An English language version is now online!

After a year of work, we are very excited to make the Digital Piano Methodology available to all English-speaking users. Not only are all videos subtitled in English, but separate videos have also been created in which the graphics and texts within the videos are in English. We are also working on constantly improving the translations.

Enjoy the Digital Piano Methodology!

The "Digital Piano Methodology" on this website is the ideal complement to the book "Piano Methodology", which was published by Edition Peters in April 2022. For four years and in well over 1000 hours of work, the "Digital Piano Methodology" has been a worldwide unique further training offer for piano teachers, students and all those who would like to deal more intensively with artistic piano playing.

Methods, concepts, learning objectives, practice models and case studies of Christian A. Pohl's piano methodology can be experienced here and directly applied to one's own practice.

Those who wish to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of piano methodology will be introduced to Prof. Christian A. Pohl's piano methodology in an exciting and varied online course.

If desired, certificates can also be obtained upon completion of the courses.

Opinions

[...] This source of inspiration gives me further tools for lively lessons with my students that are fun. I am excited and looking forward to combining my newly acquired knowledge with my experience step by step and sharing it with my students in practice. By learning how to practise successfully, lovingly and with pleasure, I would like to motivate my students to be even more independent in a more detailed and fundamental way. Professor Pohl's promising tools are groundbreaking and open up completely new perspectives.

Knowing how - oriented towards the highest level, integrated into everyday life. This is the start of an exciting adventure for me that I enjoy. One of the advantages is that the variety of methods and their combination, individually tailored to the student, are endless. Mr Pohl succeeds in creating a precise overview with his work, offering the essence and depth of everything that has gone before. A great work from which piano teachers can only benefit.

Katja Fink
Piano teacher, 26 June 2023

I have been a piano teacher for over 40 years, but now that I have Prof. Christian A. Pohl's "Piano Methodology" in my hands, both as a book and as "Digital Piano Methodology", I wish I could start all over again!



The wealth of knowledge about the 26 methods, 13 concepts, 47 learning objectives, 23 practice models and case studies is almost unbelievable and invaluable, which is conveyed systematically and easily understandable despite all the scientific rigour. Applicable flashcards with creatively designed pictograms get to the heart of the matter.



Absolutely recommendable is the "Digital Piano Methodology"! Prof Pohl presents very well-explained teaching videos that have a great learning effect thanks to his calm, pleasant and appealing manner, are captivating and always arouse curiosity to try things out, enjoy playing the piano and look forward to what lies ahead. He skilfully and pedagogically consolidates the knowledge learnt in small tests. The "icing on the cake" is the participation of 10 of his own pupils, who can be sent videos, thus enabling more effective lesson preparation and realisation.
