learned an instrument before.

    It’s easier than you think to master the piano if you know these shortcuts.

  2. Dear Teacher of all times,

    I am totally moved by your ingenuity, sincerity at sharing and love for what helps humanity and the world a better place. It takes a good heart to share an idea capable of improving lives. Since you have decided to be selfless, I have asked God almighty to increase your generational fortunes for ever and ever…….Rev. Black Diamond

  3. I watched the two videos and there was mention of a PDF file. I don’t have a piano yet but was wondering if I can download the PDF for the future. I would like to have a little background even before I have a piano. I am a drummer who wants to learn some piano.

    • Absolutely you can download the PDF for later, just put in your name/email to get the free login/access for that. 🙂

  4. wow! sir your beautifully laid-out tutorial was just extra ordinary, so simple and has made me have a skill i failed to have over a month just within 30min. Thanks alot.
    however, please i would like to understand more about the Major scale and the system you talked about i.e, 3keys between the 1st and 3rd finger and 2keys between the 3rd and 5th finger if you are playing a MAJOR. I tried it and it worked but why i tried playing C D E F G A B C, i found out that only 2keys a found in-between the 1st and 3rd fingers if im sounding the D cord. why is it so sir?

    • If you are playing a D chord with only 2 notes between the 1 and 3 notes, you are playing a D-minor chord. D-Major the 3 note is a half step higher, D-F#-A. You can get used to hearing the difference between Major chords (happy sounding) and minor chords (sad sounding.) Hope that helps.

  5. I am very interested in joining your site but am concerned about security. My iPad tells me that it is not a secure site.

    • There’s nothing to worry about regarding security. I THINK you’re talking about the difference between a website URL https:// (called “secure”) and http:// (which is “normal”) https:// URLs are only needed if there’s sensitive information like credit cards being entered. That’s not needed when you’re just watching piano lessons :-), no credit card information or any other “sensitive data” is stored on PianoGenius.com, so that’s not needed. Hope that helps.

    • I put together some links to keyboards I like >> here, FYI practically speaking a 76-key keyboard is just as useful as an 88, because you simply never play the very very top and bottom notes of a piano. There are of course many other good digital keyboards as well, but I feel those are good buys for the different price points.

  6. i’m 84 and not only music illiterate but also computer illiterate. do I get books or dvds; so I can learn slowly? also, how about costs?

    • Paul, to get all the 10 free videos just enter your email on this page and you’ll get a link to them, that should help you quite a bit.

  7. Hi Tim!
    I keep playing guitar but piano was never made as simple and easy as you did in instant piano genius video’s.

    I had watched piano video’s earlier too but nothing like these.
    You explain it in such a simple and easy way to remember.

    I could never understand Maj and Minor chords and progressions too.
    I always used to biheart them ( mug it up)
    But your video’s have changed it all.


  8. Speaking of genius.You are easily one in my opinion.Your way of teaching to play the piano is so comprehensive and effective. I’ve learnt a lot from you in just minutes. Your videos are labelled as the best “in my book” i`ve ever come across in terms of tuition.

    THANKS!!! ..and continue the good work.

  9. I have tried several other YouTube videos because I want to learn online piano lessons, but they take off too fast or are not as learner friendly. Your videos are far better 🙂

  10. I salute your excellence in teaching piano. I used to combed through a lot of DVD products and on the internet in an attempt to learn piano in an easy way but to no avail. Thank God I accidentally found your free videos on the intertet. Gone were those days when I used to learn piano as if I’m learning rocket science, now it just easy and fun learning to play piano with your program. Because of the quality of your teaching I quickly enrolled as a member of pianogenius but I had to cancel my membership for reasons beyond my control. But I can’t wait 2 get back on your program again. Right here in Africa your training is working for me.
    Tim to me you are the boss of them all!

  11. I’ve just come upon your videos today for the first time and very intrigued by your teaching method. Maybe even hopeful you may be able to help me? I’m classically trained since young via forced curriculum but EXTREMELY frustrated over never being able to play music I hear…only what I can read. I feel I prisoner and have lost my joy for playing though I love piano. I will never forget the joy of my experiences in New York Carnage Hall in my youth but now age 57 I long to play for shear enjoyment at my own will what ever song comes to my mind.
    I’ve tried many play by ear methods only to find myself longing for sheet music as is faster and easier. End result is closing my piano and walking away saddened at not accomplishing my goal to play by ear. My question to you is for advice to help deal with feeling boxed in surrounded by notes and traditional methods as if trapped by many years and family generations of traditional forced curriculum training.
    Thank You for offering a simpler alternative method bringing joy to the hearts and in the lives of many who wish to make a joyful noise creating beautiful music for shear pleasure. TY

    • The way I play isn’t completely “by ear”, I usually start with a basic chord chart, or use the *basic* info from sheet music without actually going to the trouble to play it note by note. For me it cuts down the effort to play a song by 90%. I have a whole Module on “Crash Course On Sheet Music” but it’s not about learning to play note for note, it’s how to grab the basic info you need to then play it in your own way. Did you get access to the 10 free videos yet? It’s just a simple matter of applying those types of simple playing to different songs… Be sure to check it out, because I think you’re much, much closer to being able to play how you want than you think.

