Starting or returning to the piano? Start on the right foot by getting a solid foundation while you write music and play games! I'll be your cheerleader and play with you as you become a better note reader, feel the basics of rhythm, and discover the secret to your own piano habit.

Linda Gould on the Crystal Serenity 2020

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 find their creative voice.

Piano From Scratch has 30 exciting lectures (yes 30!) all for the price of one piano lesson AND you can repeat them as many times as you wish. Great value!

I wrote Piano From Scratch because creativity starts with a solid foundation AND you'll get your foundation creatively! This isn't your standard course. Prepare to use your ears, your eyes, your pencils, your fingers and of course, your piano!

Totally Stress Free!

Linda's classes have been fun and totally stress-free. If I had had this type of instruction early in my piano playing, I would likely have never stopped playing.
