Musically Inclined?  …Me?  You Can’t Be Serious…

We’ve all heard the cringe-worthy chords and sour notes of someone just starting to learn to play an instrument.  And that’s the kind of impression we get about learning to play.  We’re told it’s difficult, frustrating and only for people who have a “natural talent”.

But the truth is, all people are musically gifted.

Even – and especially – you.

You tap into that inner musical gift when you dance to the rhythm of your favorite song or even sing along to the radio.  It’s all part of the magic of being human.

And Able to Play can help you rediscover that musical talent – starting right now.

First, Forget Everything You’ve Ever Heard About Trying to Play Piano or Accordion

That means you can forget about reading music, counting out loud, and all those other boring (not to mention extremely frustrating) “necessities”.  At least in the beginning…

We believe learning to play should be about surrounding yourself with the styles of music that appeal most to you – understanding easy techniques to master rhythm and sound so that counting and reading notes come naturally as you progress.

Forcing you to try and learn all the terminology and techniques before you play is like teaching a child to spell a word before they can read.  And the best way to read is – you guessed it, sounding it out.

See how everything comes back to sound?

The Simply Music technique has produced thousands of successful musicians in a variety of genres, and we believe it is the most complete, friendly and most importantly fun way to learn the music you love.

From the Students

“It was surprising to see how effective Skype lessons can be. It has not made a difference whether I take the lessons with a teacher sitting next to me or whether she/he is thousand of miles away. What makes a difference is the quality of the teacher! I can’t wait to settle down in Italy so that I can continue with my lessons with Patricia and her world-class teachers!” - Salomon Salcedo

“I like the cultural diversity in the studio and always enjoy my lessons. The learning is interactive and the teachers are fun. I have progressed a lot in the five years I have been taking lessons at Able To Play Music and have become more musically advanced than I ever thought I would.”  - Naomi Harris
