I could read a bit of music and play tunes in my right hand but didn't know what to do with my left hand. 

Within days I learnt to play 2 songs, with both hands.

DecPlay makes it easy ..... it's fun! 

Eric (age 76)


I am now retired and over the years I had tried learning piano but found it overwhelming.

The DecPlay system made it possible for me to play right away, with just a modicum of practice, Genius!

I'm experiencing the pleasure of creating music for the first time in my life.



At 59 yrs I had never played an instrument and was unable to read music (having tried several times).

Within weeks the DecPlay system enabled me to play songs I love on piano.

It's great that I don’t need to 'read music' in order for me to play and enjoy the piano every day.



Learning Piano Later in Life

DecPlay students have proven that you are never too old to learn piano with many students starting to learn in their 70's, 80's and 90's. As long as you have the passion for music, the 5 Step Formula and a bit of practice will do the rest. 

What is Your Motivation .... Fun, Life Ambition, Legacy, Physio, Mental Agility?

I'm constantly inspired by the wonderful motivations that drive my students to take up piano.

For some, it achieves a lifetime ambition of playing piano, especially if they tried and failed to learn piano using traditional piano lessons. It's amazing to witness the moment when someone who has spent a lifetime believing they weren't musical, discovers that they CAN play piano. 

For others it's to be able to actually 'enjoy' playing piano after many years of 'old style' piano lessons, often with memories of a scowling teacher, terror of examinations and boredom of scales!

The mental, physical and emotional benefits of playing piano are widely known but it's especially heartwarming to hear students with physical challenges (arthritis, MS, stroke...) say how much playing piano has helped them. 

Leaving a Legacy of Music

For some, the motivation is to pass on a legacy of music to their grandchildren. Steve had fond childhood memories of family sing songs as his grandfather played piano. By the time Steve retired, there was no-one who played music in the family anymore, to he took it upon himself to learn piano, to encourage his grandchildren to play.  

Within days of learning the DecPlay formula, he was playing carols and having family sing songs. Within a few weeks, he had shown his granddaughters how to play Silent Night and a few days later, his daughter saw her children playing and wanted to give it a go too.  

The very next day, she sent Steve a video of her playing Silent Night as well - so within weeks of Steve Joining DecPlay, 3 generations of his family were playing piano

Playing Songs On Piano

The DecPlay 5 Step Formula makes learning piano much easier by using 'playing patterns' which uncovers the simple patterns that exists in most songs.

Similar playing patterns have been used by many professional musicians including The Beatles, but until now, they were inaccessible to piano beginners.

DecPlay makes these patterns easy to understand. This enables senior citizens to learn songs on piano within days / weeks, even if they have no previous musical experience, or have previously tried playing music and struggled.

Struggling With Traditional Sheet Music (Notation)?

Traditional piano sheet music shows the notes in the form of 'notation' which was a language designed for complex classical music.

As it is an 'abstract' language (dots on lines), it can take a long time to understand the language and some people never manage to master it. 

Professional musicians often use a much easier language which was designed for playing popular songs and DecPlay translates this language so it can be instantly understood by everyone, including beginners.

Challenges with Eyesight, Hearing, Concentration and Memory?

DecPlay is the only method designed for senior citizens and translates the music and playing patterns to make them easily accessible for people with:-

- visual impairment 

- impaired hearing

- arthritis 

- lack of concentration

- poor memory
