The Learn & Master series is by far the most complete DVD instruction course i have found and is easily the best quality out there being from Legacy Training Systems. I tend to find most of the DVD and instructional videos out there quite boring and repetitive to watch. However the Learn & Master series is the complete opposite!
Does exactly as it says on the tin!
Having tried the Learn & Master series before with Guitar and now Piano, I’ve found them to be really easy to digest. I found myself going through a whole course in a day and mastering everything in its content (just like it says on the tin!).
When i say its the most complete course, i mean it is jam packed with everything you will ever need to learn. So if you are Serious about starting piano or even already play and want to brush up on some styles, these Learn & Master series are perfect if you don’t want to have to go online or don’t have the capability to learn online.
Learn piano in its entirety…
You have probably been self taught, learned a few songs on youtube by watching, repeating and committing to muscle memory but never really fully learned how to play piano in its entirety. Will Barrow walks you through from start to finish and teaches you everything you need to know about piano in its entirety. It really is a full course.
The most complete DVD course on the market!
The course consists of a huge 20 DVDs, 5 play-along CDs so you can put what you’ve learned into practice and a 100+ page lesson book. All of the content in the course is delivered with clear step by step instruction and repeats just enough so you grasp each section without having to keep rewinding. Its done very well and i found it extremely easy going.
There are a lot of DVD courses out there that can be very overpowering on the content and the format in which it is delivered can lack enthusiasm which doesn’t get you engaged. Learn & Master is a whole different ball game which i’m sure you will love!
Its not just DVD’s and written material…
Despite Learn and Master being a DVD and written material course, you can still access their online student support site where you can question the instructors, post your profile, track your progress and even chat with other students in an online community.
The DVDs look well polished with easy to navigate menus. Real time animated keyboard makes it easy for you to follow instruction. Professional Grammy award winner musicians feature in the DVD series who help entertain and teach.
