About Jacques Hopkins and Piano In 21 Days
Let's start with a timeline
1986
I am born in New Orleans, Louisiana. My full name is Gregory Jacques Hopkins. Jacques was my great-grandfather’s name who was cajun-french. It’s also a great name for a piano teacher, don’t you think?
1991
I start taking piano lessons. I hate it. It’s boring. The songs are lame.
1992
I have my first piano recital. I wasn’t fond of the piano part but I absolutely loved the cake!
2003
I’ve taken piano lessons for 12 years but when anyone asks me to play I can only play 2 songs. I quit piano lessons but start looking for another way to play.
2006
I found another way to play. I’m learning new songs in minutes. And it’s songs I actually like. I put my first video on Youtube. It was the classic “Lips of an Angel” by Hinder.
2008
I graduate from college, go to work as an engineer, despite my desire to be an online entrepreneur.
2011
I get married. Miracles do happen.
2013
I had tried other entrepreneurial ventures without success. I found myself procrastinating with playing my piano when I felt I should be working on side businesses. I realize my side business should involve piano and I started Piano In 21 Days.
2015
My first daughter is born. We name her Annecy after the city in France we got engaged in.
2016
I quit my job. I was an engineer for 8 years. Now I’m an “online piano teacher”.
2017
My second daughter, Zoë, is born. Piano In 21 Days continues to grow. I start "The Online Course Guy Podcast" and help others create and grow their own online courses.
About The The Online Course Guy
For years I struggled to grow my own online course, Piano In 21 Days. Even $1,000 a month seemed like it would never happen. But finding the right mentors and training programs changed everything for me and eventually I was able to make more money from my online piano course than I did as an engineer.

Piano In 21 Days now runs on Auto-Pilot and I spend the rest of my working hours helping people create and grow profitable online courses.
