  • …attending your course is the best decision that I have ever made in my piano playing journey.…you taught me that anything is possible with the right tools in place!”

Kevin Y., USA

  • I learned so much...that has to do with playing the piano before even playing the piano. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life, not just music.”

  • 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.”

Edith L., USA

  • 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.”

  • I’ve never heard someone articulate so well how neuroscience, mental health, our body mechanics and the daily habits we lay out in the brain will lay the foundation for success.”

  • I benefitted a lot in different aspects... I really recommend... even for the professionals!”

    Sherry E.,

  • For 20 years I have wanted to develop my piano skills but never knew what to do. I became aware of Carmen’s course and was wary of learning online... I was surprised by how engaged I was in the online lessons, how motivated I was to learn (I woke up an hour early each day to fit it in!), and the workbook was really helpful and easy to follow too.

    As a piano teacher of beginner students, I have also really benefited from being a student again and have incorporated some of what I have learned into my teaching.”

    Julia M., United Kingdom
  • I loved how systematic your approach is. My teachers that I have had do not have systems in place to teach in a logical way—as a kid and into university I felt really lost and didn't really understand what I was suppose to do, and what the next step was, or even if I had any progress/milestones.... I really appreciated this and have incorporated it into my private studio lessons. I can see a huge shift in my students!”

  • What I really liked was the way that things were broken down... to a very basic level, with detailed explanation, and then put together a bit later so you could really see the building blocks that you’d put together...”

  • Awesome! I can’t believe after 10 years of classical training that I didn’t get this information. I'm so glad I’m taking these lessons.”

Cynthia W., USA

  • I’m a 52 year old pianist, who mostly plays for funerals, or as an emergency fill-in church musician. Even though I've played for decades, I've never been a comfortable performer, and it takes me forever to learn to play a new piece accurately.

In just a few weeks, Carmen has managed to show me how to revamp my basic motions in ways that make playing feel much more comfortable and relaxed, which in turn is making me a noticeably more reliable player. I can't wait to see what happens as the new ways become habit!”

Bruce W., USA

  • I have learned so much from this course. It was exactly what I was looking for. I performed professionally as ragtime/jazz pianist/keyboard player for many years. You can spend years practicing exercises without really accomplishing much if you don't understand what you are supposed to be learning. In 8 modules, this course lays everything out in a nutshell.

Ollie, Canada

  • I would never think that getting back to basics would be so enlightening and challenging at the same time (in a good way)!”

Heidi M., Canada

  • Carmens techniques were new to me even though I have years of training under RCM and other conservatories. The piano course was exactly what I was looking for!

The techniques that Carmen shares are truly foundational to become a better pianist! The material covers so much and is laid out in a truly comprehensive way. Thank you for this wonderful course!

Michael L., USA

  • Wow! So much material. This is the real deal. Thank you 100x ’s for the well thought out and planned lessons. Just looking at module 2 is so much information. I really feel like I’m getting my money’s worth to grow and improve...”

  • I was very hesitant to sign up for the course as it was just something that popped up on my Facebook feed. I wasn’t sure if it would be suitable for my level of playing ability or not. I was worried I was going to be wasting money at a time when finances are a bit uncertain.

Jayne R., Australia

I am SO SO SO glad I did the course.

I felt that Carmen really genuinely wanted to help me improve. She is so encouraging, supportive and knowledgeable. Constructive criticisms were very well articulated. I felt like the course material was perfect for my current level of playing. Piano is such a solitary activity. The interactive live sessions and the forums were great to feel like a part of a community of pianists. It felt like we were working together towards a common goal with Carmen as our coach. I loved it so much I didn’t want it to finish. I have signed up to continue working with Carmen and look forward to seeing where it will take me. I know my technique and confidence have already improved a lot.”


  • I was very impressed that you kept a 14 year old teenager’s attention all summer and he wanted to work on his piano 5 out of 7 days a week without me even saying anything. I watched the first bit and was very impressed. Thank you so much Carmen for the huge amount of work you put into this program.”

Susan F., Canada

  • My mum originally signed my up for the course as just something to do during the summer. I wasn't sure I would like it. However it turned out to be really fun and enjoyable. I had a lot of fun and the presentation of each module was easy to follow along. And the style of each video was engaging.

  • Feels like more info in 9 minutes than in 4 years of undergrad music studies. Also, it’s simple and confidence-building...rather than high-pressure and terrifying!”

Paul L., USA

Norma E., Canada

  • I am an advanced student, but I was never taught the foundation details that were covered in this course.

To future students, If your piano study has omitted the techniques that help increase speed, agility, sight reading patterns faster, and conquering stage fright, this course will help you gain the confidence to fulfill your dreams of playing piano.

It was a great opportunity for me to learn from a professional concert pianist who is dedicated to helping students achieve greatness. Thank you, Carmen Morin.”

  • I highly recommend this to anyone out there who wants to improve their technique.”

Kasia C., UK

  • I really wish I had stumbled upon a piano teacher years ago who could have taught me all this—it would have spared me a lot of frustration as well as physical discomfort in my arms. But I’m so thankful that I found this course and I’m now making up for lost time.

Carmen is an enthusiastic, encouraging teacher with meticulous attention to detail. And it’s those little details that make the difference! I’m also glad I overcame my reticence and posted weekly videos of my progress—Carmen’s feedback was invaluable.

Gary R., USA

  • Before taking the program, I had been learning and playing for over ten years. This program far exceeded my expectations, learning core fundamental concepts never addressed in my years of private lessons. For example, the relationship of body movements as well as relaxation of core body parts to efficient, smooth, expressive, and fast playing where called for.
    The "see-and-do" videos are exceptionally produced, and the accompanying module workbooks well structured with easily digestible lessons and on hands application.

A great value for the modest investment for the course. I highly recommend.”

Denise E., USA

  • I loved it. I really needed it and will continue to work through it and always use it as a source of information. Thank you much!”
  • The amount of value... for the price was amazing.... I can’t express how grateful I am to have found Carmen’s course.”

I thoroughly enjoyed Carmen Morin’s Piano Foundation Course. I am a beginner piano player, never having played before, pushing 70 years old, retired and lucky to have the time to spend a few hours a day practicing. After about 6 months of taking other courses and cruising YouTube, and feeling very frustrated, I came upon this course.

For a beginner like me it was like finding gold.

I desperately needed to start from scratch, yet all that I was able to find prior to this course skipped over the basic essentials necessary to establish a solid foundation. This course does that extremely well, answering all the questions I'd been asking myself.

From other students’ comments, it appears that the course is very helpful even to pianists much more advanced than a beginner. Though I do enjoy classical music, my piano playing interest is more in jazz and the blues. Learning these piano foundations will serve one well in any genre I’m sure.”
