FREE ProPractice Video Pack - ALL Levels of Study
3 Early Beginner Lesson Modules, and a tutorial from the Mid-Late Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels
Welcome to the FREE ProPractice Video Pack, something I put together during the quarantine period of COVID-19 to help people stay busy and work on their piano skills, no matter what level of study they are at.
Included in this pack are the first 3 lesson modules of the Early Beginner Course (you need no prior piano playing experience to start these lessons), and a repertoire piece from the Mid-Late Beginner Course, Intermediate Course, and Advanced Course. All sheet music is included so you do not need to go to your local music store to pick up any of the scores.
I purposely chose less famous repertoire pieces from the Mid-Late Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced courses, since many of you may not have played these and they will provide a fresh new piece to work on during this challenging time.
I wish you and your families all the best in health and safety during this uncertain time.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected]
Each tutorial has dual camera angles, so you can see everything clearly from multiple perspectives!

"I have just now been practicing and notice that since I have joined your ProPractice course and watched multiple videos, I am finding my efforts so much more effective!! Massively better!!
I had been in a practice rut for a long time, not sure what I was doing really and kind of making it up based on my memories of what I had done in the past with teachers, but was not having great results or feeling any momentum and I was very flat and disillusioned about my abilities.
Since joining your course, I have made fabulous progress and am totally enjoying all that I play now, which is such a relief...
Challenging myself has become fun again and results are coming quickly and with more ease than I could ever have imagined.
My future is bright and exciting for me.
You are a phenomenal teacher. You teach people to THINK. Thank you from the bottom of my musician's heart."

"I have been studying the piano intensively for the last 6 years (I studied a bit as a child at the Conservatory, then quit, and re-started). I had a Suzuki teacher/colleague/friend for 3 yrs. Completed books 1-5. Then opened my piano studio. Became quickly full of students, mostly young children. Kept on studying: Did 3 Juilliard Online Courses, and kept on learning online: Piano Marvel, Piano Maestro, Flowkey, Simply Piano, Yousician, Synthesia, ... All great. But NEVER EVER as good as your instructional ProPractice course. It is by far, the best I have known so far. You have a unique talent for explaining and describing exactly that which needs to be understood. Your skills as a professor are unequaled. Investing in your mentorship is definitely my best purchase of any course. Thanks again, and best wishes :)

"Dr. Wright’s ProPractice Series is a great source of technical insight on piano practice and performance; however, it is so much more. A source of motivation and inspiration for pianists of all ages and skill levels. Moreover, the large quantity of high-quality videos is an excellent opportunity for hobbyists as well as aspiring professional pianists to discover a wide variety of repertoire through the detailed demonstrations. All in all, I recommend it wholeheartedly."

"I came upon Josh’s ProPractice videos as I was searching internet tutorials on the Chopin Etude I was playing then. I found it really amazing. The video went over all the difficult parts of the piece and Josh explained how he tackled each of them. I felt I really improved after implementing the tips explained in the video. The repertoire covered is beautiful, with all the pieces that one dreams of playing!"

"Josh's ProPractice videos are concise, informative, and easy to follow. Josh goes in-depth step by step. He gives a lot of tips and advice during the videos on how to practice smarter. And the best part: you get to have a private tutor at your convenience anytime of the day. I’ve learned a lot from him. Josh is an amazing teacher and mentor."

“I am a self taught pianist, who has struggled for many years to play most of my favorite pieces, (Chopin) on a technical level. With Josh’s lessons, I have been able to understand the mystery behind Chopin’s genius..sometimes how making a simple rotation of the hand, can mean the difference between 4 hours of unsuccessful practice and five mins of brilliance. My hats off to this outstanding teacher”.

"Josh's ProPractice Series is a valuable resource (with lots of pro's tips!) for all pianists who want to make beautiful music at a very affordable price. It is so flexible especially for busy people, because you can view it 24/7 anywhere in the world."

"Recently, my piano instructor indicated that I reached the early intermediate level as a result of significant practice in various aspects of piano (technique, sight reading and repertoire) over the last two years. As an adult beginner, I was able to reach that level in that time frame utilizing to a large extent the ProPractice Series and the VIP MasterClass Series, both by Dr. Josh Wright.
Like a lot of adult beginners trying to figure out the best way to delve into piano, I first searched Youtube for the beginner level videos and found the channel of Dr. Josh Wright, which has over 60,000 subscribers. As most of his viewers know, he has made all types of videos over the years including technique, performance, and general music discussion. I first started with scales and eventually watched many of these videos including one of my favorites, “Is It Too Late To Learn Piano?"
After weeks of reviewing Dr. Wright’s Youtube videos, I realized I needed more in depth instruction on piano technique, which led me to the ProPractice series and then to the VIP MasterClass Series.
Regarding the ProPractice Technique Series, these videos give instruction on all scales, triads, arpeggios and 7th chords and various techniques to practice them. Needless to say, each video had a wealth of information that tremendously helped me improve my piano skills as I was able to focus on practicing the core of piano technique correctly, and that is the most important criteria in any video series."
