So many adults want to play current music for fun instead of, or in addition to, classical music. They want to learn tunes in days or weeks not months. Sounds familiar? Join us and become comfortable playing your favourite music with lead sheets, and chords.  Improvise with your own ideas or just sing along to some chords.  The beauty of chords and lead sheets is it flexible to wherever you are on your musical journey.  

The pieces in Play Piano Chords Today (PPCT) are chosen for specifically to step new players or classical players into the world of chords, improvisations and lead sheets. The ideal age for the course is teen to adult.

Can you relate?

I just want to play for my enjoyment

There are so many notes to learn, I just want to play

I want to learn the music I know and love

I've always wanted to sing and play piano

I  don't know where to start!

This is why Play Piano Chords TODAY was created.  Whether you have had some lessons long ago, played a lot of classical piano or you're just starting out, the Play Piano Chords Today method get's you playing songs quickly. 

How can the same method teach beginners and advanced classical players?  Well, classical players learned to read notes not lead sheets.  When you have a lead sheet you can play it simply (beginner level) or more complex with bigger chords and some improvisation.  It's all there in 3 easy-to-follow books.

We've taken over a thousand students through the PPCT books with amazing results!

Join me today and discover your musical creativity!

Hi, I'm Linda Gould

I am a mom, grandma, pianist, composer and educator who's passion for the last 4 decades is teaching adults to play piano with piano chords and lead sheets. I love creativity in music and helping students get comfy playing the piano.

My training was classical with 2 university music degrees in piano performance. I performed and taught for many decades but I felt something was missing. Why did it take so long to learn a song?  Was there another way?

The answer was Chords and Lead Sheets.  As we reached a the new millennium, I wrote Play Piano Chords TODAY so any adult, young or not-so-young, could play songs in weeks not months. Sometimes even days!

Play Piano Chords TODAY was composed over a period of 10 years with the help of hundreds of adult students and teachers with wonderfully specific wants, needs and desires. Won't you join me today and discover your musical creativity?


Twice a month join us on Zoom for a LIVE Jam session. 


All levels welcome :-) 

Meet other adults that share your passion for music and piano. Learn chord charts and try out improvisation.  All in the privacy of your own music studio.
