Instant Piano for
Hopelessly Busy People
Back by popular demand at Northeast Alabama Community College –
a one-day workshop entitled "Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy
People." This 3 ˝ hour workshop will be Thursday, July 21, 2011,
6:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. at the NACC campus. The workshop is
intended for ages 12 and up. To ensure a seat please register by
5:00 p.m. Thursday, July 14, 2011. Seating is limited.
If you yearn to experience the joy of playing piano, but you
don't want years of weekly lessons, this short course is for
you. In just one enjoyable evening, you can learn enough secrets
of the trade to make piano playing a part of your life, learning
chords, not notes. You'll learn all the chords needed to play
any song, any style, in any key.
The instructor is David Haynes of Ringgold, Georgia. “I make the
class a fun evening, but students often say they learn more in
these few hours than they have in five years of piano lessons,”
said Haynes. “This workshop does not conflict with a regular
piano program, because my students are generally not interested
in regular classical piano studies.” During the past ten years
Haynes has taught this workshop in 170 colleges and 17 community
programs and arts centers in 20 states, all to rave reviews.
This same workshop has enjoyed phenomenal success at hundreds of
college and university extension programs in California, Hawaii,
Oregon, and many other states since 1982, and the methodology
has recently been featured nationally on public television as
“Piano In a Flash.”
"Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People" teaches the chord
approach to playing the piano, which is preferred by many
adults. It teaches students to play by looking at the chord
symbols that are in most popular music today, instead of reading
all the notes the traditional way. This is literally a musically
correct but "shorthand" way of playing that produces instant
success in playing popular songs with both hands, even with
total beginners. A roomful of people can be taught with just one
piano in the room. Each student has a dummy keyboard at his
seat, and then takes home a 32-page book and 68-minute practice
CD with which a technique can be perfected on the student’s own
piano and leisure.
Cost of the class is $50, payable to the College. If you cannot
read music notes, send a self-addressed stamped envelope for a
FREE pamphlet to Music Masters, 90 Molly Lane, Ringgold, GA
30736. The instructor will collect $25 in class for a book and
