A groundbreaking approach to learning the piano

PianoZen is an online program for children and adults learning the piano.

Whether you're just getting started or would like to take your piano playing to the next level, learn the piano using the PianoZen method developed by Thomas Rheingans, a concert pianist who feels equally at home with jazz, pop, folk, and contemporary music.

Through the use of ancient concepts about the Four Elements of Earth, Air, Water, and Fire, PianoZen taps into the power of your imagination to make learning the piano more mindful, creative and enjoyable.

Kind Words

"I have to say I am in shock and awe with this program. I went into this course knowing nothing about music notes, theory, keys. I knew absolutely nothing. I have just finished the first 2 sections and had a profound experience. I have learned so much in such a short period of time. The way Thomas teaches really hits you on a subconscious level and material sticks."

~ Bradley

"This is the most amazing musical course I have ever taken. It teaches a kind of discipline only achieved through patience. I have taken piano lessons from many different types of instructors, but the Piano Zen Method is by far the best I have ever experienced. Why? It builds on a stress-free foundation which is enjoyable for both the pianist and the listener."

~ Nancy

"And while in my enthusiasm for learning the piano, I've also enrolled in other great piano courses, they all tend to cover the usual styles we know and love. But Piano Zen is unique as far as course material. First, it's got a whole other vibe, which I was immediately grabbed by. I can't rave highly enough. Great course - a real gem."
