In my teaching experience over the past 14 years, an intermediate is typically someone who've been playing for 3-6 years. However, it is entirely possible for someone to be "playing" for 7-15 years and still be intermediate. In fact, only about 30% of everyone who starts piano become a well-rounded, advanced player.

Therefore, the number of years you've been playing has nothing to do with your skill level, but rather the amount of knowledge (both theoretical and practical ) you have acquired during those years.
So, regardless of what you believe your skill level to be, to ensure you're not missing out on anything crucial, I highly recommend you start with the beginner courses and work your way up. You'll be surprised how the little things can make a huge difference in your playing.
Technique Building

Often times your growth and development have little to do with how many hours a week you practice, but rather how much time you spend crafting your technique. Different from practicing songs, the technique process begins from when you sit around the piano, the height of your arms, having a relaxed back, relaxed shoulders etc..

In this course, you will get all the technical tools you need to strengthen your fingers, develop speed, accuracy, and precision. If you aspire to play like me, then do as I did and make technique building a priority. Your technique is the foundation on which you will build your musical house, so, let's strengthen it together.

What to Practice and How to Practice?
Two of the most significant problems, a lot of piano student faces is trying to figure out what to practice and how to practice to ensure growth.
Honestly, without the help of a mentor, it is almost impossible to overcome this challenge, In this tutorial share my strategies and insight to help solve this issue. As we dive into 2018, let us begin to do things differently with some new approach so we can maximize our growth and progress.
The Walking Bass Practice Regimen

These walking-bass patterns will equip you with the necessary skills to walk bass when playing Jazz, Blues, Rock, Gospel, etc. You’ll no longer need to rely on a bass player.

With this course, you’ll not only learn 48 different walking-bass patterns over four popular chord progressions, but you’ll also develop robust left-hand techniques that are necessary for creating left-hand improvised lines.

While practicing scales also helps in strengthing the left hand, I find learning walking-bass patterns is a lot more fun and creative way of achieving both technique and musicality.

    How To Play Amazing Grace

    In this tutorial, you'll be learning the chord changes to Amazing Grace and see how I use little riffs to give it that bluesy-gospel touch. The video is then slowed down to 50% playback speed so you can really see what I'm doing.

    This video is meant for the later beginner and intermediate player.
