Is DecPlay only in the Key of C Major?

The first stages of the DecPlay method such as FastPlay, are based on the scale of C Major, which is the easiest musical key to learn and therefore the fastest. Most people never need to play in any other key, if they are playing piano without singing.

If you intend to play piano and sing, occasionally you may need to play in other keys, if you need to adjust to a particular singer’s range and this is covered by the more advanced stages of the tuition method (available by private tuition and being added to the online course in 2015). The DecPlay method makes transposing into different keys very easy, as the song sheet remains unaltered and you simply change the start point of the scale for example to play in the key of G – note 1 and chord 1 start on G instead of C and you follow the G major scale.
