The Learn & Master Piano Home School Edition is a Complete 2-Year Piano Curriculum Designed for Home Study. It consists of 14 professionally produced DVDs, 5 Play-Along CDs, a 100+ page lesson book, and a free online student support site. Video Demonstration The fourteen DVDs contained in Learn & Master Piano are really the heart of this course. Each lesson is clearly explained and demonstrated, so your students know exactly what and how to practice. The Teacher's Resource DVD in this Home School Edition allows you to keep the student on track even if you don't know music yourself. Printed Materials The Learn & Master Piano Lesson Workbook contains all of the songs and exercises demonstrated in the video lessons, so your students can continue practicing at their own pace for as long as they need, before moving on to the next lesson. The 68-page Teacher's Guide gets you prepared for each of your child's lessons. The Scope-and-Sequence breaks down the 2 full years of instruction (36 weeks each) so you have a complete course overview. Play-Along CDs This is where the fun comes in! These five CDs allow you to "play along" with an actual band, using the very same songs you'll be learning in your lessons. There's no better way to learn than by playing, and there's no way to play that's more fun than jamming with a band. You'll be amazed at how much fun this makes your practice time! Your friends and family will be impressed, too, at how soon you are playing such beautiful music. Professional Instruction Learn & Master Piano gives you a rare opportunity to study from a real pro. Our instructor is Grammy-winning pianist, Will Barrow. Mr. Barrow is not only a truly masterful player with a very impressive bio, but also an incredibly talented teacher and communicator. You won't find a better piano instructor anywhere, and we are honored to have him as part of our team.

Format: DVD-ROM
The title of this product is learn and MASTER piano. Mastery would indicate reaching the highest skill level. But that is not what this dvd course provides. Instead, it gives the student some basic information on how chords are formed, how to count beats, locating minor keys, etc.
My biggest disappointment is that there is NO instruction on music reading. The instructor (Will Barrows) acknowledges that the student can do that on his own. Umm, isn't that what most of us want to learn and master? How to sit down to a piece of music to READ and play it?

Another bone to pick is that Will Barrows indicates that he is a Christian in his welcome letter and yet some of his
music choices are far from Christian - particularly a Beatles tune and riff he teaches in lesson 14 which references Hotel California. There are SO many other nice songs that could have been used to obtain neutrality. But since I am a Christian and utilizing this "homeschool" course for my kids, I find the music choices very unfavorable. But I discovered these things too late to get my money back.

On the positive side, the background visuals are kind of nice and the camera angles are helpful, with some video tricks to highlight certain keys, chords and so forth. And the instructor is pleasant enough, easy to listen to and what he does teach, he at least teaches it clearly. My kids are playing music, but not reading it. I bought the course because I wanted them to learn and MASTER the piano. And in my book, mastery comes with actual music reading ability.
