UK Software Engineer Gives Musiah’s Online Piano Lessons The Thumbs Up

11 October 2013

Trevor _Holmes _Musiah _Online _Piano _StudentEach day, I review student progress to see how all Musiah students are going.


And one student who recently came to my attention is Trevor Holmes, age 59, of Leicester UK (pictured opposite).


Yesterday, Trevor completed Level 5 of the Musiah piano course — that’s an impressive 74 songs in 7 weeks since he began taking piano lessons with Musiah on 22 Aug 2013.


So I emailed Trevor to compliment him on his recent progress and asked, “Just out of interest, have you played before?” (it’s always nice to know a little about my students).


And what a delightful story I received in reply.


Here’s what Trevor shared with me about his musical journey…




Hi Brendan,


I played Clarinet when I was a child, packed it up when I was 12, so I guess that helped with my music reading. 


Didn't have any more to do with music till about 25 years ago when I tried to teach myself to play the organ. Didn't have much joy unfortunately and gave that up after a couple of years. I regret not continuing then, but I just didn't seem to make any progress.


I saw a bargain Organ for auction last month and put in a speculative bid. When I won the auction I thought 'Wow, what do I do now'. I didn't want to fail again so I searched for on-line lessons and read the Musiah reviews. My daughter gave me a midi keyboard and that was it, I took my first lesson and now I'm completely hooked.


I'm so glad I found this course.


I really enjoy the lessons. Can't wait to get home from work in the evenings and settle down to practice for an hour or so.


Musiah is a great teacher with infinite patience! He never tires and is always available. If I wake in the night now, rather than reading, I practice music and enjoy the interaction with the virtual band.


Finally I'm able to read the bass clef instead of being tied to chord symbols.


In short, what a great product. I have never progressed in music like this before.


As a software engineer I can appreciate how much effort must have gone into creating this system.


Many thanks.




Trevor Holmes.

Apprentice Musician.




Sincere thanks Trevor for both your kind feedback, and for sharing your story.

What people say about Musiah


Great program , the learning it s fast , easy and fun i spent like a year and a half learning some piano lessons on DVD and could play some RH songs but did not knew any notes reading now in 2 months i definitely excelled more then i did in a year ...I am 32 years old at the moment and i thought it might be a little too late to learn playing but with Musiah my confidence and dreams are coming true , was a bit skeptical in the beginning but since i tried the trial on the first day i knew I ll be staying with it . Thanks a lot to Brendan Hogan you are awesome .
