None of us are musicians. We all are music enthusiasts, though. We love the idea of knowing how to play a musical instrument but our career and the track we are in never allowed us to pursue the same. It’s the virtue of our profession, we keep getting unique opportunities to try out new things. This time, it was a review that was to be formulated that took us to piano.
We chose Dhruv to try it out. He, being the most music-enthusiast of all.
We made him learn Piano with the help of ‘Piano For All’ which got us an honest and genuine review for the same.
After a few weeks of the program, working on Dhruv’s terrible piano skills – totally on him – he has come up with some understanding of the program and some insights that we want to share with you.
So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get started.
Piano for All: A Brief Review / First Impressions
Piano for All is a piano teaching program that comes with 10 eBooks, 500 audios and 200 videos.
Just to be clear, we have NOT gone through to the entirety of it yet to give you a complete overview of the course.
What we have done instead is practice early tutorials for hours. So, consider this more like a first impression rather than a comprehensive review.
Piano For All Online Vs. Offline Review
We have to mention right away that Robin Hall, the creator of Piano for All, is a really nice person. We know most tutorial teachers are that way in video lectures but this gentleman right here made Dhruv feel welcome with all his lack of skill.
We will have to mention Dhruv’s embarrassing few months as a child when he was signed up for piano classes by his parents.
They spent a couple hundreds of dollars in the entire conundrum of making their kid do something more than just play video games.
Which in our opinion is way more expensive and way less fruitful than what he is doing right now.
Well, you can say that when you learn in person you get powerful insights that you can’t get on any tutorial online. But then sometimes you need to go through lessons again and again and only the comfort of video lectures can make that happen.
Although there can be some drawbacks of online learning, especially given the variety of courses online, in any case, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages always.
Dhruv has always have been bad at reading notes and understanding music, but now, he can just put it on repeat or slow-motion until he gets it.
“My childhood piano teacher was not so great at that. Is it a warning sign of the dawn of the new age that I am able to connect with computers more than actual people?
The Visual Reference
So it’s more affordable and more accessible than the real thing? But what else?
Well, one of our more musically savvy friends pointed out that the lessons have been kinder to her because she doesn’t like reading into notes.
She likes the feel of the music more and watching the musician get the feel of the song. And the video lectures are perfect for those kinds of learners.
According to her, online learning program is not a replacement but an alternative for people who learn differently. Conventional school is actually very “conventional”. Some people learn differently and Piano for All is finally an opportunity for them to learn.

How Much Time Do You Really Need?
Although this program is meant for folks of all ages, let’s talk about adults a bit. Most adults are busy folks who have jobs and families to take care of. They don’t have a couple of hours to spend like most kids get the time for.
Good news for them though, Piano for All recommends only 20 to 30 minutes of practice every day; which is relatively way smaller and most folks get away with even less and irregular practice.
The Offline Shipment
Now even though it’s not the good old’ 80s and most people have stable high-speed internet connections, some people don’t or would like an offline collection instead of an online one so they can fire up some tutorial anytime inspiration hits them like a truck.
Weighing it out
The learning experience has been splendid not just in contrast to the offline options but online tutorials as well. The biggest reason is that it’s complete. Most online tutorials are posted for free and many times the creator would just leave it in between but this is a complete package on the other hand. Also, it’s way more affordable than offline learning and has a DVD collection as well.
However, under certain traffic loads, the website of the course will be unreliable and slow. Well, you can obviously just download the lectures or just order the DVDs but this is the only hole in the entire experience which we think we should point out.
