Classical training is more than learning classical music.
It trains the skills you need to play all styles and levels of music.
This skill and knowledge is exactlywhat you need to communicate your ideas and emotions through the piano.
Many people make the mistake that learning piano is about pressing the right keys. Relying on apps, tutorials or lessons that focusing on learning to play certain notes or chords.
The truth is, you must train technique refine foundational skills to...
Play with speed, fluency and accuracy
Have confidence with note reading
Have coordination between the hands
Communicate and express your emotions and ideas through your music
Utilize the body without tension and stiff movements
Train motivation—yes, practice strategies and motivation are trained!
Have Quality over Quantity—learning more pieces does not equal more skill
You need to train your technique if:
You learn piece after piece, but never sound musical like you should
Reading notes feels totally unnatural (you should be able to read notes as easily as reading this text)
Your hands and arms can't seem to work together, or independently
You know that music should express emotion, but you aren't sure how to make that come out.
The Piano Foundation Formula is the only roadmap you need to make MUSIC with skill playing the piano. Classical training allows you to build the tools you need to make music that only you can.

I meet people who avoid classical training because they think it will be too hard. But the truth is...
Proper training makes it easier
There’s a reason your music doesn't sound the way you feel it should.
I’ve worked with many students who have worked for years with teachers or with apps, thinking they are making it easier by not learning the skills.
But our bodies and minds are perfectly designed for the speed, intricacy, expression on the piano. Once you develop what movements to train, you have what you need to build your vocabulary of sound.

“The way this course was conducted was fabulous. Completely engaging and inclusive. Incredibly well thought out and structured empowering the student the find their own level and challenges. A course I would be very pleased to recommend to any pianist looking to put in place a solid well informed foundation that will have a positive effect on their future musical endeavors.”

“I think Carmen did an excellent job and the amount of value I took away for the price was amazing. I had been paying $165 USD a month for piano lessons earlier this year and learned pretty much nothing besides playing pieces out of Method books and I felt I could do that on my own. The information shared with us in this course was never mentioned to me and I can't express how grateful I am to have found Carmen's course on Instagram.”
