The pianists & keyboardists we admire the most don’t just learn pieces from sheet music. They take music and twist, transform & shape it into their own sonic sculpture. These are the pianists we admire the most, what they do is hypnotising.
We want to play like that, but for the most part, we’re told that the path to those skills is in traditional piano methods. So we learn the scales and the classical pieces, and suddenly you’ve been playing for 10 years but you still can’t play anything like THAT.
And that’s because:
Building creative skills requires creative training.
And all that creative training?
Begins with RIFFING!
But what is a riff?
A riff is a term used to describe short isolated patterns that can be used in many different settings. A riff can be rhythmic, it can be melodic, it can even be based on the way we play something instead of what we play (articulation).
When we identify, practice & memorise a riff pattern, we begin to build our ‘riff bank’.
‘Riff Bank’ is a term I use to describe the collection of riffs I’ve amassed over the years, and I’m going to help you build your own riff bank too.
These riffs we collect and store can be selected and used in any situation where we want to be creative with the chords that we play.
You scan through your bank to find the perfect riff to withdraw and apply for today’s particular musical creation. And your audience, is hypnotised.
You might not aspire to play to an audience. You might want to use riffs to write your own songs. Or comp from a leadsheet. You might want to use riffs to create your own piano arrangements of your favourite songs, or to improvise. All of these skills are automatically benefitted when you build your riff bank.
Riffing Pro will teach you what a riff is, when you’ll need one PLUS the 8 different categories of riffing and how to use them.
- Chord riffs,
- Bass riffs,
- Melodic riffs,
- Rhythmic riffs,
- Riff magnets,
- Supportive riffs,
- Mixed riffs, and
- Riff Thief (ie, how to steal riffs from songs you know & love!).
Get started now!
Each riff is broken down step by step, with notation, slow play-through & demonstration within real-life context.

Let me tell you – there is nothing like this course on the market.
There are a couple courses that I’ve found that might teach you some riffs, I’ve also found specific courses on one genre, like jazz riffs or blues riffs. No other online course is teaching not only a broad range of riffing genres, but also giving you the tools to find & catalogue riffs yourself to continually grow your riff-bank.
Riffing Pro will save you TWO decades of learning hundreds of songs in order to glean riffs from them. I know this because it’s taken me over 20 years to collect these riffs from the piano greats of history and now I’m handing this on to you as a done-for-you riffing treasure chest.
Once you learn a few riffs you will be addicted. When it gets challenging, just know that the more difficult the riff in the beginning, the more satisfying it is when you finally master it.
- Never sit at the piano and wish you could do something other than block chords or arpeggios!
- Never stare at a blank white page wondering how to start writing a song!
- Never suffer that drop in the stomach when you’re asked to improvise a solo!
- Stop dreaming what it would be like to make your own unique piano arrangements.
Deep down you know that you have huge potential, you just need that right instruction that will help your creative piano playing click into place...
Start Riffing Pro today and I promise you'll feel more satisfied and proud of your progress as a creative pianist.
