Here's a few reasons why you need this course!

An ear training course crafted especially for pianists.

Ear training (or more accurately ‘brain-training’) gets our brain to filter the details in music we hear through what we’ve heard before - when we recognise a pattern, we can more easily translate it to our instrument.

❌ You don’t need:

  • Perfect pitch
  • A ‘good ear’
  • Natural talent
  • Notation reading
  • 10+ years of lessons
  • A foundation in classical piano
  • A good singing voice

✅ You do need:

  • Your hearing
  • A keyboard/piano
  • headphones/earbuds
  • A wifi device/computer

You won’t get:

  • The learning songs by ear process (find that here).
  • Piano playing basics (find that here).
  • Extraneous theory (only what you need to know).
  • Marathon video lectures (who has the time?).

You will get:

  1. Succinct 2 minute-video lessons.
  2. Discover the most useful musical patterns in density, space, rhythm, melody and harmony.
  3. Fail-proof techniques to measure & identify those patterns.
  4. Screen-free audio exercises to test your recognition.
  5. Challenges to apply your new skills in a song-scenario.


Strengthening the ear-brain connection leads to:

  • Accelerated song learning!

  • Heightened musical instinct!

  • Freedom from note-by-note sheet reading!

  • Unlock play-in-any-key versatility!

  • Memorise entire melodies & chord progressions.

  • Intensified listening experience!

Hi, I'm Ruth Power

–aka the Piano Priestess.
I'm a pianist & piano coach who has helped thousands of men & women transform their ability at the keys via my online courses, seminars and 1-on-1 coaching.
A few years ago I said goodbye to the music book publishing industry and a high-stress Editor job in London, UK in order to travel the world and live life on my own terms.
Since then I've gone on to build the first dedicated creative piano school on the internet while based in New Zealand, Australia, Vietnam and Thailand.
Wherever I am in the world my mission is to inspire, educate & equip pianists to explore their instrument with 100% curiosity and creativity.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts as soon as you enrol! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
If you purchased the course outright, you'll have 1 full year access. This will give you time to complete the course many times over. The time-limit is to encourage you to seize the day! Though as a self-paced course, the when and how you study is completely up to you. If you purchased the membership, you'll have access for as long as you are a member!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied, contact us within 7 days of your purchase and we will happily transfer you to a more suitable course (of the same value) or credit the value of your purchase toward your next enrolment. Please read the course description carefully as refund requests are granted on a case-by-case basis and will not be granted for change of mind or failure to read the course description. Read our policy (in 'Terms of Use') from the link at the bottom of this page.
I don't have enough time.
The major difference with Piano Picnic from other piano courses on the web is that our lessons are on average 2 minutes, which means it can easily be substituted instead of scrolling your phone endlessly, deciding what to watch on Netflix, or heck - you could do a lesson while you’re waiting in traffic!
I'm unsure about online courses.
Piano Picnic courses allow you to learn in your own space, in your own time, at your own piano – and you get to learn all the fun creative skills that aren't traditionally taught in private lessons!
Should I enrol in the course or the Creative Pianist membership?
It's really up to you – but here's the difference: when you enrol in this course you are purchasing 1-year unlimited access with ONE payment. You can take as long as you need to get through it, repeat the course and revisit it whenever you want within a year. When you join the Creative Pianist membership, you get access to ALL of the Piano Picnic courses, including this one - for a recurring subscription (monthly or yearly). This way you can try courses out before you commit to them, do them in whichever order you want to, do multiple courses at one time and get member's only features such as the vault of coaching replays and the monthly live coaching hangout (+ other courses not available to the public). If you find you want a break or have learned everything you can possibly learn, you can cancel at any time.
I have questions that haven't been answered here.
If you have any questions just send me an email at [email protected] I would be happy to personally answer them for you.
