The Rhodes Piano Method enables students -- ages 4 to 104 -- to play the piano quickly and confidently. Rhodes’ innovative teaching approach, which includes composition and improvisation, allows instructors to teach musical concepts naturally and intuitively. Using Rhodes’ proprietary visual tools and techniques, students learn to play songs with both hands (melody and chords) very early in the learning process.
Rhodes Method Books are used in conjunction with favorite popular songs to connect students to the music they love. This motivates students to play more frequently and improve more quickly, dramatically increasing their learning and satisfaction. The Rhodes’ learning environment is energetic, positive and taps into the innate musicality of each student.
Groove has happily hosted Rhodes Piano since 2014.

The Rhodes Piano Method was created by Harold Rhodes who is best known for inventing the Fender-Rhodes Piano, an instrument whose iconic sound has been loved by musicians for decades. Rhodes' passion for music education inspired him to design this fast-paced, innovative method to accelerate the process of learning piano. What began in the 1930s as an initiative to give war veterans a sustainable avocation is now educating life-long piano players of all ages and abilities. Rhodes’ Method Books are on display in the Smithsonian Institute and Mr. Rhodes is the only musician to receive a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for teaching.
