Jack is hands down one of the best instructors I've come across on Udemy. His teaching style is engaging and thorough. I will be returning to this course as I carry on learning piano and theory. Already signed up for his Logic course as well. Thanks, Jack! Please make more courses :)

I studied music at the conservatory when I was a kid and forgot it all, as I hated it... this course was exactly what I needed. It's much clearer than the courses I was taking at the conservatory when I was a kid. And Jack is a great teacher, he makes everything easier and plus he seems to be a very nice and fun person!

Jack is an amazing instructor and explains concepts so they're very simple to understand AND he shows you right there on the piano what everything looks and sounds like. This course has everything I was looking for! I am a firm believer that MOST of the time if you find something confusing it just hasn't been explained in a way that makes sense to you.

Jack is extremely good at keeping you interested and excited to learn, I've watched the entire session in 1 week. I started to build a consistent practice routine thanks based on the principles he puts forward and can already sense a difference in just 2 weeks. Thank you Jack!

Jack has a great way to easily explain musical knowledge whilst making it super interesting to follow ! If you are an aspiring amateur composer like me, I definitely recommend this course, it sure has helped me a lot in expanding my compositions and the skills required to make them.

Adam Czajka

Very well presented, easy to follow, ample resources, couldn't recommend more.

Vincent Chung

Very clear, and concise explanation.

Jim Lakey

Extremely meticulous and well thought out course. Often courses on Udemy feel cobbled together, especially the larger ones. Jack clearly thought out each section and is very good at layering up knowledge without glossing over details or wasting time. Great teacher.

Great course and great teacher :) Lots of useful ideas and examples that were helpful for me even with years of making music behind me.
