One of the simple pleasures I enjoy the most is playing the piano. I've been doing it ever since my mother gave me my first lesson as a small boy. As a teenager I had many years of formal classical training and even entertained ambitions of becoming a concert pianist. That was a long time ago. Since then my preference in music has shifted to jazz and there's an indescribable joy that I derive from expressing myself on the piano. I do it every day. I created this lens as a resource for those people considering an online piano course, who need answers to a few more questions before they choose a program to get started.
