Piano Etudes Course
Études (from the word for "study" in French) are pieces of music that highlight particular techniques for the purpose of mastery in a musical context. As opposed to technical exercises (like playing scales or arpeggios), etude pieces embed the specific technique or techniques of interest into the music itself, presenting a piece that is meant to blend the features of education and musicality.
In this course, we'll use etudes to explore and expand our technical and musical capacity at the piano. While you can progress through this course chronologically, you can also pick and choose lessons based on your experience level.
The etudes used in this course will range from beginner through late intermediate.

Liberty Park Music (LPM) is an online music school. We teach music through videos and supporting materials like homework assignments and backing tracks. Currently, we offer lessons on piano, guitar, drums, and music theory. We will introduce more instruments, subjects, and services in the future to give you even more choices.
All you need is a computer or a mobile device that allows web browsing. With a reasonably stable and fast internet connection, your viewing experience is optimized on your desktops, laptops, or tablets.
We are constantly producing and publishing new lessons, about one new module each month, for every instrument and subject. So you always have new materials to work on.
Your membership, regardless of of your plan, should give you access to the entire library of lessons. That means ALL lessons are available to you, across instruments, styles, levels, and subjects. For example, you can take piano and theory lessons at the same time, or if you have a good musical appetite, take our piano and drum kit lessons at the same time! It's your choice.
Yes. Learning music online may seem novel to you, but if we can learn a language and other skills online, why not music?

You can pause when you need a moment to digest the lesson or rewind to view a particular section again.
We accept credit card payments or PayPal, powered by Stripe and PayPal for your security. We also don't save any of your credit card information in our database.
