For my birthday I bought a piano and I am on lesson 10! Thank you for these! They are fun and easy to follow! I played tuba through high school and I have a better understanding of how scales work from a few lessons on the piano than 6 years playing brass, I look forward to going through more!

Thank you very much Furmanczyk! I'm from Brazil, i got a piano about 2 years ago and I didn’t know how to play it. Today I remembered about the poor piano and found your website! Now I know the basic but it’s already good to me. Thankssss, you're a great teacher.

I was a long-standing student with Andrew for nearly a decade. I can say from these many years that he is truly gifted in the art of teaching and conveying his sense of passion for music. He is such a positive individual and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn the piano or explore any aspect of music!

I would strongly recommend Andrew Furmanczyk as a piano instructor. I have been taking lessons with him for some years now and am pleased with the progress that I have made with him. He is a virtuous individual and an accomplished pianist. He will show you how to gradually improve your piano technique and expertise to aid you in your piano journey.

December 23, 2008, I'm shocked by your story, Andrew. It sent a chill up my spine to read what you've gone through and realize the true magnanimity of your gift of piano to us all. Your resilience is inspirational. Thank you for what you're doing, and best of luck in your endeavors. p.s. On a less serious note, your videos are awesome!

Since your lessons, I've gained so much more understanding about music, and it has honestly opened my eyes to an entirely new world and I feel more connected to the music I produce, and listen to on the radio.

Even though this is probably more kids and adolescents oriented course, I find it very effective for a grown man like me 🙂 Your methods are simple and make results very smoothly. I’m recommending this site to all musicians I know that need any kind of theory knowledge, and their kids of course! Thank you!

Whenever I would try to find help online, they always would be scams so I quit searching. I decided to give it another shot again after years of not searching and ended up finding your online resources. So far, I can already tell it will be a blessing and that you are sincere with teaching others music. Thank you for what you do.

I used your videos to enhance my playing, and it really showed. I also had lots of fun with major and minor keys. Thanks!

Without this I probably would not have had the opportunity to learn and being able to means so much to me. Music is a passion of mine and to be able to finally learn and express myself is absolutely amazing so thank you again!


July 20, 2014

Your lessons are thorough, your pace is comfortable, and the order/organization is absolutely well thought out and simply awesome!!! Thank you again!

I just finished watching your Learn Free Music Theory videos. Your style of teaching is both very educational and entertaining, a skill that very few teachers are capable of. Thanks to you, I’m inspired to keep learning more about music and now I have a very solid foundation to build upon.

July 2, 2014

This course is brilliant. Thank you so much for doing this. I have always been daunted by the piano but they way you break it down is really great. Thanks again.


May 2, 2014

I have been wanting to play for a really long time and your videos are a great resource. Thank you.

I believe that your video has put me back on track. I was discouraged and didn't even want to play anymore. I now realize that I needed a plan. I felt that I wasn't getting anywhere with my playing. I now think that there is hope. Thank you so much for all that you do. You are the best!


May 2, 2011

Wow I made it through every single video. You're amazing man, and a huge inspiration. Everything I've learned so far has been from your videos.


January 26, 2011

This is just the type of advice I needed to hear for actually learning how to learn music and other things in general. I could see these methods applied to most instruments and areas of music. This really inspires some great new thoughts and ideas!


April 11, 2010

I started 9 month ago only with Andrew's online lessons and watched about the half. Now I'm learning chopin op.69 no.2 which is grade 7 and I'm more than half way through after 3 weeks ... So, Give it a try :)

Teacher, life coach, motivational speaker, musical genius, entertainer, Andrew you are an all around great guy and you've got one of the most beautiful minds I've ever come across, the way you think fascinates me, the wittiness of your analogies and jokes is something we've all come to be quite fond of. I'm proud to finally say that I've got a real life hero and his name is Andrew Furmanczyk ^_^


March 3, 2011

Your lessons have evolved me so much that I have surpassed my father who has been playing on and off for years, With a real teacher! You have been my music Godsend. Thank you so much for your time and effort. It has changed my life.

This guy is a mind reader. When I just thought that he is moving too fast, exactly then he mentioned what I might be feeling. Very humble person. Anyone can make out easily that he is genuinely willing to share whatever knowledge he got.. The touch of natural humour you add makes the session feel alive like interacting with real tutor.. Much much much appreciated.. Thank you Andrew... You are an inspiration.

Andrew is a great teacher, and the jokes and giggles make it even more fun. Thank you for taking the time to make these videos, Andrew. They are helping a lot of people who would otherwise be scared away from the keyboard.

Thank you for making the piano seem less intimidating!! Every time you make a joke it brings me back down to earth and reminds me that I should be having fun learning the piano, not pulling my hair out.
