About This Class

Learn a simple and great sounding way to start writing songs on the piano!

Hi there!

My name is Kaiwen, and I've been a piano teacher for 3 years. I also happen to be a massive karaoke freak, so singing is another passion of mine. 

In this course you will learn:

  •  How to write a really good sounding song on the piano
  • All the chords you need and their variations
  • How to choose a song style
  • How to add lyrics on the fly
  • A variety of fun chord progressions
  • The chord number system

You will not learn:

  • How to write lyrics, as it is something personal and entirely up to you! :)

Have fun!
