As mentioned in the video above, after publishing my first two music books, my music studio more than doubled. Parents and other piano teachers sent their piano students who were not enjoying piano lessons to me hoping I could motivate and inspire them to keep playing the piano. The only problem was, with the majority of these new students not wanting to take piano lessons anymore, more than half of my studio now wanted to quit piano lessons. Some even said they actually hated the piano. Every lesson became drudgery, dread, and despair, and that is just what I was feeling during their piano lesson! I'm sure they felt worse than I did because they thought piano lessons were a waste of their time and felt they had better things to do. They did not see the value in playing the piano because they were not having FUN! Now I want piano students to work hard, push themselves, and learn to do difficult things. It takes persistence to learn to play the piano. It takes effort, practice, dedication, and hard work. But I believe it can and should also be a FUN and enjoyable process.

I had a problem and had to figure out how to motivate and inspire these piano students. If you are a piano teacher or a parent of a piano student, maybe you can relate to what I experienced in trying to motivate my piano students.

As explained in the video above, I began composing a piano solo for each individual piano student during their piano lesson in any style, key signature, time signature, and genre of his or her choosing. Some wanted faster music that sounded like pop, rock, jazz, blues, or boogie-woogie styles. Others wanted slower music that sounded more like new age, contemporary/classical, ballads, or hymns. I composed music my piano students wanted to play! After composing each piece I asked the students what they thought and almost without exception, every student said they thought the music sounded COOL! All of these pieces became known as COOL SONGS.

Parents and piano teachers began contacting me and asking me how they could begin using these COOL SONGS with their own piano students. My waiting list for my own piano studio exploded. Parents and teachers would be on a 3-5 year waiting list just to begin taking piano lessons from me so their students could have FUN piano lessons and use my COOL SONGS Series and my ESSENTIAL PIANO EXERCISES books.

I have compiled all of the various COOL SONGS I composed for my own piano students into a COOL SONGS Bundle to help motivate other piano students and share my COOL SONGS with piano teachers and piano students around the world!

WHAT IS INSIDE THIS COURSE/SERIES?

fun piano lessons 

Pre-recorded video lessons with accompaniment MP3 minus tracks.

These COOL SONGS are helping teen piano students and adults all over the world to learn music theory the FUN way and in the process have an enjoyable time taking piano lessons. The main three areas I try to focus on in my own teaching, my various master classes, workshops/seminars, musical speeches and in composing these various COOL SONGS are:

Theory Therapy
(Learn Music Theory)

Most piano students and some piano teachers don't know or even like music theory. Jerald helps with Theory Therapy! It's the practical application of music theory. You learn how to apply it. It's FUN!

Innovative Improvisation
(Learn Improvisation)

Learn how to play the same song 100 different ways. Learn to play by ear, how to use fake books and lead sheets. Play new age, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and more. Jerald refers to this as Innovative Improvisation.

Creative Composition
(Learn Composition)

Learning to play music as it is will help you in the beginning. Learning how to arrange and improvise music will inspire you. Learning how to compose your own music will help you share your music with others.

Essential Piano Exercises Every Piano Player Should Know is a big book of essential piano exercises in every key signature and in every inversion. Piano students need to learn the fundamental basics of playing the piano.

This book introduces piano students to intervals, pentascales, tetrachords, scales (major and minor), chords (triads, SUS chords {sus 4 and sus 2}, augmented {aug.}, diminished {dim.}, 6th, minor 6th, major 7th, minor major 7th, dominant 7th, minor 7th, minor 7th (flat 5), minor 7th (sharp 5), diminished 7th), chord progressions, and fun, cool piano exercises in all key signatures and inversions.

After presenting the traditional and essential piano exercises, Jerald presents a section featuring FUN and COOL exercises you won't find anywhere else. Jerald also explains why it is important to learn intervals, scales, and chords and then demonstrates what you can do once you have learned the theory. Jerald refers to it as the practical application of music theory. He often calls it "Putting FUN back into Piano FUNdamentals" (emphasis on the word FUN). Take your piano playing to a whole new level with these exercises in every key signature. Piano teachers are thrilled with the amount of exercises presented in this book.

"I did a lot of research trying to find the right piano course on the internet. When I finally signed up for Essential Piano Exercises, I was not disappointed. Vendors often over-promise and under-deliver. Refreshingly, I experienced the opposite. I can recommend this course wholeheartedly to any pianist who wants to learn to improvise, play by ear, and become unglued from sheet music. If you are prepared to put in the hours, this course will change the way you look at the keyboard." - Martin Reith

Music Motivation Goal book by Jerald Simon - published by Music Motivation (musicmotivation.com)

The Music Motivation® Goal Book

This is a HUGE Savings!

I have tried to make the Essential Piano Teachers Lifetime License affordable for piano teachers. Each individual book is sold as a PDF lifetime license on the Music Motivation® website for $59.95 per studio license (per book).

If that amount were multiplied by the 30+ books included in this offer, piano teachers would have to spend more than $1,798.50 just for the studio license of the books (if purchased separately). That does not include the video lessons or additional courses we are offering with this Essential Piano Teachers Lifetime License. I want to pass on the savings directly to the teacher, so this package is the most cost effective way to purchase my books.

MAKE MONEY Using these books by Jerald Simon

I do allow piano teachers to reprint these books for the piano students in the piano teachers studio (this license cannot be shared with multiple piano teachers - each teacher must have their own studio license).

I encourage piano teachers to reprint these books and even sell the reprints of the books for a profit to the piano students. The piano teacher can keep all of the money they charge the piano student for printing out and assembling the books. Pay for the studio license once and reprint (and make money reprinting) the books for life.

I want you to receive the biggest bang for your buck and provide the best piano lesson content I can. I have spent over a decade creating these COOL SONGS and want to share them with as many people as possible. Please share this page with your family and friends who may be interested in my COOL SONGS. If you know any other piano teacher, piano student, parent of a piano student, family, or relatives who would benefit from these COOL SONGS, please forward this page to them and share this offer with them so they can begin playing these COOL SONGS today!
