The Next Best Thing to Private Lessons!
PianoGuideLessons.com was created especially for busy adults and was designed to be the next best thing to private lessons!
These lessons will take you from the very beginning to an advanced level, at your own pace, on your own schedule. In these lessons I will will take you step-by-step, note-by-note, showing you exactly how to play. So even if you know nothing about music, soon you will be enjoying playing piano and entertaining yourself, your family and friends.
Piano Guide Lessons will teach you how to play any kind of music. With the skills and knowledge you will gain from these lessons, you will know how to play any of your favorite pieces of music, and you'll even know how to play music that you've never heard before! Piano Guide Lessons features pieces in many styles of music including classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk, Latin and other genres. With this wide variety of music, you stay engaged in the lessons and you won't get bored!
Piano Guide Lessons includes 119 lessons derived from the Piano Guide Books, a series written for adult beginners. The lessons include text from the books in pdf form, so you can print out the lessons and keep them conveniently on your piano/keyboard. This way you don't have to turn on your computer just to practice your lessons.
You also get mp3 audio files of every musical piece, etude and example, so you can hear what the lesson is really supposed to sound like. Why? because everyone learns faster when they know what the music actually sounds like.
And of course, the lessons also include video, and in these videos I slowly and carefully play the lesson for you; left hand first, then right hand, and then hands together. This way you will see exactly how to play the lesson material.

Hello, I'm Peter Hostage, the creator of the Piano Guide Books and Piano Guide Lessons. I received my musical education from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and on stages throughout New England playing jazz, blues, rock, classical and more.
I've been teaching piano to adults for over 30 years, and I discovered what really works to help my students learn piano with less difficulty, less time, but with more fun.
I created Piano Guide Lessons because I found that many of the adult lesson books available were basically the publishers' "kids" books dressed up to look more “adult.” Their methods lacked the thorough music theory information that my lessons provide that help you learn music faster, with a deeper understanding of what you are playing. My lessons also provide much more variety and quantity of music to play, including classical, jazz, rock, folk, blues Latin and more.
With these online lessons that include video, text and audio files, you get the next best thing to having me give you private lessons, but what's even better is, you can have the lessons right there in your home, whenever you want to take a lesson! And you can repeat the lesson as often as you like!
PianoGuideLessons.com's mission is to provide you with a thorough, step-by-step piano education that is easy, fun and convenient. Start playing piano today and you'll soon enjoy entertaining yourself, your family and your friends!
What Students Say About Piano Guide Lessons:
I am new to music and I have bought 4-5 DVD/CD piano lesson programs, but your books and video lessons are the best I have found out of the many I have tried! The lessons ARE easy for beginners and you explain things just enough - not so much that I'm lost or overwhelmed, but enough so I understand what I am doing and why, and how to do it right.Cindy Burdue, USA
I must say that your teaching quality is second to none. It has helped me to progress quickly and efficiently. I would recommend your lessons to anyone who wants to learn. The value of these lessons is so good I would have had to pay much more money to have a teacher over here in the UK!Todd Beckett, UK
When I joined Piano Guide Lessons I was worried I might not have enough time to dedicate to lessons. But I am chugging along and enjoying my progress! What surprised me most about the lessons is that although they may seem at first too difficult to master, I definitely improve each time I practice them! I've found that these lessons are the next best thing to having a piano teacher actually sitting with you for your lessons!”Don Wolan, USA
Before starting Piano Guide Lessons, I was concerned whether I could actually stick to my practice schedule and not slacken off. But I've done remarkably well with that I'm happy to say. I'm pleased with the way you demonstrate fingerings etc. in the videos. Also - you don't pressure me to move on to something more complicated before I'm ready. I have recommended Piano Guide Lessons to my friends because I've been learning well, if slowly, and that is exactly what I need.”Vivien Edwards, Canada
