Mr. Hoffman has been called the Mr. Rogers of Piano. The Hoffman Academy brings you a platform where you can learn music (geared for both kids and adults) for free or for a monthly payment. I’m only going to be talking about the free features, because this is an amazing music resource that I want to share with you.

When you arrive at the site, scroll down the main page and you’ll find a How it Works section that lays out the methodology of the academy – learn, practice, print & audio, and games. If you want to check out a lesson, click the Start Lesson One, and then play the video. You’ll need a Piano or Keyboard to play along, but if you don’t have one you could look for a piano app. Or you could just watch and see if you think the teaching style suits you and go from there.

The lessons comes with printables and audio. And there are even games you can play to help you learn the piano!

Speaking of needing a piano or keyboard, this site also offers a great Guide to Choosing a Piano/Keyboard. If you are thinking of purchasing one, it’s definitely worth checking out.
