Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I need previous musical knowledge?
Not at all! Anyone with any level of musical experience can start playing with the PENTA™ method. There are no prerequisites other than reading English. The most important thing is your motivation to persist, play and progress.
Do I need a special keyboard or piano?
You will have to purchase (not from us) a standard piano or a 61-keys keyboard. A simple keyboard will cost about $100-200 and is perfectly suited for initial learning.
Is the course really free?
Yes! Our course books are completely free now and forever. With the course books alone, you can start playing and even writing beautiful songs using the PENTA™ language. We also offer songs and songbooks in PENTA™ format for purchase at a very reasonable price.
Why learn PENTA™ instead of using traditional sheet music?
PENTA™ is much easier to learn than standard sheet music. Learning to play will take you much less time than using the traditional methods. Despite its simplicity, the music that you will play will amaze the listeners.
What is the main obstacle in playing the piano and how does PENTA™ solve it?
Undoubtedly, playing different things with both hands, in a synchronized way, is the main obstacle for playing the piano. PENTA™ is an ingenious way that greatly simplifies the left-hand action, which accompanies the right-hand melody. Instead of learning complicated scores for the left hand, you learn a few basic rules and you are on your way to sound great!
