Honest Review Of “Learn Piano In 21 Days”

At first when I heard about this Piano course which promises you that they will teach you piano in 21 days the first thing that came in mind is this meme.

Sound Good Doesn't Work Meme

A lot of courses are spread everywhere claiming they are the best and they can teach you X or Y thing in Z time. But almost all of them are nothing more than just sell hype. But trust me this time I was wrong. Learn Piano In 21 Days actually delivers what they offer.

So let's dive a bit more into it and find out what they offer and how you can learn piano in just 21 days.

Piano In 21 Days Honest Review

Learn piano in just twenty-one days - that seems a bit too good to be true. After all, doesn’t it usually take years and years to play the piano?

When I first came across Jacques Hopkin’s Piano In 21 Days course, we were intrigued but skeptical.

As a former engineer, Jacques seems to have “cracked the code” on how to simplify piano playing to its most streamlined form. At Piano In 21 Days, that means chord-based playing and improvisation.

Reading through Jacques’ website, a few things become immediately apparent. He’s not your average music teacher, and he’s not here to teach you Chopin or Rimsky-Korsakov. There’s also (thankfully) no Mary Had a Little Lamb or other kiddie songs in sight! Only popular tunes from Adele, Bruno Mars, the Beatles, and more.

What It Offers and How They Deliver

This course has the end goal of you being able to select songs of your choice and play them with Jacques’ chord-based approach. So what exactly could you learn from Piano In 21 Days? Here’s what this course covers:

  • Note mastery
  • Major and minor chord formations
  • Hand coordination
  • check
  • check
    Advanced chords
  • check
  • check
  • check
    Jacques’ 5-step song-learning process

Okay, so that’s what Piano In 21 Days claims to teach you. But does it work? Let’s take a look at some testimonials from a third-party review site where real students have reviewed Jacques’ course.

Worth Every Penny

The 21 days course is a very good instructive course. I have been working my way through it and am about half-way through. At age 91 I find it challenging, but quite worthwhile.

Jacques Knows What He Is Doing

It sounds too good to be true, but this system really does work. Three weeks in and I'm playing real songs (not chopsticks or Swans on the Lake), current music! I know most of the chords by heart and know how to figure out the ones I don't know by heart. This is the real deal! (Truth in advertising---I did take piano lessons for a year, so I had a basic understanding of piano, but that was 40 years ago.

  1. The course is well marketed but I think they do not deliver what they promise. Its not at all possible to learn piano in 21 days. Mark it

    • As I said they actually teach you piano in 21 days but don’t get your expectations too high. This is sort of marketing gimmick as learning piano is not as easy as they make us belive. However, they will teach you basic stuff which will later help in forming a solid base for further learning.

  2. I have been using the chord method for a year or so, which is chords with the left hand and the melody with the right hand. I want to learn what to do to embellish the melody and chords, which would take my music to a much higher level and sound like a professional. Playing only what is on a “lead sheet” sounds too elementary. It would be very nice to learn to improvise at the keyboard.
