Thanks for pinning this giveaway with other on how to learn to play the piano online.


  1. Would this work with a four year old? My daughter absolutely loves music and I learned a small amount as a child on how to play piano and would love for her to learn. Actually my husband and I do too.

    • It very well could! The videos are 5-15 minutes long and focus on one song or concept at a time – perfect for capturing those young attention spans. I’d suggest watching a video or two with your daughter (they’re free to watch on our website) to see how she likes Mr. Hoffman.

  2. Sue Chamberlin says:

    I am a 6th grade teacher and a single mom of two teenage boys. I am wanting to learn the piano, but I do not have the money to pay for lessons. I would love an opportunity to learn how to play. I love your messages Jill. Bless you!

  3. This really looks awesome and the price seems quite reasonable! I’ve taught my oldest, but I haven’t always been consistent as far as schedule. Since we home school, we get sibling interruptions quite regularly, too…

  4. Cherie Moss says:

    This would be a great for my family, since both of my girls could use their i-pads to view their lessons, we are definitely going to try out the free version. Thanks for posting!

  5. DeAnne Larsen says:

    Wow! This looks amazing and affordable. We could really use a program like this that allows you to maximize time together as a family.

  6. Jennifer S. says:

    My child’s piano teacher, our neighbor, died of cancer a year ago. I can’t afford traditional lessons. Winning this giveaway would fill our home with music again and be such a blessing. Please consider our family?

  7. I think this is wonderful! My daughter wants to learn how to play the piano so bad but Mondays are gymnastics, Tuesdays are 4H, Wednesdays are church nights and by Thursday we need an at home night. We just don’t have time to go drive to a teacher. Money is also an issue sometimes too. $15 is what we would pay for one lesson.

  8. Amy Smith says:

    We have a daughter who had to stop piano when we moved. This would be such a blessing to her! Hoffman Academy seems like the perfect fit for her.

  9. Wendy Dowling says:

    My daughter has a huge fascination with the piano. This would be such a blessing to our family.

  10. I just inherited my grandmothers piano that she use to give private lessons on. I have three children but my oldest is four and told us she would like to take piano lessons because she loves to sing and thinks it would be fun. I also would love to learn how to play. Thank you for the opportunity.

  11. I think it would fit our schedule and budget more easily thank traditional lessons.

  12. heather G says:

    This sounds like a great program, thanks for sharing! I have a 6 year old that would like to learn, so hope we win the giveaway.

  13. This sounds like just what we need! We are a busy family with teenagers in college and high school outside of the home and a dyslexic kiddo learning at her own pace from home, who is eager to learn to play, especially in a way that is at her own pace!

  14. Robyn Bischof says:

    I homeschool my family of 5 boys. My oldest is 15 and he attends a Christian High School. My other boys are home with me, and this would be so perfect for our family. Being a 1 income family and for each of my boys to learn an instrument can be costly. This would be such a blessing.

    Thank You!:)

  15. Having children with multiple Aries ranging from 4-15, it is difficult to get them where they want to be. With sports and lessons it all adds up. How nice to have the opportunity to learn how to play from the convenience of home.

  16. This would be so amazing since we are a retired military family of 4 living on a set budget. Our 2 boys would finally be able to learn playing the piano!!! My oldest has been asking for years to take lessons but we haven’t been able to get it set up.

  17. Cheri Mc Clain says:

    My 11 and 12 year ols boys were enjoying piano lessons until my husband was lid off. They stull like to pracice what they learnwd but getting back into it wth on line lessoan would be easier on pur budget. I love the idea of more flexiblity with on line learning.

  18. Natalie tomblin says:

    We are so busy with a family of 7! This would really help with time management.

  19. This is great idea. So flexible.

  20. Nancy Keys says:

    Would work well for me

  21. This would be a great fit for us! We are very busy and our 3 youngest (under 3) make it difficult to get out of the house for lessons. This would be so helpful!

  22. My daughter would love to learn piano. She is trying to teach herself, but a course would be helpful.

  23. kristy Strop says:

    We need this program!! We have a lovely Jessie French piano collecting dust…because no one plays in my family 🙁

  24. I love this what a fantastic idea! Just perfect for our busy family.

  25. Yes, we would love to try this. My son is drummer student who has expressed interest in learning piano! He has been playing scales o is own.

  26. Dominique Green-Njoku says:

    Our twins want to learn piano and I’ve tried with little success. This seems like a convenient way to teach and learn and I’d love to try it.

  27. My son so badly wants to take lesson but it currently does not fit into our budget. However this most likely could. Plus Christmas is coming and a keyboard could be an amazing gift.

  28. Jenifer Nelson says:

    My son would love this. He has been trying to teach himself on a large keyboard we bought at a garage sale– he has tried YouTube videos but it’s hit or miss. With my 2 boys on traveling soccer teams, piano lessons are almost impossible with practice/games 4-7days a week. My 3yr tries to play too & mimic her brother so she would probably enjoy this as well.

  29. Chelsi Phillips says:

    This would be an amazing thing for my oldest who is in love with the piano, given to us by his great grandmother. He struggles in reading and writting but has a unstoppable drive to learn how to play. I know how to play at a entry level, so this would also help this homeschooling mama of 5 get some practice in and refresh my skills along side him.

  30. Lacey Winfrey says:

    This would be perfect for my family! My four year old was just gifted a keyboard yesterday and is so excited to learn to play. I am a teacher and with a four year old and a special needs 1 year old we haven’t been able to work out all the logistics of taking lessons at this point in time. This would definitely be helpful and appreciated!!

  31. Desiree Dean says:

    What a wonderful program. We are a homeschooling family and I have 2 of my children that are asking to learn to play. I was unsure about lessons because they are costly. Thank YOU for sharing, this may be an option!! God Bless!

  32. Congrats to whoever won!

  33. Tamara Collett says:

    My daughter has always wanted to play the piano, but tgere seems to be no time in our schedule. I would like to work it in as part of our homeschool lessons, without having to leave our home.
