Hi, I'm Declan - welcome to DecPlay, where learning piano is made fast, easy and fun.
My mission is to improve lives by making the joys of playing piano accessible to everyone, of all ages and abilities.
But a few years ago, things were quite different - until one night at a party …..
Even though I was trained classically on piano and violin, I spent most of my youth playing piano and guitar in pop/rock bands. For many years, I combined a day job as an internet entrepreneur, with a passion for playing music, songwriting and recording music. I loved playing gigs and doing studio recordings etc... but by far the most enjoyment I've ever had in music was creating an amazing atmosphere and connections between strangers, especially at an impromptu event such as a party, when I was asked to play something on piano. Fortunately, I had learnt how to play by ear, so I could instantly play any song I’ve ever heard before, so rather than having to think of what to play, I simply asked people around me what their favourite song was and the fun began! The buzz from being able to create magic moments, with everyone standing around the piano, singing their hearts out, changed my life.
Often people would come up to me and say that their biggest regret in life was that they hadn’t learnt to play piano when they were younger. When I asked what was stopping them learning now, they would recant myths such as you can only learn piano when you are young, or you have to come from a musical family, or you have to spend years of practice before you can play. I knew that this wasn’t true and would often try in vain to persuade them that if they have the passion, then they can learn piano, no matter what their age, family background or hectic lifestyle.
One night at a friend’s birthday party, a middle aged businessman said how much he regretted not learning piano and refused to believe that he was still capable of learning and I got so frustrated that I vowed that I would prove that anyone could learn to play a recognisable song on piano within weeks. At the time, I didn’t know how I could prove it, I just knew deep inside that if I had learnt how to work out how to play any song within a few seconds, just by remembering how the melody goes, it can’t be that difficult.
I had learnt to play by ear instinctively over many years and it took me 2 years to fully analyse and de-construct the process and then turn that into a teachable method that anyone could understand easily. This method (called ‘DecPlay’) has since been awarded a patent and has achieved phenomenal success with thousands of people in over 74 countries. It unlocks the natural musical talent we all possess and enables rapid development of a wide range of piano skills, from beginners through to professional styles, without the need to read traditional notation.
