Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Week 1-3 seem heavier in content than Week 4-5?


Although the syllabus looks quite shorter in Weeks 4-5, compared to Weeks 1-3, the content is not lighter. In fact, it's heavier. Concepts are becoming more advanced with assigned theory homework to solidify certain concepts, as well as practicing the pieces that are given to you. After Weeks 1-3, pause and reflect on concepts learned so far before moving onto Weeks 4-5.




I purchased the course. I have a question regarding one of the concepts learned. How do I find out the answer?


You can post the question in our Facebook Member Group, in which myself, or perhaps another member, will be more than happy to answer. You may also email me personally at info@sarahjanemete.com as an alternative method.




Will I actually be able to learn how to play the piano after 5 weeks?


ABSOLUTELY! If, and only if, you are doing the weekly assigned theory homework, practicing your pieces daily (5 times a week minimum), doing your technique and finger independence exercises, and practicing with your musical glossary flashcards. Do not expect to purchase the course and become a piano master with just watching the videos. You must do the tasks mentioned above.
