Learn & Master Piano Review

As we already mentioned, we are completely sold on Learn & Master Piano’s guru, Will Barrow, as he has the experience and education to back up his teaching. Learning to play piano via the DVDs, CDs, jam tracks, and workbook provides help for any type of learner – visual, audio, or tactile. In addition to the amount of information included, the quality of the information is absolutely astounding, with lessons and tips helpful for a pianist at any level.

Learn & Master Piano begins with the DVDs, providing a workshop setting that teaches by example as well as explanation. You are able to get straight to playing popular songs, covering subjects like keyboard layout, chord progressions, right and left hand exercises, music theory, and listening skills. In addition, the Jam-Along tracks allow you to hone your skills, playing at your own pace as you learn gradually. You can even set the Jam-Along tracks to play as your accompanist while you invent your own piano solos.

Finally, the workbook provides the opportunity to focus on music theory, providing pictures and music that you can practice as long as you intend to improve. With information on a number of genres, like classical, ragtime, pop, and much more, the Learn & Master Piano course really does provide a limitless amount of access to piano lessons at a relatively reasonable price considering the cost of in-person lessons. With the physical version and the website features, Learn & Master Piano contains the most comprehensive quality piano program out there, and we recommend Learn & Master Piano to anyone who is seriously interested in either learning to play piano or in stepping up their skills.

Detailed Ratings

Pros
Learn & Master Piano is suitable for pianists of any level, from beginner to professional, although children should be 8 or older before attempting to learn through this program.

Information can be accessed on a MAC or PC.

Although Learn & Master Piano is pricey at $249 for the physical version, it is now being offered for just $199. Also, manufacturers offer a payment plan (up to 4 payments) if you’re unable to pay for the product up-front.

Learn & Master Piano comes with a 60-day no questions asked money-back guarantee.

Course creator Will Barrow is a Grammy Award-winning composer, recording artist, singer-songwriter, and educator.

Online features really supplement the teaching in the DVDs and CDs, providing an interactive portion to Learn & Master Piano.
Cons
The physical version of Learn & Master Piano by Will Barrow does cost $249 + shipping & handling, which is steep compared to similar products out there (although it’s currently on sale for $199).

There is no downloadable version of this product, so you are required to purchase the physical version if you’re interested in Learn & Master Piano.

Learn and Master Piano

I love the play along CD's where I can totally feel that I’m playing with an orchestra. It made learning how to play the piano faster and fun. You might also want to visit this Learn and Master Piano page for more reviews and articles on how to play the piano.
