Join me and explore 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 has been teaching adults to play piano with piano chords and lead sheets. I love creativity in music and helping teachers grow and become comfortable teaching with chords.

My training was classical with 2 university music degrees in piano performance. I've performed with orchestras, solo and chamber music concerts and taught for many decades but I felt something was missing in my music education so I made the rather large leap from classical notes to pop/jazz chords.  I want to make that leap much easier for you! 


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, discover your musical creativity and enrich your students?
