Because you deserve more
Playing the piano is difficult and takes a lot of time and effort. As a result, you end up practicing pieces over and over while trying to play faster, clearer, with no mistakes and expressing all the emotion you want to convey. However, even if you are playing slightly better each day, you still feel that something is missing. Considering the amount of practice and effort you put in, it doesn't seem like you are getting the results that you expected.
There are secrets you don't know about. Neither do your teachers
Most piano teachers claim that they can teach you how to play difficult pieces, such as Chopin's Ballade No. 1. But can they? Or they might tell you that it is about interpretation or provide general advice such as instructing you to relax, play slowly with a metronome and increase the tempo gradually, keep the wrists flexible, use the weight of your arms and focus on listening and sound quality.
Go beyond what the traditional teaching offers
Now, don’t get me wrong. All of the previous advice and tips mentioned are good and very important. But they are not enough; they are just superficial and obvious things that every music teacher says. As a result, you still can't improve as fast as you want, no matter how much you practice. Yes, repetition plays a crucial role in skill enhancement. But you've certainly heard Einstein’s famous quote “...insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results", right?
The course for those who want to achieve more
Bulletproof Piano Technique is an online course that promotes a high level of performance using movements based on the biomechanics of the human body.
As a result, you will learn how to adopt a correct posture, which will enable you to get rid of bad habits, and help to prevent pain and discomfort when playing the piano. Even if you feel that your playing is already comfortable, with this course you will achieve even more comfort, speed, accuracy and a better sound.
We will start with the basics of piano technique using concepts from biomechanics and then advance towards practical examples featuring pieces such as Moonlight Sonata 3rd Movement (Beethoven), Ballade No. 1 Op. 23 (Chopin), Etude Op. 10 No. 4 (Chopin), Chopin Etude Op. 25 No. 12 (Chopin) and Fantasie-Impromptu Op. 66 (Chopin). Even if you cannot play these pieces as yet, this course will provide you with the background technique needed to take you one step closer to playing the piano the way you dream of.
Who this course is for
This course is for intermediate and advanced students, professional pianists and teachers. The concepts covered in this course come from various sources, such as body mapping, biology of the human body, techniques taught by Thomas Mark and G. Sandor, Newtonian Physics, Taubman Technique, principles taught by Seymour Berstein, Jovanni-Rey de Pedro, Marisa Rosana Lacorte and some techniques adapted by myself.
How this course works
As soon as you join the course, you will have access to the course's pre-recorded video lessons. As an addition to the course material, for a duration of six months you will also have access to a monthly exclusive live masterclass for Q&A, feedback and personalized assistance.
Who is Hélio Tanomaru
Hélio Tanomaru is a Japanese classical pianist and teacher who works with students to solve technique and performance related issues at the piano.

How much is the investment?
All the lessons in this course would be the equivalent of at least 6 months of private lessons with me. Which means that the total cost would be 6x $240, which is $1440.
Studying the piano is expensive, and lack of money was always a big issue in my life to improve my skills at the piano. So this course is designed to be priced at $497,00.
But for the first class that we are opening now we have a special time-limited offer of $297,00.
This is the main course at Tanomaru Piano Academy. It will be continuously improved and more videos and materials will be added.