  12. I’m 52 years old. I love piano. But due to my hectic life I dont have the chance to take up piano lesson. Do you think I can catch at my age? Thx

  13. Knowing a bit of drums, i started tottaly “playing” some keyboards.Tim’s videos are great, easy to watch and full of tips.From my few emails with the suppoort of Pianogenius, i only have to say, that they are great,very supportive and generous sharing knowledge, videos and help.! Pianogenius is a surprise..!!

    • Yes, you can get started with more by just subscribing on this page with your email (it doesn’t cost anything) and you’ll get access to 10 piano lesson videos.

    • Definitely, a good percentage of people who go on to become Piano Genius members have no previous experience playing the piano.

  14. Thanks a lot for sharing your blessings sir as one of the most professional keyboard player.. your video thought me a lot and I really appreciate sir… Now I learn a lot and I will watch it over and over to be a prof. keyboard player too..God Bless and More videos to come…Merry christmas…

  15. I’m just beginning my piano lessons and I must say that I feel blessed having the opportunity to access the invaluable insights that you share on this platform. I really I’m grateful and would like to say keep these amazing lessons coming with this touch of uncommon simplicity. Thanks.

  16. Hi TIM,
    i recently came across the major scale formula which is WWHWWWH . please will this also be true for a minor scale (WWHWHWW) formula , if not is there a formula for that too and what will it be .

    • Using W=Whole Step and H=Half Step, the “formula” for minor scales is WHWWHWW, It’s easiest to see in the key of A-minor because it’s all white note: A B C D E F G A

  17. Thank you for sharing your expertise. I thought I have lost my biggest desire to learn to play piano but not when I’ve seen your videos. Definitely a big help…almost crystal clear learning the basics.. Big thanks from here..

  18. i’m not amusic player, even i only man with a bored life, but i keep look for something that can make me a very little happy by listening music sounds…so i decide to eksplore what the music is.. with little hope i can play a music instrument…instrument that stranger for me..And I GET it ….! what such easiest way to fill my sadness with these lessonss.. THANK YOU

  19. Thanks for the fantastic videos.. Really helped! Would like to learn melodies with accompanying chords and if there’s a lesson on that? Not much of a singer hence melodies would help complete a song. Thanks again!

  20. I’m 66yrs young, and I took lessons when I was in my teens. But,
    I stopped. Now with you method I’ve returned, and at last feel I
    get what I want out of this, just simply play music and have fun
    doing it.

    • Yay, great to hear Leon! It’s sad that the standard way of teaching piano is a forced curriculum that isn’t as enjoyable as it could be and that turns many people off to playing piano completely. Glad you’re playing what you want now. 🙂

  21. I really wanted to learn how to play piano and this helped me alot. Thankul that there are still people who share their knowledge and talent and not asking much in return. 🙂 Godspeed!

  22. nice and way more cheap than train to other teacher wich it will make you pay more than 400 $ a year if you’re on indonesia

  23. Just inherited my great great great grandfather’s ship organ. And feel totally comfortable with every chord…wonderful

  24. As a guitar player (beginner) I learned some theory so I recognize how Maj7 chords are built using the 1,3,5,7, Min7: 1, b3,5,b7, etc. Your lessons make perfect sense in translating that same theory the way I learned it for guitar into keyboard. You explained it exactly how I needed to hear it in order for it to make sense. People should realize that the numbering system you use is “for real” in the sense that musicians will commonly refer to the “5” or the “1” as a reference to the 5th, or 1st (respectively) note/chord/diad, etc. in the Major scale. Good Stuff!

  25. You re really a genius. True to words, i have learnt so much more in a few days just watching your videos than i have done over a few months of learning the piano. Its unbelieveable that all these videos are free! Thank you so much. May God bless you real good.

  26. Educating, informing and somehow, entertaining. Your tutorial wiped out all apprehension and fear in figuring out the number system. Thanx a million, and keep up the good work.

  27. Don’t know if you believe in God or not but you and your simplicity are an answer to prayer. Thank you so much! I am a math/science teacher with two musically gifted kids and a husband who plays acoustic guitar. For years all I could do was stare and smile while everyone else sang their hearts out. I have learned 3 worship songs in 1 week and will be practicing them for our “open mic” night at church! Whoohoo! May you be blessed 100 fold the way you have blessed!

  28. Very encouraging; makes sense, especially for those who just want to sit down and play for relaxation and entertainment.
