1) Specifically Designed To Help Seniors Learn Piano

With song sheets and lessons designed specifically for students aged 50+, DecPlay makes it easy to learn songs on piano later in life and makes piano accessible to people with challenges such as arthritis, impaired sight and memory loss.

You are never too old to learn piano, as proven by Dee (aged 95), Jean (aged 95) and Harry (aged 90) and thousands of other seniors who have learnt using the DecPlay method. All you need is a passion for music and an effective method designed for the style of music you want to play.

2) Easy to Learn / Don’t Need To Read Notation

Many people struggle with traditional music notation (sheet music) and DecPlay removes this barrier by using a groundbreaking type of sheet music that beginners can easily understand within minutes. Another benefit is that it is accessible to people with low sight and dyslexia. It also enables students to encourage their children and grandchildren to play as it is easily understood by children as young as 4.

In addition to the simple song sheet format, DecPlay also uses a series of simple yet powerful ‘playing patterns’, based on the same patterns demonstrated by Sir Paul McCartney in the Netflix documentary 'McCartney 3,2,1'. These simple playing patterns enable you to play impressive sounding music from incredibly simple song sheets instructions. DecPlay extends the patterns further to enable melodies to be played without using 'notation' and enables thousands of songs to be played, including classics like 'Let It Be'.

3) Fast Results

Many students can play their first song within hours, using both hands and can play several songs within weeks. People with previous piano experience often find the process even faster, but no previous experience is required.

DecPlay is designed for popular music and highlights the simple patterns that exist in popular music (and also simple classical pieces such as Canon in D and the first sections of Fur Elise, Ode To Joy and Moonlight Sonata). This enables songs to be learnt quickly and memorised easily.
