Musicians are not born – they are made. Discover The Logic Behind Music!


Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since we posted on the blog, as we have been writing constant short news updates in our chat room -but today, I am writing to you today to share some really exciting news!

These have been the best days of my life…

After almost three years of intense development with the help of more than fifty collaborators which included pianists, writers, editors, graphic designers, and developers from different corners of the world – I’m proud to announce that our Digital Home-Study Course: “The Logic Behind Musicis finally ready and looking truly amazing. My team and I have taken the lessons, the animations, the graphics, and the presentation to perfection, paying great attention to detail. This course has really become everything we dreamed about!

With this course, the history of piano learning has changed forever.


Throughout history, revolutions have changed the way we think, live, and learn. The leaders of revolutions have long been applauded for their bravery and determination; for using their ideas to better the lives of everyone around them.

Today, my team and I are adding a new chapter to the book of music history by presenting our revolution to the conventional piano-learning method.

Our method is not based on rules, but on logic and understanding. We don’t intend to teach prospective pianists to play without understanding the music. Opposite to the conventional piano-teaching methods, our techniques do not enslave the students with a set of complex rules that only a few can understand, and that only professional musicians are able to master after a lifetime of dedication to music.

Mastery of the art of music composition and improvisation will no longer be limited to the skillful and gifted musicians who are able to devote their entire life to music and piano learning. EVERYONE will be able to enjoy playing, improvising, and composing on the piano -and that’s what this revolution is really about.

Let me give you a sneak peek into what our Digital Home Study Course “The Logic Behind Music” includes:

Here is what you will get with our Digital Home-Study Course:

  • The Logic Behind Music’s Main Lessons, with all of the music secrets that helped each of the musicians and pianists on our team reach a new level of music understanding.
  • The Logic Behind Music’s Four Piano Practice Booklets full of enriching exercises, so you can take all of the music concepts you are learning into practice with your piano or keyboard.
  • The Logic Behind Music’s Three Reference Books: Expand your knowledge with the Multimedia Books, master all of the fundamental Intervals, Chords and Scales, and gain access to hundreds of interactive Piano reference charts.
  • A Gold-Membership Account in The Piano Encyclopedia’s community, so that you can access Premium Exclusive Areas, ask questions, share your progress, parcipate in music contests, and interact with other musicians and pianists that are taking the same lessons as you.
  • More than five hundred (500+) Pages of Unique Content
  • More than two thousand (2000+) Interactive Animations
  • Thousands of Piano Chord, Scale, and Interval Recordings
  • Virtual Piano Keyboards and exclusive Piano Encyclopedia technology, so that you can follow the lessons and practice even if you are far away from your piano or keyboard.

Preview of The Logic Behind Music

The most common problem we’ve encountered is that most pianists are limited to just reading and playing music. That is, most pianists are just ‘interpreters’ and lack the necessary skills to be able to improvise or compose music. What we recognized is that it is not the students’ fault… it’s actually the way they’re taught. Very few teachers know this, and very few private teachers actually teach this in a practical way.

In my case, I spent more than ten years without much real progress, other than learning more and more pieces, which I would then forget as the years passed. Then I was shown some simple but powerful concepts that changed everything for me, and nowadays I just sit at the piano and improvise or create my own music. This is something I thought was completely impossible… something that I considered out of my reach no matter how hard I practiced… and no teacher would teach.

We want to change this worldwide.

We want to eliminate this frustration for every piano player out there.

Eight months ago, we were (and still are) the first piano site on  the Internet to release an eBook of more than twenty pages for free. We released our 111-page Music Fundamentals eBook as a gift to the Piano community.

Today, that content has been enriched with interactive multimedia content and is now part of just the first chapters of our Digital Home-Study Course: “The Logic Behind Music.” The report was a complete success, and the comments we have received far exceeded our expectations

These are just five out of more than fifty comments we received, taken directly from the messages:

“Hi Rod,

I just found your website a week ago and I can say that even though the report is free, it is the best 111 pages of music I have ever touched. I
could not believe that there exist such logic to music playing
. Maybe
this is what differentiates average piano players and the exceptional ones

I began to play piano again this past two months after 10 years of idling. I
practice for more than two hours each day, and after I read the report, the
music sheets suddenly become so much more clear than ever before.

I have a
dream of being able to play piano on stage, and with what’s coming, I don’t
think it is impossible anymore

Wilson Tjandra

“Hi Rod,

I’m currently reading your report and I must admit it is fantastic!
I’ve been studying piano for some years, giving up and starting again quite a lot of times. Your personal history is very similar to mine The project is a great idea and it will help a lot of people.

I’ve never found something similar in the internet!” ,


“Thank You! Thank You! as a retired engineer with no musical experience, you have made an apparent arbitrary system logical.”

Bruce Woods

Just finished first lesson. My mother (who is a piano teacher) wasn’t able to teach me this much in past oh, god knows how many years with her conventional approach (sorry, Mom). I’ll definitely show her this website. Can’t wait to start a second lesson. Thanks for doing this, guys”,


“Hello. I have looked on different websites to try and find something that would help me on chords, and this was the best and easiest approach. My husband and I go to church, where everyone has some type of music ability. I’ve never been cordinated or very consistant in anything I’ve tried to play.

This has helped me, along with prayer. I am very thankful to have found such a wonderful way of teaching, thank you very
much for that!”


“Thanks to you and to the whole team for this amazing project that will help a lot of people to understand how music works!

Now I can say: “i’m understanding music!”

William Rivera

This is with no doubt one
of the greatest piano learning material on the internet.“,

“Dear Rod

I thank you very much for this website, in my point of view I would say it will most likley contribute into the comeback and the revolution of the piano once again.

I thank you very much for this. This website will help so many people with there piano work and create a useful(unlike the others online) piano community which can discuss and help students/teachers with real piano issues! I am happy to finally see all the pianos needed information to be gathered in one single site and will be using this site and contributing to it
without doubt.

    Hi Rod,

    This is just amazing. Congratulation to you and your team! I can’t wait to start to explore this course and community. The number of things that comes with the course is just impressive. I am sure that this website will help a lot of people who find it difficult to learn to play, improvise and/or compose on the piano. They have now both a comprehensive course and a community to turn to. I’m sure that will eliminate at least SOME frustration. I like the design on everything as well 🙂

    Again, congratulation with the completion. Great Work! Can’t wait to get a closer look on everything 🙂

    I just discovered your site yesterday, and I’ve read through the Music Fundamentals booklet. I’m a total newbie at music (except for listening to it) and as a computer geek and programmer I like to understand the system behind things. I found the booklet an excellent resource, and am looking forward to this course, especially learning to compose my own music, as opposed to learning to play a lot of boring tunes without knowing how they are made. The language was clear and precise, and everything was explained thoroughly and understandably. Great stuff!
