This music education website is a great place for homeschoolers to begin learning how to read music and play the piano. Even if you plan to play another instrument, the course will give some very valuable music instruction that you will use for a lifetime.
Over the years, “Piano on the Net” has been a recommended resource by college music teachers, McGraw-Hill and PBS for students learning to play the piano. Though no piano course by itself can replace a good piano teacher, this site is a great place to supplement your music studies.
Music Instruction for Missionaries
“Piano on the Net” has been a great resource for Missionaries to learn how to read music to be able to play out of a hymnal in preparation for Missionary opportunities. A small portable keyboard, your favorite hymnal, an eager choir to sing and you have an inspiring worship service to look forward to.

General Public - Teach Me How to Play Piano
"Piano on the Net" has proven itself for over 20 years to be one of the best ways to learn to play the piano online. It is designed to help you quickly teach yourself piano, as well as read music. Each piano tutorial teaches beginners through advanced students how to play the piano, including left-hand chording and Jazz improvisation. Learn to play the piano at home or work or even waiting to catch a plane. Of course learning to play the piano also gives you many of the same skills to play other keyboards, such as a synthesizer or portable organ.
How To Begin Your Lessons
When you are ready to proceed, go to the top of this page and under the “Starter Studies” drop-down menu select “Lesson 1.” Each lesson takes about 35 minutes to complete. However, work slowly and at your own pace. It’s important to learn each lesson before moving on to the next.
