Since there were no lessons like ours when we started, we needed to create a new category of videos, and we call them “HYBRID Piano Lessons”. Some people use overhead video cameras to teach piano, and others use piano software to demonstrate songs. But we are proud to be the first ones to intelligently combine both into one—a whole new kind of piano lesson—HYBRID Piano Lessons. Half of the screen has a real piano instructor’s hands showing you exactly what to do. The other half of the screen is captured from the world’s most popular piano training software, Synthesia. The two halves meet in the middle and overlap perfectly to give you the best view of the song without any distractions.
We don’t currently offer any form of permanent downloads such as MIDI files or sheet music. However, a project is in the works to offer this feature in the near future. We hope to offer digital downloads for our top lessons starting in the Summer of 2013. Due to the nature of copyrights and licensing fees, these downloads will be a separate cost from our video subscriptions.

Our basic stance is that we have “a no refund policy”. We offer free trials to our subscriptions so anyone can try out the site risk-free to see if they like it or not. If a customer is not satisfied, we expect that they will cancel their subscription before their 1st payment. If you feel like our free trials are not long enough to evaluate the site, please share your experience with us.
During checkout, you created a username and password. Visit the My Account page (http://hdpiano.com/my-account/) and login to your account. As long as your free trial or subscription is still active (and you are logged in) you’ll be able to browse, search for, and view every video available on our website. Check our Full List of Videos to be sure you can see the “Members Only” video thumbnails. Your free trial should be active immediately after completing your PayPal checkout.
Some songs simply contain one loop that repeats throughout the entire song. So, by teaching the loop, we have essentially shown you the whole song. Other multiple-part songs are also relatively simple to piece together if you’re familiar with the song.
Starting in May 2013, for more elaborate songs, we began posting “Whole Song” demos (for our members only). In these videos, members can see a full speed demo of the song in our typical HYBRID video style. These videos do not include step-by-step instruction since that is still covered in the individual lessons for each song. For the lessons made prior to May 2013, that don’t have a “Whole Song” demo, we’re working to catch up on those each week. Please send us a request if there is a song that you’re having trouble putting together, and we’ll make sure it’s on our to-do list.
Recording “Whole Song” demonstrations was a top request from our subscribers, and we thought it was a great idea. We’re happy to now be offering it to our members. ~Thanks

For song request, be sure to include the following in your message:
Song title & artist
Official music video (YouTube link)
A little about you and how you found HDpiano.com
Your HDpiano.com username (requests from members get top priority)
You can probably imagine that we get more requests than we can possibly keep up with. We do our best to teach as many as we possibly can, but please understand if we cannot get to yours in a timely fashion.
Your request is more likely to be chosen if the song is new, piano-based with vocals, and has an official YouTube video with over 1 million views (the more the better).
