EXCLUSIVE: Discover the Magic Key Used by the Best Pianists to Play Anything Staggeringly Well

Ambassador

We host the best tutors. Quality of their profile, experience in their field. Hélio will be happy to arrange your first lesson Piano.

About the lesson

If you own a piano or a keyboard, you may know that painful feeling all too well: a burning desire to play your favorite songs, but not being able to play them as you would like.

Perhaps your fingers might feel weak and uncoordinated, and you feel as though there are too many notes and music theory concepts to memorize!

Maybe you just wish you could have learned to play when you were younger.

And as much as you truly love the music and are deeply moved by it, some sections prove difficult, or your playing might sound elementary or lack emotion. This is even more evident when you record yourself. The lack of guidance bothers you…

YouTube videos have helped… courses have been somewhat beneficial, as well as apps, but that feeling that something is missing keeps following you, and you don't know what to do… The teachers you find in the market end up not having the competencies you seek, whether performance-wise, or in teaching and didactics...

Personally speaking, I reached my limit one day: I felt that I could not progress further with piano. Severe pains in my wrists forced me to stop playing altogether.

I realized that I either had to change my way of playing, or I had to drop piano as a career. Then, I had an idea...During my time out, I watched videos of the best pianists in the world, and I analyzed how they played.

I started to study movements used by the greatest pianists in the world, such as Martha Argerich, Valentina Lisitsa, and Daniil Trifonov. This newly-acquired knowledge, coupled with the application of biomechanics, allowed me to fully recover from pain, and discover a new way to play, with more agility, comfort, and lightness.

From that day on, my life changed completely…

To be honest, many students begin learning piano from the wrong premise, which can lead to frustrating results.

Imagine yourself playing the most beautiful pieces of piano, with fluidity, emotion, and confidence.

Imagine gaining more agility, coordination, and creativity.

I help piano students attain these skills with a practical, step-by-step action plan which solves any challenge with agility.

Lessons are mainly in classical piano, although I also encourage my students to learn contemporary piano pieces, and I also teach improvisation, so that they can become well-rounded pianists.

The best part is that you can acquire these skills in the comfort of your own home, without having to follow a boring and rigid list of works to play. It’s time to learn piano wisely and effectively!

In addition to the lessons, you will get 2 PDFs that you can access from any device, as well as 70% off my Pianistic Technique course, Bulletproof Piano Technique.

I offer the first class for free as an opportunity to know each other.

In addition, if you are not satisfied with the classes within 15 days of paying the first monthly fee, I will refund all your money. It’s that simple.

But hurry now - there are only 4 spots left.

You can schedule a trial class now before places run out, and I'll give you my scales book, which comes with video lessons, so you can play faster, and with more coordination and comfort.

    Há quanto tempo você possui uma paixão pela música, pelo seu instrumento preferido e/ou técnica musical?

    Meu pai me conta que desde pequeno sempre gostei muito de música e que eu vivia cantando músicas japonesas quando criança. Mas eu diria que a paixão mesmo pelo piano só começou depois de vários anos depois de ter começado a aprender piano. No começo não só eu não gostava de estudar piano como também era muito preguiçoso e dava trabalho às minhas professoras. Foi na adolescência que eu tive contato com músicas de Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff e músicas japonesas de compositores como Joe Hisaishi e Toshiro Masuda, e foi aí que eu realmente me apaixonei pelo piano. Eu toco piano há 18 anos, mas essa paixão começou há cerca de 10 anos atrás.

    Qual música pode pode ouvir no repeat sem se cansar (ou ficar doido) ?

    Eu poderia ouvir a Sinfonia No. 2 de Rachmaninoff eternamente.

    Conte-nos sobre a aula mais difícil ou desafiadora que você já deu !

    Penso que as aulas mais difíceis são aquelas em que o aluno possui um bloqueio mental e não se permite tentar, achando que está fadado a fazer as mesmas coisas de sempre, sem conseguir aprender coisas novas. Às vezes algumas pessoas pensam que, se não acertarem de primeira, é porque não vão conseguir jamais. Há duas frases inspiradoras para o caso, a primeira é "a maior burrice humana é tentar a mesma coisa e querer resultados diferentes" do Einstein e "a cada vez que eu falhava em criar a lâmpada, eu aprendia uma nova forma sobre como não criar uma" do Thomas Edison. Aprender piano é estar disposto a errar e aprender com os erros, assim como também estar disposto para dar um passo para trás, indo mais devagar e pensando sobre o que vai realizar de novo, para poder dar dois passos para a frente.

  • 04

    Qual, na sua opinião, é o instrumento/técnica vocal mais difícil de tocar/aprender e por quê?

    Provavelmente o instrumento mais difícil de aprender é o violão erudito, que basicamente compreende por realizar polifonia (várias vozes) em um instrumento que depende das duas mãos para realizar cada som, isso deve ser extremamente difícil porque implica num entrelaçamento de informações em um nível que nenhum outro instrumento utiliza.

  • 05

    O que você considera ser a chave para o sucesso do aprendizado?

    A chave é ser pró-ativo. É ir e correr atrás sem precisar de ninguém te pressionando para isso. Não adianta querer aprender inglês, um esporte ou piano se a pessoa espera as coisas acontecerem. É ser o protagonista da própria vida e agir! Quem vai para frente no piano é quem busca as músicas que gostaria de tocar por conta, é quem assiste tutoriais e entrevistas relacionadas à música por conta própria. Talento é vontade de fazer em ressonância com ação.

    Cite três artistas que você amaria compartilhar um palco junto ! 😃

    Seria um sonho poder dividir o palco com Janine Jansen, Barbara Hannigan e Hiromi Uehara!

  • 07

    Divida conosco uma história engraçada referente à sua profissão !

    Já quebrei muito a cabeça tentando utilizar múltiplas câmeras para dar aulas online de piano. Fui atrás de tutoriais e tentei por vários dias, tendo até perdido o sono e ficando exausto após inúmeras tentativas. Eis que resolvi falar com um amigo que sempre formatou o meu computador e ele conseguiu resolver todos os problemas em poucos minutos!
    Muitas vezes quebramos a cabeça com problemas que algum amigo, colega ou professor pode nos dar uma luz em questão de segundos! Newton dizia que, se ele conseguiu ver mais longe, é porque se apoiou em ombros de gigantes, e penso que na minha profissão como artista e como professor, isso é mais do que uma realidade. É importante ajudar e ser ajudado, porque acender a luz do outro não apaga a sua e juntos somos mais fortes.

    Qual seu segredo para ser um Superprof com um fã clube de alunos?

    Se investir e reinvestir para alcançar cada vez mais um maior nível de excelência é o segredo. É imprescindível participar de festivais, oficinas, encontros, ter contato com grandes artistas e investir em recursos pedagógicos e tecnológicos.
