Course Questions

What is Sound of Emotions?

Sound of Emotions is more than just an online piano school—it’s a complete music education experience packed into one accessible platform. From beginners to advanced players, our curriculum focuses on blues, jazz, and contemporary classical styles, with elements of pop, funk and latin piano sprinkled throughout. With over 590 video tutorials, detailed workbooks, and backing tracks, we provide everything you need to start playing and creating music right away.

What is the difference between your YouTube Channel and the Sound of Emotions site?

Soundofemotions.com contains all the lessons I have developed over many years of teaching piano to my private students, covering levels from absolute beginner to advanced. The Sound of Emotions method is designed to remove the guesswork from learning piano. Each lesson builds on the last, ensuring you’re ready before moving to the next step. There are no random lessons; everything is structured to ensure you know exactly what to practice next. If a lesson is unclear, you go back; if it’s mastered, you move on.

The David Magyel YouTube Channel features random Jazz, Blues, and Pop piano lessons, mostly for advanced players. I use this channel to test new concepts and explore ideas that interest me, which don’t necessarily fit into the structured curriculum of the website.

Do I also get full access to all courses with a monthly membership?

Absolutely! Full access isn’t limited to Lifetime memberships. With any active membership, whether monthly or yearly, you enjoy complete access to all courses—referred to as modules in our online piano course.

Will I get access to new lessons and modules released after I start my membership?

Yes, you will have access to all new lessons and modules released as long as your membership is active.

What are the different plan and pricing options?

Currently, we offer three subscription plans:

  • Monthly Plan: $49.95, billed montlhy.
  • Yearly Plan: $239.40, billed annually.
  • Lifetime Plan: $749, one-time payment. Alternatively, you can choose a payment plan of $375, billed twice over two months, after which no further payments are required.
Can I buy just one module?

If a full access monthly or yearly subscription isn’t quite right for you, or if lifetime access is beyond your budget, please contact us directly to discuss purchasing the specific module you’re interested in.

Can I upgrade from a monthly membership to a yearly or lifetime one and save money?

You can easily upgrade your membership through your account settings, whether you have a monthly or yearly plan.

Here’s how:

1. Log in to your account.

2. Click on “My Account.

3. Select your current plan.

4. Click on “Next” to review your new plan, where you’ll see the discounted price based on your current membership.

5. Click “Confirm” to switch to your chosen plan.

Reach out to us if you need help.

Will I be automatically charged?

Yes, you’ll be charged on the same date each month or year as your initial subscription.

Can I cancel the automatic renewal of my membership?

Yes! You can cancel at any time through your customer dashboard:

1. Log in to your account.

2. Click on “My Account.”

3. Go to your current plan.

4. Select “Cancel Plan.”

If you need assistance, feel free to reach out to us.

If I cancel my yearly membership, do I get a refund for the rest of the term?

No, there are no refunds for cancellations. If you cancel an annual membership, you’ll continue to have access until your current term expires. If you’re unsure about committing for a full year, consider our monthly membership option instead. It bills you monthly, and you can cancel at any time to stop future payments from the next billing cycle.

Who can I speak to if I need help?

If you need help, feel free to email us at hello@soundofemotions.eu. Peter, my childhood and best friend, handles billing and technical queries. Although he works diligently to respond as quickly as possible, please note that he also has a full-time job outside of customer support for Sound of Emotions. Therefore, we aim to follow up on all weekday inquiries within 48 hours.

Do you explain things in your videos?

I prefer to explain music through music itself. Believing that everything can be taught through musical demonstration, I developed a unique system to teach piano—focusing on playing rather than talking about it. This approach was shaped by my experiences with students from various countries, many of whom did not speak English, making my lessons primarily visual and practical.

However, you will also find detailed written descriptions for each video. These descriptions explain what you will learn in each lesson, why it’s important, and how to get the most out of it. They include the minimum requirements needed to progress, essential music theory, and occasionally, I share common mistakes, general struggles with self-expression through improvisations, and some of my personal piano stories as well.

What kind of feedback do you provide?

It varies from student to student, but here’s how it typically works: Once I receive some information from you, such as the modules you’ve completed, the module and lessons you’re currently working on, and a video link of you playing the exercise you want feedback on, I’ll review your video. Then, I’ll let you know what was good and what could be improved either via email or directly under your unlisted YouTube video.

If your performance was good, I’ll simply write you a short comment to let you know you are awesome and ready to continue with the curriculum. However, if something was not quite right and it bothered my ears, I will tell you exactly what you need to work on before you can move on. Moreover, if I notice the same issue coming up frequently among other members, I will create additional videos to help address these common problems.

How long does it take to complete the curriculum?

New students, especially absolute beginners, typically take about 5-7 years to go through the complete curriculum. However, there are different types of learners, each with different needs, and all of that is addressed within the curriculum as well. Whether you want to progress quickly by focusing on the essence of each lesson or to extract the most from every lesson and concept, the curriculum guides you on how to achieve your goals effectively.

How do I know if this is the right piano course for me?

We’ve created a free course featuring 24 sample lessons to give you a thorough preview of our curriculum. Inside, you can explore what each module covers, see exactly what you’ll receive—such as the number of videos, workbooks, and play-along tracks—and even try out a lesson or two from every single module. This also allows you to test the interface, navigation, and user-friendliness of our platform. Within the lesson videos, you can check the style of my teaching, the style of the exercises, and the practical guidance I provide for each lesson. If you have any doubts after using the sample lessons, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re more than ready to assist and provide any further guidance you might need.

Can I receive a refund if I find the course isn’t a good fit for me?

Due to the immediate access to our digital content, including downloadable piano workbooks, we do not offer refunds once a purchase is completed. However, we understand how crucial it is to find the right course for your needs. That’s why we’ve bundled 24 sample lessons into a free course, giving you a comprehensive preview. You can explore what each module covers, see exactly what you’ll receive—such as the number of videos, workbooks, and play-along tracks—and even try out a lesson or two. This also allows you to test the interface, navigation, and user-friendliness of our platform. If, after this experience, you are still unsure whether the course is right for you, please reach out to us. We are more than happy to assist and provide further guidance.
