Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People

Back by popular demand at Northeast Alabama Community College is a one-day workshop titled "Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People." This 3 Ĺ hour workshop will be Monday, January 27, 2014 beginning at 5:30 pm until 9:00 pm on the NACC campus. The workshop is intended for ages 12 and up. To ensure a seat please register by 4:00 pm Friday, January 24, 2014. 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.

"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 studentís own piano and leisure.

Cost of the class is $55, payable to NACC. 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 CD. Class location is the Charles Pendley Administration building (next door to theater), second floor room 204.
