One Minute Mini Lessons

These little One Minute Mini Lessons are designed to answer your questions about playing piano. They reflect the Instant Piano philosophy, and in many cases include ideas taken from our library of courseware. Specific references are given where appropriate.

You can browse the topics or read them all. This forum is designed to be ongoing. If you have any specific questions about piano, you can be a part of this. We welcome you to submit your questions to or else post them on our message board. We’ll do our best to answer questions personally, but due to volume, cannot make any guarantees.
