There are numerous online products available for learning the piano from home and in your own time. Some of them offer the basics while others go all out and attempt to offer everything. In my experience, most of the courses fall short and that is why I had to write up this Rocket Piano review as I felt it was the best course I found.
What exactly is Rocket Piano?
Rocket Piano is a progressive series of three ebooks designed to take you from complete beginner to advanced pianist over the course of 12 months. Just because it is laid out to take 12 months doesn’t mean it will take you that long to accomplish a great standard of playing. For complete beginners it is highly advisable to spend the required amount of time on the beginner’s book as this sets you up with the knowledge and skills to improve quicker.
The beginner’s book is 165 pages long and covers a lot of the history of the piano, techniques for learning the scales and where to place your fingers. It also covers melody and rhythm which is essential to understand to become an accomplished pianist.
The second book in the series is the intermediate book. It is much shorter at only 65 pages, but this is because it does not have to cover the basics and can get straight into the intermediate knowledge and lessons. It builds up on the basic knowledge and skills from the beginner’s book and takes melody and rhythm skills to a higher level. You will also learn about more complete chords and more detailed rhythms and harmonies as well as learning how to read a piece of music.
The final book in the Rocket Piano series is the advanced book. This is obviously aimed at pianists who want to really hone their skills and play a professional level. The focus is pretty much on learning new techniques and improving older techniques so you are able to play at a professional level consistently. The advanced skills are laid out in step by step fashion so they are easy to follow and easy to learn.
There are other eBooks included within the course that focus on styles rather than general piano playing skills. However, there are 26 Jam tracks included so you can play along and practice new skills as you pick them up. This helps break up things and brings a bit more fun into learning how to play the piano.
I also found the video demonstrations great value as it meant I could see things rather than just reading about them. In total there are 57 instructional videos available that help teach you exactly how to do things. I would still advise reading each of the three books as watching the videos alone may mean you miss out on some basic skills or knowledge.
At the time of this Rocket Piano review there were also a number of bonus items included. There is no guarantee whether the bonus materials will remain bundled together with Rocket Piano, but if they are it makes it even more worthwhile to buy it.

Rocket Piano review summary Conclusion:
Overall, Rocket Piano offers a much more comprehensive guide to playing the piano than I have found elsewhere on the net. The three main ebooks are well laid out and pianists at any level will feel comfortable learning.
One of the best things about Rocket Piano is that it does not restrict your creativity. I found a lot of other guides tried to limit your creativity and restrict the techniques you could use. Rocket Piano doesn’t try to do this and as a result I have no hesitation is recommending it to anyone, whether they are new to learning the piano or even if they currently play it at advanced levels.
